Mass Effect Trilogy This Holiday

Get ready for the Mass Effect Trilogy, which is slated to arrive during the Holiday season for Windows PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

Happily, this means that PS3 owners will finally be able to experience BioWare's entire saga.

Those who buy the bundle, can expect the following:

  • Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3
  • Over 75 hours of story content, plus Mass Effect 3's online co-op multiplayer
  • Create and customize your own character with his or her appearance and skills, then play your Commander Shepard through all three Mass Effect games.
  • Experience an amazingly rich and detailed universe where your decisions have profound consequences on the action and the outcome.
  • Build a personalized arsenal with powerful weapons complete with their own upgrades and modifications
  • Unleash devastating abilities and skills as you command and train an elite squad.

The news arrived via the BioWare Blog.

Vader, do you know if Bioware will remove the activation limit on Mass Effect 1? Because if they will do that, I will buy this pack in one second.

I'm so sick of dealing with the activations on ME. Every time I change a part in my PC, I have to run the "remove activation" tool so ME doesn't use another activation!

One question EVERYONE (from Bioware Social Network, Steam Forums) Does this include all the dlc also? Here, and everywhere else) is asking, and the silence from EAWare is deafening.

My guess is none. EA did not put out a complete edition of Dragon Age 2 as well and I doubt they will do the same for Mass Effect when they a) already have more DLC coming and b) can charge people potentially another $20+ per game..

My understanding is that none of the DLC is in this pack. While I'd say only Lair of the Shadowbroker is worthwhile, it's still a shitty deal for a boxed set.
  Vader: I guess. I dunno. I think. I dunno.

Seems rather absurd and a bit of a kick in the teeth to release this just 6 months after the flagship ME3 was released,sounds like sales figures for ME3 were not what EA were expecting so need to push it along.

First of all, 'holidays' doesn't mean September, man. The gap will be more like 8 or 9 months.

Second of all, anyone actually surprised at a better deal coming out for a game 6 months after release deserves that 'kick in the teeth'. This is par for the course, and I get tired of seeing people complain about it as if its a surprise every time. The majority of single-player-focused games see significant price reduction 6 months later... or even less, if the sales are bad (e.g. it's amusing how quickly Rage's price dropped within 3 months). It's only multiplayer-focused games that retain their original price-point long after release. ME3 technically has mp, but I'm sure no one plays it now.

As for sales, in May EA claimed ME3 has grossed them over 200 million USD, so I doubt they're disappointed with sales to this point. Nah, they're just getting every cent they can. They're merchants, it's what they do.

Maybe I'll buy this than buying ME3 only.
