Bioware has announced via the US PS Blog that Mass Effect 3 is available for digital pre-order through PlayStation Network. Once the store update goes live, folks who pre-order will receive the M55 Argus rifle to as a thank you for the purchase. The rifle is high-powered, and shoots off “bursts of fire” which is handy for in situations calling for “intimidation” and/or suppression. Players will also receive a Mass Effect 3 PS3 theme only through this offer – meaning once the game launches, these goodies will no longer be available.
Mass Effect 3 launches on March 6 in the US and March 9 in the UK for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
