Next week is a big week. Both LittleBigPlanet 2 and Mass Effect 2 for the PlayStation 3 hit store shelves.
And if you didn't already know, BioWare's excellent title will also hit the PlayStation Network. As announced at the PlayStation Blog , ME2 will be downloadable through the PSN if you'd rather not travel down to the store. The price will be the same but of course, you won't get the box for your collection if you download it (if you care). The Blog entry also reminds us once again that ME2 is a heck of a lot more than a port; it features the engine BioWare is currently using for Mass Effect 3 , and it also boasts all the current downloadable content for the game. Role-playing fans will also get Dragon Age II in March and ME3 should drop before the end of the year, so this could be a memorable year for the RPG. Let's also not forget a few JRPGs that could satisfy the fans; both Hyperdimension Neptunia and a couple new Ar Tonelico titles are scheduled, too. We didn't have much in the way of quality role-playing in 2010 but that most certainly isn't the case in 2011.
We know a lot of PS3 owners aren't all that interested in Mass Effect 2 but we urge you to give it a shot. From what we hear, it's too good to flat out dismiss.
