I am sure that you have all heard by now that Mass Effect 2 will be coming to PS3 in January. Well, for the PS3 owners out there, here is the announcement trailer for you to enjoy –
I am not to fussed the game is on PS3, but they will miss out on a lot of stuff from the first game that makes ME2 good. For instance, Wrex as teammate, your connection with original ship, your character an crew, Garrus in ME1, story of Saren, the Geth and Reapers and the Prometheans. All these parts of ME1 impacts ME2 and makes the game better, building on the history and mythology. Just dealing with the Reaper ship, Sovereign, in ME1 shows how powerful the enemy is. I donâ€™t think the truth of which the Collectors will be as impact if you havenâ€™t played the first game. They said there will be a bit added to the start of the game to get players up to speed, it may give you information but that would not create any emotional connection with the ship and crew. When playing the first scene of ME2 (I do not want to give it away) itâ€™s a shame that it will be meaningless and have less emotional impact on the PS3 player.
