While Mass Effect was originally a Microsoft exclusive IP, this is nonetheless great news for Sony console owners the world over. Picking up where the first game left off, Commander Shepard is killed in an ambush by a mysterious alien species called the Collectors. Shepard is revived two years after the attack by an enigmatic organization called Cerberus, and is tasked with combating the Collectors menace. Mass Effect 2 arrives on the Playstation 3 early next year.
