Mass Effect 3 on PSN Day One
This is pretty standard over on PC, but it's not often done on consoles. Now, a major, AAA flagship game is getting it: simultaneous digital release on consoles along with the retail copy. Mass Effect 3 can be bought on PSN for PS3 and it will be available to play on launch day, March 6th. There are a lot of reasons why this has been such a long time coming (most have to do with brick-and-mortar retailers refusing to give Sony, MS, Nintendo and the like not getting shelf space in stores unless the games can realistically be sold there too), but I can't complain much. End result is we're finally seeing games on all platforms available either on disc or as digital download right from launch day.
