Mass Effect 1 going for 70+ dollars on Amazon?

What gives? This game is constantly being reprinted?

#2 Posted by Willin (1280 posts) -

Because Mass Effect 3 came out.

That's because it's the only good one.

Since EA bought Bioware a while ago I'd assume Microsoft stopped printing discs for the first Mass Effect since they were the ones to publish it. Getting a brand new copy might cost you but if I were you I'd just get the PC version or buy the 360 game used somewhere.

weird, they were just selling ME1 for $5 before ME3 came out.

Even if you didn't have a PC, isn't it on 360 On Demand?

Yup. The OP is probably just looking at some kind of "limited edition." The cost makes no sense.

.. you know there is a little kernel of truth to that. But parts of ME2 and ME3 were pretty good.

People putting things (in the new & used section) on amazon tend to get a little over hyper on the pricing for just about anything most of the time. Most of the Skylanders stuff is still double (or more) price on amazon thanks to these idiots.

2 and 3 certainly do alot of stuff better than 1 but the story in 1 is probably better.(ME1 is my personal fave of the three of em) So yeah yall aren't 100% wrong.

I saw that today and was like WTF!

#20 Posted by Gnomicidal (92 posts) -

The on demand option is honestly one I didn't consider. Thank you for that.

For those suggesting PC, I already have it on PC. Was looking to get an Xbox copy.

'Tis showing $20 for me for 360 right now. Probably a good time to buy if you need it.

the gameplay is much better in 2 and 3 and thats what mattered to me the most. i love all 3 though in all fairness

Got it today on Games on Demand. Probably better anyway since I don't have to switch out my MW3 disc for when I want to dive into some multi with friends.

Thanks guys.
