Evidence Pointing Towards A PS3 Mass Effect

February 2, 2010Written by Zak Islam

After Bioware’s thriller triumphed sales charts recently, some new evidence has been discovered which points towards a PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2.

A Polish site named Kikoo has claimed there is a small source code proportion contained in the PC version of Mass Effect 2 which suggest that a PS3 connection to Bioware’s adventure title is valid.

The source code reads:

[SFXGame.BioSFHandler_CharacterR? Ecord2]

m_nMaxRenegade=1900 m_nMaxRenegade = 1900

m_nMaxParagon=1957 m_nMaxParagon = 1957

m_srXPFormat=340881 m_srXPFormat = 340,881


m_srSpendTalentPointsMessageXBox? = 348,754


m_srParagonRenegadeMessageXBox = 3? 48,755


m_srSpendTalentPointsMessagePC = 3? 48,753


m_srParagonRenegadeMessagePC = 348? 755


m_srSpendTalentPointsMessagePS3 =? 348,755


m_srParagonRenegadeMessagePS3 = 15? 3007

The last two lines suggests there is a PS3 connection to Mass Effect. CVG contacted EA to ask if the firm were keen on a PlayStation 3 version of the game, a short “No comment on that one” was the reply.
