Mass Effect Trilogy finally launched on the PlayStation 3 today. For the first time ever, gamers can experience the series’ first entry on Sony’s console.
The one downside is that Mass Effect 1 appears to be marred by technical issues. Earlier today, IGN editor Colin Moriarty mentioned how the title suffers from long load times as well as some “severe texture pop-ins at times” and frame rate issues.
Oh, so I can talk about Mass Effect on PS3 now. It's totally the same for the most part, but there is some strangeness...
...long loading times, severe texture pop-in at times, and I had this one time where the framerate dropped so badly that I had to restart.
Now, it’s true that some of these problems were apparent in the original Xbox 360 release of Mass Effect 1. But some may nonetheless be displeased with this news, especially given that the team said that the game would feature improved texture popping and overall better performance on the PlayStation 3.
