Next Mass Effect game arrives late 2014 to mid-2015, BioWare says [UPDATE: It’s fake]

We've officially known that BioWare is working on another Mass Effect game since studio co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk announced their departure, but so far details have been few and far between. Details are still pretty scarce, but we're finding out today that the game will ship in late-2014 at the earliest but possibly as late as mid-2015. That news comes from a GamerSyndrome interview with a BioWare employee, who remained anonymous until Eurogamer was told by EA that it was Mass Effect 3 producer Mike Gamble doing the talking.

Black Ops II PC discs surprise players with Mass Effect 2 data

Black Ops II PC discs surprise players with Mass Effect 2 data

Well this is something of a hairy situation: we're getting reports that claim some Black Ops II PC discs actually contain data for Mass Effect 2 instead of, you know, the game advertised on the front of the box. One Redditor has compiled a list of links that all lead to complaints of these Mass Effect 2 discs in disguise, and YouTube zeroiez has captured the rather confusing mix up on video for the whole world to see. Sounds like someone made a pretty big mistake.

Mass Effect 3 new ending hits June 26

The brand new ending for the game Mass Effect 3 demanded by fans across the world has officially been announced for release for June 26. Controversy surrounded the original ending of the game when disturbed gamers found that a whole lot of what they'd been hoping to learn about the story's ending was not answered by the time the final credits rolled and because no matter what they did during the game, the ending was essentially the same. With this update, the game will be getting an "Extended Cut" of the ending with a lot more of a player-decided outcome.

Mass Effect 3 multiplayer challenges finally approved for PS3

Mass Effect 3 multiplayer challenges finally approved for PS3

After months of injustice, the same online multiplayer challenges that Mass Effect 3 players on the Xbox 360 and PC have been taking for granted are now confirmed for the PS3. BioWare recently confirmed that it was because of Sony, not BioWare, that these online challenges were not being offered through the PlayStation Network. Sony responded to say it was looking into figuring out a solution.

New Mass Effect 3 multiplayer event reminds PS3 players of injustice

A new Mass Effect 3 multiplayer event has just been announced, and in the wake of the tension that has been struck over the fact that Sony for some reason has blocked such events on the PS3, it's drawing a heated reaction. The new event is called Operation Exorcist. It tasks players with killing no fewer than one million Cerberus Phantom creatures. If they complete the challenge, they win a Victory pack.

Sony PS3 Mass Effect 3 multiplayer events may be coming soon

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.

EA’s Mass Effect 3 online multiplayer events barred on PS3

EA’s Mass Effect 3 online multiplayer events barred on PS3

The online component of EA and Bioware smash hit Mass Effect 3 is a little bit muddled on the PS3. 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.

EA’s Mass Effect 3 far outselling on Xbox 360 over PS3

EA’s Mass Effect 3 far outselling on Xbox 360 over PS3

Mass Effect 3 will hardly be the first video game to have sold more units on the Xbox 360 than the PS3. There are more Xbox 360 consoles in households so that simply stands to reason. But few games are being outsold on the Microsoft platform by a margin as large as this one. In fact, the Xbox 360 version of Mass Effect 3 is moving units at a rate of four-to-one over the PS3 edition.
