I have just pissed myself like an excited dog.
At long, last Mass Effect 1 will finally be on the PS3. Along with 2 in 3 in one hard drive space-consuming package.
Unfortunately, I already bought Mass Effect 2 and 3. But I'll still be buying this. So I'm basically burning money. But it's worth burning, in my opinion.

Worth it? Not sure. I have Mass Effect 2 and 3 for my PS3, but I'm not sure if this is worth it just for one game I didn't get to play. If it had some DLC, it might be more worth it, even if I already have nearly all DLC for Mass Effect 2 (though none for 3)

I probably won't touch this unless I get a console, seeing as how I've already got all three on PC with loads of DLC anyway.
Still, would be a convenient buy, should I pick up an Xbox 360.

Why?
ignoring the fact that you are playing in on a console....
just why would you buy something you already have?
and im supposing you played ME1 before playing 2 and 3, i dont want to suppose you are that stupid

to conclude, there already is a Mass Effect thread

As much as I want this, I already own all three and all the DLC for each title. Mass Effect is my favorite Sci-fi game of all time.

I was joking, the sarcasm was obvious. Also, since when do i hate on all games? The only game I've hated on openly is Borderlands, and with good reason.

Oh, I see. Why is it so hard for me to pick up on sarcasm nowadays?

He says he has a PS3 they never got the original ME and that's why he's buying it. I don't see whats so stupid about it when he can just sell/ trade ME2 and 3.

I'm glad that PS3 users can finally experience Mass Effect 1...even though there might be a couple of mods. Better then the PC's user interface at least though.

Ouch, I chose Xbox over PS3 purely because of the mass effect series. Didn't think all I needed to do was wait three or four months for this announcement.

Maybe because it's harder to detect sarcasm in written form, even if you don't have a problem with detecting sarcasm in real life. What mostly gives away sarcasm is how a person sounds when he/she says it or sometimes the body language. While written it is not easy to see if one is being sarcastic, unless it's written painfully obvious, which I didn't think Protagonist did.

nah I saw it being shit coming from a mile off considering what EA had done around the time it was in development. Its a shame because the first two are so great.

So is now the perfect chance to get into Mass Effect? I've never played 1 second of the series and I'm always on the PS3.

I think you should be more worried about why your friends think you would write fanfic about a man and his ship/AI

I think you have the order reversed there, EA has slowly killed just about every game they touched since about 2000. They Utterly ruined what Bio-ware started in 2007 with the buy out. Been rubbish since. EA goes purely for profit. Point and case both BF3 and ME3. Multiplayer modes, remeber when everyone had a chance at the same thing? From playing wit your buddy on Super mario bro, to the halo series. It was never a contest of who could pay more to get better items,or who could spend more for that matter. Everyone was on the same level of chance. Now? Download this speand this play for this many hours. I don't know about anyone else but when I play a game I play to enjoy it, not be at a disadvantage compared to pay to play players. The rewards such as higher stats different weapons ect, is great if it is all earned you have something to strive for, but why the hell would you nearly force customers to buy more than they need to? Greed, because they can, because people will buy it. In the end all it does is take those that actually have an ability/skill on a game to fight in an endless battle of skill vs equipment. EA didn't start this concept but they sure have prefcted it.

So no EA was the downfal of ME3

playing the secuel of a game without playing the original is stupid, even more of a game when story means so much as in ME, buying 2 things he already has is the other 1/3 of stupid, and the last 1/3 is using a ps3 instead of a pc, more so when he could just download ME1 for pc thus its a relatively old game

Quite the opposite. EA was the downfall of Mass Effect. I loved the new ones, but the original was by far best.

Yeah, let me download ME1 on my shitty laptop that lags when it plays The Binding of Isaac. That'll work out.
And I'm not getting the trilogy. I didn't know that ME1 would be available on the PSN for $15.
And yes, I know playing a sequel without playing the original is dumb. That's why I put off playing the series until ME3 came out. Because at that point I gave up hope of ever seeing ME1 on the PS3.
