Tweet from Sony Russia outs Mass Effect 3

The people who gave us Tetris and vodka may have accidentally given us verification of the existence of Mass Effect 3 as well. A Twitter message from Sony's Russian team confirming the game's existence on the PS3 has been pulled, but not quickly enough to prevent it from being seen.

The Twitter post has been translated to say, "Company #BioWare Award for #VideoGameAwards showed a teaser, in which we can see the first footage #MassEffect 3."

The Twitter account, PlayStationRU, appears to be an official Sony-sanctioned account (but it's always hard to know for sure), and despite the poor translation, the tweet clearly suggests that Mass Effect 3 will be officially announced and debuted at a video game awards ceremony. The #VideoGameAwards hashtag refers to Spike's Video Game Awards on December 11, so perhaps this tweet was meant to be posted after that.

BioWare has already teased that it plans to debut a new game at the VGAs, but has been tight-lipped about any further details. We don't currently expect the game to be Mass Effect 3, though rumors of a Mass Effect spin-offs have been floating around. Legit or not, this tweet adds yet another layer of mystery to the upcoming announcement.

    @CH3BURASHKA You're wrong, my friend. And if you didn't know, you wear Russian cartoon character name & avatar. Sorry for double post.
  • The4X - November 24, 2010 12:16 p.m.

    The Russian text must be translated in a following way: #Bioware company showed teaser of first frames (moments) of #Mass Effect 3 for #VideoGameAwards Prize [Award] (sorry 4 bad English)

    could you say that Sony would have preferred if there was No Russian! (bad pun I'm sorry)
  • batmanboy11 - November 23, 2010 1:44 a.m.

    Well we already know it exsists. I hope its made official at the VGAs though.

    "The people who gave us Tetris and vodka..." love it, really brings Russia's importance home. oh and, @sleepy92 You're going to have to pay Microsoft tens of millions of dollars, because they own publishing rights to ME1 and you can be sure they aren't going to be okay with it coming out on PS3.
  • CH3BURASHKA - November 22, 2010 11:20 p.m.

    Sweet! Now all I have to do is play Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2! I'm always suspicious of Russian people. I always assume they do whatever the hell they want, and to hell with the consequences - I wouldn't be surprised if this was intentional, as opposed to a misunderstanding.
  • sleepy92ismypsn - November 22, 2010 11:19 p.m.

    Damnit, I went to submit this on N4G thinking it would be a hot story and it turns out someone already submitted the story...3 DAYS AGO! Theres 570 degrees I'll never see. This is good news I guess but I'm still waiting for ME1 to come to PS3. I'm not buying ME2 until I can play the first one.
  • JADENkOTOR - November 22, 2010 11:04 p.m.

    Of course its Mass Effect 3... BioWare is working on Dragon Age 2, The Old Republic, and Mass Effect 3... There is no way they are announcing a new series or a ME prequel of any kind. Its just too much.
  • Chevapravatdumrong - November 22, 2010 11:03 p.m.

    Wait a minute they're making a Mass Effect 3 and it's coming to the PS3!?!?!?!?!...! Why do companies keep asking like the Spike VGA's are legit, can they agree to ignore it like we do.
  • SwaggerPancakes - November 22, 2010 10:59 p.m.

    Well I never would've known if not for the Tweet.
  • KuwaSanjuro - November 22, 2010 10:56 p.m.

    Love you Tyler Wilde. Haha
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - November 22, 2010 10:54 p.m.

    @lovinmyps3 Well, the fact that the tweet came from Sony should give you an indication...
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - November 22, 2010 10:53 p.m.

    @EliteM0nk3y Your face is late to the party. The face party. Where all the faces are hanging out, without you, because your face is late.
  • lovinmyps3 - November 22, 2010 10:53 p.m.

    I know Mass Effect 3 is coming, I just want to know when! I hope PS3 owners get it though. It'd be messed up if 2 was the only one in the series that they got. Haha.
  • EliteM0nk3y - November 22, 2010 10:49 p.m.

    Kind of late to party here Gamesradar, this has been known about for most of the day, at least here in EST. Anyways, I hope it is not Mass Effect 3. I would rather wait for 2-3 years again, especially if they are going to release on 3 platforms at once. Also we know ME 3 exists because Bioware has stated that is a 3 part trilogy

    I'm still waiting for Two on the ps3 :D
