Interactive Comic, Paid DLC Included with PS3 Mass Effect 2
When Mass Effect 2 was announced for the PS3, I was all like, “BUT THEY WON’T GET THE FULL EXPERIENCE WAAAAAAAHHHHH.” I really felt for my PS3-only brethren, because of a mind that you only get the full experience once you’ve played ME1 and ME2 each six times. Unfortunately, though, PS3 Mass Effectors will never have that full experience, because Mass Effect Original is not going to the PS3.
But BioWare is going to do what they can to give you something between two-thirds of the experience (which is ME2 and ME3, which I have to assume will also be out on PS3) and the full experience. In order to do that, BioWare is producing an “interactive backstory” by Dark Horse Comics that will take you through the story of the first game and let you make decisions on how it plays out. While I kinda imagined they would have a menu or something that would tell you what happened and make a few decisions, I suppose I should have assumed they would make something worthwhile. I’m saying this sounds worthwhile.
Oh, and this backstory thing will come on the Cerberus Network on PS3 only.
You also get other things with your ME2 BD. You get a code for the Cerberus Network (of course), and all three non-Cerberus Network DLC packs (Kasumi, Overlord, Shadow Broker) come on the disc. So there you go. There’s your 70% of the full Mass Effect experience.
