In the past several weeks following the release of Mass Effect 3, PC and Xbox 360 gamers have been treated to multiple weekend events for the game’s multiplayer mode, which offered the chance to snag some rare items while gaining a boost in experience.
Unfortunately for PlayStation 3 owners, they were left in the dust for all of the Mass Effect 3 mutliplayer promotions–and BioWare says that Sony is to blame for that.
Last week, BioWare said in its announcement of the recent ‘Operation Resurgence’ Mass Effect 3 mutliplayer promotion that the events wouldn’t be available on the PlayStation 3, and the developer didn’t say when, if at all, that would change.
“Unfortunately, we are not yet able to offer our Multiplayer Challenge weekends on PlayStation 3. Sony has not yet approved the promotion. 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.”
On the bright side, that may soon change. Following reports on the absence of multiplayer events in the PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 3, Sony sent over a response to Shacknews, saying that the company is working to address the situation.
“We are currently working together with EA and BioWare on an implementation to bring Mass Effect 3 multiplayer weekends to PS3,” the company told Shacknews.
We still don’t know when PlayStation 3 owners will be able to take part in any future multiplayer events for Mass Effect 3, nor do we know if there are any plans to make up for all of that lost time. Still, I suppose it’s good to know that Sony is working on it.
