Save Transfer

Do I need my Mass Effect 1 save file for ME3 or can I just delete it. ?
Cause I'm pretty sure all my decision transfered to my ME2 save file.

Why do you want to delete it? You that strapped for room on your hard drive that you can't get rid of anything else?

I would keep it just in case.

@MooseyMcMan: Yes.

@Vito_Raliffe: Well...I guess I'll keep it then. I just have to delete something else. 
 
Thanks.

@DjCmeP: I'm not sure what your hard drive situation is or how big it is, but I would recommend uninstalling games, deleting arcade games or DLC that you no longer have any use for, videos etc. You can always re-install/re-download something if you need to. Or you could backup your save files on a USB stick/external hard drive. I have found that save files aren't big enough to warrant deleting them, and you never know for sure when developers will use them (like Lost Planet 2 using Dead Rising 1 save files, for example).

@DjCmeP: ME1 saves only take up a few KB each, so you're not really gaining a whole lot.

The ME1 save file stored surprisingly much stuff and I'm not sure how much of that was transfered into the ME2 save file.
I would say keep it just to be safe.

ME files only take up a couple hundred KBs per save, there is nothing you will gain by erasing those save files.

Hmmn. That's an interesting question. Seems like it'd only really make sense for them to have to import your ME2 save, but I'd keep your old one just in case.
