I love 1 and 2 soooooooo much.

I am going to get this I know, I can’t even pretend I am holding out.


Dang, they actually upgraded the visuals by quite a bit if you look at the side-by-side comparisons at the website, it’s increased my interest in this collection. I honestly thought it would’ve just been a simple resolution and framerate boost so this is a pleasant surprise for me. Will most likely get this down the line in that case.


This will get me through Summer!

The comparisons of ME1 look great!


Ok EA, you got me again. As someone who loved ME 1 & 2, and really liked ME3 except for the ending, I’m in on day 1 for this. Played through the first two games half a dozen times, but only played though the third the one time (I was really disappointed with the ending). I think I’m ready to love again :laughing:.

How dare big bad EA allow Bioware to do this.

Here is the collectors edition. Without the game …

I love Mass Effect. But I really wish they had done a proper remake, I allready own all of this and shelling out €60 for a prettier ME1 feels unnecessary.

Do a proper remake with Dragon Age, Anthem Next and Mass Effect on their hands?

This is great for everybody who wants to play them and couldnt in a more modern way, with a single launcher and improved graphics.

As long as Miranda’s booty is still the same :grinning:

I’m not saying it would have been easy. I’m saying it’s what I would prefer. I allready own all of this, and it’s easy to install and play on my Series X.

Of course it’s great for people who haven’t played the games. I am not in that category.

looks almost like a remake o

Never played ME but still know all the big plot twists lol

Easiest day one purchase I’ll ever make :grin:


:star_struck: Thank god! This makes me so happy.

It does! Now I wonder how characters look.

Yeah, not going to pretend I’m not in On this.

This is a must buy for anyone who hasn’t experienced these games.

As someone who has played through them and still owns the original discs, I’m on the fence. I’m a little disappointed that they’ll be running in forward-compatible mode on the new consoles, although admittedly I’m not sure what I could expect with a dedicated PS5 / Series X version.

I should put the original in my Series X to see how it runs and if there’s any auto HDR.
