The best game of the generation and one of the better i've ever play
curl-6 (on 08 May 2013)
Deserved to sell more; best WRPG of the generation.
DitchPlaya (on 31 March 2012)
Sales have been picking up recently, hopefully the franchise gets the attention it deserves, PS3 port helped a lot with that at least.
yo_john117 (on 21 January 2012)
Really osama?
haxxiy (on 12 January 2012)
@osamanobama I bet people have similar opinions about rhe games you obviously prefer, so why bother?
osamanobama (on 10 January 2012)
over rated game is over rated
sunxi85 (on 24 November 2011)
Hoping it can reach 3m after ME3 release
Jexy (on 04 November 2011)
Keep in mind nilli, that VGChartz never counted PC sales in the Americas, and even if they did, they don't count digital downloads, which most of the PC sales are anyway.
yo_john117 (on 28 October 2011)
I suppose it's because it looks cool...and it's from one of the trailers I believe.
hudsoniscool (on 26 October 2011)
why do they use a pic of shepard that isnt really shepard. they did the same on ME1 cover. it doesnt look like him.
nilli (on 03 October 2011)
Hopefully Bioware cancels mass effect 3 on pc. Just take a look at the sales and keep in mind it got pirated over 3 million times on pc.
nilli (on 03 October 2011)
I got so shitty sales because everybody just pirated it on pc.
yo_john117 (on 24 September 2011)
My favorite game of all time! It deserves much better sales than this though :/
Mr Puggsly (on 17 August 2011)
Nice numbers, should hit 3 million in the long run.
atomix (on 01 August 2011)
It's a shame that ppl bought only 2,5M copies. This game deserves more.
dsage01 (on 24 July 2011)
11 milion!!! WTF! It won't even reach 3 million!
Reebokanonymous (on 20 June 2011)
11 million lifetime.
hudsoniscool (on 14 June 2011)
tracking ahead of ME1 by 460k
hudsoniscool (on 14 June 2011)
i agree dark lord, ME1 is second
yahoocom1984 (on 14 June 2011)
This is not the best RPG, the BEST RPG this generation is Fallout 3, soon it will be SKyrim
Dark_Lord_2008 (on 09 June 2011)
Best RPG off this console generation bar none. Even the PS3 fans can get a chance to play Mass Effect 2. Mass Effect 3 due out in 2012..
TX109 (on 09 June 2011)
one of the best games i have played all gen.
gustave154 (on 06 June 2011)
most overrated game ever
yahoocom1984 (on 05 June 2011)
Because RPG wise: New vegas > Mass effec t 2
foodfather (on 24 May 2011)
How can Fable III and New Vegas sell more than this game.
yahoocom1984 (on 22 May 2011)
hudsoniscool, Then we will see who's the boss, Skyrim or Mass effect 3
hudsoniscool (on 21 May 2011)
@yahoocom people were using that same argument with gears of war 2. it doesnt work.
AmericanAli (on 18 May 2011)
i love this game
yahoocom1984 (on 17 May 2011)
When Oblivion came out, there were only 3 million XBOX360 worldwide, when Mass effect 2 came out , there were over 38 million Xbox360 around world; But sales, haha... SKyrim clearly will sell like 4 million or 4.5 million on XBOX360 and Mass effect 3 will never catch this num
yahoocom1984 (on 17 May 2011)
Skyrim VS Mass effect 3 sales should compare to Fallout 3 VS Mass effect 2 sales, and Mass effect 2 will never outsell Fallout 3 on Xbox360, even Fallout new vegas; So Skyrim will clearly destory Mass effect 3 in sales
hudsoniscool (on 16 May 2011)
i wouldnt be surprised if ME3 outsold skyrim on 360. ME1 will reach 2.5 million and ME2 more than 3 million. Oblivion LT will be 3.5 million so if ME3 increases 500k on ME2 and skyrim doesnt increase or only a little they will sell about the same.
hudsoniscool (on 03 May 2011)
mass effect 2 should do more than 3 million lifetime.
yahoocom1984 (on 29 April 2011)
Skyrim > Mass effect 3
leslie2233 (on 23 April 2011)
Mass Effect 3 FTW
armchair_cynic (on 22 April 2011)
Skyrim obviously. They have a well established fanbase that Bethesda creates the game for. ME3 is going to, just like ME2, be built as an RPG for everyone, and when I say everyone I mean mainly "Call of Duty fans". Bethesda try to make the best Elder Scrolls game possible. Bioware are now trying to make the cheapest action game to sell to the most millions.
yahoocom1984 (on 15 April 2011)
Skyrim, mASS EFFECT 3; which one will sell more?
yahoocom1984 (on 14 April 2011)
All western RPGs were adjusted down including Mass effect, fable, fallout, Dragon age and Elder scrolls
hudsoniscool (on 10 April 2011)
looks like they adjusted it down a while ago. yahoocom 1984 all u do is bash 360 games, the only thing ive seen that you commend is crap of duty(horrible game)
yahoocom1984 (on 10 April 2011)
Best RPG? LOL, I can say this game is not a good as a RPG
BanTiger (on 10 April 2011)
bad sale for an amazing game,,,best rpg i ever played
jiminibillibob (on 09 April 2011)
best game ever until mass effect 3 of course
sanadawarrior02 (on 01 April 2011)
mass effect
yahoocom1984 (on 25 March 2011)
So New vgas beat it just in 4 months on XBOX360
yahoocom1984 (on 25 March 2011)
Yeah, for RPG wise: New vegas is better than Mass effect 2
Gimgak (on 19 March 2011)
Thank god new vegas beat this, maybe Mass Effect 3 will be an actual RPG
hudsoniscool (on 17 March 2011)
yahoo it will reach 3 million before mass effect 3
armchair_cynic (on 13 March 2011)
Well, I hope this is a lesson in dumbing down in time for ME3.
yahoocom1984 (on 12 March 2011)
yeah, adjust down.. This game has no legs
tgnevermore (on 12 March 2011)
Adjusted down???
hudsoniscool (on 06 March 2011)
man about 20k a week at that rate it will be at almost 3.5 million by the end of the year.
A203D (on 15 February 2011)
yahoocom1984. Dragon Age Origins did really well just recently in Japan, and if ME2 was on PS3 there it would do as well as DAO imo.
yahoocom1984 (on 13 February 2011)
Japanese will buy the PS3 version
account2099 (on 12 February 2011)
japanese really are missing a gem here...I mean cmon get by your bias with the 360
hudsoniscool (on 03 February 2011)
man its selling good right now. it will probably be at 3 million when mass effect 3 comes out
CrankyStroming (on 27 January 2011)
It looks like MS are publishing it over there in Japan like the first one, so PS3 is out of the question over there.
Mr Puggsly (on 21 January 2011)
Oh snap, this was the first week in Japan. It actually had a smaller opening than the first. I guess people are waiting for the PS3 version in Japan.
Mr Puggsly (on 15 January 2011)
Oh, I misread. Yeah, I agree with your numbers.
hudsoniscool (on 14 January 2011)
puggsly i was talking bout mass effect 3. i dont think ME2 on ps3 will ever pass 1 million. i think it will do slightly worse than bioshock on ps3
Mr Puggsly (on 14 January 2011)
@ hudsoniscool - It'll take a while for the PS3 version to even break a million. Like price cuts will be needed. Its not even in the top 30 pre-order list and the US is series strongest market.
yahoocom1984 (on 13 January 2011)
Actually, Sales are not bad for a single-player only RPG. Not as good as Fallout and Elder scrolls in terms of sales though
jester2358 (on 10 January 2011)
i said it was very doubtful hudsoniscool, it was a hope not a sales estimate
hudsoniscool (on 09 January 2011)
jester ME3 on 360 will likly do 3 miliion but on ps3 it wont do 2 million
hudsoniscool (on 09 January 2011)
should sell at least 2.75m lifetime
yahoocom1984 (on 06 January 2011)
2.5 m next month
Mr Puggsly (on 03 January 2011)
Impressive, surpassed ME1 sales in under a year. Its such an amazing game though that these numbers don't seem that impressive.
Millenium (on 02 January 2011)
Woot! On par with Mass Effect 1 sales!
drakesfortune (on 01 January 2011)
Yahoo, how much do you think this sold on PC?
yahoocom1984 (on 01 January 2011)
Sorry for my repetitive posts, internet problems
jester2358 (on 01 January 2011)
we get the point yahoocom lol, wish the sales were higher hopefully mass 3 does at least 3 million on each console. doubtful but gotta hope for my hometown developers.
yahoocom1984 (on 29 December 2010)
This game sold around 1 million on PC; so plus PS3 sales, this game will surely reach at least 4 million in total

@hudsoniscool I say aleast 700k, with ME3 legs
Naum (on 27 December 2010)
damn I thought this game would have sold atleast 4-5 million, kinda dissapointed in this 2.3 since it's very very good game, on my second playthrough now
NotStan (on 26 December 2010)
A shame, this game is awesome, the drop off even by 10th week is woeful :(
Reebokanonymous (on 24 December 2010)
I hope that Mass Effect 3 sells better than this. I think it will with its tentative Holiday 2011 release date. Fingers crossed.
hudsoniscool (on 18 December 2010)
the 360 version will probably get to 3 million a year or so after me3 comes out. the ps3 version on the other hand will likly sell about 500k copies
yahoocom1984 (on 17 December 2010)
win a few GOTY
armchair_cynic (on 10 December 2010)
@Puggsly It is equivalent to Gears of War. A common criticism of the game is that its essentially been turned into Gears of War with a light dialogue system. @Ishiki I know. Samaras loyalty mission. Thanes loyalty mission. Thats it. Two brief missions in the ENTIRE GAME that dont revolve around cover/shooting. Everything does. Its woeful.
MonstaMack (on 09 December 2010)
Should pass the first one in sales soon enough. Sadly the sales still lag behind other WRPGS like Oblivion and Fallout
ishiki (on 08 December 2010)
They Should have put hammerhead in though. The hammerhead in Overlord is awesome, it kicks the mako's ass 10 times over and the planet is beautiful.
ishiki (on 08 December 2010)
There's also whole missions with thane where you don't fight but follow and decide what to do about the situation.
ishiki (on 08 December 2010)
My opinion of the game. I think it's awesome. In my opinion the first one was an okay RPG and a bad shooter. In the second one it was a streamlined RPG and a good shooter with awesome powers. Also at Armchair, there's whole missions Samantha/Morinth where you don't fight at all. It's just dialogue!
Mr Puggsly (on 28 November 2010)
@ armchair_cynic - Insulting me doesn't change the fact you're wrong. Grow up a little. I played it, its more dialogue than actual game. You make it sound like its the equivalent of Gears of War or something.
armchair_cynic (on 27 November 2010)
@mr puggsly - dont be moronic. If you played ME2, you would either know for a fact most of the game is cover-shooting your way through linear shooting galleries. Otherwise youd be in denial. ME1 had large breaks in mission gameplay where there was much more dialogue. ME2 went all out for the brain dead shooter demographic, so you spent more time mowing down hordes of boring enemies than anything else.
Mr Puggsly (on 25 November 2010)
@ armchair_cynic - The masses enjoy more dialogue than game? That's news to me. Anyhow, it'll surely pass the original even if its not occuring fast enough for you.
armchair_cynic (on 23 November 2010)
that it hasnt passed the first one already is pathetic. With the amount of changes they made to appeal to the masses at the expense of RPG gameplay, added in that its a sequel to a hugely popular game, it should have left ME1 for dead. It hasnt, so its failed. Sure, it might limp past ME1 in terms of sales sometime in the near future, but I doubt thats what Bioware had in mind when they let greed ruin the RPG side of the game to go after shooter fans.
yahoocom1984 (on 23 November 2010)
and PS3 version next year
yahoocom1984 (on 23 November 2010)
yog-sothot , this game will surely outsell first one, look the sales trend
yog-sothot (on 22 November 2010)
I'm glad the game does not outsell the first one, I hope EA/Bioware gets the message that this game does not need to become an action game. Just make it more RPG ! Come on Bioware, you can do it !
Morning_Star (on 20 November 2010)
Good to see that this game is about to pass the first one. IMO this is the best game from this generation of consoles. I liked how they were able to get rid of the annyoing inventory systerm and the awful Mako. It was an improvement in every way from the first game, which was amazing as well. I'm also glad to see it go to PS3, so more people get to play it.
yahoocom1984 (on 14 November 2010)
Mass effect 2 will reach 3 million before Mass effect 3
Salem (on 13 November 2010)
For better or worse, it looks like its gonna outsell the original
yahoocom1984 (on 12 November 2010)
Mass Effect 2 beats crappy ASSASSIN CREED 2
armchair_cynic (on 03 November 2010)
Huge letdown. Well polished game sure, and they improved the shooter combat, but nothing else. Terrible, almost non-existent story. Formulaic and content lacking characters (also too many). All in all a hugely overrated letdown. I hope for ME3 Bioware spends more time on their strengths as developers rather than improving shooter combat, because it ruined ME2 for me. Only play this game if you enjoy killing wave after wave of enemies from behind cover, trogging through linear shooting galleries. In summary, the game ditched far too much from its predecessor, perhaps to acquiesce to EAs wishes for a money making shooter. Bioware, please dont follow the same method for ME3. Make the story and characters paramount, not just afterthoughts, piggybacking off you attempts at mainstream shooter combat.
A203D (on 30 October 2010)
god of war
ishiki (on 28 October 2010)
I agree with Jim
Jim6860 (on 28 October 2010)
As far as thebizkit claiming Mass Effect 2 probably having the greatest story ever, I have to totally disagree. There really isn't much of a story when going with the continuity from the first game. It is more focused on combat with squadmate acquisition and character building. Yes, it does carry somewhat of the story from the first game trying to lead up to an ending, but it is Mass Effect that truly has the best storyline and presentation when discovered during the gameplay. I do love Mass Effect 2 and it is an awesome game, but I score it hgiher for combat and characters than the story.
yahoocom1984 (on 28 October 2010)
A Pround Mass effect 2 owner here
thebizkit (on 28 October 2010)
I have been playing games since the late 80's, so I have been lucky to play greats from almost every console system out there. Mass Effect 2 is one of the greatest games I have ever played in my life, it probably has the greatest story ever. I'm shocked that such a great game did not sell better but blame it on a non holiday release. Either way who ever has not played this, pick it up!
DitchPlaya (on 21 October 2010)
It was doing well recently but dropped off the charts, what gives?
armchair_cynic (on 29 May 2010)
Personally Im glad to see this game limping towards the sales of its predecessor. Yeah, itll probably improve on ME1s sales, but now its an established IP, surely that was inevitable anyway?

I was massively disappointed with ME2s dumbed down shooter heavy direction. Id like to hope maybe theyll develop ME3 differently in light of this, but something tells me theyll just go even more shooter oriented.

Probably add multiplayer too...
donsterydo2 (on 29 May 2010)
Just before ME3 it should end at around 2.6m mark.
Kasersky (on 29 May 2010)
this is so fucking stupid, game should have sold better.
coolbeans (on 23 May 2010)
KungFuPanda + Lego Batman were bundled for a long time, A203D.
A203D (on 22 May 2010)
@chris100185
I would say its dissappointing because even if it reachs the sales of the 1st game, its still behind the likes of 'Kung Fu Panda', the Force Unleashed' and 'Lego Batman'. these are hardly triple AAA games, where as ME 1 & 2 are; and those games arnt shooters either.
chris100185 (on 22 May 2010)
So in 4 months it's sold 1.74 million which puts it under 500K behind the lifetime sales of the first game. How exactly is this a disappointment?
nathantay (on 21 May 2010)
This game is simply amazing!! People need to quit being douche bags and pick this game up.
hudsoniscool (on 20 May 2010)
if its not clear i was saying that its probably at 1.725 now on 360 and pc and will get to 2.5 combined. also in my oppinion its the best game of gen
hudsoniscool (on 20 May 2010)
isnt that 1.6 million just through march. if it is its probably at 1.725 million by now wich isnt bad and will get up to atleast 2.5 million ww
iWarMachine (on 18 May 2010)
i'm agreed with carl...what the hell...
Carl2291 (on 18 May 2010)
Not really.

I just think that having the 360 version alone greater than the game has actually sold on both PC and 360 is... Stupid.
makingmusic476 (on 18 May 2010)
@carl: You really care way to much about this. =/
Carl2291 (on 17 May 2010)
Still not adjusted?

Surprising. Wonder when it's gonna happen, and to what level...
rossoner (on 13 May 2010)
no,its 1.6 millions 4 360 and pc.
EA SHIPPED 2 millions not sold in first week.

U can check ea reports.
Zlejedi (on 12 May 2010)
That 1.6m i think is x360 version only EA said they sold over 2M copies in first few days.
rossoner (on 12 May 2010)
so judging by ea sales results this s overtracked.I cant believe me2 did so poorly,i mean 96 on meta nad 1.6 millions on 360 and pc(and pc did well acording to bioware).
stupid mw2,people dont appreciate great games
yungmagic09 (on 04 May 2010)
Just bought it, can't wait to start it up.
jpain333 (on 01 May 2010)
game is doing well, ME is at 2.2 million, which this game is already approaching, it will outsell it at the end of the year....wish it sold more, need to get my copy soon...
shio (on 30 April 2010)
The PC version killed some of the sales of the 360 version
drakesfortune (on 28 April 2010)
I really don't understand why it isn't selling better in Europe. It' s such a great game.
BulletProof (on 27 April 2010)
IT has some legs. Just look at the charts, its usally between 30-45 in NA.
blue7x7 (on 23 April 2010)
No wonder Publishers are scared of releasing games so early in the year and all usually wait to release their games near the holidays. I think that is what is stopping this game from selling is the time it was released. In January the month after Christmas where most people are broke. But lets see how well it sells this year maybe it will get a bump in the holidays if they release a GOTY edidtion.
Mr Puggsly (on 23 April 2010)
@ C_Hollomon
Well the PC being an option both legally and illegally is hurting the sales of this game.

But I don't think 360 piracy a lone is making a big impact.
NoPantsHoSlappa (on 23 April 2010)
it'll eventually reach 2 mill.
C_Hollomon (on 23 April 2010)
Pirates is what messing up the games sales.
Lyrikalstylez (on 22 April 2010)
Dont worry the game is gonna sell well come holidays and when it wins GOTY, u just wait & see
Saruman (on 21 April 2010)
yes, we shouldn't forget that ME2 was released on 360/PC at the same time (ME1 was a 360 exclusive at the beginning).

btw another 20k+ week
Catlana (on 20 April 2010)
The Mass Effect series is available on the PC as well. A lot of folks played that version.
sanadawarrior (on 18 April 2010)
sales for this have started to rebound a little, I wonder if its because the rush of games is over and now people have time to pick up the ones they missed...
Mr Puggsly (on 16 April 2010)
@ XxXProphecyXxX
What were people expecting? Its likely to hit 2 million this year and lifetime might get it to 3 million.

With PC sales on top of that, I would consider this very successful for a WRPG.
De85 (on 16 April 2010)
@ PLayMySTatioN
If you think this game and Halo: Reach are similar at all then you've probably never played a Halo or a Mass Effect game. There will be no effect of one on the other.
Saruman (on 16 April 2010)
24.000+ units were sold last week, hopefully a first sign of legs.
BulletProof (on 14 April 2010)
By the end of the year either 2m, or close to 2m.
I think ME2 will sell around 2.6m or something in its lifetime.
XxXProphecyXxX (on 14 April 2010)
wasn't a huge seller like most was expecting eh.....
Barozi (on 13 April 2010)
But at the moment it's selling 20k per week and even if it drops to let's say 13 or 15k per week, it will still see a holiday boost, which will raise the average.
At the end of this year it will easily be over 2 million.
Lifetime sales will be more around 3 million.
PLayMySTatioN (on 13 April 2010)
if u do the math, lets say ME2 sells 10k a week, 10 x 50 = 500k a year, lets say 2 years. 2.6m and i highly doubt it will continue to sell 10k a week that long. halo reach will render this obsolete
PLayMySTatioN (on 13 April 2010)
THOUSANDS! really!? it came out couple months ago and was a critical succes few K a week is not good. this game is looking at 2.5m MAX 2.3m seems more realistic
Mr Puggsly (on 09 April 2010)
@ rossoner
I told you where ME1 is, its still selling thousands every week. It did 5K last week and people can buy it via XBL. It hasn't reached its peak yet.

ME2 will be just over 2 million this year. Its such a great game and critical success that legs will be strong especially after price cuts.

The release of ME3 will also boost the sales of ME1 and ME2. ME Series = Legs
yog-sothot (on 09 April 2010)
do we have any clue about the PC version sales ? I know that it's hard to tell with the downloadable version...
Capulous (on 09 April 2010)
One of the best series of games I've ever played. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
rossoner (on 09 April 2010)
@puggsly
really?and where is now me1?
near 2.2 millions.There is no chance me2 ll hit 3 mills.at this momentum,until something amazing happens,or maybe a bundle.
Mr Puggsly (on 09 April 2010)
@ Baalzamon
It'll hit 3 million for sure. This game will keep selling for the life of the 360.

Even the original Mass Effect is consistently selling thousands every week.

Ping_ii (on 08 April 2010)
This game didnt even move up to 1.65 this week.....wow just sad.
Baalzamon (on 08 April 2010)
looks like this game might barely break 2 million lifetime...
Intendo21 (on 07 April 2010)
Some bad legs. People have to stop playing MW2.
coolbeans (on 07 April 2010)
I'm fairly sure some other great games have released since then, Vue.
Vueguy (on 07 April 2010)
with all the hype, this game haven't even reach 2m lol.
guess the 360 fans are still too busy with MW2.
PLayMySTatioN (on 07 April 2010)
GeneralMLD is horrible. im gonna check out youtube and see his excuse

this game is great. However. The only wow moment for me was the last mission. The rest
to me felt like a awesome corridor shooter, with
a solid story. I didn't like it as much as most others
but still a 9/10 for me.
Joel12345 (on 05 April 2010)
Lol Generalmld from youtube always praises sales well look at this and look at gow3 hmm my ammo has been found.
Apart from that this game deserves more sales
haxxiy (on 05 April 2010)
Even at worst, it still shall reach 2m by next January.
Catlana (on 05 April 2010)
Mass Effect 2 is one of the very best games this generation. Sales will improve as it wins some goty awards (especially rpg).
Doletskaya (on 04 April 2010)
The sales was also 1.62 mil two weeks ago when I checked it.Looks like it got really bad legs.
coolbeans (on 04 April 2010)
If you'd like to ignore Bioshock 2 and Bad Co. 2 then sure ........
PLayMySTatioN (on 04 April 2010)
people always talk about poor killzone 2 sales... killzone original sold less then 700k ....it tripled eventually will quadruple it.. ME2 has no other good competing xbox games for early 2010..
MonstaMack (on 03 April 2010)
Who said it would outsell GOW3? I don't know why anyone would, that was the most anticipated sequel on the PS3 outside of Metal Gear and Gran Turismo. Now, Mass Effect 2 is doing a great job when you look at Mass Effect 1 sales. It will outsell Mass Effect 2 by the end of this year which is a pretty good feat. On the other hand I can't wait to see ME3, I hope it gets released next year in January though that would be rather soon.
PLayMySTatioN (on 03 April 2010)
Sell not sem..-.-
PLayMySTatioN (on 03 April 2010)
I remember people says this will sem more then GoW3 ...
Ping_ii (on 03 April 2010)
Super poor legs indeed, I thought this was selling at least 30k a week turns out even lower.
NSS7 (on 02 April 2010)
If I have X360 this will be the first game i buy. Poor legs. It deserve more sales.
scottsdone (on 02 April 2010)
Never thought mining planets from space for minerals would be so addictive. x_x
De85 (on 02 April 2010)
Just got this and it's been pretty amazing so far. I don't think I'll be able to bear waiting for part 3.
poopface1 (on 01 April 2010)
I love this game and the free dlc is cool too.
m1987mp (on 31 March 2010)
This game is better than a lot of games and deserves the sales.
TheConduit (on 30 March 2010)
Would have sold much better as multi platform
Ping_ii (on 30 March 2010)
WOW...very poor legs in others.
mundus6 (on 27 March 2010)
With the PC version included (which was included when they said 2 million shipped) this game has sold more than 2 million already. And imo this is the best game of this generation so far.
Baddman (on 26 March 2010)
playing this game right now and wow wow this game is the best game i played since SOTC
Wagram (on 23 March 2010)
This game deserves more imo. Great game.
streamline2015 (on 21 March 2010)
Some people got confused, and in their defense some sites did say "SOLD IN 2 mill"....which means it shipped 2 mill to stores....the stores ordered two mill. But anyway yeah it shipped two mill and sold 1.5 in 7 weeks, in one of the slowest times of the year for game sales. It's fairly impressive.
HelloMotto (on 21 March 2010)
no, they didn't said it sold 2m copies first week, they said they SHIPPED 2m copies.

sold =/= shipped
Adobo (on 20 March 2010)
This is the best game ever. imo
Mr Puggsly (on 19 March 2010)
@ streamline2015
They said the game sold 2 million copies first week. So that's proof that the PC sales are substantial.
streamline2015 (on 19 March 2010)
@huaxiong90

That depends. There is no reliable PC numbers, but like I said it was on Direct2Drive's top 10 best sellers list for about 6 weeks. So the PC sales are pretty substantial.

As far as it's "legs", they're typical of a game released this time of year. To put it into perspective, "FFXIII" sold 1.5 million in it's first week, dropped to 180k the second week, and 5k in the 7th week in Japan. And "FF" is obviously huge in Japan.

Historically games released this time of year don't sell, and they don't sell for long.
huaxiong90 (on 19 March 2010)
I wonder how different the sales would be if there was no PC version?
huaxiong90 (on 19 March 2010)
These are terrible legs, sadly.
blue7x7 (on 18 March 2010)
Sales are ok 1.5 million for any game is great but this games is just to awesome it deserves more. If they released it during the holidays it would have definitely done better.
STEKSTAV (on 18 March 2010)
6k in Others in its 7th week? Horrible legs no?
streamline2015 (on 18 March 2010)
@mrstickball

Opps accidentally sent a message. Anyway yeah, exactly. Bioware already called out VG once for botching the first week sales of "ME1":
http://www.videogamer.com/news/mass_effect_sales_better_than_reported.html
And VG has changed the first week sales of "ME2" 2-3 times since it was released. These are educated guesses.
mrstickball (on 17 March 2010)
@streamline -

And if we knew D2D numbers, we could make judgments on if that matters at all.
streamline2015 (on 15 March 2010)
Sales figures on sites like this and NPD should be taken with a grain of salt. NPD only covers about 60% of the retailers in the U.S. and doesn't cover Wal-Mart, the biggest retailer. Also "ME2" has been on Direct2Drive's top 10 best sellers list since the game came out, so the PC sales are definitely good but not listed anywhere afaik.

So this is an estimate. Nothing worth arguing or trolling over.
FaRmLaNd (on 14 March 2010)
Its doubtful that the pc version is selling better. But some people that might have bought the 360 version may have purcahsed the pc version instead.

Its legs aren't that bad, its just that it isn't the holidays.
ProdigyBam (on 13 March 2010)
overtracked in america?
580k in january and 220k in february according to npd
haxxiy (on 13 March 2010)
Legs are kinda... bad, aren't they?
geddesmond2 (on 13 March 2010)
So how long before a PS3 announcement lol.
NaughtyDogGIVEEMORE (on 13 March 2010)
hahaha so much for 360 games selling better HAHAHAHAHAHA this is the best xbox game released in 2 years and no1 buying it HAHAHAHAHAHA
NaughtyDogGIVEEMORE (on 13 March 2010)
HAHA i was thinkn this was as good as uncharted guess not!!!!!HAHA uncharted released 5 months ago and it still is sellin better HAHAHAHAHAHA
Mr Puggsly (on 13 March 2010)
Lets not forget there is a PC version which might be selling even better and RPGs generally don't have amazing sales.
donsterydo2 (on 13 March 2010)
Good start but shitty legs.
chickenLittle (on 13 March 2010)
the sales is falling down quickly
burning_phoneix (on 12 March 2010)
If they can balance the shootery parts and the RPG parts in Mass Effect 3 they'll create the best game of all time. OF ALL TIME! /kanye
MonstaMack (on 12 March 2010)
My favorite RPG behind Suikoden 1/Suikoden 2 and that's saying a lot :)
Lyrikalstylez (on 11 March 2010)
All 360 owners should go out an buy this game,If yall like Shooting games Im sure you'll like this one.Plus it can turn you out to liking RPG's... just like myself!!
Adobo (on 08 March 2010)
This must be the Game of the Year! am on my 12th hours now and lacking of sleep. Must get the assassin....
Sanzee (on 07 March 2010)
Congrulations Casey and the BioWare team. This game made my brain go boom. I'm being completely serious when I say be careful before buying a BioWare game (dragon age not included). There usually so, so far ahead of the pact, so trying to play anything else afterwords is a bit underwhelming.
gustave154 (on 07 March 2010)
reviews helped this game. i hope it has good legs.
FaRmLaNd (on 07 March 2010)
Plus 1 sales!
FaRmLaNd (on 06 March 2010)
Of course its dropping faster. Sequels are generally more frontloaded and it wasn't released during the holidays.
dirkd2323 (on 05 March 2010)
One of the best games this gen, had so much fun playing . I am on my second time through already
heruamon (on 05 March 2010)
Weekly are dropping faster than the previous game, but I still think it's on track for 2-2.5 million ltd.
wiilicious (on 05 March 2010)
I can't wait for the new DLC...with the overcraft....This game is just 2010 GOTY IMHO.
huaxiong90 (on 05 March 2010)
This is dropping like a rock...I'm starting to worry.
ps3-sales! (on 04 March 2010)
I guess he was worried about ps3 sales?? IDK lol
coolbeans (on 04 March 2010)
I'm not following.......why's that phew-worthy?
Rawnchie14 (on 04 March 2010)
phew, the wind in their sales just died.
hotrod1 (on 03 March 2010)
luv Sifi..luv this game..the best sifi adventure of 2010!
MonstaMack (on 02 March 2010)
Even if it does 3+ million that would still be quite the achievement. The only game to go above 3+ million so far is Fable 2, tho I'm sure Fallout 3 can do some more units with Platinum Hits and GOTY Status. Dragon Age Origins will hit 3+ million eventually as well.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 01 March 2010)
@ StrategyKing

It's not going much higher than a million in Others (if that) so you expect 3-4 million America? Not happening.

It'll do 3 million lifetime I think.
FaRmLaNd (on 27 February 2010)
Still haven't got this yet :(
Strategyking92 (on 26 February 2010)
I'm thinking 4-5 million lifetime sales.
Altitude (on 26 February 2010)
Mass Effect 2 is one of the best games I've played in my life and the best purchase I've made in the last 10 years. The level of enjoyment I received from playing this hasn't been rivaled by another game in what seems like a lifetime.
Ghazi4 (on 26 February 2010)
r they planning on releasing it in japan? lol or they realized that xbox 360 is dead there :P (not trollin i love this game alot!)
huaxiong90 (on 26 February 2010)
This game is dropping fast on Xbox 360...well, next week should reveal everything.
ps3-sales! (on 25 February 2010)
Sales dropping pretty fast. Hopefully it'll hope up until the holidays.
STEKSTAV (on 24 February 2010)
So its been adjusted down 100k now. They were spot on the first time, then adjusted it up to 1m. And now down 100k to the original prediction. A bit easy on the adjustments maybe?
coolbeans (on 24 February 2010)
Sigh..........even those things you've mentioned (exept possibly anti-aliasing) are better looking in ME:2 as well, don't try to make some feeble attempt dragging this into me being wowed by the artistic level like the "average public", just stop there. ME:2 looks better overall then Gears 2, some things do look more visually impressive but they're few. Even reviewers would stipulate the same thing.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 23 February 2010)
Yeah, this game is way overrated graphically. On PC, even Gears 1 looks better.
haxxiy (on 23 February 2010)
I do not care for artistic level for it's subjective. Epic games achievement was much impressive than Bioware's. The average public being easily impressed by some fantasy alien landscapes (hello Avatar) do not change the fact textures, overall scenario quality and anti-aliasing are much better on Gears not to mention framerate. And DF's tech guys aren't the same as EG's reviewer body.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 23 February 2010)
Ew at those legs. I miss holiday sales already.
Sanzee (on 21 February 2010)
I miss the original game's music.
coolbeans (on 21 February 2010)
@haxxiy
No, ME:2 has overall better graphics then Gears 2. Character models when talking to people rival cutscenes. The overall scale and artistic design out do Gears 2 in many ways.
jpain333 (on 21 February 2010)
I like these sales...can't wait to get my hands on a copy...
piggychan (on 20 February 2010)
I guess you don't appreciate graphics on an artistic level..

http://www.vgchartz.com/games/pics/3931356aaa.jpg

and despite the bad things you picked out you you didn't seem to add any positive points which have been improved over the original game and they still awarded this game 10/10

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/mass-effect-2-review


http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-tech-analysis-mass-effect-2-article?page=2
haxxiy (on 19 February 2010)
@ anyone thinking this is the best of the X360 -
Gears 2 still has better graphics. ME2 framerate dips more on heavy battles and there is no AA. Go check EG's digital foundry analysis.
piggychan (on 19 February 2010)
also forgot to mention the insane difficulty is really p*ssing me off
piggychan (on 19 February 2010)
yea I was slightly dissappointed with the music I miss the original 80's synth music stuff..
Sanzee (on 19 February 2010)
Yes, I still think ME1 > ME2 cause ME2 completely lost that Late 70's/Early 80's sci-fi movie-like feel to it. That Bladerunner like feel the original had... ohh the fiction was SO thick. ME2 got mainstreamed but unlike the transition from Gears of War 1 to Gears of War 2, Bioware did it right.
Alceste007 (on 18 February 2010)
I have been truly impressed with Mass Effect 2. The new loyalty missions help flesh out your companions a great deal.
Zucas (on 18 February 2010)
Yes it was definitely a great game to play through but I still agree with my notions on the original: this is not Bioware's best. Obviously doesn't mean it is a bad game, but I enjoyed other Bioware games more.

But a very atmospheric game with some fun characters in your party.
Skeeuk (on 17 February 2010)
if its not on ps3 in a few months i might get hold of a copy for a playthrough
piggychan (on 17 February 2010)
good game the later on levels are almost breath taking in the sci fi artsy department.. really makes me wanna go and watch star trek stuff
Alasted (on 16 February 2010)
This game's amazing, Shepard!
Sanzee (on 16 February 2010)
What are you talking about? ME2 is now the best looking game on the 360. It kicked Gears 2 off its throne.
Fab_GS (on 15 February 2010)
Koris vas Qwib Qwib conversation is hilarious.
ZenfoldorVGI (on 15 February 2010)
Easily the best game I've played since Fallout 3. I think that this is much better than anything else released since then, and I actually really liked one or two of those games...but this game brings me back to the reason I love gaming. Man, it's just so.....great. 10/10
-ku- (on 15 February 2010)
WOW what a drop.
Well it still might outsell the predecessor in a year's time
Gearbox (on 14 February 2010)
graphics arent stellar. they are just way better then me1. no more of that ridiculous popin on EVERYTHING
Skeeuk (on 14 February 2010)
borrowed the game yesterday. only still on start of game where you are killing them droids, seems better than first but i dont see stella grafix that everyone is talking about.
Wagram (on 14 February 2010)
Great game. I hope it outsells the original.
donsterydo2 (on 14 February 2010)
@ProdigyBam: NPD's US sales =/= VGC's America sales...
ProdigyBam (on 13 February 2010)
Sold 570k in USA in 2 days according to NPD. but 800k in whole america in 6 days according to vgchartz.
lol, i find it funny that they (VGC) adjusted the figures shortly before the npd report, to make them look even more worse..
Fab_GS (on 13 February 2010)
Played it for 3 days so far and I'm already 20h in.
WAY better than the first one.
Grey21 (on 13 February 2010)
Mass Effect 2 deserves better sales then this. I blame the original, it was a good game but not polished enough to start a new AAA franchise. Hopefully word gets around how good ME2 is and the legs will help this game get to 2 million before 2011.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 12 February 2010)
:/ I expected over 100k in Others, "land of the legs", at least. That's a pretty hard fall.
geddesmond2 (on 12 February 2010)
I didn't expect a drop like that thou.
huaxiong90 (on 12 February 2010)
Hmm...let's see 3rd week to see how the legs will do.
Mr Puggsly (on 12 February 2010)
@ geddesmond2
Well when a game has an outstanding first week. There is always a big drop second week. This always happens.
geddesmond2 (on 12 February 2010)
Sales dropped a lot.
STEKSTAV (on 12 February 2010)
Okay? NPD has it at 572k first week? I know VGC also include mexico and canada or whatever. But the +220k dosent follow other games % sold outside of the US patterns.

Adjustments once more?
Product (on 12 February 2010)
was unaware Europe had anything to do with NPD data.....or "americas" VGChart data.
iWarMachine (on 11 February 2010)
YAY FOR ADJUSTMENTS!

@product

where's Europe in your deduction?
Strategyking92 (on 11 February 2010)
Yeah, I can't believe VGChartz under tracked the first week by almost exactly 100K.. I mean, that's alot, dude.

I am happy about it though, I knew it sold more than that.
Fab_GS (on 11 February 2010)
This game is amazing!
numonex (on 11 February 2010)
Adjusted up to become a first week million seller. Woohoo
--OkeyDokey-- (on 10 February 2010)
@ piggychan

You did Jack? Ew O_o

Wow at American sales.
Mr Puggsly (on 10 February 2010)
Well it looks like a first week million seller after all.
Catlana (on 10 February 2010)
Mass Effect 2 is simply an amazing game. The last hour is just spot on.
lurkerwithnosoul (on 10 February 2010)
And it broke a Million after all. Or At least VGChartz says.
Strategyking92 (on 10 February 2010)
She takes her helmet off.
Not that you get to see her face though.
piggychan (on 10 February 2010)
getting it on with Tali just seemed weird with the space mask helmet thing so I passed and went with jack... >.>
Skeeuk (on 10 February 2010)
i will be getting this game later, mabey just after e3 time.
torchmoney1 (on 09 February 2010)
this game dont suck by the way
torchmoney1 (on 09 February 2010)
x-box owns software sales cause microsoft help push all software even if the game sucks
Wagram (on 09 February 2010)
I got with Tali also, Ashley Williams pissed me off so I cheated on her! Wuahahahahahha.
elzumo (on 09 February 2010)
Getting with Tali was pretty satisfying.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 09 February 2010)

gustave154 (on 08 February 2010)
nice american sales... others sales are low but it will definitely have legs.
iWarMachine (on 07 February 2010)
@toastboy
yeah it's pretty likely, i say 300k.
this game is like crack indeed.
Rawnchie14 (on 07 February 2010)
This game is like crack
Gearbox (on 07 February 2010)
amazing game. my 360 had so much dust on it be4 this
FaRmLaNd (on 07 February 2010)
Will buy this soon.
toastboy44562 (on 06 February 2010)
400k next week mark my words
numonex (on 06 February 2010)
This game will easily sell over 3 million copies ltd. It deserves all its sales and high reviews.
STEKSTAV (on 05 February 2010)
@Mr Puggsly.. i didnt consider anything. EA shipped 2m to retail, thats all. And the 360 version obviously sold 930k first week.
r505Matt (on 05 February 2010)
@heruamon, indeed, best game this gen. Takes all the good in Mass Effect 1 and makes it better. Takes all the bad and throws it out.
The way the game is designed, whether you love or hate RPGs isn't important, you can enjoy the game either way.
drakesfortune (on 05 February 2010)
Great sales. Everyone should buy this game. It's amazing.
penguin (on 05 February 2010)
Best game I have ever played, it is amazing
heruamon (on 05 February 2010)
Best game this gen, imho...it 's lookign to push 3-4 million units LTD...nice!
TURbo (on 04 February 2010)
EA said they shipped 2 million units at launch, not sell
Mr Puggsly (on 04 February 2010)
@ themanwithnoname
Fable 2 didn't compete with a PC release. The PC version is $50 on Steam and they don't charge taxes. That's about $15 cheaper than the 360 version at a retailer.
Mr Puggsly (on 04 February 2010)
@ STEKSTAV
Did you consider the 2 million also included PC sales?
STEKSTAV (on 04 February 2010)
@ reaver_x - 2m was shipped games from EA to retail. Not retail sold to average joe.

Good sales, and one cant help but thinking that this is the 360 counterpart to PS3s Uncharted 2. Both about the same first week, both at about 96 metacritic, both (probably) GOTY, both epic story, both with good graphics. Dont jump me people! Just spreading the love.
kiefer23 (on 04 February 2010)
Could of easily hit 1m first week if they released it simultaneously world wide (Tuesday). Not Friday in Europe/UK.
reaver_x (on 04 February 2010)
wait didnt they say this did 2 million first week?? if so than this is severly undertracked
Hidalgo (on 04 February 2010)
Congrats for great OW numbers!!
themanwithnoname (on 04 February 2010)
I thought this was a lock for 1 million first week. I don't know how Fable II managed it. Then again, it probably has a much larger following in the UK I'd imagine. Great sales nonetheless. :)
Jexy (on 04 February 2010)
This game keeps blowing me away. Just awesome.
huaxiong90 (on 04 February 2010)
@donsterydo2: Well, for one thing, it isn't the strongest region for Xbox 360 software-wise. But another thing you need to consider is how Mass Effect is more aimed towards North American and British audiences.
Chris Hu (on 04 February 2010)
Great sales will easily outsell the first one.
huaxiong90 (on 04 February 2010)
..now.
huaxiong90 (on 04 February 2010)
Ooooh...just short of 1 million. Still, excellent sales. It's all about the legs.
kuddles (on 04 February 2010)
Great sales for a great game.
Barozi (on 04 February 2010)
5 days of sale in the US vs. 2 days in EU.
Still a bit lower than I though. Not bad at all though.
donsterydo2 (on 04 February 2010)
Others like always don't buy any games. What a shame....
aragod (on 04 February 2010)
Others bought PC versions.
Munkeh111 (on 04 February 2010)
Great start for the game, though I expected better in Others
Fab_GS (on 04 February 2010)
@2mrw

They SHIPPED 2m WW (X360 + PC)
http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/rpg/masseffect2workingtitle/news.html?sid=6248614

Stop making things up
2mrw (on 04 February 2010)
it was reported that the game sold 2 million copies (EA) , So the PC version sold 1 million copy!!!!!!!!!!!
hard to believe.
Mr Puggsly (on 04 February 2010)
@ pchyczewski
When are people going to stop comparing expensive computers to a $200 gaming console?

Just be glad the Xbox 360 is helping this franchise be very successful.
pchyczewski (on 04 February 2010)
Play this on the PC, it looks and plays better on it anyway.
Strategyking92 (on 03 February 2010)
Awesome game. The Galaxy and characters were even more involved than the last time.

The RPG elements lacked though.
Anyway, made it through the suicide part with only 2 team members dead (legion and mordan)
And am going back to fix that later so that 100% of team survives.
Then I will 1000/1000. Then Eventually 1200/1200 or whatever challenges more DLC brings.
mrstickball (on 03 February 2010)
Err, never mind. I assume you beat ME2 on Insanity for the first playthrough?
mrstickball (on 03 February 2010)
@Zucas - How did you manage 49/51?

As far as I saw in my playthrough, the most I could get was 48/51.
mrstickball (on 03 February 2010)
As I've been saying, BioWare will port the entire trilogy to PS3 after its finished. I think that way, its fair to everyone - PS3 fans get to play the entire story arc on one BR-DVD, and X360 fans have completed it years in advance.

I wouldn't even be surprised if ME3 was 'multiplat' in the fact that it debuts on both systems at the same time.
Wagram (on 03 February 2010)
Am about 31 hours in. I still don't have 2 characters. I am playing on Insanity though so this game should last me well into the 40 hours mark. On track for 1000/1000G so far! :)
Recon1O1 (on 03 February 2010)
Bioware again build on their strengths, story, characters and immersion are second to none. Moving towards more linear and separate missions though. I miss exploration, vehicle combat and collecting armor etc. Hate, the red veins blocking my vision, reloads and mineral collection. WWTT? 92
Zucas (on 02 February 2010)
Finally beat this game after about 30 hours (hey was getting 49/51 achievements haha). Definitely enjoyed this game a lot. Was quite a visceral experience and can't wait for the final one in the triology.
Lyrikalstylez (on 01 February 2010)
This Game is Simply Awesome. The 360 version is superior in my opinion.
And I highly doubt this game is going on ps3, but even if it doesnt I suggest everyone go out and play it, because its one of the best games this gen!!
Kenoid (on 01 February 2010)
Wow, amazing sales expected for a game like this =)
Devilater (on 01 February 2010)
@ Riot Of The Blood

It probably will come to PS3, Bioware is owned by EA now and EA likes to have games multiplatform.
Bioware also said developing on the PS3 was fun and they're keeping quiet about ME2 hitting the PS3, they just can't talk about it thy say.

Finished it on the PC, the superior version. But nonetheless, this is the greatest both FPS and RPG this generation. It's better than any Modern Warfare or Final Fantasy, this game will blow off your ****.

Mass Effect 2 will have a much higher average review score on Metacritic and Gamerankings than FFXIII. Mass Effect 2 will sell up to 4 million sales ltd, user base has more than doubled since Mass Effect launched back in 2007. Bigger userbase means bigger sales.

Such a great series.

Mass Effect 2>>>>>Final Fantasy XIII

I hope this come for PS3. Never shoulda sold my 360. Completely forgot about this game.

@Okey
Not really, seeing how it's laid out like how there's now ammo instead of overheating, HUD mixed around, etc. I just don't find it better than ME's personally.

@ STEKSTAV

The cover system isn't as flexible as Gears or Uncharted, but the powers make up for that. It's just as good a third person shooter as any out there, imo.

Much better than it's already great predecessor. (except for its boxart :p)
STEKSTAV (on 31 January 2010)
@ okeydokey - just because its better than the first one doesn't mean that there isn't better games out there with better gunplay.

I still think the coversystem is very weak. Not as smooth as i'd like. But the story makes up for all of that.

Finished 2 playthrough's of this game so far as a soldier and adept. One on Veteren difficulty and the other on Hardcore. Did all the sidequests (that i know of probably missed a few) and it took me around 45 hours combined. Gonna do an insane runthrough sometime and get the rest of the achievements
--OkeyDokey-- (on 31 January 2010)
How can you be disappointed in the gunplay? It's a generational leap over the first game.
coolbeans (on 30 January 2010)
Been glued to this game, shocked at the graphic upgrade but must admit I'm a tad disappointed in the overall gunplay.

just arrived today ready to lock and load!!!!

Only an hour in but am very impressed already. Can't wait to get really stuck into it this weekend.
Catlana (on 28 January 2010)
The game is pretty amazing. I do miss some of the rpg elements from the first one, but the combat system is simply better.
Wagram (on 28 January 2010)
About 8 hours in, it is so far a big step up from the 1st one. I don't think you can consider this an WRPG though. Not that i'm complaining.
Zucas (on 28 January 2010)
12 hours in and enjoying every moment of it. Although like the first one, it doesn't necessarily feel like an RPG at all, I do think the RPG elements in it have been vastly expanded and give me that feeling. Definitely epic in scale and great attention to detail in every aspect of the game. Amazing game.
Mahorosan (on 27 January 2010)
I just finished my 2nd play through on ME1 and went directly into ME2. I think that was the best way to go..felt soo natural.
Mutiverse37 (on 27 January 2010)
7 hours in and the scale is like 10 times larger than the first game. I'm not going to be getting much sleep. haha
wiilicious (on 26 January 2010)
This game is just so great...wow!!!
richardhutnik (on 26 January 2010)
MAYBE Mass Effect 2 gets released... some day, but I wouldn't bank on it. Releasing Mass Effect as a trilogy for the PS3 makes sense for the trilogy, but I don't see it being done now.
Intendo21 (on 25 January 2010)
He smiled sometimes in the first one and it looked creepy.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 25 January 2010)
Has anyone noticed that Shepard smiles in this one? And that it look really creepy?
SonySoft (on 22 January 2010)
Can this beat the first game?
Mutiverse37 (on 11 January 2010)
@ps360fan10,
Well there is no chance for the first game, but since Microsoft Game Studios is not publishing ME2......it is possible. I think EA has a good relationship with Sony.
PS360fan10 (on 09 January 2010)
Will this game come out on PS3? Anyone???
ArcticGabe (on 05 January 2010)
Can't wait :)

PlaystaionGamer (on 04 December 2009)
i really like the box art, its old school
Mutiverse37 (on 15 August 2009)
Why do the say the rumors of Sheppard's death are greatly exagerated? Sheppard was alive at the end of the first game. So unless there is transitional story components not revealed, I'm confussed.

@Mrstickball

And how do you know that? Answer you don't and you're just assuming, but you can throw all that out of the window since EA acquisition. But the best PS3 only owners can hope for is a late port IMO.

Either way I don't care I'm picking this one ASAP, supposedly Shepard is not dead
mrstickball (on 12 June 2009)
Its unlikely to be multi-plat on the PS3. It's too big of a series for MS to let it go, plus, AFAIK, BioWare signed a contract with MS for the entire trilogy.

PS fans will probably need to wait till the 3rd one is done and pick up a boxed set for all 3 games.
De85 (on 23 January 2009)
First day purchase.
Slavedemonxi (on 11 December 2008)
I hope it is multiplatform. More people will get to play it, extremely fun game.
palitococo (on 14 November 2008)
This one could be multi-platform?
Well, Bioware is an EA company now and all of us know the EA policy.

The best game of the generation and one
of the better i've ever play

Deserved to sell more; best WRPG of the
generation.

Sales have been picking up recently,
hopefully the franchise gets the
attention it deserves, PS3 port helped a
lot with that at least.
