Yes, but Microsoft has probably given them a massive incentive (i.e. an 8 figure payment) to release it exclusively (for now) on the XBox 360. Microsoft paid a whopping $20 Million for Lost Planet exclusivity and they are rumored to have paid an incredible amount of money for exclusive downloadable content for GTA IV. (I think it was $40 Million: just for DLC — let that sink in for a moment). I'm guessing they paid Bioware a significant 8-figure sum to make Mass Effect XBox 360 exclusive for at least a year.
