Mass Effect 2 PS3 Version Details Clarified

Last week we reported on what was rumor at the time, about some features that were going to be included on the BluRay for the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 when it comes our way in January. Bioware has officially commented on these points now, and has confirmed most of them. Here’s what they had to say:

  • The interactive comic that will catch players up on the first Mass Effect, as well as let them make some of the major decisions to shape their Mass Effect 2 experience is confirmed.
  • The downloadable missions that have been released so far for Mass Effect 2 will all be included on the disc is confirmed – this includes Kasumi’s Stolen Memory, Overlord and Lair of the Shadow Broker.
  • A code to access the Cerberus Network, as well as access to all the smaller bits and pieces of DLC is confirmed.

There is one thing that was an error from the original rumor, and since it was translated from German, we’ll just blame it on a translation issue.

  • The six hours of additional, PS3-exclusive content is not, in fact, real. This was in reference to the disc-exclusive DLC missions (since they aren’t available on the disc for the 360, they are “disc-exclusive”), which total about six hours of additional game play in addition to the main story.

But, PS3 gamers rejoice, because this sounds like a game that is going to be well worth your $60 when it is available. It’s also nice of Bioware to clear some of this stuff up.
