PlayStation 3 Mass Effect 2 release date

Suicide mission begins (restarts) next month.

PlayStation 3 owners will finally be able to play Mass Effect 2 next month.

The science-fiction role-playing shooter is due out on 21st January in Europe and 18th January in the US, IGN reports.

The PS3 version features a raft of bonus content, including an interactive comic designed to help bridge the storylines of Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2. Choices made while interacting with the comic carry over into your Mass Effect 2 adventure.

Also included is all the previously released downloadable content: Lair of the Shadow Broker, Project Overlord, Kasumi: Stolen Memory and the Blood Dragon Armour.

The Zaeed and Firewalker content is also accessible through the Cerberus Network.

Last month creator BioWare excited PS3 owners when it assured them that Mass Effect 2 on Sony's console will be "as good, if not better than the Xbox version".

"Oftentimes when you go to the PS3 you see stuff like down-ressing and using a smaller than 720p resolution to try and get back some of the framerate," producer Jess Huston told the Official PlayStation Magazine (according to a post on said.

"We haven't done that. We really wanted to try to make it as good, if not better than the Xbox version."
