It's to be expected of EA, with how greedy they are. Oh well, I wonder if this delays Mass Effect 3 :/
That would be my only concern.

Another thing worth noting, is that Microsoft published the first Mass Effect only on the 360, not the PC version, that was EA.

PS3 will not be getting the import save file feature so it makes it by far inferior. 360 is still the version to play. Plus releasing a year after the 360 version, no one will care about it, happened with GTA IV DLC as well.

I would assume so.

Why is that so terrible?

But we're not getting "Mass Effect 1"? I'll pass. It's cool we're getting the game but I don't think many PS3 gamers are going to pick this up. For those single console owners, many will feel they missed out on the first game so why play the second. To those dual console owners, they already own ME2 for their 360's and they can import their save files from the first game for use in the second. This ability to import makes the 360 version superior to it's PS3 counterpart and most dual console owners that haven't already purchased ME2 will do so on 360 for this reason.

I think it would've been a better idea to just hold off for "Mass Effect 3" to launch on 360, then day-&-date with it's release ship out all three games on 1 PS3 blu-ray, "The Mass Effect Trilogy".

Yea that's what I thought. Most of the PS3 gamers that really, really wanted to play Mass Effect probably bought an 199 dollar arcade Xbox or upgraded their PC to minimum specs (actually, most of the new PCs now-a-days can probably play Mass Effect without upgrades). The established fanbase of Mass Effect fans are purely X360/PC owners, and that won't change considering people want to play the Mass Effect trilogy with their own saved progress.

However for the 6 or 7 people that wanted to play Mass Effect 2 but for some unknown reason couldn't get access to it, this is good news. (the number is an exageration, don't take it seriously lol.)

Problem fixed. EA is doing something for the ps3 owners that missed ME1. No default choices in ME2 so that is good. playstation tweeted about it.

The annoying thing about all this is that ME2 PS3 may delay ME3 because they have to port a game which was built primarily on the XBOX 360 and now one can assume that ME3 will be a simultaneous PS3/360 launch so they need extra time to do a PS3 version of ME3.
Greedy EA making their true Mass Effect fans (360/PC) wait for a version that won't even make them that much money.

Well all they care about is money, and they will do anything for it.

Indeed which is interesting that a lot of top quality developers are partnering with greedy publishers (EA and Bioware, Activision and Bungie)
