Back in September, Bioware and EA announced a special bundle for the highly acclaimed Mass Effect series – The Mass Effect Trilogy. All three Mass Effect games would be made available in one package for Xbox 360, PC, and even PS3. The Xbox 360 and PC version of the trilogy was set to be released on November 6, 2012. Unfortunately, because the original Mass Effect game was not on the PS3 prior, the PS3 version of the trilogy took a little bit longer to develop for and thus had no release date at the time of the announcement. However, that has now changed.
Bioware has revealed that the PlayStation 3 version of the Mass Effect Trilogy will be made available on December 4, 2012. If you have played ME 2 and 3 on the PS3 but missed out on the first game, you don’t have to repurchase all games again. The original Mass Effect will also be made available as a digital download on the same date, December 4, on the PlayStation Network.

DLC-wise, here are the details on what’s included in each version of the trilogy as described by external producer, Ryan Warden:
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 2and Mass Effect 3 remains unchanged as well. The PC is the same as Xbox 360, except both Bring Down the Skyand Pinnacle Station are available for free – just as they are for all PC players who purchases each standalone product today.
The Mass Effect Trilogy is set to be released on November 6, 2012 for Xbox 360 and PC and December 4, 2012 for PS3.
