EA: "We Own The Mass Effect IP"

So I was just surfing around and ran across a interesting comment from EA.

We understand, Matt, but what about the intellectual property itself? Does EA own the Mass Effect name? "Yes. EA owns the rights to Mass Effect." And so, as far as exclusivity between Mass Effect and Microsoft, that doesn't exist? "That's right," he told us.
Interesting, Mass Effect is one of the 360's more lauded titles, garnering critical
anc consumer praise, I've always been curious about it but by no means would miss it should it not come our way, but hey the more the merrier right? :D

Just based on what ive seen with the game, id never buy it to be honest. Doesnt look interesting to me at all. Would be cool if it came to PS3 for "payback" for Rising going to xbox though.

A little tit for tat never hurts, if anything Mass Effect can only benefit from going to the PS3, look at what team ninja is pulling off with Ninja Gaiden

Hey SaintAvi,
I don't know if it was in the article you quoted from but I also say quote from Bioware stating that now that they are apart of EA and have been working with the PS3 that they have been completely impressed with the console's capabilities. So good news all around. I agree with Dustin, this game does not interest me but it would be nice to have it in the PS3 lineup.

Yea I heard that mentioned, I believe it was in reference to the dragon age game that will be coming out this year, its a good sign that they are getting comfortable with the hardware though.

The Xbox received a port of Sons of Liberty, that was all they had from the
MGS franchise up until Rising was announced.

MGS2 port was not done by Kojima and sold like crap, let alone not many xbox fans liked it.

As for Bioware, when you say Dragon Age...now thats a game im extremely interested in.

Well if they are open to developing for the PS3 and liking the hardware as mentioned, I can only hope its a matter of time before they cozy up to it some more with some mass effect love :D

Now that they are the property of EA, I think exclusives are pretty much out the window,
outside of handhelds, EA spreads its titles to any console thatll have it

Because L4D is developed and published by Valve who are still a private company, L4D is only Distributed by EA

Bioware is owned by EA, who also publishes their games

Dragon Age looks like crap IMO. Generic fantasy game with bulging men wearing loincloths with huge swords and heavy boots. Mass Effect had a lot of technical problems, but the universe is amazing and the game is really slick. Can't wait for Alpha Protocol, Obsidian's take on Mass Effect.
