Both versions of Mass Effect 2 hitting at the same time

According to game associate producer Jesse Houston, the PC version of Mass Effect 2 will see a simultaneous release with its console brother.  

"We learned a lot from building the PC version before,” Houston told VG247 at gamescom, “and having built it six months later there was a big difference. So we actually took what we learned from PC and put it back into 360,"

PC owners had to wait several months for their port of the original Mass Effect, a version that boasted better textures and a platform-customized UI. The original Mass Effect shipped in November 2007 for the Xbox 360. The PC version lagged behind the initial release taking an additional six months before it landed on store shelves in May 2008 -- a nasty delay that BioWare is trying to avoid this time around.

"Fundamentally, we want you to have the same gameplay experience, but just with the difference in controls,” Houston said. “This time round, doing it at the same time for a sim-ship, we can control the differences much more smoothly because it’s the same team building it now."

We’re all about simultaneous releases as long as one version isn’t delayed because of the other. Mass Effect 2 needs to happen, like, now. The anticipation is killing us.
