It's obvious the reason Mass Effect Trilogy is delayed on PS3. The issue is ME2 on PS3 originally gets all the DLC except the final DLC. If PS3 Mass Effect Trilogy still get the same DLCs, then PS3 version becomes a great deal compared to the other versions. When you market a new "version" for multi platforms, you have to keep the included contents/DLCs very close to all versions or it causes the value to become different on each platform. I know PS3 fanboys don't care but EA marketing has to care.
It actually sounds like some DLC for ME1 and ME2 will be included on 360 and PC, though it's not clear that ME1 DLC for 360 will be included as a free download, and I would hope the PS3 will at least get what the PC version gets, though that's still TBA according to Bioware
