Sony working on Mass Effect 3 multiplayer solution

Mass Effect 3 has gotten a steady stream of special multiplayer weekends on PC and Xbox 360, but the PlayStation 3 has been left in the cold. BioWare recently outed Sony as the ones gumming up the works, but it sounds like a solution is in place now.

"We are currently working together with EA and BioWare on an implementation to bring Mass Effect 3 multiplayer weekends to PS3," a Sony representative told Shacknews.

I hope they come to some kind of arrangement soon - I'd like to be able to take part in these operations...

Well guess we cant blame EA anymore.

You can always blame EA. For anything.

Wonder all those people who said it wasn't sony's fault think about this.

I think "fault" is the wrong word to use here though. From what I hear, the reason the weekends haven't been on Playstation was due to security concerns about the implementation that Bioware was using for these weekends. If I were to speculate, I'd think Sony don't want to repeat last years events, and I'd think Bioware didn't consider the new guidelines regarding the network. So neither and both are to blame, but I guess it boils down to a miscommunication.

So we should expect this kind of delay every time something like this happens.

I understand the need for security but I also understand that nothing is secured as long as its connected to the net.

Nothing's ever completely secure, and I don't think we should expect this kind of delay every time. The new implementation of security in PSN is quite recent, so it's not unlikely that there's a few games that are going to have problems with it, as information is outdated.

I guess it boils down to how much a studio deals with Sony during the development process, instead of after it.

Let me rephrase, I wonder what all those people who said that it was bioware's FAULT think about this.

MrDead2432d ago

The way people go on about this anyone would think Sony planed and wanted this to happen. That’s kids for you.
