Why Would You Like To See Mass Effect 1 On PS3?

We put the question out there ...

Why would you like to see Mass Effect 1 on PS3?

And this is what some of our BSN group members have to say:

"Well with my laptop making noises like a dying cat every five seconds and struggling to get the grass to work on KOTOR, playing Mass Effect One seems like a distant dream. I have played every single one of Bioware's games, and loved them - the worlds, the characters, the choices.

I proudly display my games on my shelf and happily lend them to anyone who wants a go. My fave game is Mass Effect 2, actullay--just Mass Effect in general, I love the world--I've even read the novels--and I really hope it gets a paper and pen RP one day.

I poured over the codex in ME2 just to get to grips with the world, whcih was quite a task seeing as I had not played the first game but it didn't put me off. It just made me want to play the first game even more, it seems strange that I'm so obbessed with Mass Effect yet I can't play the first game--or lend it to people to spread the Mass Effect joy.

So yeah...why not?"

"Starting ME2 on PS3 I instantly fell in love with Shepard’s story but there where so many things I didn't understand. It wasn't until I was able to play ME1 on my laptop that I was able to put some of the pieces together, but there are still pieces missing.

We don't get to have our chosen LI with us on the Normandy at the beginning of ME2 unless that LI is Liara, Harkin's and Nassana have never met Shepard before and there's no Conrad Verner. The Galactic News on the Citadel in ME2 doesn't mean as much because it references a lot of things that happened in ME1, therefore things you had no influence in and there are dialogue differences within ME2 and ME3 that PS3 players have to watch YouTube to see. And that is just to name a few.

The point is Mass Effect is a classic and there are many PS3 players that would buy it in a heart beat if it meant they could complete their Shepard’s story.

There has been a lot of talk about artistic integrity in regards to the endings, I would have also thought that same integrity would ensure that anyone, no matter what platform they play on, could have the opportunity to complete the Mass Effect Experience as it was intended to be played from Mass Effect all the way through to Mass Effect 3."

"I think of all the people that complained about an ending they didn't liked and were listened.
We miss the beginning of the story, we missed much more.
We deserve it.
We're loyal fans too and we're not a few bunch"

"Before I started on the PS3, I use to use the PC, where I could play ME. From first-hand experience, I know exactly what PS3 players are missing out on. As a part of the PS3 community, I feel that I'm missing out on ME, too.

The Mass Effect series follows the continued story of Commander Shepherd. The first and longest game in this story hasn't been available to PS3 users, as a result we only receive about 5/9ths of it. This isn't fair to the PS3 community as we contribute just as much as the XBox and PC communities do. Why should we miss out on the full series? Not experiencing ME loses valuable understanding, which I also know from first-hand experience, as I started with ME2.

Playing the first game gave me a better knowledge of everything, from places to people. The vehicle exploration was much better than with the Hammerhead, with lots of planets to explore, Thresher Maws to kill and the ability to leave the Mako whenever you like (within reason). Just starting a new game in ME 2 or 3 means Shepherd has been through less, as have you."

And this is what people from our BSN thread had to say before it got locked:

"If they do I'd bet it'd be in a special ultimate trilogy collection type of set, including all three games and all dlc. I'd bet there would be changes to ME1 though in order to avoid any issues with Microsoft blocking it from happening. There would also have to be updates to both ME2 and ME3 in order to incorporate the extra ME1 centric content that was cut from the PS3 versions of both (well ME2 anyways, not sure about ME3) since ME1 didn't come out on PS3. I could see a multi disk release that does this maybe. That way they could incorporate any updates directly to disc and avoid all the extra fees it costs to release patches.

Thats how I'd like to see it anyways, I'd buy it if that happened, even with owning both ME2 and 3 already. "

"i really want ME1 on the PS3!!
The Playstation 3 is my favorite console on the citadel!

We need Mass Effect 1 remake with the new engine from ME3!

Long live to Mass Effect series! <3 "

"Oh if only that could happen...then again I still throw money on it like i a 3 for 1 deal on a stripper."

"I already beat Mass Effect on 360, but I'd love to pick up a potential PS3 version with updated graphics."

"I would really love Bioware even more than I already do if they managed to gain the rights to port the first game over the PS3. Like most here, I don't expect to see it happen, but I can dream. :)"

" would pay whatever they asked for Mass Effect 1 on ps3.

Please EA release it on ps3!"

"I would definitely get Mass Effect 1 on ps3, should it be released someday. Ps3 is my preferred console, and it would be nice to have the entire trilogy available on ps3 as well."

"Hear, hear! Although my social life would probably suffer for a couple of months after such a release"

"Anyway I want it on PS3 too (my preferred system). I've played ME1 (bought an Xbox360 for that sole purpose).
I've not played ME2 or ME3 on the Xbox360, only played those on the PS3, and while some things ring a bell from ME1 (especially in ME3), Some characters don't show up that you met in ME1, which is odd because 1 character from ME1 is in ME3 on the PS3. which Shepard should know (so should another squad member), but it's like they never met before."

"If they can patch this game to run well as well as do something about these endings i would be on board no doubt. In fact i would shave my head rub oils on my body and throw the recently cut hair all over my body. No not really but i would freak out though. They dont even have to make a disk version, just slap that sucker on psn."

"Simple - It's a classic!

Graphics don't make a game - they enhance it.
ME1 is closer to ME3 in it's weapon customisation -- just toned down a little
The same rooms - different box layouts had a certain charm - quite challenging on Insanity.
The Mako yes it was a nightmare to control but that was part of it's charm, and seeing it stranded in ME2 was touching :(
Shooting a Geth Colossus with it was a blast (excuse the pun).
Story and voice acting stood the test of time.
Jennifer Hale is my favorite voice actress having first heard her in Grandia II.

Bring down the Sky was great DLC too

It deserves to be on the PS3.
We deserve to see the origins of Mass Effect (it's like handing a child half a book which starts at the middle)"

"I support ME1 on PS3 wholeheartedly. We PS3 users shouldn't be punished by the constant pissing contest between Microsoft and Sony. As Mass Effect fans, we have just as much right to have the full experience.

Port ME1 and patch PS3-ME2 to accept save imports!"

"I really wish Mass Effect 1 gets a PS3 release, in fact I dream about it. It's my favorite current system and I want so much to play this game with a DS3.

BioWare did an amazing port with ME2 PS3 (Recon Hood in it from the get go :) and I love ME3 so much, I want to do the complete trilogy on that system."

"I feel like this is just wishful thinking, but if there's any way my support can help make this a reality I'm all for it. I simply enjoy PS3 as a system more than the 360 (and yes, it's because I'm a Blu-Ray nut) and if I'd be allowed to play the original ME I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

More realistically though, I'm hoping Bioware may release "definitive/remastered/whatever" editions of all three for whatever next-gen consoles the brain trusts are working on right now..."

"i was hooked with mass effect by the time I finished ME2 in my PS3. I enjoyed ME2 so much that it was such a shame I could not play the first one on my PS3. Solution, I bought an XBOX360, I was already considering it (wanting to play XBOX360 exclusives), the desire and curiosity of how the actual first game played out, gave me the reason to check the XBOX :)
though gameplay mechanics is a little rough (shooting+cover), the narrative/story compensated and make it up (which is the strong asset of an ME game). If ME1 do comes to the PS3 via PSN, will definitely buy it.
note: Still love ME3 despite the bad ending :) hope they provide the needed closures to make sense of the ending."

"I would love ME1 to appear on the PS3. After ME3 I want the full story for all the characters. I want to see the creation and blossoming of Garrus and Shephard bromance and some of my minor decisions from ME1 that effects ME3 in a minor way.

Hell if Bioware set up a kickstarter I would gladly give a few quid towards it.

I could play ME1 on PC but it won't be my Shepard and some decision would be for nothing."

"I would just like to post here in support of ME1 on PS3. I would like to own the whole trilogy on PS3, my chosen system.

I owned a 360 then it RRoD on me and I've been MORE than pleased with the PS3.

I would also help kick-start it if that's what it took."

"i finished the first game in the pc, but i would love t have a version for my ps3, would be a sure buy, no doubt! come on, we all want mass effect 1 for ps3!!!"

"I would purchase Mass Effect 3 for the PS3 the day it was released. I just hope that they would then patch Mass Effect 2 to be able to import characters from ME1 should we get it. I would LOVE to go through the whole trilogy again (Still working on my first ME3 playthrough - but I KNOW I'm up for another go already! ME3 Is a great game, I just wish they would fix the bugs, and give us PS3 users access to these Multiplayer Competitions [which i really don't get - they can give us the 25% bonus XP weekend but not the operation raptor and goliath weekends? WTF is that!] ), especially if I had a copy of Mass Effect 1 to start from. I don't care if they just straight ported the PC version or 360 version to the PS3, as long as we either get all the DLC on disc or are given access to all the DLC from ME1 - I'll be a happy man!! I can't wait to finish ME3 = The story has been great so far, and although I've heard bad things about the endings (I haven't read to much - i don't want anything spoiled for me, I just read tha people were displeased), I'm sure bioware will make it right. I hope they continue the Mass Effect franchise with another great Trilogy of games for both 360, PS3, and hte PC!!!

PLEASE Bioware release ME1 for us PS3 owners!!! And please try to deal with sony to get the multiplayer weekend bonuses extended to us! I know MGO had special weekends (Shame that's being closed down imo :( ), and i'm sure other games on PS3 that are multiconsole have had bonus weekends that the PS3 was able to participate in, I just hope they can fix this soon! It's already 2 weekends we've lost out on :( I hope we don't miss out on next weekends competition!"

"I own them all on XBOX but I would so buy them all for the PS3 if I could. I would kickstart them. I get a little tingly thinking about it."

"i do agree, its kinda sad that theyve given ps3 users the shaft on the storyline, you miss alot if you dont get to port from ME1"

"I've played both ME1 and ME2 on PC before my computer died and I unfortunately lacked the money for a new one, and now owning a PS3 and ME2 I really missed all those cameos and nods to the original ME. And now it just feels weird to play, for instance the Illium - missions without Shiala, Parasini and Conrad Verner. It feels weird that Nassana doesn't know Shepard, or Harkins never met her. It feels weird to play the Freedom's Progress - mission and meeting up with Tali without reassuring her that it's really you by remembering her of the Geth-data you gave her back in ME1.

And besides, ME1 is one of my favourite games. I'd love to play it again. So yeah, I'd definitely be for a PS3 - port of ME1. And if that isn't possible, at least something like a patch that gives PS3 players complete access to all choices of ME1, every minor or bigger one. Completely optional of course, just for those who KNOW the original ME1 and just didn't have the chance to buy the second game for the same system. The interactive comic doesn't do the game or the characters/story any justice."

"I'd purchase the original ME for PS3 in an instant"

"I'd be willing to support a kickstart project as well if that's what it took.

I just recently bought ME1 on Steam, but I'd much rather play it on my PS3. It would definitely be paying 60 bucks for a PS3 version despite the Steam version only being 20 (even less if you snag it while it's on sale). "

"It'd be cool to see the starting point of the trilogy on the PS3. I just really wish Bioware would hurry up and patch the various bugs/glitches."

"I support. Day one buy"

And these are just a hand ful of the support that we've gathered from ONE website!

So now we ask you ...

  1. I love the ME series and one of the things I love best is the continuation of the story and how the actions have consequenses that develop as the stroy progresses. Some of them are small while others can change the way your Shepard is viewed. Having ME1 on PS3 would be a HUGE bonus to the PS3 fan base and even though I currently own ME2 and ME3 on PS3 and ME1 and ME2 on PC I would gladly own complete sets for both platforms ... Just so I can play if the husband has stolen to PS3 for the day ;)
