    Original Mass Effect coming to PS3

    Seems like the PS3 finally gets the whole trilogy as part of a trilogy collection coming in November 6th. Initial release will be for 360 & PC with a PS3 port to follow. Glad I held off on ME3, hopefully it will come with ALL DLC for all games.

    Great news for ME fans on the Playstation. Interesting turn of events, considering Microsoft is the publisher for ME1. Maybe MS will get royalties from ME1 sales on PS3

    wondered when they'd release it, guess now the trilogy over they had time to port the original & make a trilogy boxset

    @Soldier 95B
    EA owns the ip, the original not being release had nothing to MS publishing it, more about time resources
    but this is a trilogy release on all platforms so the time & resources are there, question is what engine they using & will all versions feature the updated ones( ie will mass effect on PS3 run on ME3 engine or the original? and will ME2 be the PS3 version with the ME3 engine on 360?
    I've got 2 should I get this?

    I thought ME2 for the PS3 was using the ME3 engine TGO.

    It was, I'm asking what the 360 version of ME2 will be
    Original or the PS3 version?
    cuz 360 owners will have more reason to get it if they own the original don't ya think?

    OIC. Good question. My assumption is they won't change it. They will make more money that way

    Cleverly repackaged by EA there, unless they bought the rights from MS. I think it'll be updated like ME2 as well rather than a straight port (which they couldve just done for ME2 but didn't), we'll see anyway.

    Never got into this game...primarily due to the fact that I can't find it believable since it's not an open-world.

    Think about it...planets, space...linear gameplay...???

    At least Halo had huge maps and gave you some control over what or where you wanted to attack from.

    ME is generally indoors and whatever is outdoors, feels confined.

    A combination of storytelling from ME + Open-ness of Fallout would've been perfect.

    It'll be both PSN stand alone and part of a trilogy.

    I'll get the trilogy on PS3 so I can get trophies for ME1 and also less discs since ME2 and ME3 are two discs on 360. I just hope the release date for the PS3 version isnt too much further off than the 360 one.

    Wish it was a disc release, but I dont forsee me buying it unless its improved over the 360 release. (Which, since they still need to port it I'd be shocked if it still had the issues - the texture loading really took me out of it)

    It is a disc release if you buy the trilogy pack.

    The future is open-world...and maybe a more linear, controlled open-world (for games that are more action-oriented) but for a game like this, it would make perfect sense to make it open-world, ESPECIALLY since it's an RPG.

    The whole broken parts are not attractive. I want all games to have no loading, everything needs to be seamless. Though for games such as action/adventure, I can live through that if they give me the entertainment value and cinematic feel that generally comes better with controlled, linear environments.

    Otherwise, I had a blast playing the ME2 demo...some parts were really well done as far as cinematics but that's not good enough for me. I want control and longevity.

    First was the best in the series even though shooting mechanics were improved in 2&3.
    Sadly sequels lost the plot and the feeling of exploration.

    Agreed. I usually attract criticism for saying that ME is a third person shooter with RPG elements, but it actually is true.

    There were a total of like 8 skills in the game and every enemy/ally used the same skills.
    ME2 had hundreds of planets and of those, literally 5% were the ones you could land on.
    The places you DID get to go to were corridors and small rooms.
    The 'role playing' aspect comes in with the player choice in story and nothing else
    The animations is easily the worst of any AAA game this gen.
    The load times are outrageous even with the digital versions.

    The one thing that I will say in favour for this series is the great lore and universe it presented.

    ME3 was the best IMO. Expanded on the RPG dialog choices as well which was nice.

    You do realize they couldn't accomplish all that on current gen consoles, right?
