In the Los Angeles area, there are plenty of places to buy games and one game sure to sell well is next month’s Mass Effect 3, the conclusion to the critically acclaimed series. For those afraid of getting pepper sprayed at your local Walmart or hassled about trading in your games at Gamestop, Jessica Merizan the community manager for Bioware announced today that Mass Effect 3 would be available for download on the Playstation Network on 3/6, in North America.
“Our development team worked hard to ensure that Mass Effect 3 is available at the same time for PS3 as it is for other platforms, a development milestone we’re happy to celebrate with the PlayStation community!”
“Today, I want to let you know about an exclusive offer for anyone who pre-orders Mass Effect 3 via the Playstation Network. When the PlayStation Store updates later this afternoon, you’ll be able to pre-order to download a digital copy of the game and receive the M55 Argus rifle to complement your in-game experience.”
The Argus is a high-powered rifle and an excellent close-range weapon. Its bursts of fire ensure ammunition conservation during lengthy conflicts. Law-enforcement agencies across the Mass Effect galaxy are adopting the Argus as their standard rifle, as much for its intimidation factor as its suppression power.
Along with that in-game bonus weapon, Sony Computer Entertainment America and BioWare is a special Mass Effect 3 PS3 theme—only available for digital pre-orders. Once the game has launched, these offers will no longer be available. While there are many pre-order bonuses available at various retailers, this is the only offer that allows to you to play the game without ever leaving your house.
