EA's Q4 2011 earnings conference call is currently coming to a close, and eavesdropping members of the Twitterverse are reporting that Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3 will be getting handheld versions

Obviously it wont be the same Console version. More like the BFBC2, Dead Space ports for iOS.

I could see mass effect working something like galaxy on fire 2, flying around the galaxy talking to people.

Hopefully DICE learns from BFBC2 for the iOS. I can already tell that there's a better chance of the older generation to get left behind than not. Just hope the new generation comes out Q4 this year or early Q1 in 2012.

Still a long wait even if true: Mass Effect 3 just got pushed to Q1 2012.

It depends. I'd rather that instead of them releasing a cut down summary version alongside the console and PC versions, that they release a dedicated made for mobile version filling in part of the story gap between ME2 and ME3. Mass Effect Galaxy had the right idea even if its execution was lacking. For example, we know that Earth is being attacked and waiting on Sheppard to come save the day. There is obviously a lot of room to tell a good relevant story about the struggles the Earth resistance is undergoing before Sheppard arrives.
