BioWare charges $10 premium to play Mass Effect 2 on PS3
News just broke today how BioWare will solve the problem of ‘importing’ the experience of Mass Effect for those who want to play Mass Effect 2 on the Playstation 3.
I wrote about the news here (shameless plug)–and I think the solution is a rather elegant one, considering the impossibility of bringing the full Mass Effect game over, but here’s the takeaway:
Good in the long run for people who only own a PS3, or who can’t download DLC because of various circumstances, and certainly great for the commercial success of Mass Effect 3 but I think effectively charging $10 for a digital comic seems kind of steep. At the same time, while I liked Mass Effect 2, I’m certainly not as big a fan as Patricia–so maybe she’ll chime in here.
