We’ve been hearing about this one for a while but haven’t managed to check...
Yesterday the US Playstation Blog revealed that those who pre-order the title over Playstation network will receive pre-order bonuses.
For taking out a digital pre-order you’ll get the M55 Argus rifle to aid you in-game, and you’ll get yourself an exclusive PS3 theme that is only available for those who pre-ordered the game. Once the game has released sony say that both items will not be made available for purchase later, so looks like its now or never.
The Argus rifle is apparently a ‘high-powered rifle and an excellent close-range weapon’. It works with burst fire so it wont burn though ammo and, according to the world of Mass Effect, ‘Law-enforcement agencies across the Mass Effect galaxy are adopting the Argus as their standard rifle, as much for its intimidation factor as its suppression power.’
Sounds interesting that you can pre-order via the Playstation Network, could it be a sign of things to come with other huge releases? Sony didn’t say if this was a US only incentive, but we’re imagining its worldwide.
