Really enjoyed the first two on Xbox, wondering if anyone knows of details of a Game Of the Year Xbox 360 edition with all the DLC ?

Next Mass Effect 3 DLC Has "High Potential for Tears"
"It's all hands on deck for this one."
BioWare is already working on the next story DLC for Mass Effect 3, the first details of which have appeared online.
While we don't know the name or proposed release date of the new content patch, we do know that BioWare is enlisting the helping of several names that have previously been involved in the series.
In a post on the BioWare forums, designer Jos Hendriks explained that a team of about eight writers were penning the script, most of whom had worked on some aspect of the game before, saying, "It's all hands on deck for this one. Pretty much every ME3 DLC writer here in Edmonton is involved. (which would include both Patrick Weekes AND John Dombrow)."
While that handles the story of the game, what about the music? Well, it seems series veteran Sam Hulick is set to return to score the new DLC, tweeting last night, "What I'm up to lately: working on an unannounced Mass Effect 3DLC! More details on this coming later on."
Hulick has previously worked on the first and second Mass Effect games, as well as Mass Effect 3, though he was noticeably absent from the soundtrack for the recent Leviathan and Omega expansions. He also dropped in a little tease about what he's planning on bringing to the table this time, tweeting, "Tossing in piano and muted strings for this one particular piece. High potential for tears. #ME3DLC"
The final piece of info we have covers some of the voice actors that are set to return. It seems Seth Green, who's voiced Normandy pilot Joker since the series began is back as BioWare producer and voice director Caroline Livingstone tweeted him to say, "@SethGreen thank you for yet another fantastic session. And thank you for being such a kind person. You are lovely!"
Additionally, Raphael Sbarge who voices squadmate Kaiden Alenko tweeted back in October that he was recording new lines for the game. With none of the squadmates appearing in Omega, it looks like this was also for the unnamed upcoming DLC
This will be the fifth major single-player DLC pack BioWare has released for Mass Effect 3. With such a host of big names being called back in, do you reckon this could be the studio planning to see the title off with a bang?

Interesting, I might give it a go since it's some more SP play though I wonder if they'll ever do a new ME specially for the next gen systems. As far as I remember if you get the extra little bit in the ending then you know they can do more. Also the way the old guy and the child talk after the credits where the kid asks for another story and the dude says ok. Wishful thinking I know but I'd be onboard for another one if done right. Though the way 3 ends I suppose if they did another series they'd have to actually pick one of the endings as the de facto canon ending and go with that one.

There's going to be an ME4, that's already been confirmed. I think it's using Frostbite 2 as well. But it'll be in the ME universe, not another Shepard story.
