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.
I hope that they include all of the previous DLC. I can understand if they do like they did with the PS3 release of ME2 and make them still pay for the Arrival, since it came out later, but they should at least include the other DLC packs.
Sweet I'm so happy I haven't bought 3 yet
Sweet! I was hoping to have the whole trilogy on one console at some point. Now I can make that happen on my PS3. I don't own any of them by the way, but I played the ME3 demo.
This sounds amazing, but the inclusion of DLC, or lack thereof, will determine whether or not I buy this.
Nice, glad that PS3 owners will finally get to play this great series in it's entirety and make their own choices.
a pretty awsome collection for ps3, everything in one package and you dont even have to look for them separately. the price is also very nice
Do we get ALL the dlc? Actually, the better question is do we get ANY dlc? If not, I'd rather go on Ebay,Amazon, or Craigslist and buy everything seperate for a much cheaper price.
Was gonna borrow Mass Effect 2 from my dad just for the trophies. This changes everything!
I'm so glad I waited to get ME3. Now I'll have all 3 in one package. This is great because so many people haven't even played ME. Definitely picking this up. Never thought I'd say this but thank you EA, you guys really are turning things around.
Fantastic, totally going to buy this day one, even though I already have 2 and 3. Best news ever.
