Wii U version of Mass Effect 3 features DLC and extended ending

Straight Right, the developer behind the upcoming Wii U port of Mass Effect 3 has announced that the package will include as standard additions, both the "From Ashes" DLC pack (that came with the Special Edition) as well as the Extended Cut DLC.

Both packs will now be included as natural additions to the story, and wont require additional downloading. From Ashes includes the new crew member Javik, while the Extended Cut DLC added a bit of extra content onto each of the game's potential endings (while igniting a firestorm of industry controversy of the limits of artistic independence.) 

Mass Effect 3 is due to launch alongside the Wii U on November 18, 2012, and will retail for the new Wii U standard of $59.99.

    Well, that's a good plus for anyone interested in the Wii U version. Then again... One could argue that really, the original ME3 game SHOULD HAVE come out with both of those things in the first place...

    I couldn't agree more. Games these days have too much DLC. I don't mind some, but when there is DLC on disc or available day one, something is wrong.

    I wouldn't mind, if they didn't charge full retail price. $60, and on day one you want me to spend another $10-20 to unlock some code on the disc I just spent $60 for? It's bullshit. If you want to sell me 85% of the game, charge me $85% of the price, dicks.And then they release a GOTY edition with all DLC for like $40! (looking at you Bethesda) This whole system is screwy.

    Solution: quit preordering or day 1 buy everything and wait for better deals. If everyone did this companies wouldn't nickel and dime every big release out there.
