Mass Effect 3 Demo Available Early

A new mini game has provided a way to download Mass Effect 3's upcoming demo a few days early.

By playing a short Facebook game, fans can win a code for early access to the demo. (Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

They should have it so that people who pre ordered get it early. The completely random matching is stupid.
FrightfulActions  +   1240d ago
I couldn't agree more - those who preordered it should be the ones who get early access, not BF3 players or Facebook winners.
DeFFeR  +   1240d ago
Wait... BF3 players get it early? How?

@DeFFeR
This has been covered on N4G already, but the post is still in the pending category. Here is the EA statement on this matter. http://www.ea.com/news/mass...

And for a more detailed walkthrough of that, here is the link N4G contributor "ali711arab" (unusual name) shared in his pending post that is still awaiting approval. http://www.watchvideogames....

Hope this helps.

"We're sorry there are no codes left." I paid 80 fucking dollars for the CE and didn't get any type of early access? That's fucking bullshit man! On top of that shit we get to play the MP early since we bought BF3?

FUCK THAT! Who the FUCK is buying ME3 for the MP?

Stop wasting everyone's time and just release the demo then
tigertron  +   1240d ago
Not just for the Xbox, but the PS3 aswell.

I may have a 360 but I'm getting ME3 on the PS3 so I want to play the PS3 version instead.

is there a difference between the two?
Megaton  +   1240d ago
@Shang-Long - I think the only difference is that you can't import ME1 decisions, aside from the major ones given to you in the comic. I would never play ME3 on a platform that doesn't have ME1.
tigertron  +   1240d ago
@ Megaton

I have ME1 on the PC and ME2 on the PS3.

Sure, some little things in ME1 may affect ME3 but I think the biggest decisions that will have a large impact on ME3 will be the decisions you make in the ME2 comic i.e. saving/killing the Rachni Queen.
Megaton  +   1240d ago
All those little things are important to me. I love seeing old, minor characters in the next installment. You miss out on interaction with characters like Conrad Verner, Gianna Parasini, and the other couple dozen people you help along the way in ME1.

You guys really can't wait 2 more days?
Baka-akaB  +   1240d ago
Actually i dont even plan on trying the demo . What for ? i know i'll get the game .

I just find it ridiculous to have people jump through mini games hoops when they can just release it , be it on one exclusive or all platforms .

I'll just play the demo to get the Weapons for Kingdoms of Amalur ^^
WitWolfy  +   1240d ago
I already pre ordered the ME3 N7 CE, I already know its gonna be brilliant! No need to play a demo to remind me

"Stop wasting everyone's time and just release the demo then "

But that would be the convenient thing to do. Why would they wanna do that lol

The mini game is a joke.
SneeringImperialist  +   1241d ago
How the fudge are you supposed to win this mini game lol?
nuttyjawa  +   1241d ago
it's just completely random lol
Lior  +   1241d ago
Ps3 codes as well?
Blacktric  +   1240d ago
Xbox 360 exclusive unfortunately. And it doesn't require any wits to win. It's completely random each time you try.
Newsman  +   1241d ago
Fail, bet EA is behind this.
ziggurcat  +   1240d ago
well, obviously... it's published by EA.
bahabeast  +   1241d ago

PHIBALNATION  +   1240d ago

bahabeast  +   1240d ago

AngelicIceDiamond  +   1240d ago
You have to play a Facebook game and randomly win access to the demo? This FB, Twitter promotion stuff in our games is getting ridiculous.
Lord_Sloth  +   1240d ago
The fact that this code is only available for the 360 while the game is multi-plat is kind of annoying.
SageHonor  +   1240d ago
Yeah alot of PC and PS3 players were pissed in the forums. Fuck facebook though
despair  +   1240d ago
its only a few days early, we all get it on the 14th.
mayberry  +   1240d ago
facebook uses microsoft advertizing software exclusively. Dont know if that has anything to do with 360 exclusive demo rights? http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...

No codes left
I got a message that no more codes were available....

so much for that; Captain Shepherd will have to do without me.
Tyrannikos  +   1240d ago
That also happened yesterday. It looks like they refill it with codes.

But honestly, who gives a crap. I'm waiting those two days rather than letting them know this kind of annoying stuff is okay by buying into it.
ziggurcat  +   1240d ago
still no codes :(
lex-1020  +   1240d ago
Damn Out of Codes
greatcrusader44  +   1240d ago
Somehow won a code on that fb minigame yesterday and played the demo today and I was very pleased with it, combat is very fun and the music was phenomenal, march 6 can't come soon enough.
munish23  +   1240d ago
Lucky bastard. I was trying for a while to get a code, but I just gave up. If what you say is true, I am even more hyped than before.
Zephol  +   1240d ago
what hell? this sucks
boyzilla  +   1240d ago
Facebook game?! Early access!? Wait a minute... who cares? Facebook sucks
