If you've been waiting on the opportune moment to grab some new games for your mobile, now may be the time to jump on that: EA just dropped the prices of both Mass Effect: Infiltrator and NBA Jam down to $0.99. Previously, those games would've set you back $7 and $5, respectively; that's a pretty decent savings!

We're not really sure what the reason is, or why these two games were singled out, but we're also not going to question a good thing. So, if you need a new way to waste some time, want to kill some things, or just want to play your own version of the NBA Finals (*cough* GO HEAT *cough*), now's the time to get in on the action, because we're not sure how long this deal will last.

    i really hate to say anything good about EA because they're such a piece of sh*t company, but NBA Jam is pretty awesome.  Only wish I would have gotten it now, just so they didn't have my other $4.. they don't deserve it.

      Or Tegra 2 Devices....BS!!!!!!!!!!

      • RandomRant

        It's working and compatible with my Galaxy Tab 10.1

        So it's just your particular device, not all Tegra 2 devices.

          • RandomRant

            Yeah I am, I'm running aokp 38. Maybe that's why :0

          • http://twitter.com/MothyWing Tim Wing

            Hmm Im running a custom HC rom though, tahts the 1 frustrating thing about android games sometimes.

        • Hiram Lester

          Same here. Compatible with my Sony Tablet S (ICS), Motorola Atrix (Gingerbread), and Viewsonic GTablet (CM7)... all Tegra 2 devices.

    Well, I bought both of those last week. Scum move to put infiltrator on sale when it has only been released a month...

  • lbrfabio

  • Wayne Randall

    Why the f*** is Mass Effect not compatible with my SGS2? I'm running a AOKP variant Oo

    • Mikey_H

      compatible and works fine on ICS GS2 (stock but rooted)

      • http://twitter.com/TheGermian Germian

        Well, it doesn't work with any AOKP variant, it seems. But thanks :)

    Mass Effect crashes on my EVO LTE right after the intro graphics. :-(

    • TlKRnKnot

      Same here. Been contacting EA and no response. Pretty sure the Evo LTE can handle the game.

    Was able to get NBA Jam both on my EVO OG & Touchpad, but only Mass Effect on the Touchpad. Still, great deals not to pass up!

    • meetloaf13

      You able to get NBA Jam running on your TP?  I keep getting a Server Error when attempting to update content right after splash screen.

      Have you changed your Device ID in the build.prop or flashed Rohan's mod?

      • http://twitter.com/alxalejandro393 Alex Esparza-Sandy

        Sorry responding so late, I flashed Rohan's mod. No problems for me.

        • meetloaf13

           No problem, thanks for replying =]

          I just flashed ROhan's mod and no love.

          Which ROM and DPI are you on?  Did you also do ZeppelinRox mods?

          • http://twitter.com/alxalejandro393 Alex Esparza-Sandy

            I'm on CM9 Alpha 2 and my DPI is 160. Don't use ZeppelinRox mods. At first it didn't work, but once I transfer the NBA Jam Data from my friend's T-Mobile SGSII it worked perfect.

          • meetloaf13

            Interesting, did you restore the data using titanium or manually?

            Any way I could get my hands hands-on some working days?

            Thanks!

    Mass Effect was part of EA's Father's Day sale on iOS, maybe they've only just remembered to put them on sale for Android?

  • sssgadget

    EA will never get my money!!! Good games but recent fiasco after Origin and all are hard to forget.

  • CJ Walker

    Hmmm... not compatible with the prime. Do I waste the $1 (by purchasing it for my G2) in hopes of future compatibility? Because I remember kicking myself for not getting Modern Combat 3 when it was on sale due to incompatibility ... and then eventually becoming compatible.

    Decisions, decisions.

  • Nexuss96G

    Grand theft auto and sonic 4 are also 99¢ right now.

  • Charlesfrank

    Yeah, they have to put Mass effect on sale because it's not compatible with most stuff out there...totally stupid move.

  • Himmat Singh

    I give up on getting ME:Infiltrator. It works like a charm on my A510, except from a few glitches that even other owners are complaining about. Why won't they let me purchase it from the Play Store? Seems like ME is incompatible with a whole lot of devices...

  • Deaconclgi

    Too bad neither of these games are officially compatible with my T-Mobile HTC One S.
    A shame really...does EA even care?

    I emailed EA about server errors with Real Racing and they replied back by telling me:

    "Hello,

    Really....their reply didn't fix anything. Seriously, why have a contact link in the Play Market if all they are going to do is refer you to their website Knowledge Base.

    With all that being said, I do enjoy NBA Jam and Mass Effect on my GSII. Jam was bought full price but I bought ME on sale today. Great games, poor customer service.

  • Drayon

    I can't buy Mass effect infiltrator on my htc desire (ok), asus transformer prime or htc one x (dafuq, these have enough power to run the game twice).
    And yes, I have looked at both versions.

  • tBs_Battousai

    But you can't buy it in the UK :(

  • Andrew

    I can't get Mass Effect because my ICS Remix ROM shows my Galaxy S2 as being an unsupported device :'(

  • http://twitter.com/Matteysan Mattey

    They sold them cheaper because they don't work half the time. I got NBA Jam & it fails to work, Server error 5002 all the time when starting the game. EA's support is none existent also.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Fomaus Denis Fomaus Kronika

    I got server error 5002 at all EA games...Please help
