Mass Effect Trilogy is in Discussion for PS4 and Xbox One, But How Long Could it Take?

Apparently, it took 6 months to bring Mass Effect 3 alone to the Wii U which, quite frankly, did not pay off as well as EA had intended.

The story is too old to be commented.

I would buy the entire trilogy day 1 for PS4 just to play through them all again before mass effect 4 drops.

Just recently finished the trilogy on PS3, but I was wanting to replay it all again, PS4 sounds like it would great

amiga-man879d ago

I have only played Mass Effect 3 as it was free with PS+ I really enjoyed it so would probably bite for the trilogy on the PS4 as long as it's done well.

Drakesfortune879d ago

I would do exactly the same, great games, yeah last one erked me a bit but was still enjoyable..

The potential for mass effect 4 on ps4 has me foaming from the mouth!

bjmartynhak879d ago

Day one for me too.

Mass Effect, Metro, Crysis, Dead Space... never played these series, so I would welcome a next-gen version of any of them.

Dlacy13g880d ago

I would much rather they focus on making new games than try and sell me the games I already bought and played with a little more polish to them.

Thank you! I feel like this is getting out of hand now. With the port of Tomb Raider, Dead Nation, Rayman Legends, possibility of Uncharted coming, now Mass Effect. Other developers are also talking about porting older tittles to the PS4.

I hope this is not a new trend being started for this generation. I didn't spend $400+ on a slightly upscale PS3 console.

Developers were toting how much more powerful the PS4 is over the PS3. Then how come we keep getting ports of older tittles just being touched up on and then being asked to pay $60 all over again.

This not a dig at Sony or the PS4 but more so at the developers. They should be spending there time making either sequels or brand new IP's not touching up on there older already released tittles.

I get where you're coming from, but there has to be some kind of legacy program that makes our old games look better besides emulation. I don't complain when movies that are already on DVD come to Blu-Ray because I don't HAVE to re-purchase them. It's the same with video games. It's good to have options.

Edit: Also, I'm not ignorant of PlayStation Now, but we have no proof that it will be an efficient alternative to emulation. Plus, that service is not available on Xbox One.

Dlacy13g879d ago (Edited 879d ago )

Yeah this problem is not a platform specific issue. My personal belief is this was a calculated move by both Sony and MS to not offer backwards compatibility. They realize by not offering that as a value add proposition they can offer up HD remakes or other services with the old gen titles on them at a cost. This also opens the door to 3rd party devs to follow suit and do things like this rumor.

It's just feels so shady to me.

Edit: @B-TENdotcom I see where you are coming from, but I don't agree we need some system for making them "look better". There should be systems carried forward that allow us to continue to play them. This is one of the biggest areas where PC has consoles beat hands down.

Maxor879d ago

No console company like backup compatibility. It's the nature of the business to rape you on both hardware and software fronts. If you don't like that then game on the PC, where as your hardware get better so do the game. Otherwise enjoy your $60 ports or pay up for Playstation Now.

@Dlacy13g

A "Calculated" move by Sony & Microsoft? Really. Do you even know how architecture works? In order to have proper backwards capabilities both systems would need a second CPU/GPU combo onboard, meaning higher cost for the product (PS3 Launch all over again). If not we would be getting emulated ports of games on the system and we saw how good that was for the Xbox 360.

I wouldn't go as far as say it was a move made by Sony and Microsoft to make HD remakes of games. That is pretty ridiculous to consider. All in all its a risk for both companies and publishers to do this, as there is no way to anticipate how many units it will move and if the port/remaster version would be worth it.

There is nothing shady going on, mainly cause we haven't seen any first party games being "remastered" for the systems (not including Dead Nation as that was proven its basically just a prettier version of the game)

I personally want to see games like The Last of Us, Uncharted, and Mass Effect Trilogy on my PS4. I don't see anything wrong with that, they did it last gen, they'll do it this gen.

No one really complained about all the PS2 games remastered for PS3 or Halo remastered for Xbox 360. Why now?

If I can transfer my saves then I will rebuy.

ironfist92879d ago

I dunno, part of the appeal is trying different choices and seeing the outcomes.

krazykombatant879d ago

> implying there is much of an appeal after ME3
> Implying choices matter in mass effect.

djplonker879d ago

Oh god I am craving mass effect 3s multiplayer now... yes please ea I want it on ps4

:3

(But a separate team working on it so it doesn't affect me4 or dragon age 3)

nope111879d ago

Meh, only do ME1 since it was the best and a TRUE RPG in the series.
And what about KOTOR 1-2? i would love to play them with updated visuals.
