BioWare confirmed that this time around both of the PC and Xbox 360 versions of Mass Effect 2 will be released simultaneously.
"We learned a lot from building the PC version before, 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," BioWare associate producer Jesse Houston said.
"Fundamentally, we want you to have the same gameplay experience, but just with the difference in controls. 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."
