Bioware has confirmed that it's going to release Mass Effect 2 on the PS3 as a download via the Playstation Network on launch day.
When it arrives next week, players will have the choice between picking up the game physically in a store, or by just downloading a digital version direct from Sony. It's the first time a major third party release has ever launched as a PSN download on the same day as the disc version will be available in store.
EA have also unleashed a launch trailer, which while not as epic as the launch trailer released this time last year for the 360 and PC versions, is pretty damn cool. Check it out below. Mass Effect 2's out next Tuesday in the US and next Friday in Europe. We'll bring you a full review of the PS3 version around launch.
