The lights are on
EA said today the original Mass Effect is coming to PlayStation 3 as part of a new trilogy bundle that includes all three games from the series. The first Mass Effect was previously only released on PC and Xbox 360 since it was published by Microsoft.
The bundle is due out on November 6 for Xbox 360 and PC and "at a later date" for PlayStation 3 and costs $59.99, EA says. The first game is also being offered as a download through PlayStation Network and includes trophy support.
EA has not said whether or not the collection includes all previously released download content.

Here's a quick FAQ from EA:
When does the Mass Effect Trilogy release?
Mass Effect Trilogy releases on November 6 2012 for Xbox 360 and PC, and later in the year for PlayStation 3.
What does the Mass Effect Trilogy include?
Mass Effect Trilogy includes all three Mass Effect titles, featured in a new premium foil box featuring artwork of Commander Shepard.
Is the Mass Effect Trilogy compatible with other versions of Mass Effect, for example multiplayer?
Yes, the Mass Effect Trilogy will be compatible with other versions of Mass Effect. You will be able to play Mass Effect 3 multiplayer with other players.
Well EA, you just made yourself $60. Or however much it is when I finally get around to this series.
Dam it i have thme all on xbox that sucks well that wont stop me from buying it on ps3 though cant wait to get it. I love the box art to very nice.
I thought there were some legal issues surrounding Mass Effect 1 in regard to it being an Xbox exclusive. What happened to that?
i am going to be really pissed off if they don't have the DLC for ME1 along with it...
"Many decisions lie ahead, none of them matter"
Mass 2 was by far my favorite of em all.
This is fantastic news! I'm going through all of the games again! ^_^
I really hope this does come with all DLC. Otherwise I'm sure in another year they'll release the "complete" or "definitive" edition and charge everyone all over again.
How can you possibly dislike these games? It is your opinion but it's a horrible one. lol Anyways this is a big money gamble once again for EA but i cannot say i blame them. Luckily this is coming out at a great time for my wallet to say hell yes!
Wow, score! For the PS3 community!
So, will Mass Effect 2 for the PS3 collection have all the DLC that was included in the original PS3 release? I need some more answers here...
Great news for PS3 users!
I think that PS3 fans are going to be somewhat disappointed with ME1. It is a fantastic game that I will always love. However, it is so much different than ME2 and ME3. If they are expecting anything like 2/3, then they will be a little confused. Still, I am happy to hear that they will get a chance to play that awesome game. It is what started all of this in the first place.
What about DLC?
