"Mass Effect Trilogy" Announced for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC

PS3-only fans get their first chance to try out the original "Mass Effect"

Sorry, everybody--I was fine with Mass Effect 3's ending. In something like this, the journey is always more important than the destination. I got more from the series when my Shepard first talked down a tense hostage situation, or discovered the hilarious alien porn mag and gave it to Grunt, or saw that the abusive Jack had turned into a tough-love teacher in the third game. It's like that with every video game--no matter how good or bad the ending is, the journey is what took you there.



Because every ending ever needs total closure


Fans of the series can finally pick up all three games in one set--Mass Effect Trilogy is coming on November 7, dubbed "N7 Day" by BioWare. The $59.99 trilogy will be available for Xbox 360, PC, and PS3, marking the first time that the original Mass Effect is available on PS3. It will also be released as a standalone downloadable on PSN. So far, there's no word on whether or not any of the series' excellent DLC (especially the story-related stuff for ME2) will be included in the set.


All you PS3 people can finally get the chance to actually make some of the huge decisions from the first game... but now with actual context and emotion that you don't get from playing the interactive comic. Hopefully the elevator rides aren't quite as long.



Just to clarify something: they're all RPGs, it's just that ME2 and ME3 require better reflexes


The trilogy's release will be a part of the first official N7 Day, which is set to be a worldwide celebration of the Mass Effect franchise. BioWare is planning in-game, online, and live events to celebrate the series, but no further details were given.


After obsessing over Mass Effect for like five years, I'm kind of taking a break from the series, but what about you? Will you be picking up the series now that the trilogy is complete and available in one package?
