If Dragon Age: Origins is coming to PS3..

Does that mean Mass Effect and the rest of the trilogy has a chance of being on PS3?

I have all consoles so don't say "ZOMG BUY A 360 IF YOU WANNA PLAY IT!" (I know I can get it on PC but I would have to build a PC from scratch and it would probably cost more than im willing to pay) because now it doesn't seem like such a crazy idea because BioWare had never released a game on a Sony console and now they are.

Yeah, I didn't mean the first one. Probably worded it wrong.

I meant ME2 and ME3. Don't say "Zomg why would they do that? it makes no sense to release the rest of the games without the previous installment(s)" because Devil May Cry 4 is on 360, RE5 is going to be on 360, Saints Row 2 is on PS3 even though the first one was not.

The entire triology is being MS published. Maybe once they are done with this story arc, they might. But i highly doubt it. And wtf is with SR2 on PS3 but not SR1? I love SR2 and 1btw.

Bioware signed a deal with Microsoft for 3 exclusive games. You won't see Mass Effect on another platform any time soon other than PC. Too bad though because Mass Effect is a great game, last game i played on my xbox before it blew up and i switched to PS3.

in this generation you can not count on Exclusive titles ,  eventually they all will be multi platform  :D

Depends on the contract they signed. If its a one year exclusivity deal, yeah, but if microsoft got the money down to keep it on xbox and pc, it'll stay that way.

You do realise that just because MS took up publishing rights for their console, doesn't mean that another publisher couldn't do the job for another console eh?

There's been rumors that because bioware was bought up by EA and EA is all about sharing the love - then ME may become multiplatform.

I think it will be a PC only affair for quite a while, I cannot see it coming to the PS3 in any hurry, I reckon it would be a very tricky game to bring over to 360, let alone PS3. Build a PC I say, it would be the cherry on top for your gaming. I cannot wait for the game, I loved Baldurs and this is the spiritual return :P

I believe I read that EA purchased the publishing rights to Mass Effect shortly after they secured Bioware. Thus the lack of Microsoft branding on the PC version on the game. So yeah, I'd say that a PS3 version of the next game in the series is not just likely, but inevitable.

it end up coming since bioware is now in bed with EA
