Just look at the first and the second Mass Effect. It's been years and all the hype and DLC plans died out for these two games, and they have yet to release GOTY edition for both games.

I've wondered that as well. I can only assume the DLC for 2 sells well enough that they don't want to cut into it...

Seems pretty likely, yeah.

On the topic of the Firefight Pack, this is really just money-grabbing. A lot of people already have the Indra, while the Krysae, Reegar, Harrier and Geth SMG were created for MP. The cost of porting them over to SP would literally be 0 dollars.

So in essence they're charging two bucks for yet another SMG that'll suck (like all SMGs except the Hurricane do), and a rifle that apparently does extra damage against geth, whom you fight approximately 15% of the entire game.

I'm still going to get it, because I want the Krysae in single player. If it's the non-nerfed version, it's basically a glorious slaughter device. The Reegar and Harrier are both awesome guns as well.

But again, they already exist, so why not port them over for free?
