Mass Effect Trilogy dated for the PS3
We mentioned last month that Bioware is releasing a Mass Effect Trilogy that includes all three games in one sweet package. It's planned for a November 6 release for Xbox 360 and PC, but with no PS3 release announced. Now they have placed a date for the PS3 version of the trilogy.
The PS3 version of the trilogy is a bit more tricky compared to the other two platforms. Simply because the original Mass Effect was never released on the PS3. In the latest Bioware blog post, they mentioned issues while implementing the original Mass Effect to the PS3 system. But everything worked out and we now have a release date for the PS3. November 4 is the release date for the PS3 version of the Mass Effect Trilogy, roughly one month gap between the PC and Xbox 360 version.
The blog post also mentioned what DLC's will be included for each platform.
The PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect Trilogy will have the original Mass Effect with Bring Down the Sky integrated into the game, both on-disc and on the PSN download. Mass Effect 2 will still have the same DLC on-disc that it was originally shipped with: Cerberus Network; Kasumi; Overlord; and Lair of the Shadow Broker. Finally, Mass Effect 3will also be exactly as it originally shipped.
The Xbox 360 version will include all DLC that came with the original games – Cerberus Network with Mass Effect 2and Mass Effect 3 remains unchanged as well. The PC is the same as Xbox 360, except both Bring Down the Skyand Pinnacle Station are available for free – just as they are for all PC players who purchases each standalone product today.
I'm hoping the PS3 version of Mass Effect will be bug free because depending on how well the first game performs will pretty much determine if that version is worth getting.
