For the first time ever a Mass Effect game will be launching on another console other than one supported by Microsoft. EA announced that Mass Effect 3 will be released on not only the Xbox 360 and PC, but also the PlayStation 3 as well during the 2011 holiday season. This means that the final chapter of the trilogy will be available for practically everyone as long as they have one of those systems.
This is a far different situation from what happened with Mass Effect 2, as that game is just now going to be seeing a release on the PS3 January 18th. This is of course good news because the franchise can be enjoyed by even more people now thanks to the multiplatform release.
