Default Dragon Age - Gone Gold, PS3 on time and more!

October 23rd, 2009, 22:26
This isn't a surprise but it's always nice to see the confirmation announcement - Dragon Age has gone Gold and will be available on all platforms from November 3rd in NA. This includes the PS3 version - which was expected to be later in the month. This was the "exciting" PS3 news foreshadowed on the official site, according to VG247 who followed the dev chat on PSN.
In addition to the Gold announcement, the final Penny Arcade Witch Hunt is up and Worthplaying has three new screens and a (hopefully) new trailer.
Here's the PR:
All Versions of Dragon Age: Origins to be Available November 3

EDMONTON, Alberta—(Business Wire)—
Leading video game developer BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts Inc.
(NASDAQ:ERTS), announced today that the PlayStation3 version of Dragon Age:
Origins will be available on November 3, 2009 in North America. The PlayStation
3, Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game have "gone gold" in North America and
are currently in manufacturing ready for their November 3 launch date. At
launch, Dragon Age: Origins will be available on all three platforms with
several packs of downloadable content (DLC) including The Stone Prisoner, the
Blood Dragon Armor and Warden`s Keep; each further enriching the gameplay
experience.
"We`re excited to confirm that all three versions of Dragon Age: Origins will be
available to fans on November 3 in North America," said Ray Muzyka, Group
General Manager, RPG/MMO Group of EA, and Co-Founder, BioWare. "The Dragon Age:
Origins development team was able to polish the PlayStation 3 version to our
high standard of quality and we are ready to deliver the richest and deepest
role-playing fantasy experience across all three platforms."
In anticipation of the game, players can begin their Dragon Age: Origins
experience early by joining the BioWare Social Network — a destination to share
in-game screenshots, review game data and share story information. Players can
also download the free* to download Character Creator where players can create
and customize a player character on the PC and then upload their character data
and avatar to the BioWare Social Network before Dragon Age: Origins launches.
The Dragon Age: Origins Character Creator will provide players with the tools to
create a character with a nearly endless amount of options. Players can download
the character creator and get more information on the BioWare Social Network by
clicking here.
InDragon Age: Origins, players take the role of a Grey Warden, one of the last
of an ancient order of guardians. Now, as a rising evil threatens to destroy all
life, it is up to players to unite the shattered lands and slay the corrupted
dragon known as the Archdemon. To restore peace, players must make ruthless
decisions and be willing to sacrifice their friends and loved ones for the
greater good of mankind.
Dragon Age: Origins will be released on November 6th in Europe on the Xbox 360
videogame and entertainment system and PC. The European PlayStation3 version
will follow later in November. Dragon Age: Originsis rated M by the ESRB and 18+
by PEGI.

-eh-



So the big announcement was that the PS3 version of the game will come out at the same time as the Xbox 360 and the PC version?

I thought it was something bigger than this, maybe a dlc exclusive for PS3? or something completely different that this.

Also, I still don't get the Penny Arcade cartoon? I thought it was supposed to be a comic relief?

edit:

good to know, though, that the game is on time

sad to know that I can't afford the game right now

edit 2:

The trailer linked to this newsbit is the trailer for the last character NPC, a dwarf named Oghren.

For me, the biggest issue is time, I probably won't get around to playing DA until long after it's released.

I don't get why they can release the ps3 version in the US on the same day as the others but in Europe it is relegated to a later in November.

The same way that there are boxes of Borderlands in stores now but you can't play until next week …

BOOYAAAHHH!!!

I know it's not a surprise, but having an official announcement sure makes me feel better. I can't wait to get my hands on this.

I so wanted to post this when there was an announcement, but Dhruin is just too fast. Man, you're like greased lighting with these newsbits.

Despite all my rage.
I'm still just a rat in a cage.

a Bit disappointing that US ps3 gamers get preferential treatment. Don't know why the ps3 version for europe and rest of the world can't launch with the pc and xbox 360 on 6 November.

Great news that is gold though. Can't wait for 6 November to get my copy of the CE for pc.

It's simple : Bigger market. Less translation costs.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
