This isn’t the first time that we have seen something like this and I am pretty sure that it isn’t the last.

EA is making its move to try and entice gamers into buying brand new copies of games rather than buying them second hand (which EA sees no money for). While this does, of course work as a method to prevent gamers from pirating the game, they seem very concerned over the ever popular second hand market, which in the end, means the same thing to the publisher at the end of the day.

So to get you to buy new instead of second hand, EA have thrown in some nifty extras, including a new character. Hit the link below to find out what you will be getting when you buy it with the plastic wrapping intact.

  • New missions
  • Extra in-game items
  • A new mercenary-type character “Zaeed” include in the extra missions
  • Cerberus Network unlock code (update system for news, dlc availability etc.
  • Extras should still be available at a cost

Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me, considering that so many people were going to get the game new anyways, so bargain for them then.

There has also been an announcement of some DLC that will be available not too long after release such as a new vehicle, some new armor, weapons, missions and so on.

The big question of course, is whether or not us poor South Africans will be eligible for the additional content. I have contacted EA for comment on the matter and will hit you guys back with the information as soon as I get a response.

For now, I’m just going to continue being psyched for Mass Effect 2’s imminent release.
