The first game was Amazing thou a Glitch Feast til patched properly. So I did not buy the Second one for the PC like I did the first. The PS3 Version of this game, has in it all of the Down-loadable Content the game has made for it. This game like Dragon Age 2 the Ultimate Edition is considered the final of final editions, because it uses the game engine they had designed for Mass Effect 3, this is good news because the engine will make the most of the PS3 for it's graphics which means visually this game will look better then it did on the Xbox360. I also get the feeling that because Microsoft controls the rights to Mass Effect 1 as an inclusive game, that Bio-ware. Makers of Knights of the Old republic, Jade Empire, Dragon Age and a number of other games that have been hugely popular and some of the best game ever made is unhappy that Microsoft would not release the rights of the first version of this game after some time to allow for them to publish said game onto the PS3. So I would say or figure that them adding an interactive comic at the start of the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 is their way to get around that. This comic is published by Dark Horse and is suppose to be about 10 to 15 minutes long where you get to decided how to effect the story in special event moments of the first Mass Effect. Sadly it is very low likely many of the smaller thing you might have done in the first game that could have effected the second game do not make it over. And I am unable to comment on many of these things, however I do know many important events do. I know the Xbox360 version, if you did not have the first game did not allow for you to simply pick the major results and gave you the worse or negative results for the start of the second game. And picked a few other results based on if your Shepard had been male or female. But us with the PS3 version of this game will be allowed to pick the major events of the first game and how it effects the story of the second game for multiple plays of the game without having to spend the time. So in other words if you already played the first one on the PC, and your PC can handle it very well and you want to see the best visual effects of this game a Consoled will give you. The PS3 Version is the cleanest most crisp of the two. To get this kind of chance, without having to buy the first game again for the Xbox 360 is huge! Many of the differences between this one and the other from my experience with the Demo that you can download off the Playstation Network, is that this one is more run and gun then the first one. I also noticed that it had less load time then the PC version had so I would figure that would mean it would have less then the Xbox 360 Version as well. I would also say that because the game is on Blueray chances are load times as a whole will be brief and maybe few, and unlike the Xbox 360 Version you will not need to swap discs mid-way through play. All And all its going to be a fun Ride and as a gamer I am happy to see Bio-ware, changed the game enough between the systems to snub it's nose at Microsoft. I would also like to add that Mass Effect 2, for Ps3 will have been bug fixed and glitch fixed more then even the Xbox360 version and the PC Version. It had been announced that they had worked long and hard to get this game just right using forums and player response from the game to improve this version. It happens to be what Bio-ware called the Gold Version. Which would mean the final version of this game. And because the Game engine Along with the code and the graphics and everything are up dated you will surely see why. The game will play in true 1080p, it is single player. And it will have one of the highest of all replay values and by extension one of the best story that can very by your responses. You can play a good guy Paragon or Renegade, this is kinda like Light Side, Dark Side. It will effect the way the character looks. Much like it did in Knights of the Old Republic or Fable. So enjoy and happy gaming!
