Rumor: PS3's Mass Effect 2 May Allow You to Make Mass Effect 1 Decisions

Scrawl is reporting on what appears to be some sort of confirmation about what the PS3 Mass Effect 2 disc will contain, and there is a rather welcome surprise in there. We’ve known for a while that it would contain all the DLC that has been released to date for Mass Effect 2, including the three excellent extra stories: Kasumi’s Stolen Memory, Overlord and Lair of the Shadow Broker. What’s interesting about this post over at the Bioware Social Network, is that it points out that an interactive comic, designed by Dark Horse Comics, will be included. The purpose of this is two-fold – it’ll let PS3 players catch up on the story from the first Mass Effect, as well as allow you to choose decisions that you would have been able to make had you played the full game.

As with the source site, we’ll label this a rumor for now, as there really has been no official word from Bioware, however, how awesome would that be? If they can’t release the original Mass Effect for the PS3, they’ll do everything in their power to help you have a full and complete experience. This is why I love Bioware.

Finally, also of note, it seems there may be another mission, exclusive to the PS3 version of the game, which will add about six hours of play time to the title overall. How nifty. I might just have to ditch my Xbox 360 copy and pick up the PS3 version when the time comes.
