When I started Final Fantasy XIII-2 , I got me a little bonus because I had Final Fantasy XIII save data on my PS3.

It's always great when a publisher gives you a reward for playing a previous entry in a franchise. And when Mass Effect 3 comes out, developer BioWare suggests that you hang onto that save file…

Studio associate producer Mike Gamble told GamerZines that "it wouldn't be a bad idea" to keep that save, although he "can't say anything" about future ME installments just yet. ME2 and ME3 use the save files from their predecessors but remember, ME3 is supposed to be the end of a trilogy, so… Another game in the Mass Effect universe? When?

Well, we can be patient. As for the ending that lies in sight, Gamble added:

"We want the outcomes to be satisfying to the player. That doesn't necessarily mean they're all going to be happy or positive, but they have to be satisfying. Players have to understand that the choices they've been making in this game and in previous have had an impact, and that they're an architect in what happens."

It'll be interesting to see the reaction of the fans.

I love the idea of what I did in ME2 translates into issues I'll face in ME3, so of course I'll save it!

ha, well Biker, don't know if I'll be able to match your Ultimate Game-Central station you've got going on =)

and Killa, that's only enough time to take a long elevator ride, preceded by a loading screen, followed up with another loading screen, and a short conversation with some mindless drone asking worthless questions.

It would be interesting to see if they used save data in ME in some capacity to determine outcomes in another IP, like Dragon Age.

I'm sure that Mass Effect's universe will keep on going for a very long time.

So I'm happy to say that I'm completely ready for all those saves since I've already re-dressed my 320GB Slim sweetie in a stunning 750 GB 1-piece outfit, plus my 60GB Mistress is now sporting a 1T hard drive under her Phat bonnet as well.

Now all I've still got to do is to get 2 my favorite PS3 gal-pals some cards, roses, & as Forest Gump always says………
a box of chocolates.

To me it makes sense that they'd utilize ME3 save data to keep canon in some future ME-universe game. They'll probably give you some type of bonus for it also.

sweet!
the more ME the better, id be cool if they did a prequel for a change, go back to the origins of the series.

as for the ending of ME3 im really starting to get worried about it.
they said it will anger allot of fans, and as soon as i heard that i instantly was reminded of arkham citys ending.
sorry, but i was swearing blue at my TV for a good 30 minutes after that!
just spoiled the whole game!
please bioware, please dont do the same!
