Bonus for Insanity?

I know there is a bonus for getting to lvl 60 and whatnot in ME1, but what about beating it on insanity or beating most the game certain squad members? Are there bonuses for those?

Nope. No insanity bonus.
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

I think I head that there is a bonus for insanity.

I've heard pretty much ever since they announced character importing that beating Insanity would have some sort of perk. Although I guess thinking about it the endgame saves have nothing to do with difficulty, perhaps they won't.

No, they have posted what gives a bonus and what doesn't. Insanity gets no bonus, they even said, something along the lines of:

"You play on Insanity for a challenge, we would think you wouldn't want it to be any easier."

I can try to find a link, as that is not a direct quote.

Difficulty will not matter for the import, you can do everything on casual and be as powerful as someone who beat ME1 on insanity.

I love harder difficulty playthroughs, but you already get something for doing that (an achievement, a gamer pic) in ME1, we didn't feel we needed to also give you a power boost for ME2. If you like challenge, you should be happy you're not getting a power boost!

Someone else asked if any specific quests mattered - I don't know. We import every choice you made, and every quest you completed, over all of ME1 essentially. Even if that choice didn't matter for ME2, it might end up mattering for ME3.

^Thanks so much. Makes my final playthrough a lot easier. I didn't really want to do insanity. I wonder if the squadmate achievements have any impact though. I have done 3 playthroughs and still haven't gotten a single one yet.

I hope squad mate achievements have some impact. I've only gotten Tali's so far but will soon have Liaras and Kaiden's for some biotic bonuses.
