The extra DLC options for Mass Effect 3 pre-orders continue today with the announcement of Dark Horse’s “Art of the Mass Effect Universe” book. If you pre-order the art collection through Barnes and Noble, you’ll receive download code for character boosters and a Collector Assault Rifle for multiplayer. Here’s the word on the rifle: “The Collector Assault Rifle uses the same principles as a human assault rifle, but its organic components clearly set it apart. Its power source appears to be an internal organ with biotic capacitance; its ammunition resembles pellets of metallic enamel that strip shields off enemies with deadly efficiency.” So, there you have it. Mass Effect 3 is out in March.

NCsoft MMO Aion now has more than 300,000 activated pre-orders ahead of its western launch later this month, Euro MD Véronique Lallier told VG247 yesterday.
“Aion’s starting to achieve nice numbers,” said the boss. “We are over 300,000 activated pre-orders in the West.
“It’s looking healthy. It’s nice and healthy two weeks before the launch… It looks very good at the moment.”
Aion project lead Christian-Peter Heimbach added that the game’s real western test will come post-launch.
“We have a strong belief in the game,” he said. “We know the quality… and we also have hard numbers, as Vero already confirmed. We’re happy to say that we’re really confident.
“The next thing to prove, of course, is that we can keep this up. I think there’s a solid audience out there eager to play a new MMO, so I think we’re on a good path.”
Aion releases on September 22 in the US and September 25 in Europe.

Gamestop boss Bob McKenzie has told VentureBeat that DSi pre-orders are significantly higher than they were for the first DS.
“We’ve seen some pretty brisk pre-orders on DSi,” he said.
“It’s probably double where we were on the original DS, as far as reservation activity, so we’re expecting some great things from that.”
We’ve already written the headline, “New Nintendo hardware in record debut shock”.
The revamped handheld goes on sale in the US on April 5, and on April 3 in Europe.

Just how many pre-orders has Killzone 2 received in North America? SCEA isn’t saying.
When news of Euro Killzone 2 pre-orders surpassing 1.1 million reached us last Thursday, we were curious as to what the North America equivalent was.
No dice, unfortunately. Sony told us earlier this afternoon that the company doesn’t “provide pre-sales numbers for North America”.
Killzone 2′s been a main event in Europe in the past week, with a well-received demo and stream of reviews keeping the game at the top of the hot list.
You’re missing a trick, SCEA. Just think of the headlines.
The game’s out on the February 27.

Seems the previous report saying GT5 Prologue pre-orders had hit 1 million in Europe was a bit off. A SCEE rep just got back to us saying they’d “been checking this information internally and can confirm that we currently have orders for almost 1 million units of GT5 Prologue across SCEE territories.”
That includes Australia and New Zealand. So the racer’s not the first game to go platinum before release as previously thought. Just to clear that up.

According to this, more than a million people have pre-ordered GT5 Prologue in Europe, making it the first PS3 game to achieve platinum title status before launch. We’re just after some clarification from Sony on this. GT5 Prologue releases in Europe on March 28.
