Mass Effect 2 will finally come to the PlayStation 3 with a bunch of extra content in January, so it seems almost inevitable that Mass Effect 3 will also be available for the PS3…and hopefully, at the same time as other versions.
BioWare and EA haven't confirmed anything just yet, but ME3 for the PS3 may have been outed by SCEE Russia. According to Ripten citing a recent Tweet, BioWare will provide fans with a teaser trailer of the upcoming third installment at this year's Spike VGA Awards, which takes place on December 11. The rough translation from Russian is as follows:
"“Company BioWare for VideoGameAwards showed a teaser, in which we can see the first footage MassEffect 3."
There's no mention of platforms but as SCEE Russia makes the comment, one would have to make the obvious assumption. This is in addition to BioWare boss Ray Muzyka saying that ME3 on PS3 "makes sense" and of course, the common trend of third-party exclusives going multiplatform this generation. BioWare has already worked on the PS3; they gave us Dragon Age: Origins and the sequel will also be releasing for the PS3, 360 and PC next year as well. Finally, the RPG maker stated several times that they would continue to work with Sony's machine, so ME3 on PS3 really does seem inevitable.
If you don't plan on watching the Awards – and you might not – we'll try to get that teaser up on here.
