Mass Effect Could Get Its Own Definitive Edition
I’m a little bit on the fence when it comes to HD remakes and Definitive Editions. On the one hand, it would be great to play some of the finest games of past generations with updated visuals and tweaked mechanics, but on the other hand I wouldn’t mind new IP’s from those same studios rather than a rehash of games the industry already has.
So I’m still mixed about news suggesting that BioWare could potentially release the entire Mass Effect Trilogy on PS4 and Xbox One.

A response to a fan question on Twitter by General Manager at BioWare revealed that the studio has dicusssed and thought about the possibility of remastering their sci-fi franchise for new consoles.

It’s unclear who the hell at BioWare would actually work on this project, considering that they’re buys with both Dragon Age and Mass Effect sequels at this time. Again, another reason why a project like this would probably set back new titles, which doesn’t sit well with me.
But I can think of more than a few people that would definitely lie the idea of the entire trilogy getting a bit of a facelift. The Mass Effect trilogy was one of the defining sags of the last generation, and BioWare is hoping their new entry will do the same for this new generation of consoles.
So should we really be asking for a Definitive Edition of games we already have? Maybe not.
