Just a heads up to those of you choosing to purchase Mass Effect 3 digitally, the game isn’t available yet — even in the Eastern time zone. The reasoning is that a staggered release wasn’t possible, and the game will be available for everyone to download starting at 12:01am PST. Those of you out West should be able to start the transfer, go to bed, and wake up to a finished download, but those of you out East may have to adjust your plans.
Other than that, everything else is as expected. If you had a digital pre-order on PSN for example, you’ll still get your bonus weapon and exclusive PS3 theme as promised.
