Do you have a lot of free time to play video games, but not a lot of money to play them? Really? You have free time? You lucky bastard! Now that that’s out of the way, Electronic Arts and Bioware have announced that they will be packaging the Mass Effect trilogy and releasing it on one single bundle. For the price of a single game ($59.99, duh) you’ll have access to Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and… ah, what was it? Oh right, Mass Effect 3.
Surprisingly though, the collection is also coming to the PlayStation 3 which basically means that for the first time, the original Mass Effect will be playable on Sony’s home console. But wait, there’s a catch! While the trilogy is coming to the Xbox 360 and PC on November 6th, the PS3 version will arrive at a later date.
Additionally, those players who would like to buy the original Mass Effect as a standalone downloadable title on PSN will be able to do so whenever that version is finished. It’s worth mentioning that November 6th isn’t a random date. Electronic Arts declared it the N7 day, also known as a worldwide celebration of Mass Effect. EA will be using the N7 day to promote the franchise with in-game and real world live events.
So can anyone declare a day just like that? I declare today the day of the trilogies! Now Bioware, about that ending…
