PS3 gamers picking up the Mass Effect Trilogy or Mass Effect 1 on its own will be treated to a better version of the game than is available on Xbox 360, Mass Effect Trilogy external producer Ryan Warden has said.

"We partnered with Edge of Reality, an external team with whom we've worked on many previous projects," explained Warden on the PS Blog. "Edge of Reality has a deep understanding of how PS3 works, under the hood, so we thought the project would be a perfect fit. We had a huge head start because of the work we had done with Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 for PS3, but we still wanted to maintain the look and feel – the classic experience – of the original Mass Effect.

"We tinkered with the audio engine, and with the way that memory was allocated to various chunks of the game. We brought over some lighting and visual effects improvements from Mass Effect 2 and 3, and combined them with the original Mass Effect systems. In essence, we invited the Wu Tang Clan to a rap battle… and it paid off.

"We got some huge gains in performance – especially with regard to texture popping, which has been dramatically improved – yet we were still able to maintain the classic look and feel of the introduction to the Mass Effect universe."

The release of Mass Effect 1 also means players can create their own Shepard and bring that character through the rest of the trilogy.

"I'm really proud of the work that the team has done to bring Mass Effect Trilogy to the PS3, and I can't wait for you to play through the whole series. I hope you enjoy it!" concluded Warden.

The Mass Effect Trilogy arrives in stores tomorrow.

Am not buying again just a case of playing them. I may try some dlc tho as I didn't really buy any of it for 2 or 3 yet.

I'll be tempted to buy the whole lot when I see it in a Steam sale one day, but until then I can hold out I think

I'd be half interested in playing the trilogy again on WiiU, but the controller implementations would need to be very good. When I play the series again it will be on PC because I already have all the achievements for the other ones... except multiplayer stuff for ME3 which I should probably get around to sometime.

I've only played Mass Effect 2 (PS3) and absolutely loved it. Even if it did have a crappy ending. I wasn't really too interested in Mass Effect 3 and after all the fanboy whining about the ending I was even less interested. But, I'm very tempted to buy this and go through the series. Does anybody know if the DLC packs are included? Some of the DLC that came included on the PS3 ME2 disc was great!

Will be interesting to see if Bioware will bring over ME1 & ME2 on the Wii U. If ME3 can be done surely the previous instalments can too.
