Want To Know Why Mass Effect 2 Looks So Good On The PS3?

Yesterday we posted a first look preview video of Mass Effect 2 on the PS3 and we were quite blown away by the visual improvement. Turns out there’s a very good reason for said improvement.

Apparently Mass Effect 2 on the PS3 is utilises the updated engine Bioware are using for Mass Effect 3, reports Eurogamer.

“We actually created the engine for Mass Effect 3 and used that to make Mass Effect 2 PS3,” claims Jesse Houston on the Bioware podcast. “So we took the content, the story and all of the other assets that made up Mass Effect 2 and we put it into the Mass Effect 3 engine.”

So there you go – another mystery solved.
