The lights are on
While most gamers associate the rugged face of the male version of Shepard with the Mass Effect series, many discerning players actually prefer the voiceovers (done by Jennifer Hale) of the female version of Shepard.To appease those fans, BioWare's marketing director David Silverman tweeted today that the female Shepard will appear side-by-side with her male counterpart on the box art to the Mass Effect 3 collector's edition.

Eww... Girls are icky! Nah, not really. I just hope they make it looked cooler than the steelbox for the ME2 Collector's Edition. The picture of Shepard squatting down looked pretty weak.
Cool! That is an awesome idea, and it just so happens that my femshep save is the one I currently intend on using in ME3.
That's cool, my original Shepard was a girl, and she was awesome.
Hell yes! I was just having a discussion about this the other day: why is the female Shepard never highlighted in any of their marketing? I'm glad that they decided to include her this time around. :)
i will get the collector's edition of the game in 2012.
Good on them, but Bioware has been acting pretty politically correct as of late. Especially after playing DA2, I have to wonder what gives?
Hopefully this means they'll come up with a decent lookin default female like they did with DA2, on the other hand I absolutely hated her voice in the game. To be fair Mark Meer has started to drive me nuts as well, but I think that is mostly because of Shepherd's *** smile.
