Some rumors just refuse to go away. For those PS3 owners who have been dying to play Mass Effect 2 but never have been able to, there may be some hope for you yet.
Rumors of Mass Effect coming to the PlayStation 3 have been given a fresh dose of fuel thanks to some new source code dug out of the PC version of Mass Effect 2. According to Polish site Kikoo, the code suggests that a PS3 version of the game exists somewhere, perhaps locked away in a golden vault in the polar region.
Electronic Arts has offered a staunch “no comment” on the situation, neither confirming nor denying the code and what it might mean. For what it’s worth, here is the code itself:
If you’ll remember back to when Bioshock was originally released as an Xbox 360 exclusive, someone did this same kind of research and found lines of PS3 code as well. As everyone knows how that story played out, maybe the same will happen and PS3 only owners will be able to play a sure candidate for 2010 Game of the Year. This is all just rumor and speculation at this point but very interesting to say the least.
So PS3 owners, does this excite you or could you care less? As a multi-console owner myself it doesn’t affect me one way or another but i think it would be great for more people to experience a game of this magnitude.
