274w ago - According to Kikoo.pl, some PS3 code found in the PC version of Mass Effect 2 reveals that the title may come to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

Mass Effect going multi-platform is one of those things that have been speculated about constantly since Electronic Arts bought BioWare back in 2007.

To quote: "EA is not known for having console exclusives and prefers to put its titles on every console in existence.

However, BioWare had an exclusivity with Microsoft for the original Mass Effect to appear only on the Xbox 360 and PC and it is presumed that the exclusivity deal extends to the game's sequels as well.

Meanwhile, Electronics Arts is skillfully deploying "No comment" lines when CVG asked about the possibility of Mass Effect 2 appearing on the PlayStation 3. Check out the code that Kikoo claims to have found for yourself below."

Tried this game on a friend and I did't like it much. However, when I rent it for the PC sometime later, I loved it. It would be so nice to have a (good of course) PS3 port!

We do this kind of stuff on your web systems we leave behind a lot of code and then come back and copy paste and reuse it commenting only what we dont need and using what we were after.

That's the correct answser. When a developer starts to begin with his game then their's (most of the time) an idea for the game, not what platform. (Oke, only when he has to chose between PS3 XBOX360 and PC. When its WII or something like that then thats known from from the begining. And excluded exclusives)

So when the company starts to develop they code everthing for the 3 platform. When the decision is made, they aro going the refine only the parts that they really need. This (most of the time) only applies to the Unreal Engine.

I have wanted to play Mass Effect for forever, but I haven't the capabilities to run it (I only have a ps3 or a low-end laptop). It would be amazing if they brought this series to ps3, but I'm not so sure if it would happen.

I think I read that this has to do with the multiplatform engine (Unreal engine). Even Gears of War has the same code in it.

i think its just some leftovers somewhere... maybe even not done by BioWare itself...

i also noticed some months ago that Borderlands.exe still had Code/Infos about XboxLive... but instead it uses something else for Multiplayer (on pc at least).

I think the game was Bioshock, which in the end was released for PS3.

It might just be from part of the enigine. I think I remember seeing something like that on another game but i could be wrong, my mind has been messing with me lately.
