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; KasumiOverlord; 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.

Mass Effect Trilogy coming this November

Mass Effect Trilogy Bioware just announced Mass Effect Trilogy, which is pretty much all Mass Effect games wrapped up in one neat package. It's out on November and it will be available on Xbox 360, and PC. For PS3 though, the trilogy will be released on a later date.

It will be released on November 6, 2012 for Xbox 360, and PC. It will be priced at $59.99.

The first Mass Effect is finally heading to Playstation 3. I'm pretty sure they are currently working on porting the game to the PS3, which is why the PS3 version of the trilogy is planned for a later date. I didn't think they would bother to bring Mass Effect 1 to the PS3, but I guess they had to because of this package. Wouldn't be much of a trilogy without the first, now would it?

as you can see above, it will include all three games, and an exclusive artbook, all wrapped up in a premium foil box.
