The Mass Effect series has been revered as one of the great new IP’s of this generation since its inception several years ago. Luckily, it looks like its popularity has turned in to retail success as well. A NeoGAF user that has seen scans of the new PSM3 magazine is reporting that the entire Mass Effect series has topped 7 million units sold. That number might seem small at first but if you think about the fact that it was only available on PC and Xbox 360 up until this year, it starts to look a little more impressive. Especially when you consider that PC sales likely only made up only a small percentage of its overall numbers, and only the second title in the series was made available on the PS3; and it came almost a year late.
The third installment in the Mass Effect franchise launches later this year on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. If you would like to see how it’s coming along, you can check out the latest screens here.
