Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter
is all but certain the Mass Effect
trilogy is going multiplatform. In the latest episode of GameTrailers' Bonus Round
(start about three-fourths of the way into the video), Pachter notes that, given the financial expectations Electronic Arts has with its recently-acquired developer
, Mass Effect 2
"has to, has to
" come to the PlayStation 3 in addition to the Xbox 360.
More interesting is what Pachter says after his ME2
assertion. "I wouldn't be shocked if Mass Effect One
came to the PS3," he said. We aren't sure the exact details of EA's acquisition, but we do know the original Mass Effect
was published by Microsoft Games Studio, leading us to assume it was a safely exclusive title. Could EA port and publish the game on Sony's console? We doubt Microsoft would be willing to let that platinum-selling title
go without a fight.
