This is a very interesting new bit coming from BioWare, developer on the sequel to Mass Effect, appropiately titled Mass Effect 2. The rumors have been swirling for months now on the possibility of the title coming to PlayStation 3. We’ve received both answers from BioWare and EA, but none like this.

Starting today was the Poznan Game Arena, a game event that spans from October 16th to 17th. BioWare was on the scene, for their two new titles Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2. During the event, Polish website Polygamia reported that during the BioWare conference, Jay Vatamanyuk (writer of Mass Effect 2) said something very revealing.

Mass Effect 2 was talked on for three platforms. Xbox 360, PC, and “probably” PS3. Of course, shortly later, the comment was retracted, and Vatamanyuk said that he would “not comment on rumour and speculation.”

UPDATE:

It appears this was a slip of the tongue.  The comments have been updated…

Watamaniuk clarified his comments saying it was all “a misunderstanding.”

“There is a report circulating today based on an appearance I made in Poland yesterday. Seems there was a misunderstanding about ME2 coming to PS3.” he wrote.

“Let me clarify today: ME2 is coming to PC and X360 only.”
