Mass Effect 3 CE Outed; “Better With Kinect”

Just when you thought Microsoft could at least keep hold of its last couple of E3 secrets, Amazon goes and spoils your fun.

The retailer has posted a listing for the Mass Effect 3 Collector’s Edition across PS3, PC and 360 – with the “Better with Kinect” branding adorning the latter’s box, in line with previous leaks.


According to the listing, the Collector’s Edition contains the following:

  • Premium metal case featuring commemorative artwork of Commander Shepard
  • 70-page hardbound art book featuring hundreds of unique and gorgeous illustrations from the BioWare development team plus an exclusive 4×6 lithographic print featuring a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork
  • Limited edition Mass Effect comic by Dark Horse Comics, complete with unique cover artwork
  • Join the ranks of the N7 with the premium fabric N7 patch
  • A full collection of in-game content that can’t be found anywhere else.

David Silverman, Bioware’s director of marketing, has also just tweeted: “Patiently sitting in the green room with a bunch of other companies waiting for our #msft press conference rehearsal to begin. #ME3” Expect to see Kinect support revealed at a live demonstration during Microsoft’s press conference in just under an hour.

  1. Right…well…sorry Microsoft lol

  2. Curious to see what Kinnect can bring to Mass Effect, voice commands for squad members maybe, but gestures etc would be a strange choice for this type of game.

    • Voice commands would be a logical feature for the Kinect version, since the information that voice commands were coming to the Kinect was leaked.

  3. Maybe it is just that the comic can be controlled with a hand swipe if it is a digital copy

  4. Let the MicroSoft brainwashing commence…maybe Milo is in it LoL

  5. You can look around the interior of the Normandy cock pit and cabin quarters using Kinect. For the rest of the game you need to use a pad.

  6. Whenever you see a character in-game using a screen it’s in a Kinect-stylee with their omni-tools, so they may be replicating that…?

  7. Well, might as well watch and see how it’s implemented but i don’t fancy using voice or gestures for ME.

  8. Lol. Thy were upset that we got it.

  9. Who, seriously, wants an N7 patch to sew onto their clothes? Seriously?!!??

  10. I will be getting the special edition for sure. Not that there is anything I really want in it, but it is the end of the trilogy I think the series deserves it. And I love steelbook cases.
