Mass Effect Demo for Valentine's

The BioWare Blog has word to expect a playable demo for Mass Effect 3 on February 14th, offering the chance to sample the upcoming RPG sequel. Here's the deal: "The demo will be available on PC, Xbox, PS3 beginning February 14, 2012. You will be playing through the opening level “Earth” which is under attack by those nasty Reapers. This version of the demo will also introduce the Mass Effect 3 co-op multiplayer mode and for the Xbox 360 players out there – Kinect functionality. Fans will be able to access tons of customization options and get enough of a peek at the story that you will be inclined to play it over and over to catch all the nuances." They also offer a FAQ with system requirements, word on early access to the multiplayer portion of the demo, and how to qualify:

What content will be included in the Mass Effect 3 demo?

There are two sections in the Mass Effect 3 demo, both included as part of a single download: The single player section includes 2 areas: the opening level featuring the Reaper attack on Earth, and a level further into the game where Shepard travels to an alien home world to seek their assistance in the war effort. This will be approximately 1 to 2 hours of content.The co-op multiplayer section includes 2 maps: Slum and Noveria. This section will be open to players who have qualified for the early multiplayer access as of Feb 14, and will then open up to all players on Feb 17.

How do I qualify to play the co-op multiplayer section before Feb 17?

The early access program for the demo’s multiplayer section begins on Feb 14, 2012To gain access to multiplayer in the demo any time between Feb 14 and when it opens up for everyone on Feb 17, a player must have met one of the following criteria: Own Battlefield 3 and have activated BF3’s Online Pass. Logging into the demo using the EA Origin Account linked to that Online Pass will automatically unlock the multiplayer section of the demo. Note that you do not have to enter a code anywhere – if you have activated your BF3 online pass, the multiplayer section of the demo will be unlocked for you when the demo goes live. Participate in an early access program that will be announced on Feb 7, 2012 – watch this site for more details.

I love people who will buy ME3 but just not with Origin even tho you still have to use it to play and your still supporting this pathetic service and company.

Damned hypocrites.

The real hypocrites are the ones that would buy this on Steam excitedly, because Valve DRM is somehow different than EA DRM.
