Mass Effect Trilogy Gets a Trailer for Nov. 6 Release

The entire Mass Effect trilogy is coming in one big box set this week, and BioWare and Electronic Arts have put out a spiffy new launch trailer just in time.

You can check out the trailer below, which really isn’t anything special except that it combines shots from all three games and a lot of inspiring talk about how important Shepard is to humanity.

If you’re looking to grab the Mass Effect Trilogy on Playstation 3, you’re going to have to wait a little while, however. The release date for that version is Dec. 4; at that time, you’ll also have the option of just downloading the original Mass Effect from the Playstation Network, if you happen to own the latter two games. That way you’re not forced to rebuy two games you own to get the third you don’t.

Keep in mind also that the trilogy won’t include all the DLC that’s yet been released for the Mass Effect games, according to a blog post from BioWare. Each pack is a little different — on Xbox 360, sounds as if you won’t get any DLC except what was originally shipped with the games when they were first released. Same goes for Playstation 3 and PC, except that both had more DLC included with their packages over the years — the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2, for example, includes all DLC. None of the Mass Effect 3 DLC is included for any version.

What the hell is the point in all this if it doesn’t include the DLC-s?
Or will they create a Super Mega Mass Effect Trilogy Pack after all the DLC-s are out?

Why get this for the xbox 360 when you can buy the whole trilogy seperately for less money? They should have included all the dlc on disc, that would have almost been worth it.

Bioware: “We believe in the artistic vision of our team, even to the detriment of the trilogy”

EA: “We believe in the economic vision of nickle-and-diming our customers, even to the detriment of the company”

Moral of the story: What goes around, comes around; EA and Bioware will get theirs one day…
