Hey all, I am very excited for the new mass effect 3 demo as I hope most of you are. Im wondering though, will anything in the demo being transfered over to the main game (multi-player level? or maybe some kind of small dialog choices??) The reason I ask is because my xbox 360, an ORIGINAL xbox 360, the 360 that contains my entire of Sheppard from the very beginning, is getting very old at this point. I have already got the RROD on it but I was able to fix this simply by replacing the old thermal paste that had melted over the graphics and processing chips. Needless to say, my xbox has seen its better days for sure and Im wondering if I should just play the demo on the ps3 to save precious time for ME3 on the 360, I imagine this will most likely be the last game I play on it....thanks.
DEMO - Will anything transfer to full game?
I think they stated that nothing will be imported or transferred from or to the demo.
Though Bioware have stated that you should hang on to your Mass Effect 3 saves, whether they have plans to have that interact with future Mass Effect games or DLC or anything else really, is still anyones guess.
Backing up your mass effect saves is actually not possible. You can move them from one storage device to another but you can't make a copy of them.
back up your saves
There was quite a lot of annoyed people talking about this on the BioWare forums because people are, quite reasonably, worried that these save games they've been holding onto since the beginning of ME1 5 years ago might be lost if their hard drive fails or their xbox gets stolen, etc.
Apparently it's something to do with how BioWare designed the save system to make saving the game much faster.
Fortunately, I recently bought an xbox slim to replace my 5 year old elite and transferred everything over to a fresh hard drive so I have nothing to worry about.
