The vault sports Shepard's chest armor, complete with light up N7 logo, and the requisite controller cradle (what, no sweet ray gun?). Like other vaults, the unit is purported to actually improve airflow by lifting the console off the ground. The vault will be available in the UK starting March 9 for both the Xbox 360 and PS3, commanding a price of £70. The press release makes no mention of the North American release, though GameStop currently lists both versions for a March 1 release at $90.
Update: It seems our subconscious desire for BioWare to create a FireFly game led to the use of the word "Reavers" in the original headline. The mistake has been fixed, though our hearts remain hopeful.
London, 8 February 2012: Calibur11 and EA are pleased to announced their collaboration for the release of the Mass Effect™3 Vault, with the creation of this collector's edition, available on 9th March for both the Xbox 360© and PlayStation 3© slim.
This Collector's Edition Mass Effects™3 Vault armours up your console to show Commander Shepard at his best.
