GameTrailers' Bonus Round segment has become a rather popular online series of interviews where Geoff Keighley speaks to various figures in the world of videogaming. This past episode he had analyst Michael Pachter, Newsweek's N'Gai Croal, and GameTrailers' very own Shane Satterfield.
During a discussion about the status of Microsoft's closest developers aborting ship left and right (Bungie, Bizarre, BioWare), the trio agreed that there is clearly a reason why these companies would rather create distance, or be bought out, than work exclusively for the Xbox 360.
Interestingly enough, Michael Pachter brought up an interesting point when he stated that EA didn't drop $300M on BioWare and Pandemic only to let them keep working on Xbox 360 titles. No, Pachter claims that EA very likely intends on bringing Mass Effect onto the PlayStation 3, with either a sequel, the original, or both.
N'Gai Croal then points out Epic, who is very familiar with the PlayStation 3 architecture, and goes on to state "we pretty much know that Gears of War 3 is probably gonna' come out on PS3." Yes, GOW3, and not the sequel; Microsoft holds Epic to a two-game deal, so the first two will likely remain exclusive, but Gears of War is the intellectual property of Epic Games.
So with that said, we can only hope that both predictions are spot-on, as it'd certainly stir up some emotions, on top of giving PlayStation 3 owners two fantastic franchises to experience.
