The EA Mass Effect series of sci-fi action games, previously exclusive to the Xbox 360 and Windows PC plaforms, is to land on PlayStation 3 in January 2011.
BioWare confirmed plans to release Mass Effect 2 on the PS3 today at GDC Europe 2010, implying it’s long been working on a port, and added the PS3 version will include the full version of Mass Effect 2 alongside “hours of bonus content.”.
Mass Effect 2, which released in January for PC and Xbox 360 is one of the year’s best titles, weaving stellar storytelling with an overhauled combat system.
PlayStation owners without access to an Xbox 360 or a gaming PC can comfort themselves with the knowledge that Mass Effect 2 rated even higher than the award-winning debut.
Several other titles that formed part of EA’s press conference also had PlayStation 3 tie-ins – Dead Space 2 will include a version of the Wii’s Dead Space: Extraction, and Medal of Honor coming with legacy title Medal of Honor Frontline – leading to speculation about a special relationship between the two companies.
