The Mass Effect Trilogy, which includes a new-for-PS3 port of the first game in the series, will be available on PlayStation 3 on December 4th, BioWare has announced. The compilation will be available at both retail and on PlayStation Network; the original game can be downloaded as a standalone game on PSN as well.

Edge of Reality will be handling the PS3 port of the original Mass Effect game. And although the original engine didn't support PS3, BioWare says the PS3 version "runs pretty damn well." We'll put that statement to the test in December.

The PS3 version of Mass Effect will include the Bring Down the Sky DLC integrated into the game. However, it appears Pinnacle Station will be a premium add-on. Both Mass Effect 2 and 3 will include whatever DLC was included in their original retail releases.

        If I can be honest, I tried playing the first Mass Effect several times over and failed to complete it every single time.

        I saw a video of the second Mass effect 2 opening, with the exploding ship etc.. I thought that looked fucking awesome so I went out and purchased it. I actually finished the game and mildly enjoyed it. Having said that, the opening sequence in that game was probably the best part IMO so I guess you could say the rest of the game was disappointing. I've still not played ME3, but I've noticed it's only like $20 now so I'll probably pick 'er up eventually.

        I don't know where i'm going with this.

          Hehe, funny how taste can be so different. I began the series with ME2 and loved it, then played ME1 which I almost liked better - but I'm not sure I'd liked ME1 as much if I hadn't played ME2 before it.

          ME3 was quite a disappointment for me. The game as a whole is great, and there are some memorable choices you can make but on the whole it felt dumbed down.
