In an epic blog post worthy of the Pulitzer Prize, developer BioWare has confirmed that the Mass Effect Trilogy will take flight on 4th December in North America and 7th December in Europe. That means that the first title in the series – which originally launched as a Microsoft published Xbox 360 exclusive way back in 2007 – will finally be playable on the PlayStation 3.

You’ll be able to purchase all three titles together at retail, or individually from the PlayStation Store. The original game will ship with the Bring Down the Sky add-on automatically included, though there’s no word on Pinnacle Station. Meanwhile, Mass Effect 2 will come with the Kasumi, Overlord and Lair of the Shadow Broker expansions. Unsurprisingly, you’ll need to splash out in order to secure Mass Effect 3’s DLC.

You can learn a little more about the port of the original game over on the BioWare Blog. It's an interesting read – assuming you've got a week or two to spare.
