Mass Effect 3 to Launch on all Platforms Simultaneously
Everyone here at GameFront was fired up after seeing the Mass Effect 3 trailer at Saturday night’s VGAs. We’re even more excited this morning, since EA has given us more good news regarding Mass Effect 3.
In a press release giving a scant few details on the game, EA announced one major fact, saying,
Mass Effect 3 is set to launch globally in holiday 2011 on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and the PC — this marks the first time the Mass Effect franchise will launch on all three major platforms simultaneously.
We thought this might be the case now that Mass Effect 2 is definitely coming to PS3. Still, it’s nice to have it confirmed . You have to wonder how many PS3 copies will be sold, since carrying overyour save game is such a huge part of the appeal of the series. Will it only be new players on Sony’s console? We’ll have to wait and see.
