Developer BioWare has moved to shed light on the lack of multiplayer challenge events for the PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 3, laying the blame firmly at Sony’s doorstep.
PC and Xbox 360 gamers are able to participate in Operation Resurgence this week, which coincides with the release of Mass Effect 3’s first chunk of multiplayer DLC, the Resurgence Pack. Those who take part in the event will be given a free Reserves Pack featuring one new Resurgence character the next week.
However, PS3 owners have been left out in the cold, apparently because Sony has yet to give the event the green light.
"Unfortunately, we are not yet able to offer our Multiplayer Challenge weekends on PlayStation 3. Sony has not yet approved the promotion," said BioWare. " 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."
