Two new trilogy game sets are making their way to Sony’s PS3 this November. First up we have the Mass Effect trilogy. Mass Effect 2 and 3 were both released on the PS3 but, the original Mass Effect game that started it all off was an Xbox 360 exclusive and as of yet has not been made available to PS3 owners. Come November 7th however, you will now be able to finally play the first Mass Effect game. As well as making the game available in this trilogy box set, the game will also go up on the PlayStation Network for download. The launch coincides with the first annual “N7 Day”, which is a worldwide celebration for the Mass Effect franchise. Will you be celebrating N7 Day on November 7th by playing the first Mass Effect game?

UK Supermarket Morrisons have reduced the price of the Sony PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 in a bid to clear out excess stock left over from Christmas.
The offer allegedly runs for three weeks or until stock runs out which is quite likely to be far less than three weeks. The sale prices are listed below:
PS3 slim 160GB – £150
PS3 250GB with Karate Kid Blu-Ray – £200
Wii – £85
Wii Mario Kart bundle – £85
Xbox 360 4GB + Kinect £185
Xbox 360 250GB £150
To avoid disappointment, it’s best to ring your local store to see if they have any consoles left in stock.
