Original Mass Effect arrives on PS3 in December

Mass Effect fans on the PlayStation 3 got good news earlier this year when Bioware announced that it would be bringing the original to the console. They have recently revealed that the game will arrive in early December, the 4th to be exact.

Ported over by Edge of Reality, the development team explains in a recent blog post that the game runs at or better than it did when originally launched on the Xbox 360.

On the subject of DLC for the trilogy, “The PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect Trilogy will have the original Mass Effect with Bring Down the Sky integrated into the game, both on-disc and on the PSN download. Mass Effect 2 will still have the same DLC on-disc that it was originally shipped with: Cerberus Network; Kasumi; Overlord; and Lair of the Shadow Broker. Finally, Mass Effect 3 will also be exactly as it originally shipped.

The Xbox 360 version will include all DLC that came with the original games – Cerberus Network with Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 remains unchanged as well. The PC is the same as Xbox 360, except both Bring Down the Sky and Pinnacle Station are available for free – just as they are for all PC players who purchases each standalone product today.

Xbox 360 and PC players looking to snag the whole set will see the trilogy come available on November 6th.
