    Yes, I have bought Quite a few. I'm not sure if you need a US shipping address on the account. I think you do. I just used an address from the yellow pages.

    just picked up ME3 digital deluxe on that sale for 9$ (standard version is 6$) I'm on my umpteenth play through on ME2 digital deluxe and I just discovered exactly how much dlc came with it, like I'd never done the firewalker missions until now. (also got the lair of the shadow broker for the first time). So I figured the extra 3$ was worth whatever goodies I'll forget about and rediscover in 2 years...

    Yeah, ME2 and ME3 DLCs are a scam because they're purchased via the fixed-rate Bioware Points. Deluxe is the cheapest way to get any of the DLCs because Deluxe and Deluxe upgrades at least get discounted once in a while.

    To buy all the ME3 DLCs requires 4000 Bioware Points (I think that excludes DLCs that come with Deluxe). Every time I have checked, it was $10 = 800 points.

    yup just spent more on lair of the shadow broker dlc for ME2, 10$, than I spent on either digital deluxe edition (ME2 8$, or ME3 9$) total rip and yet I still paid it. I guess in the end I'll equate it to 40$ total spent on the trilogy + some DLC's and forget about where each dollar went as a part of that. lol

    I think I will wait until I can get ME1,2, and 3 + all the DLCs for about £40.

    It's never going to happen. EA doesn't have a history of packaging DLCs into one package. Just look at The Sims and The Sims 2. You still have to buy all the expansions individually (some are bundled with the base game but that's it).

    I remember buying the ultimate Dragon Age (at release) which came with I think a couple of DLCs.

    The newest Metro game's DLC is a higher difficult level.

    they did all dlc + awakening expansion for origins but they've not repeated it with Dragon Age 2, or any other game. In fact that might just be the exception that proves the rule. They did it once to see if it really made more money to do it that way. My guess is that it didn't, it likely made less. So they'll continue the individual dlc crap with just a few goodies for the digital deluxe. ME2 is nearly 3 years old and no bundles. They already have a "trilogy" pack for ME 1, 2, and 3. Said pack doesn't have all the dlc.

    for pc it has the dlc for ME1, but only cerberus pack for ME2 and online pass for ME3.

    playstation has more dlc for me2 but that was a bundle worked out for that console and that game only. It lacks pinnacle station for me1, lacks weapon, armorpacks and arrival dlc from me2, and has the online pass for me3.

    playstation has the best deal but even it lacks a ton of dlc.
