I don't know why, but I'm tempted to buy this just to have it. Does it come with the dlc?

I need to know this as well especially for the PS3 version.

Good to see that Playstation owners finally get a chance to play the best game (in my opinion) of the Mass Effect series.

#5 Posted by Vonocourt (2139 posts) -

So does that mean Mass Effect 1 is actually going to be available on the PS3?

#6 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

No wii u version is hilarious. Also since ps3 version is coming later I guess ms had a times exclusive.

#7 Posted by RE_Player1 (7563 posts) -

@Vonocourt: Yup.

@BigDaddy81: I agree. I played the first on PC and the rest on PS3 and hands down the first one is the greatest.

Man, Mass Effect is cool.

Worst playing, but mechanically most interesting.

Even though I have all three collectors editions, I kind of want this.

#13 Edited by MarkWahlberg (4606 posts) -

Watch them not put any of the DLC on the discs, just to be dicks.

This is actually a really cool thing for them to do, but I can't say I really feel like spending that much money on stuff I already have. Although I have yet to buy ME3, so... hmm...

No! You won't trick me, Mr. Marketing Man! I buy these games way after they come out for a reason!

I've been expecting you.

#15 Posted by Brodehouse (10066 posts) -

Tell you what, popping the dialogue and the maps from ME1 into the ME3 combat engine would be fucking fun.

#16 Posted by probablytuna (3724 posts) -

I don't know how EA managed to get Mass Effect on PS3, but kudos. (I'm assuming lots and lots of monies to Microsoft)

#17 Posted by mordukai (7157 posts) -

About damn time. I wonder if the term MS gave EA about the first Mass Effect was that it can't come out for the PS3 after all three games were out. If so smart on them.

Even though I played all three games I kinda want this pack but only for the sake of having it. Might pick it up down the road when it's $20.

hmmm, i didn't think the loot system or RPG 'point' system added anything to the experiance and was pleased they stripped it out.

putting 1 point into this and 1 point into that never really seemed to make any difference.

still a fantastic game though... but i think all 3 are.

I'd buy the collection if they did this. The gameplay mechanics (at least the combat) in ME1 feel very dated now, to say the least.

I wouldn't mind buying this, just to own them all on the PC. But after ME3, I really have no desire to revisit the series.

Will Mass Effect 1 run even shittier on the PS3?

#22 Posted by LiquidPrince (16003 posts) -

Wait does the PS3 get the 1st game as well?

#23 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

Can I just buy Mass Effect 1?... 60$!? hey that's pretty cool deal even though I already have ME2 and ME3 I might just buy this just to be able to play ME1 on PS3 I want that sooo bad.

According to Joystiq, Mass Effect 1 will be released on PSN.

#25 Posted by believer258 (11979 posts) -

Cool. I just built my PC and would like to get a fair number of my 360 games on it, so despite already owning all three I'll pick this up at some point. Not at launch, no, but I'll get it.

#26 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

This is pretty cool.

So I already have Mass Effect 2 and 3 for my PS3, can I get the first one separately?

I have been waiting for this for a long, long time.

Fuck yeah I'm buying it now. Well, pre-ordering. If they even take pre-orders yet.

I'm having the same feelings. Curse my love of nicely packaged collections.

That' pretty awesome I would like to know if ME2 and ME3 have the DLC so far released if not then buying ME1 from the store seems like the thing to do ... or wait until the trilogy gets cheaper options!

Yes, 1 will be available on PSN (probably no separate disc release).

If they remade 1 in the 2/3 engine I could see myself replaying it.

#35 Posted by Zleunamme (681 posts) -

I'm excited for this. I only want to buy the first Mass Effect since I already have two and three. I wonder if the carryover save stuff will or has been fixed. The trilogy announcement didn't say if it will include previously released DLC. But needed to tell people multiples times about the over 75 hours of game play, winning 300 awards and the premium foil box! I'm not sure how I feel about the WiiU owners who have to pay $60 for ME3 alone and it comes out the week after the trilogy.

at last mass effect 1 for the ps3!

#37 Posted by jaycrockett (467 posts) -

75 hours of content? I played Mass Effect 1 more than that. I'm guessing they aren't including DLC.

Because PS3 owners were missing out on the stupid inventory system coupled with a cumbersome upgrade system, collect quests that went no where, and driving the Mako that handled like your grandfather's station wagon through an absurd obsticle course?

#39 Posted by falserelic (5460 posts) -

I probably will checkout the collection I never got a chance to play ME3. But after hearing the incredible amount of Backlash about the ending. I wasn't to excited to play the game right away. Knowing that everything you do in the game is pointless. The fans mind's filled with so much sorrow that day.

sure it had a few flaws. but one the whole its a fantastic game

#41 Posted by mosespippy (4278 posts) -

I love when games are announced as trillogies. It means I can ignore them until the publisher puts out the compilation of all three. Been expecting this pack for quite some time now. I was also expecting an Assassin's Creed one until they milked out two extra AC2 games.

Putting quality aside, you really think the first game in a franchise about making choices and being the same character for a 3 game arc isn't important?

there maybe flaws regarding the 1st game (as with with all other video games) but what i want to mostly experience from ME1 is playing the game and the story from the beginning, not from the sequel besides other things...

#44 Posted by Veektarius (4920 posts) -

Handsome packaging, but I'm too thrifty for this.

#45 Posted by MetalGearSunny (6997 posts) -

Bah. I want this so bad, it looks so cool.

#46 Posted by Thanatos3 (84 posts) -

@Hizang: You probably already know but ME 1 will be on psn for only 14.99. Odd considering ME 2 was 60 dollars for almost 4 months a year after it was on 360. Sounds like a good deal. But i think i will sell my me 2 and 3 and get this pack. Mostly because i think the box art was always horrible.

#47 Posted by BBQBram (2256 posts) -

This couldn't have come at a more opportune time. I only recently borrowed ME2 from a friend and played it religiously, 100% inlcuding all DLC. I don't usually buy DLC for a game I don't even own yet so that's saying something. I was blown away by the game and, despite the backlash, can't wait to wrap it up with 3. I only own the first game so I'll gift that to a friend and get this collection. It doesn't hurt that the packaging is slick as fuck.

I have the first two games in the series and all the DLC for the latter, and I would buy this collection in a goddamn heartbeat if they did this. I don't know if I could contain my excitement if this happened, in fact. I mean, jesus, I'm pumped thinking about this purely hypothetical situation.

#49 Posted by Pinworm45 (4088 posts) -

My favourite part about the marketing is "has over 75 hours of content". I found that so interesting, how they must have debated for hours on what to put there.

"We need to make our games sound long, of course. With all the side missions, side quests, replayability.. shit, this package has THOUSANDS of hours!"

"whoa whoa whoa. The casual market is what we're after right now. They don't HAVE thousands of hours. If you just play the main story, it's about 15-20 each, let's call it 50 hours."

"50 hours? That's skimping it too much. Way too much"

#50 Edited by kindgineer (2767 posts) -

Just finished Mass Effect 3 about 10 hours ago so I'll pass on this. The ride from ME1-ME3 was absolutely amazing and will go down as one of my favourite and most emotionally invested experiences. I own all three games stand-alone, so I don't see much that I could benefit from picking this up.
