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.

60 bucks? smh
congratulations to ps3 players who get to enjoy the best game in the series for the first time.
I called this (to my friends, not on GIO) 3 years ago.
never played Mass Effect, maybe this'll be a good opportunity...
what about a graphics/engine update for me1?
Check out Mass Effect's website for new details on what's included.
Hmm. I like the idea of the trilogy set. But I own all 3, so buying this is a waste of money. Better sweeten the deal EA. Otherwise your greedy hands won't be holding my cash... I'm waiting.
Does anyone know whether it includes the Dlcs from ME1 & 2
Well, I already own every collectors/limited edition of this series on the 360. I do own ME2 on the PS3, so I may buy this collection for the 360, PS3, or PC.
I could also just buy it for all 3 platforms, and if the WiiU gets one, the I'll also buy it for that too. I just can't resist anything Mass Effect.
The biggest deal breaker will be the DLC. If all the DLC is not included, then I will not buy any of them.
Yes! This is what I've been dreaming about!
Will there be new achievements associated with this version?
