First Mass Effect 2 Trailer: Further Proof the Series is PS3-Bound?
About a month ago, we told you about the whispers we heard of the Mass Effect trilogy heading to Sony's console. Now it seems Bioware is implying the same thing.
In the first trailer for Mass Effect 2, Bioware gives us some interesting tidbits about the story: apparently, your character, Shepard, is assumed dead. It also seems many of the characters from the original game will appear in the sequel.
However, the most interesting thing about the trailer was the information it didn't give...
First of all, Bioware failed to mention a release date, which points to a 2010 release date; if Bioware was planning to release the game in the fall, they would have probably included the date in the trailer.
And secondly, the trailer fails to flash a console's logo. If Bioware was still in cahoots with Microsoft there would definitely be a big green "X" somewhere in the trailer.
Obviously, this is far from solid evidence. However, this coupled with the previous rumor (and other rumors that have subsequently popped up) makes it seem very likely that Mass Effect 2 will be playable on the PS3 whenever it releases.
