It will cost you around $870 to get Mass Effect 3's DLC

I was doing some thinking this morning. If you add up all of the toys, artbooks, deluxe/pre-order editions, and everything else that nets you Mass Effect 3 in-game content, how much would the full price of entry be? Well, if you buy everything there is to buy (including pre-paying for unlocks), you will spend around the neighborhood of $870. Keep in mind that a lot of this is based on Razor accessories, which power up your "Collector Assault Rifle" to maximum power in multiplayer.

Regardless, if you look at the list I've provided below, the game still might be the running for "most expensive DLC ever" -- except of course for Railworks 3: Train Simulator 2012, which has $1679 worth of DLC. If anything else, I have to commend EA/Bioware's ability to tie-in so many different business deals with so many different companies. Of course, most of this is optional, but no doubt some gamers will defend it regardless. Ladies and gentlemen -- VIDEO GAMES.
