THE BUZZ: BioWare has blamed Sony for the lack of weekend multiplayer events for Mass Effect 3, on PlayStation 3 . PC and Xbox 360 players are getting an Operation Resurgence event this weekend, but PlayStation 3 fans will have to sit this one out.

These events have been running every weekend since launch and have granted players bonus items and experience, however the PlayStation 3 is yet to be included in any of them. Until now BioWare hasn’t mentioned why this is the case, but now they seem to be pointing the finger directly at Sony.

“Unfortunately, we are not yet able to offer our Multiplayer Challenge weekends on PlayStation 3. Sony has not yet approved the promotion,” EA community manager Eduardo Vasconcellos wrote on the official BioWare blog. “We continue to work with them to find a compromise, but until then, Sony will not allow us to run the same Multiplayer Challenges on the PlayStation 3 that we run on Xbox 360 and PC.”

EGM’s TAKE: It seems really odd that Sony would be blocking these events on PlayStation 3. It’s not like the team is offering anything for free that would usually cost money to purchase, and the only other bonus is experience. Double XP events happen all the time on the console so why is Mass Effect 3’s any different? Hopefully BioWare or Sony can clear this up in the future.
