BioWare hasn't ruled it out, but there are no plans right now to bring the first three games to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
There is quite a vocal demand for this, EA should give the green light and outsource it to a reputable dev (i.e Bluepoint) if they want to use Bioware's time/resources purely for the new game. By the time Mass Effect comes out at the back end of 2016, it will have been almost 5 years since the last game and it would be a great way to bring fans back and for newcomers to familiarise with the series. I strongly believe it it in their best interest to make this happen.
The PS4 could never and would never be allowed a trilogy as the first game was produced and supported by Microsoft studios in an agreement w/Bioware. It was an MS Exclusive.
Good news! Stop remastering games from last gen.
Except for the fact that the first game and by proxy the trilogy already exists on the PS3. I own it as a matter of fact.
The original was released on Playstation 3 a couple years ago so I wouldn't rule it out by any means.
The original Mass Effect came to PS3 years ago as a digital download. It was also included in a trilogy disc release.
Pretty late bud. EA bought the IP and publishing rights to Mass Effect, MS owns zero of it as of 2007. In fact, MS never owned the IP, Bioware did. EA published Mass Effect 1 on PC, not MS. EA published Mass Effect 1 on PS3...not MS. On topic. Its not even up to Bioware as much as its up to EA, its EA's IP. They wouldn't even be directly doing it as they outsourced the Wii U port anyway. http://www.polygon.com/gami... This team might be the team that does the ports...maybe. But EA and Bioware wouldn't say even if they where as I doubt they would be that transparent. A port is very likely near release.
I've played the entire trilogy collection on the PS3.
Been sleeping under a rock? I have the trilogy for ps3. Where you been the last 3 years since it released?
I disagree. They are starting new I think with new characters so it will be a new game. Mass Effect one was exclusive and produced by MS studios like TheXgamerluve said. I wouldn't say I am apossed to it but it's not needed. MS is going to have them with backwards compatitbility so many can still play them :) The luxury of being a multi console owner
Erm, the first is game IS available on the PS3...
Another person that's been sleeping under a rock for quite some time since the trilogy came to PS3. How does someone into Mass Effect not remember the full trilogy releasing on PS3??!
Reluctant to get the original trilogy, can't bring myself to spend that long on last gen games. Giving them a lick of paint and a collection would sway me though!
So are they gonna finally add 2 & 3 on the XBOX Digital Store ? After the Backwards Compatibility Update rekeases ? They were never uploaded
Well not remastered BUT since BC was announced that's all i need. I'll play the trilogy a couple times before new mass effect game :D. Not saying im a xbox fanboy since i think both systems are great but im glad i own a Xbone for now.
Good. Focus on the future of Mass Effect, not the past. Mass Effect Andromeda doesn't seem to be a sequel to ME3 so there's no reason people need to play them on PS4/XB1.
I would buy it. I can't believe how many people are uninformed that Mass Effect isn't a MS exculsive and hasn't been for years. It was just a very long timed exculsive.
These games don't need a remaster. I'm playing Dragon Age 2 now on 360 a slight graphical upgrade wouldn't change anything gameplay wise. Hurry up and approve it EA.
I was playing mass effect 1 on my xbox one this morning
Why a disagree? I'm a preview member and its on backwards compatibility
The most remaster I would like since I missed the trilogy!
They don't want people playing the first Mass Effect otherwise they might want the gameplay to be like it for the new version. I guess what I'm saying is I miss the gameplay from the first game not the new action over rpg greatness.
If people want to play it with higher textures, higher resolution, and higher framerate, just buy the PC version for $5-10. It's not like you need a powerful PC to play it at 1080/60. Any graphics card bought for 150 or more then last four or so years can play this well. At this point even a new $85 one is more then enough. Why pay $60 a game for something you can get now for $5-10? Makes no sense. Halo, The Last of Us, and the other MS/Sony EXCLUSIVES, which are having remasters is one thing... a better PC version doesn't exist. Therefore a remaster makes sense. But when there is a very good PC version that was made back then, there isn't a need for it. The lone exception is GoW, which is more of an Xbox One thing to give them another quasi-exclusive and a Microsoft showcase on PC for Win10 and DX12. So in essence, you want a remaster, buy the PC version. It's cheap and runs well on ancient hardware.
They are all $5 at GS and BC is coming to Xbone so really no need to hope for it on Xbone now. Can't wait til all the support comes. ME3 MP was awesome and I have some friends who would love to go back and play it
Fallout 4 will include a BC Fallout 3 with the XB1 version. The same with the new Rainbow Six with Vegas 1 and 2. So maybe we can expect mass effect 2/3 when Mass Effect 4 is release since Mass Effect 1 is already available with BC preview member.
