Bioware could make big bucks if they make prequel DLC

Instead of making ME4 a prequel, just make the major wars of the lore's history additional dlc till ME4 comes out. I personally would love to see the Rachni wars and the First contact war. They can do the same thing Fallout 3 did when operation anchorage. It was a simulation on the past wars. I think it could work.

With the new Xbox coming out in 2013, its hard to justify allocating resources to developing new DLC for an existing that has already paid for itself.

Despite how much I like this idea, I think pipboy's right.

The thing that would just really not make this work is that they would have to allocate resources from ME4 or other parts of Bioware to this ME3 DLC. That would take both time and people away from ME4.

Yeah...probably quarter 4, 360 was released in November, and the holidays and all that jazz...but perhaps there will be a new Mass Effect game for the 720.

Take what you want from that. Its not direct from Microsoft, but the next Playstation is almost 2 years away, so Microsoft will absolutely attempt to get the jump on them by a year if they can. With the line between exclusive titles dwindling, getting your system to market first will absolutely win the next round of the console war.

worst dlc ever in the me series, even worst than pinnacle station. it would literally be a few space battles where you lose/win/lose/win then a group of soldiers starving on a planet before you surrender and the council interrupts the turians killing everyone.
