lair of the shadow broker is the only dlc that a vast majority of new players can't thoroughly enjoy/understand if they've only had a ps3 and never played the first ME. don't get me wrong though, it is still ME2's best dlc to date.

other than that, I'm really curious to see how the new "introductory experience" will play out, considering that the 360s ME2 new player intro was very lackluster, basically a back of the book story, and multiple yes or no type questions.

probably picking it up even tho i finished both me games on that crappy machine.

Is the DLC really worth it?

imo only lair of the shadow broker is worth the download, everything is basically a filler to stretch the game as much as possible. and maybe the kasumi download, only bonus is you get an extra party member

after playing the demo on the ps3.

there is no difference, what ever difference there is in terms of graphics are so minute that it doesnt even matter.

i've seen the comparison vid by ign, the 360 versions been washed and toned down. they botched the 360s version to make/promote the fact they're using mass effect 3s engine.

i did simultaneous comparisons on my tv both through hdmi and really, the only thing you notice, when you try to find it, on the ps3 is that the lighting is different, and because of that fact alone, you REALLY REALLY have to look for those differences.

if you want the tech talk here:


and heres a more accurate and in depth comparison:

then again, it is still the demo.

if its tl;dr for you

the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 is different as opposed to definitive, and while nobody is likely to be disappointed with the game, a direct comparison with the Xbox 360 version suggests that while some elements are improved, others have been downgraded and the effectiveness of some of the aesthetic changes will all come down to personal taste.

The X vs P discussion is really subjective folks, please make sure you keep that in mind. Like I've said before, the goal was not to make the best version or be better than the 360, it was to make it 'as good' so that players on both platforms will be able to talk to each other about the exact same game experience as much as possible. That goal is substantially harder than you might think, certain things on the PS3 (rendering and audio for example) do not act at all the same. (PS3 doesn't get DirectX)

Bioware isnt making ME2 on the ps3 better, they're just trying to prevent a bayonetta port incident.

god, imagine if it ended up like bayonetta, bad look on biowares part, so thats mainly the reason for the engine update.

but engine update comparisons are really dumb if you think about it. its still the same game, but all in one disk, Bluray FTmfW

yes sir

ME2 was 2 dvds for the 360, so i'ma guess at least 15gb download?

fuck that, in australia...
