    Great news for Ps3 owners! Mass Effect 2 is coming to Ps3!

    Like the title says, this is good news for the Ps3. Might be time for me to buy a Ps3. i just want the exclusives on Ps3 like Killzone, Resistance, Uncharted and Infamous.

    But one question that bugs me is that why bring a sequel to another console yet no first game? Crysis 2 for example is going to consoles aswell but no news on the first game, won't players miss out on the story and what had happened in the first game?

    Well Crysis' story was crap anyway so it's not such a big deal. I'm still playing Mass effect 1 (on pc) so I don't what happens at the end, but they'll probably be able to let people know what happened in it during Mass effect 2. Of course it's not the same as if you'd actually played the first game but yeah it works...

    Even when i had a 360 i didnt pick up a copy of the first 1, Although it admittidly looked quit nice. I think if Developers who were all like this games only coming out on 360 wanna make sequels for the PS3 thats fine. but Blu-Ray has allot of Storage capacity and they could include a port of original game and the sequel on one disc. Sweeten the Deal, yaknowwhaimeen?

    I was actually thinking about that. Why not include both on one disc?

    Now all the PS3 needs is a port of Deadly Premonition and we're set.

    EDIT: Can you even fit both massive games on one disc? >__>

    Maybe something like a bundle pack where you can buy both the first and the second on two seperate discs.

    You probably could fit Mass Effect 1 on the same disc. Mass effect 1 isn't actually that massive, it reuses game assets like a hobo reuses shopping carts.

    Apparently the first game was published by Microsoft so it won't come to Ps3, but since ME 2 was published by EA that is why it is on Ps3.

    They said hours of content will be available for Ps3 owners so i am guessing this will help make the choice's from the first game.

    I thought ME2 was also published by Uncle Gates like the first one.

    Now that the Metal Gear saga is over (quit releasing ty spin-offs Konami!) I might as well go over to the dark side and buy a 360, or wait for the new generation of Xbox to come out. I found Killzone too easy and boring, especially MP, Uncharted 2 was the best exclusive IMHO. PS3 isn't half of what the mighty PS2 was. I hope Sony creates a good PS4 or I'm off the boat. "A bientot fokeurs!".

    Seriously the only thing that I like about the PS3 is free online features, that's it. No one's making proper use of the Cell processor nor the Blu-ray's immense capacity. It's like a 4x4 you buy and never get out of the city. If it wasn't for MGS4(which was the worst game of the franchise IMO) I would be sorry I actually bought a PS3. And this is coming from a long time Sony fanboy fellas. No flaming required.

    How it is worse compared to MGS2? Not that any of them were bad, just wondering what makes you think that MGS4 is the worse in the series.

    Well the story really was pushed in ridiculous extensions to close the gates that were opened back when Metal Gear came out. They tried to explain everything and didn't create anything new that was compelling, compared to a masterpiece like MGS3 (my all time favorite game) gameplay, locations and new characters were pretty generic, boss fights sucked(beauty&beasts... worst MGS bosses ever IMO.) You never had any difficulties in the game so the whole soul of MGS was lost(70 weapons, more than enough ammo to start WW3, etc etc), there was no tension what-so-ever... I could go on for pages but I won't, have done it quite a few times already . The game just felt generic.

    I think MGS2 sucked because Solid Snake played such a small role in it, but the gameplay, tension and atmosphere was waaaay more superior to MGS4. The tanker level alone would be enough to "pwn" the entire MGS4 experience. But that's just my opinion as a MGS freak. Is it a bad game? Certainly not. Played it through about 20 times so far. But is it as good as the rest of the games? Certainly not.

    My list:

    MGS3>MGS1>MGS2>MGS4.

    I have to disagree. I think MGS4 was fantastic. It was perfect way to end the series by closing down every chapter. I think it worked very well. Besides the REX vs. RAY and the last battles made-up for other boss battles (which like you said, they sucked [except for Laughing Octopus]).

    Anyway, it's your opinion. I'd say MGS3>MGS4>MGS1>MGS2. But to me those in series are still so much better than other games lol

    You missed my point dude. I said they failed to create new compelling content while trying to shut the gates close. MGS had a series of controls that were unique, those were tossed out the window and in was the generic american shooting gallery, i really hated that fact as well. MGS2 gets ahead of MGS4 in terms of innovation, presentation and boss battles in my opinion. I agree that they are so much better than other games as well BTW. The fact that I cant play Alan Wake, SC: Conviction, Halo and GeOW1&2&3 on my PS3 really upsets me, cause other than Uncharted 2 & MGS4 there isn't any exclusive title I play for long periods of time on my PS .

    I didn't miss your point. I just disagree with it. To me it was very good way to end the series.

    I don't know, personally I was blown away lol

    As for consoles, well I had both and played them back to back but now my 360 broke again (second time), I'm mostly focused on PS3. I will miss the Gears of War series and at the moment I think the exclusives are about equal. I can't wait for The Last Guardian/Team Ico HD Collection.Overall the idea of HD Classics is going to be great. They should remake MGS3 lol

    If you're thinking about buying a 360, maybe go with the new slim model.

    All I remember about MGS4 was that one cutscene was, like, 2 hours long and the ending kept going ON AND ON AND ON AND ONNNNN

    But that's what you're going to get if you buy an MGS game. I thought the fourth one was pretty good, I was surprised at how many plot points they tied up.

    And I must direct you guys to the funniest Metal Gear Solid comics ever.

    Unfortunately, the writer has chosen to do a Persona 4 comic instead of a Metal Gear Solid 4 comic.

    Metal gear solid always confused me. Maybe it's because the only one I played was mgs4.

    Exclamation

    From Mass Effect 2 to Guns of the Patriot , and moderators shouts at me for going off topic ...

    My complaints about Guns of the Patriot ? ...
    - It was still more 'cutscene' than 'gameplay' , and when theres gameplay , it's rarely satisfying ...
    - The cutscenes dialogues story is fine ... except the fact that it goes like this : for a couple of hours characters will talk talk and talk about the 'current' situation , then sometime later , another character will pop up and basically say "hey you know all that they told you ? well they were just bull , let Me tell you the true story" , then this situation repeats itself up to the end , where whenever you get hours of speeches that puts into your brain that A=16 , someone then say A=47 , then another says it's B=47 ... everytime you've been 'taught' a history , it turns out to be completely False , and a new version comes in , and common ...

    That's all i can remember on the negative side , on the plus side ? ...
    My second game on PS3 after Dead Men (i bought the 80GB PS3 pack , Patriots came in for free , otherwise i don't think i would have Ever bought it) , and it provided a very plesant experience , even though i wasn't as satisfies as i was with Dead Men , i played the Patriots from beginning to end during twenty four hours ...
    I just couldn't let it go ...

    Oh and , yeah ... Where The Hell Is MAH TROPHY PATCH !!! ...

    You don't deserve trophy patch.
    You need to appreciate the awesomeness that Guns of Patriots is.
