Mass Effect 2 PS3 to hit retail and PSN simultaneously
posted on 01.12.11 at 01:37 PM EDT by (@salromano)

Come January 18th, Mass Effect 2 is making the move to PlayStation 3 exclusively at retailers. Or so we thought.

As it turns out, Mass Effect 2 is also coming to PlayStation Network, like a few other high-profile PlayStation 3 games have already done (inFAMOUS, etc.). Not only is it coming to the PlayStation Store — it’s coming to the PlayStation Store on January 18th, the same day it launches in retailers.

We haven’t seen many simultaneous retail/downloadable launches this generation, so whenever a publisher like Electronic Arts decides to do one, it’s best we applaud. Some people like to download games. Others like to own physical copies. This way pleases us all.
