Mass Effect 2 is landing on PS3s next Tuesday and BioWare is here to tell you why it's anything but a simple port of the Xbox 360 and PC versions.

"PlayStation fans have been asking for Mass Effect for years and we are very pleased to finally be bringing it to a new branch of Mass Effect fans," wrote BioWare community coordinator Chris Priestly.

"However, what I think Mass Effect fans on the PS3 will be most appreciative of is that this is not a simple port. The Mass Effect team has taken the time to utilize the PS3 hardware to the fullest in order to maximize your gameplay experience.

"You will also see that the in-game graphics and cinematics are clearer and more vibrant on the PS3. As an added bonus, the PS3 version includes previously released DLC missions: Overlord, Lair of the Shadow Broker and Kasumi."

Mass Effect 2 for PS3 will be hitting retail shelves on January 18. In addition, BioWare and Sony are also releasing a full digital download version via the PlayStation Store. The demo is currently up for grabs on the PlayStation Store as well.
