The PlayStation 3 version of Dragon Age: Origins has suffered through a hazy existence over the past month or so. We heard it wouldn't be releasing alongside the Xbox 360 and PC versions, which is always cause for concern, and we still don't have a concrete launch date.
So what's up? Well, maybe it's not bad news we're awaiting, but surprisingly good news. As noted by Kotaku , it seems the Bioware team has some "exciting news" regarding the PS3 version; it's essentially an announcement for an announcement but that's okay. If it's "exciting," it can't possibly be bad , right? Perhaps they'll tell us that in fact there is no delay for the PS3 version, and that it will be available on launch day next month with its 360 and PC counterparts. Or maybe they'll give us a later release date, but PS3 owners can expect some extra bonus content, kind of as an apology for the delay. Who knows? Personally, I've been skeptical from the start because Bioware isn't a company that has a lot of experience with the PlayStation platform, and in all honesty, I wasn't surprised when I heard the PS3 version had been delayed. That's almost like saying a PS3 game by Valve (if they ever make one) got delayed. It just wouldn't be shocking; Bioware has always been more of a PC/Xbox developer, which may have caused problems when making Dragon Age for the PS3.
But this news is encouraging. This announcement should be great for PS3 owners, especially if they're RPG fans. You can only play Demon's Souls for so long, I assume…
