Just saw this five minutes ago. I've always wanted to play Mass Effect, and I didn't want to buy the X360 just for this game. Now, I don't have to!

Here's the announcement on Yahoo.

very nice, but its rather pointless for me since i already have the game for the 360. still, at least it will be easier to snipe and pull of headshots by aiming with the mouse. i just wish Bioware was going to add something more to the PC version aside from an improved/optimized GUI (as stated in the announcement). if there's some nice mods out there, i'll probably pick it up eventually, but otherwise, its a rather moot point for me.

Oh, I'm sure I'll buy it....just cuz I'm such a BioWare CrackWhore...*chuckle*
I cannot WAIT for the oh-so-talented mod community to get hold of it!
(I'm also very interested in having an improved inventory...*grrr*)

Awesome.

We pretty much knew it was going to happen eventually, but it's cool to see an official announcement especially because of the release date. I thought about getting a 360, but since Mass Effect was really the only game that interested me, I decided it wasn't worth it. Now I get to finally play it in May. This make Bob Happy Lion.

Wow, this is only what, only three months after it was out for the 360? Remind me never to take BioWare seriously when they announce future titles as console-exclusive.

(Not that I mind, of course, but I am somewhat worried for my health - playing Torment, BG2, Mask of the Betrayer and ME all within the span of eight months may cause me to implode from the awesome.)

Hah--you still have VtMB calling your name, so I don't even want to hear it.

You try thumbing keys on a smartphone in between patients and see how well you spell, too.

Ooh, wonderful! This game looks marvelous, however, I had no 360 so I felt all hope was lost. And then this happends!

I'm probably going to need to upgrade my computer three years. So out of date...

I hope We can mod it to be Star Wars!!

Mass Effect was a massive disappointment to me (IMO), but the basis for a good game was there, graphics were awesome etc. Maybe I can make it a game I enjoy

Probably not, Lucasarts seems to have a certain fondness for putting a stop to Starwars mods for games not released by them.

Great news that a PC version is in the works, seems like it's time to start caring about this game and see what it is about. I just hope the system requirements aren't too draconian.
