EA leaves PS3 owners of Dragon Age: Origins Collectors Edition with a useless special edition disc.

If you have been thinking of purchasing Dragon Age:  Origins, I can tell you that you will not be disappointed by the game.  However if you own a PS3 and were thinking of buying the Collectors, you may want to hold off on this.

It seems that EA decided to put the PS3 Collectors Edition disc onto a blu-ray to take advantage of the PS3’s blu-ray drive.  This is great, except the disc has the gorgeous game soundtrack in it’s entirety…in mp3 format.  The ps3 CAN read mp3’s but not if they are on a blu-ray disc.

So owners of the Collectors edition cannot access the soundtrack unless they have another device capable of reading mp3’s from a blu-ray, or unless they buy a blu-ray drive for their PC.

If i owned a ps3 (not until FFXIII comes out xD) I would be pretty upset if I paid $75 for a collectors edition, only to find out that i can’t access content on it from my PS3.

    1. I would just like to point out that the ps3 has no problem playing mp3 from a blu-ray as long as its coded to it correctly. EA themselves saved it onto the discs as if it was just data to be stored, making them inaccesible from a system that can’t read the command of an executable file.

    2. course i know it’s also coming out on the 360, and i will be buying it for the 360 as well as purchasing a ps3 for it.
      hopefully i can get a ffxiii ps3 in the US!
      i’m a collector of FF, i can’t help myself xD
