BioWare – Sony Won’t Let Us Run Mass Effect 3 Weekend Events On PlayStation 3

Posted on April 12, 2012 AT 07:36am

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.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
