I still think it's unlikely, but I'll now admit that there is a realistic chance of it happening. I also think that if it does happen, ME4 is further away than we think.

ME trilogy on ps4 is a day one buy. Such a great series, the best of them being ME1 imo because it had the best story of the bunch.

As long as they offer up any non-framerate/resolution improvements to PC, I'm good, and would probably triple dip. And needs to be done by an outside team so that it doesn't affect ME4's release timeframe.

Most likely would be handled by an outside team than Bioware Montreal itself so I doubt it would affect development.

I doubt they'd release a remastered trilogy and ME4 that close together. That's why I think if it happens, ME4 is further than we hope.

Perhaps. I would assume 6 months to a year apart.

The thing I'd love to hear from people is what you'd like to have in such an experience. For me (personal opinion, and based on what people have told me many times before):

- 1080p
- 60 fps
- High res textures, especially on ME1
- Some shader improvements commensurate with newer GPUs
- All the DLC
- "Seamless experience" - the adventures flow into each other without having to go back to save import, menu screens, etc.

Agree / disagree? What else?

Bear in mind this is a "wish list" at this point...

I'm not sure I need the seamless experience bit... I'm fine with the games as they are, but looking nicer. I'm sure there's a few people that would like to skip certain entries, so making it one giant game might annoy them a bit. I also wouldn't want the gameplay changed so all three play the same. Basically, all I want is the three games looking nicer.

Oh, and some model improvements for FemShep. Better hair, face geometry from ME3 backported to the earlier games.

Bear in mind this is a "wish list" at this point...

- 1080p - 60 fps
- all DLC included
- high res textures
- lighting and shader improvements where applicable
- shorter elevator times in ME1 and loading screens in the sequels.
- fixing the ability to walk in ME2/3 hubs
- getting rid of those insta-kills in ME3, they're bad gameplay

The seamless experience sounds cool, as long as we also have the option to do a specific game (with appropriate Genesis comic at the start, or a system more akin to Dragon Age Keep).

I'd play the shit out of ME3 MP again.

Yes, exactly this. And controller support for the PC. Keep it simple enough so that it's cheap enough to get it out there.

That's literally almost word for word what I would envision for a "wish list". The seamless experience bit would be an excellent idea actually if feasible. I'm assuming that would 'theoretically' entail being on one disc also?

It's probably too much work, but as many have noted... updated gameplay mechanics for ME1. Just the way the cover & movement were handled are archaic and clumsy.

That said, I'd be curious to see how one would translate the existing inventory system in ME1 to what ME3 did. Might be a good way to decimate all those upgrades and make it easier to switch ammo types.

DLC is the most important thing. It's so difficult to get some of the DLC that having it all in one nice package for PS4 would be amazing.

Also amazing would be official controller support for the PC versions. This has prevented me from replaying as I want to play on my TV.

Holstering in ME3.

Make the jump boosters of the Mako in ME1 100% more efficient so we can jump over almost every cliffs or mountains in our way without all the issues of the current ME1.

Also holstering in ME3.

Yes 100% agree
And if we where to buy such a thing maybe in a future game in the series that is yet to be unveiled you get something special if you finished the trilogy with these "releases".

That way "true" fans are recognized in a fun way but not in a way to drives away new players for that game.
