We've already voted on our game of the year, and we picked Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
It appears that the Academy Of Interactive Arts And Sciences agrees with our opinion, having nominated the Naughty Dog developed PS3 exclusive for a whopping 12 awards. The final awards will be dished out at the annual DICE summit in Las Vegas on February 9th. Uncharted 3 will be in strong company, with Portal..
Legendary Pictures has chimed in to reveal that the long-rumored Mass Effect movie is in production
Writer Mark Protosevich (of I Am Legend fame, if anyone's hoping for a Will Smith Shepherd) and creator series Casey Hudson will take to the tables at San Diego Comic-Con on July 22nd to discuss the upcoming Mass Effect flick. When's it coming? No word. No other major players in the film production..
The issues Sony's been having with its PlayStation Network service are well documented across the web
I'm told the folks at this very publication have been frantically clamouring for more information on the situation, but Sony's remaining tight-lipped. Honestly, it's probably for the best. No matter how big or small the problem is, Sony will want to...
EA's finally confirmed a March 29th release date for the next instalment of Mass Effect 2 DLC, "Arrival"
The DLC sends protagonist Shepard to the "border of the galaxy" in order to rescue a female undercover agent that might have evidence regarding the impending Reaper invasion. If none of this makes sense to you, we're assuming you didn't play Mass Effect 2. Either that, or you did play..
Mass Effect 2 took the top-prize at last night's gaming BAFTAs, scooping the gong for game of the year
Sony and Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain wasn't far behind though, winning three awards for its story, technical innovation and original music. Elsewhere on PlayStation, God Of War III took the prize for artistic achievement while Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was crowned best action game. The full set..
Remember the Mass Effect 2 DLC Bioware accidentally leaked? Well, hey-ho, here's your first glimpse of it
This mysterious new screenshot popped up on Bioware's Facebook page, craftily hinting at its relation to the rumoured "Arrival" DLC. Bioware's promising more screens if enough people hit the "Share" button. Social network marketing. Fabulous.
Itching for more hands-on time with Commander Shepard? Sure, us too
Well it looks like we're in luck. In addition to patching the recent PlayStation 3 version of the space RPG, Bioware's extended the game's trophy roster by three with new achievements for a DLC pack entitled "Arrival". Some theorists on Bioware's forums believe the new DLC...
We only just finished Mass Effect 2 due to the game's timed exclusivity period on XBOX 360, but we got to the end just in time to see what all the fuss is about
Bioware's space-RPG was the big winner at last night's Annual Interactive Achievement Awards (part of DICE), scooping gongs for RPG of the year, outstanding achievement in story and, game of the year. While Mass Effect 2 took the coveted..
The 10-game shortlist for the BAFTA Video Game Awards has been revealed this morning
The publicly voted category is now open, with gamers being encouraged to register their votes through here. Among the nominees are Heavy Rain, Red Dead Redemption and Mass Effect 2. Hit the jump for the full break-down. Being a public ballot your vote actually matters, otherwise Call Of Duty's just going to walk..
PlayStation 3 players of Mass Effect 2 have been reporting a strange glitch which leads to the loss of game progress
Naturally, this is pretty bad as Mass Effect 2 is a sprawling 30-hour RPG epic. Bioware says it's aware of the problem and hopes to have a patch submitted to Sony as soon as possible. Until then, the developer reckons restarting the game every few hours should help you to avoid the..
Mass Effect 2 is now available from the PlayStation Store for a whopping Â£47.99 / Â€59.99. Don't shoot the messengers. Don't even shoot Sony or EA. Unfortunately this is the stage we're at with digital distribution. Publishers can't undercut retailers because they still play such a huge part in the success of a product. Until we all...
Let's all pause for a quick cheer: hoo-ray
Chart-Track's just revealed that LittleBigPlanet 2's rightfully topped the British software sales charts, knocking Call Of Duty: Black Ops from its perch. Big congratulations to the guys over at Media Molecule. It's a stunning game and it deserves every success. LittleBigPlanet 2 was only one half of a big week for PlayStation 3 though. Bioware's..

While Mass Effect 2 looks and performs better on the PlayStation 3 than most late Unreal Engine ports (kudos for doing a good job Bioware), a few people were left deflated by the game's demo after Bioware's proclamations of the game running on Mass Effect 3's engine
Worry not though, Bioware's Chris Priestly has revealed â€” as we speculated at the time â€” that the demo was running on old build of..
One of 2010's most critically acclaimed games finally releases on the PlayStation 3 (and PlayStation Network) next week
Mass Effect 2's launch trailer is embedded above, complete with moody orchestral score and plenty of intriguing gameplay and character footage. Who's going to pick it up next week then?
We wondered what that "Mass Effect 2: Coming To The PlayStation Network In Six Days" lark was when we opened up the American PlayStation Store this afternoon
Seems like our curiosity has been answered over on the PlayStation Blog: Bioware's confirmed that the PlayStation 3 release of Mass Effect 2 will launch simultaneously on both Blu-ray and the...
EA's announced on Mass Effect 2's official Twitter page that the original game's pre-order bonuses will be made available for free on the PlayStation Network through until February 23rd

It's a move that we never anticipated, but makes piles and piles of sense
Bioware's bringing Mass Effect 3 to the PlayStation 3 day-and-date with its XBOX 360 counterpart, but the franchise's previous title, Mass Effect 2, is finally coming to the PS3 in January. Makes sense that the port would run under Mass Effect 3's updated graphics engine, right? It sure seems obvious, but we never expected..
Mass Effect 2, you might have heard of it
It's one of the most acclaimed games of 2010 by XBOX 360 and PC gamers alike, and it's finally launching on PlayStation 3 in January of next year. But if you want to know more about the action RPG, then fear not --Â a demo for the PlayStation 3 version of the game is set to launch on the PlayStation Store...
We're just about a month or so away from playing Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation 3, but the long awaited release of Bioware's acclaimed RPG sequel only marks the start of a bumper year for the franchise on PS3
EA executive Patrick Buechner has confirmed on Twitter that Mass Effect 3 will also launch on PlayStation 3. It was already assumed that Mass Effect 3 â€” which received its first trailer at the..
One of the highest rated XBOX 360 and PC titles of this generation is finally set to launch on the PlayStation 3 in January. Chatting to IGN, EA's pegged a January 18th/21st launch date for Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation 3 in North America and Europe respectively. The PS3 version of the critically acclaimed game will ship with a bunch of extra content. Who's picking this one up, then?
There was some confusion this weekend as to whether the PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2 would be getting bonus content or not
The game's boxart has wrapped up the rumours though. Yes the game will come with six hours of bonus content, in the form of pre-packaged DLC packs: Kasumi's Stolen Memory, Overlord and Lair Of The Shadow Broker. An interactive comic will also be included to bridge the..
The original Mass Effect is not coming to the PlayStation 3, but the franchise is
The celebrations start with Mass Effect 2 which is due to release on the PlayStation 3 in little over three months. XBOX 360 and PC players have been going gaga over the space RPG for the past 11 or so months, so we're literally aching to get our hands on the game. With the original game not making the jump to PS3..
Worried that Bioware are going to do a half-heartedjob porting Mass Effect 2 to the PlayStation 3? Don't be silly
We don't know where all this concern has come from. "The story won't make sense." Yeah, as if BioWare, the studio who created one of this year's best narrative experiences, are going to do a sloppy job bridging the plot. "It'll be a rubbish port." Again - BioWare. It..
After the initial excitement of Mass Effect 2 for the PlayStation 3 died down yesterday, many people were curious how they would bridge the story elements of the first game for those who didn't play it
The original game was funded and published by Microsoft, so there was no way they'd let up exclusivity rights for the title. It's also a vastly inferior game when compared with the improvements made..
EA's just confirmed at their GamesCom press conference that hit XBOX 360 and PC RPG Mass Effect 2 will be making the jump to the PlayStation 3
The game will launch in January, 2011. How EA are going to bridge the gap between the first Mass Effect game (which was published by Microsoft) and its sequel is unknown, but we're assuming some kind of movie will be included on the blu-ray to fill players..
There's a great stonking rumour over on NeoGAF tonight
According to user "De-Mon", Sony and EA are on the verge of announcing some kind of Mass Effect port entitled Mass Effect: Genesis. "De-Mon" anticipates that the title will be announced during either of the companies' GamesCom conferences tomorrow, but suggests a magazine reveal over the next three weeks is also possible..
Bioware's put a countdown on their website
It counts down to sometime on Monday. Why are we telling you about this? Well, because we kinda hope Bioware are finally going to man up and release the first two Mass Effect games for PS3. It seems ludicrous not to, right? Meh... Feel free to flame us if this turns out to be something totally bollocks.
Apparently Bioshock is still a big deal, as Bioshock 2 has shot straight to the top of the UK charts, removing previous leader Mass Effect 2
Interestingly, after a slew of price-cuts (and perhaps that Playstation 3 patch), Bayonetta has re-entered the charts in number 10 (up from 36). Elsewhere, Fifa 10 and Modern Warfare 2 are still strong propositions. Check out the full list after the jump..
This week news broke that there is redundant PS3 code in the PC version of Mass Effect 2
Naturally this brought up a whole host of rumours that Bioware had a PS3 version of the game running somewhere, and it was only a matter of time before one of the year's highest rated games hit Sony's machine. Bioware were quick to dispell the myths, reiterating the game as "PC and XBOX 360 only."..
If you ever wanted to clutch at straws regarding the release of an "exclusive" game, then now is the time
A cracked piece of Mass Effect 2 source code seems to retain two-lines of code retaining to the apparent existence of a Playstation 3 version of the game. Source code from the PC version of the game,..
As a Playstation fan, it's been pretty gut-wrenching to see those exceptional Mass Effect 2 scores roll in
Not because we want the PC/XBOX 360 title to fail; but because we know we're not going to be able to play it on PS3. Yet. Still, with EA owning all publishing rights for the Mass Effect IP, we can always pray that a port of both the original game and its sequel will arrive on Sony's black..
The ongoing sub-drama of Mass Effect 2's potential appearance on the Playstation 3 goes on
Everytime the question's raised, a less than convincing answer is given. This time it'sÂ Bioware's Greg Zeschuck who is pressed on the possibility of a Playstation 3 port on GTTV. His response? "We're not saying anything." That Playstation 3 port continues to look more and more likely, but we guess..
More Mass Effect 2 rumours breaking
Treat as rumour for now folks, but surely we're all developing our own opinion on this long running story by now? Speaking in Poland this week, Bioware's Jay Watamaniuk mentioned the Playstation 3 as a demographic for their product. Polygamia reports:During the presentation, Watamaniuk mentioned three platforms that Mass Effect 2 is targeted at. They were Xbox..
EA have been very hesitant about Mass Effect in the past
If you want our opinion (heck, that's why you're reading), we'd say the franchise is coming to the Playstation 3 at some point. Whether that means timed XBOX 360/PC exclusivity, a port of the original game or day and date PS3 release of Mass Effect 2, we certainly think it's coming. Yet despite EA Russia (and GAME Australia) listing the game..
In a short but sweet interview with Joystiq, Bioware's Matt Atwood has hinted that a Playstation 3 version of Mass Effect 2 may be possible in the future
When pressed by Joystiq as to who owns the Mass Effect IP he responded, "EA owns the rights to Mass Effect". Further pressing confirmed that there is currently no exclusivity contract between EA and Microsoft regarding the Mass Effect..
Sequels are on the way for Mass Effect and Battlefield: Bad Company
And they'll be on PS3. As confirmed by EA's CEO John Riccitello over on Playstation.Joystiq. Mass Effect was previously a huge XBOX 360 exclusive so this is particularly big news for PS3-only owners. That's all we have to report at the moment.
