Mass Effect 2 for PS3 gets more free DLC

Good things come to those who wait. BioWare has recently announced additional free DLC goodies for purchasers of the PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2. The announcement comes from the official Mass Effect 2 Facebook page, which says:

Until February 23rd, 2011, Mass Effect 2 players on Playstation 3 can download the Terminus Armor and M-490 Blackstorm Projector Weapon free of charge from the PSN Store. After Feb 23rd, the Terminus Gear will be available as paid DLC. Order your copy of ME2 on PS3 today!

Above: A pretty nice screen shot of Commander Shepard, but note that he is not equipped with the Terminus Armor or M-490 Blackstorm Projector

In addition to the extra armor and weapon, the PlayStation 3 version will include the Lair of the Shadow Broker, Project Overlord, and Kasumi: Stolen Memory DLC add-ons. It will also come with Mass Effect Genesis, an interactive comic from Dark Horse.

The PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2 is scheduled to release on January 18 in North America and on January 21 in Europe.

    @Fusionmix your bitter words make me smile XD

    @ queefitswhatsfordinner They have said that there will be one more major dlc release before mass effect 3.

    The horrible new lighting engine in the PS3 version keeps me from being jealous.

    I was waiting for this on PS3 but i got hold of both games on PC cheap and they have been great. PS3 users with no PC access are in for a treat.

    @kcypher2000 I have a ps3, 360 and pc (that is able to run anything at max) You are correct there is no reason to buy it on ps3 after owning it on pc...its just so much better on pc than any console could ever be.
  • kcypher2000 - January 6, 2011 5:58 a.m.

    Why are people so easily manipulated to believe this is actually free? It will cost you 59.99 for a game that has been out for a year, and is now 9.99 on xbox. Add up all the dlc, add in the price of the first game and then maybe you are even. Btw stop lying people that you are going to rebuy it for ps3 and you own it on pc. No one believes you because their is no reason to do it.

    Will there be any more story affecting DLC? For ME2

    @EarlofWindsor The armor and weapon were available to PC/360 players who bought the Collector edition, so it's not as if we didn't already have a chance. And one set of armor and a weapon don't make up for the fact that we actually get to experience the first game and have EVERY decision carry over.

    I got those items for preordering the pc version a long time ago at gamestop, they're pretty meh. Blackstorm gun is cool but I always went back to the simple grenade laucher for crowd control, or droping a nuke just to add insult to injury.

    Can't wait!
  • sweetzombiejesus - January 6, 2011 12:03 a.m.

    I already have it on PC and beat it more than 3 times but I'm still going to buy it for the PS3.
  • EarlofWindsor - January 5, 2011 11:58 p.m.

    I understand that you'll always get the more refined, fixed (overall better) version and deal the longer you wait to get a game but, man, I can't help but feel a tiny bit bitter about this. I mean, those who played Mass Effect on the 360 are the ones who made the series a success in the first place, but we get nothing but the satisfaction of having gotten to play it already. Oh well. More people being able to play the game is good for everyone and other positive statements, etc., right? :P

    They'll get Zaeed and Firewalker due to them being free on the Cerberus Network
  • AngryScotsman - January 5, 2011 11:48 p.m.

    So PS3 folk don't get Zaeed? Lucky bastards.
  • williamyarbrough - January 5, 2011 11:46 p.m.

    Sweet. I played both versions on the PC but I am totally going to get this for the PS3.
  • NappyAfro - January 5, 2011 11:39 p.m.

    That's sounds nice. To bad the Terminus armor and Blackstorm Projector are pretty useless. I can see the blackstorm getting used some what, but Terminus armor... not so much at all. Still nice.
