One of the biggest titles of the new year will be downloadable on the PlayStation 3 day-and-date with its retail launch.
According to Sony, Mass Effect 3 will be available digitally at launch to anyone who preorders the title via the PlayStation Network. Gamers will be able to do so from today on the PlayStation Store.
Sony also revealed anyone who preorders the digital version of the game will receive the M55 Argus rifle, a close-range weapon that uses bursts of fire to ensure ammunition conservation, as well as a special Mass Effect 3 PS3 theme, which will only be available for digital preorders.
Sony's offer will not be available after the launch of the game.
Developed by BioWare, Mass Effect 3 is the final entry in the Mass Effect 3 trilogy but not necessarily the last title set in the game's universe.
The game will be out on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on March 6. For more on Mass Effect 3, check out GameSpot's latest hands-on preview.
