If you never played the original Mass Effect, but don’t have a PS3 to experience the once-exclusive interactive comic in Mass Effect 2, you can now download it on Xbox Live Arcade. This was a comic included in the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 to bring players up to speed on the story and allow them to make the important character choices in the first game, as BioWare couldn’t port the original game to the PS3.
For 320 MS Points you can now download it on the Xbox 360 if you want to play Mass Effect 2 with story decisions from the first game without having to play through it. The first Mass Effect was a great game with some clunky mechanics (the inventory screen is a nightmare), but the story was its strong part. With this interactive comic you can get the story and have your decisions affect your Mass Effect 2 (and eventually Mass Effect 3) play through.
