Mass Effect Weekend Sales (2/14-2/19)

GamersGate is offering an "up to 75%" off sale (newer titles still 50% off) on digital downloads of Mass Effect games. Origin similarly has the Mass Effect Trilogy discounted (50% off). As well, EA Mobile has dropped Mass Effect: Infiltrator pricing for the iOS by 80% (again) for Valentine's Day, but as usual, there's no love for Android owners. Discount deets after the break.

Best Bet

Get the individual Mass Effect titles piecemeal. The trilogy bundle contents for PC digital download leaves much to be desired - and you actually end up paying more while getting less without the satisfaction of owning a physical product with physical extras. Notably, Mass Effect 3 Digital Deluxe Edition's list price at GamersGate is $10 lower than on Origin, so it ends up being cheaper at the same discount percentage.

Even if you pick up all the Digital Deluxe editions, it is still more cost effective (you can buy the Pinnacle Station DLC separately for $5, or wait for a sale on it):
