    I don't think you can interpret the words "Online multiplayer pass" in too many ways.

    I for one won't be using the multiplayer option,
    but there are probably a number of people who will.

    ...So does this mean we have to buy the online pass separately if we don't get the CE? That's retarded.

    this is just the contents of the CE, the regular would have the online pass otherwise people would just buy a used copy of the regular edition since a new copy wouldn't have the online pass which goes against the point of the online pass to lesson the loss of used sales

    You mean cross platform play or only the PS3 will have the multiplayer?

    I don't think any Xbox 360/PS3 games support cross platform play with each other, the PS3 only supports some cross platform play with the upcoming Vita and the Xbox has like one game (Shadowrun) that has cross platform play with GfWL.

    Yes. Now, if you'll excuse me...

    Meh, sounds interesting, but I won't pay for Xbox live for the sole purpose of playing Online mode, and I won't be begging to play my brother's PS3 anytime soon.

    I just hope they put the Singleplayer first and worry about the multiplayer later, even if I do somehow come across a free Gold account. That said, it's Bioware, so...

    Agreed. I think it could work well, the only issue I see is players having issues with their own story. It'd be real shit to help your friend with the game only to have some major plot point spoiled. Still, it'd be a nice feature. Each player takes controller of whatever squad member they choose, each squad member can choose their own dialogue and talk with the Shepard player on their decisions, and of course there's all the shooting.
