The name is not GAMMA, but the word starts with 'G'. At least, in the development...

Genesis sounds cool too...

ME2 + DLC but, any word about ME1?, is it included or maybe there will be a summary?

I own both games and I'd still rebuy the for the PS3. I've played them for about 120 hours each, according to Steam.

On the subject matter, I'd assume that anyone who was really interested in the series had already played it on 360 or PC...

I've gone through both games on 360 and I can't even see the trophy whore in me wanting to invest the hours to play through both games again. It only makes sense if they want to multiplatform the 3rd title... but given that the first two have been exclusive to the 360, it'd be hard to see MS letting gone of the the franchise exclusivity...

I'd say this will be release right along side the MGS4 trophy patch. :lol

hopefully if true the port isn't being done in-house. i would much rather have resources focused on ME3 or a decent xpac.

GTA episodes was also an exception, they didn't even add platinum trophies which they could have easily done.

Speaking of them, the PS3 port was first seen at Gamescom last year... it was officially announced much later in January 2010.

I'm just saying, your position is like going to a luxury wine house and leaving because you ordered a Coke and didn't like it. Dragon Age PS3 runs and looks badly, so does the 360 version, but they weren't even developed by Bioware. ME2 360 runs very, very well adn it seems the PS3 port was being worked on at the same time as the other versions so it's not unreasonable to think that it'll run well.

Same here. If true I'm tempted to resell it even though I've since upgraded to a Slim. There aren't really any other 360 exclusives that I care too much about (maybe Gears 3).

Was probably the only thing they could say. They couldn't say 'you're lying' and they couldn't say 'Mass Effect 2 is in development for the PS3, YOU GOT US LOL'.

So... IF we can trust each other here on GAF, we now basically have confirmation for:

Mass Effect: Genesis

- will be announced for the PS3 in the near future (likely tomorrow at the GamesCom pc of EA and/or Sony).

- it's not clear yet what ME:G contains. ME2 is a given (IMO, foundation for a multiplatform ME3 release), playable ME1 would be a surprise (deal with MS) and any existing DLC included would just be natural.

Bioshock 1 did get extra content (the DLC challenge rooms and NG+), Orange Box wasn't a late port, it was just delayed on PS3. But yeah, GTA Episodes seems to be an exception. The requirement is definitely real though.

I'm hoping it's Mass Effect 1+2 in one game retold, without the silly sidequests and purely story driven. Gameplay from ME 2 and more singing by Mordin.
Also make my female (the true) Shepard be able to romance Yvonne Strahovski damnit! Are you telling me my ME 1 lesbian Shepard can't have female on female action in ME 2?!

I think MS was really silly if this is finally true, they should have cover their backs when the Bioware buyout or maybe they didn't care about it...

Couldn't Mass Effect: Genesis just be a prequel to the games? It would still be a trilogy, but Mass Effect 2 is the ending of it.

I haven't finished ME2 though so don't listen to my shit.

Edit: It would be cool if ME:G is a prequel that actually change things in ME and ME2 if you go back to them! What a twist!

Well, it came out on November 20th, 2007 so if they release it one day past that it will be 3 years. So that sounds a like a decent enough window they could have agreed on.

You can be interested. :P

My intended point was somewhere along the lines of "people who REALLY REALLY WERE DYING TO PLAY THE GAME would have already done so on one of the other platforms.".

I mean, hell, if they announced Twilight Princess for the PS3 or 360 tomorrow, I don't know how many people would care -- I'd guess a majority of the people who were interested in a title that's almost 4 years old would have played it on a wii or a gamecube by now.

So I was applying similar logic to a game that's almost 3 years old now. Temper that argument a little if ME2 is part of it, as ME2 is only 8 months old.
