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.
i dont blame sony they trying to get exclusive stuff for playstation users which i hope they do
Hurry the f*** up Sony!
Come on Sony!!!
can't say I am surprised about this. It sucks indeed for all the PS3 platform gamers I am sure. I got to say the multiplayer is an EPIC experience in the time I have played it on the XBOX 360, and to hear that PS3 gamers cant enjoy the full potential of this game is crazy. I feel sorry for BIOWARE for having to put up with this. I feel like SONY wants to do their own thing with this game, but in doing so they are making a lot of angry fans in the process.
The way I look at it is, if a company cannot appreciate the game/software you are distributing under them, then find others who will care. I have heard many stories such as this where games are losing their appreciation value due to lack of handling due to SONY's PS3. The gamers' choose to play the game how it is intended to be played, not the developers of the console(s). I can say I actually feel for SONY fans on this one.
