Mass Effect 2 Will Be Available on the PSN & Blu-Ray on 1/18 | PS3Blog.net
Mass Effect 2 will be released next week alongside LittleBigPlanet 2. Personally, I enjoyed the first one (a 360 exclusive) quite a bit. Too bad my PS3 is still out of order, and thus, I will still have to wait to pick this up. Anyway, what’s cool about it is the game will be coming to the PlayStation Store as well. As usual, PlayStation Plus subscribers get to do the 1 hour trial as well.
The downside to quite a few people is the $60 price tag associated with the game, though. Personally, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal, considering we get the best version of the game with the updated Mass Effect 3 engine (and the differences were definitely noticeable) and all the DLC.
Anyway, one of the big questions was how much space the game will take up. According to the Examiner, upon inquiring Sony, Grace Chen responded saying the download clocks in at “around 12GB”, so if you’re planning on downloading it, as opposed to getting the Blu-Ray disc, keep in mind the amount of space needed.
