Mass Effect Trilogy PlayStation 3 Version Dated and Detailed

In a post on their official blog, the folks at BioWare have announced the release dates for the PS3 version of the Mass Effect Trilogy bundle: December 4th in North America and December 7th in Europe. They also clarify what DLC will be included with the bundle and, from the looks of it, this will be the version to go to in terms of content available.

Here's a snippet on the contents and release dates of the various versions of the bundle:
We have since passed the game on to manufacturing. I'm happy to announce that on December 4, 2012 PlayStation 3 owners will be able to play the original Mass Effect for the first time, either by getting the Mass Effect Trilogy in stores or downloading Mass Effect as a standalone title through the PlayStation Network. It's a really special moment for me and everyone involved and we can't wait for you to play the game. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope that you get the same chill down your spine that I still do when the credits begin to roll.

Before I go, I wanted to address another question we have been seeing a lot of about DLC and how that's weaved into each edition of the Mass Effect 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.

Mass Effect Trilogy was a great opportunity to provide value for people who had always wanted to get into the Mass Effect series, but didn't know where to begin. The late nights in the office, the countless emails and cups of coffee were all worth it because now you or one of your friends can experience all three Mass Effect titles for the price of a single game on Xbox 360 and PC on November 6th (November 9th in Europe), and on PS3 on December 4th (December 7th in Europe).
