The lights are on
Update: Sony said it's looking to remedy the situation. "We are currently working together with EA and BioWare on an implementation to bring Mass Effect 3 multiplayer weekends to PS3," a representative said in a statement sent to Game Informer.
BioWare's Operation Resurgence weekend challenge is not currently available to PlayStation 3 users.
The promotion, which begins this Friday, is only available on Xbox 360 and PC. Users who downloaded the free multiplayer DLC Resurgence Pack get a 10% experience bonus when playing on the new maps: Firebase: Condor and Firebase: Hydra. BioWare says Sony has not approved the promotion
This Operation is currently available to Xbox 360 and PC users only, and will run from Friday, April 13th at 5PM PST to Monday, April 16th 5AM PST. 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.
Game Informer has contacted Sony for an update. We'll update this post if we hear back.
Sadly I've gotten used to things like this. I bought the PS3 version of ME 3 because I don't care to pay MS money just to play a basic game online. Not to mention I don't have anyone on my 360 friend list. I'd rather game with people I know than people I don't know.
I wish Sony would wise up and work something out. I don't know what the issue is, but whatever the reason is, we're the ones getting shafted.
Thank you for contacting Sony, GI. I sent a couple tweets to Playstation, not Sony and so far haven't (and I almost know for sure I won't) heard back yet. It's really freaking annoying that PS3 players are getting screwed over with all this.
Really Sony? What's the issue here? It's Bioware's game to offer the content the way they want to. Is it because it's also available to 360 and PC users? If so, that's pretty damn pathetic of you and only serves to anger people.
Wow. Sony needs to take the stick outta their ass and work with others
Why are the bots here if this has nothing to do with them????
