The lights are on
EA still hasn’t announced whether or not it will bring BioWare’s space opera over to the PlayStation 3, but that doesn’t mean a PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 isn’t in the works. According to EA’s Russian website, Mass Effect 2 is listed for both Microsoft and Sony systems. This could be a typo, however, the website Just Push Start noticed that the Australian retail chain Game also has Mass Effect 2 listed for a PS3 release. Hopefully, this means that PlayStation 3 owners can look forward to taking the Normandy for a spin sometime next year. We wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on what promises to be an epic ride.
[Update] In a recent interview with Eurogamer, EA stated that these posts were, in fact, mistakes, and the PS3 tag on EA's Russian site has been removed. However, we're still willing to bet that the game will be coming to PS3 at some point. Sorry PS3 owners, we have our fingers crossed for you.

At least they get uncharted 2.
*Wants uncharted 2 but no ps3*
No thanks, I already played it on PC and it bored me to tears :(
Good... if you own a PS3. Not good if you want to compare consoles in the forums...
if this happens, i hope they bring the first one too
Im still keeping my finger crossed.
Hmmm,I say typo --- but the alternative isn't so bad.
That would have been an interesting development.
some games should just stay exclusive
"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!, but seriously, would Microsoft even allow that? or would EA just go, "screw you guys, Im going home"?"
Seriously? No? With that many -Os? What does it matter to you? I would think if you were being excluded from the game would be the only time you care about exclusives. Unless you work for MicroSontendo.
I'm with the people that say more people that play a game the better .Games are about the developers, not the publishers, or the corporations that own the consoles.
I also care because I have a PS3, and that'd be one less reason to buy a 360, that is if they ever decide to put Mass Effect 1 on PS3. However I already planned to get it on PC if they weren't going to. There are really only a few games left on the 360 that are still keeping the option open for buying a 360. I will buy a 360 if i have to, I'm just so completely drowned in all the quality games I already have access to that I'm glad my girlfriend is working overtime all week so that maybe I can catch up to maybe play a newer game like Uncharted 2, Crack in Time, while I still have a load of older games to play.
Anyways, to reiterate:
"Who cares what platforms it is released on. I am sick of all these exclusive games. I just wish every game was released on every console."
Right on. Philosophy of the future--constructive.
"Typo, I'm sure. Exclusives need to stay exclusive. People buy the consoles the exclusives they want are on."
Wrong on. Destructive philosophy.
Wow i hope it is true ^^
i played MAss effect 1 on my pc it was Great
From what I hear Mass effect is awesome. I would definitely like see for myself, as I believe I would be able to confirm their thoughts.
X-Box Fanboys can keep this one
Whether a philosophy is "constructive" or "destructive" is entirely subjective.
Right isn't necessarily right, and wrong isn't necessarily wrong.
Shouldn't be so bigoted.
Why bring a franchise to the ps3 that is in the middle of its trilogy?
^^^ sales = money
As long as there's a profit I don't think they care.
If you go to Best Buy to pre-order Dragon-age, it says you can get special armour for dragon age and also Mass Effect 2, on the PS3 box. Maybe it is a mistake but I foung it funny. And hope it is true.
***. It looks like a really good game, i hope I get the chance to play.
guess microsoft sick of loosing money by buying exclusives , well I hope they get all the bugs out before release, mass effect is great cant wait to see if they make visual effects better but it will probally bbe like all other ports and be full of bugs and glitches
I'll buy it either way on either system, don't feel bad fanboys even if it is true you still got fable and and halo not that I think halo is any good but you still got it.But I guess now that price dropped , ps3 made huge improvements to there online community, and now might be getting some exclusives to port over what you guys going to complain about? I'm sure youll make up something
Does this not remind you of Left 4 Dead?
