Apparently Sony is working on getting the online multiplayer events for Mass Effect 3, which have until now only been live on the Xbox 360 and PC, to the PS3 console. A lot of hubbub was made over the last several days after it was revealed that it was Sony’s fault, not game developer Bioware’s, because for some inexplicable reason Sony was preventing the events from happening on the PlayStation Network.
To help keep things interesting in the online multiplayer world, developer Bioware has been running numerous promotions, such as the ability to gain extra XP or receiving bonuses for completing various tasks. However, perhaps unknown to those playing the game on the Xbox 360 or PC, none of this stuff has been making its way to the PS3 version of the game. For example, the most recent event involves giving players a 10% XP bonus to anyone who plays on the latest downloadable maps, but only on Xbox 360 and PC.
Bioware recently wrote a blog post explaining that the only reason these events weren’t happening on the PS3 was because of Sony. Now, Sony has come forth to say, “For example, the most recent event involves giving players a 10% XP bonus to anyone who plays on the latest downloadable maps, but only on Xbox 360 and PC.” We’ll see if that actually materializes into anything. It is good to see, though, that Sony is responding to the outrage that this issue has caused among Mass Effect fans.
