Today is Valentine's Day, which means the Mass Effect 3 demo has arrived. PC and Xbox 360 users can go ahead and download it, while PS3 users will need to wait for the PS Store to update. Once you have installed the demo, you will get two hours of single player content and more than enough co-op multiplayer to keep you satisfied until the March 6th release date. The single player portion of the Mass Effect 3 demo includes two missions for you to play through, and if you want to avoid any spoilers for the main game, you may want to stick with the multiplayer. If you have purchased Battlefield 3, you can begin the co-op portion of the ME3 demo right away, while everyone else will have to wait until this Friday. It is a small price to pay, but something that was not entirely unexpected. Playing the Mass Effect 3 demo will also unlock some items for use in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, so there is an extra incentive for that.
The Mass Effect 3 demo clocks in at around 2GB, and PC users will need to grab it from Origin.
