BioWare Kills Mass Effect 2 PS3 Rumor

BioWare has shot down rumors that a PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2 is on the way, saying that the PS3 code found in the PC version of the game is nothing more than a remnant of the cross-platform Unreal Engine.

Polish gaming site Kikoo reported yesterday that it had found a mysterious bit of code floating around in the PC version of Mass Effect 2, the new space-based RPG from BioWare. It looked like this:

m_srSpendTalentPointsMessageXBox?=348754
m_srParagonRenegadeMessageXBox=3?48755
m_srSpendTalentPointsMessagePC=3?48753
m_srParagonRenegadeMessagePC=348?755
m_srSpendTalentPointsMessagePS3=?348755
m_srParagonRenegadeMessagePS3=15?3007

Neither Mass Effect game has appeared on the PlayStation 3, but BioWare has consistently refused to deny that it won't someday bring the franchise to Sony's platform. Could this be the reason? Did Kikoo uncover BioWare's greatest secret: Mass Effect 2 on the PS3?

Well, no. In a short-and-sweet forum post, BioWare Community Coordinator Chris Priestly wrote, "The Unreal Engine is cross platform, hence the PS3 code. This was brought up back in Mass Effect 1 days as well. Mass Effect is for the PC and Xbox 360."

Sorry, PS3 crew, but it looks like you're going to have to wait awhile longer.
