Pre-Order Mass Effect 3 On PSN, Dowload It On Launch Day
The digital world beckons...
Mass Effect 3 is undoubtedly one of the biggest releases of 2012, and it'll be in stores on March 6. But you know, there's one other place to purchase BioWare's hotly anticipated RPG: the PlayStation Network.
Sony has confirmed that ME3 will be available to download on the PSN on the same day the physical copies arrive at brick-and-mortar retailers. The only catch is that you have to pre-order via the PSN, which you can do right now. In addition, those who pre-order the digital version will get the M55 Argus rifle as a bonus; it's a "close-range weapon that uses bursts of fire to ensure ammunition conservation." You'll nab a nifty ME3 PS3 theme, too.
Bear in mind that this offer pertains exclusively to the launch of Mass Effect 3, so you have to strike before March 6. The interesting question is this: how many are willing to take up a giant chunk of their hard drive to put this big ol' game on it? I'm also willing to bet I could get to GameStop and come back before you're down downloading it... Yeah, sorry, still a big proponent of physical copies.
