Mass Effect Easter Egg Discovered in Amazon's Echo Devices

This is pretty cool.


It has been discovered that Amazon's line of AI devices contain at least one Mass Effect Easter egg.

People on Reddit (via Eurogamer) discovered that when you ask the Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, "Does this unit have a soul?" it responds by saying, "Keelah se'lai, my friend." This is a reference to what the Geth character Legion asks its creator in Mass Effect 3.

Twitter user TheAlbionGirl, who formerly worked at Lionhead, Codemasters, and EA, posted a video today of her posing the question and receiving the response; listen for yourself in the video below:

Amazon's Echo and Echo Dot are Siri-like devices that let you use voice commands to control all manner of things and queue up music.

The next Mass Effect game is Andromeda, which comes out on March 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In the past week, it's been confirmed that the game will support HDR on all platforms and won't have a Season Pass. We also learned that pre-loading starts on PC on March 17 and that the game's PC system requirements may be revealed in February.
