Mass Effect 3 Extended, Why?

10 Replies 252 Views Created 24-06-2012

The ME3 Extended ending is finally coming 27th for the Us, but we EU ps3 users are being made to wait an extra week because of Sony Eu. Thats until the 4th of July. Why?


Heres the quote from Bioware saying its Sony Eu and not there fault.

 

"Our first party partners can have differing certification and release timelines depending on the region, complexity of the content, and release window.
It's not like we purposefully said "Oh, European PS3, we'll launch that a week or so later just for kicks". That's not how it works. "

This seems really stupid on the part of Sony Eu as spoilers will get out. Why can't be have it a day late like usual?

What are your thoughts on the matter?

Someone will probably upload a video of the extended ending on to YouTube, so I'll just watch it on there.

 

Saves waiting for it to download.

Spoilers for what? You should already know the ending by now and all this does is explain it a little better/differently. Nothing has been changed as previously stated.

Anyway EU always lags behind because of the many different languages and laws the developers have to work around.

Thats not the point, the point is that Sony Eu has decided that we have to wait a week longer than everyone else for NO good reason!

I gave you the most viable reason there is. They have to regionalise the game to fit in with the 20+ different EU languages and laws. America speaks one main language and has the one law and requires half the QA testing EU has to go through.

It happens with 90% of the games released these days, especially ones that aren't made in EU in the first place.

That's Xbox though and has nothing to do with what Sony does. No one knows for sure the reason, Its just the way it works sometimes.

Yup, totally what rooky91 said.

Only EU PS3 owners will have to wait because Sony messed up.

The game will be spoiled everywhere.

If I get spoiled I want a refund or something

But surely if you've played the game then there is nothing to spoil?

 

You already know what happened, nothing is going to change its just an extended explanation of your actions and their outcome, not a new ending like people seem to be gravely mistaken about.

Good luck with that. You wont get any word from SCEE especially for just a weeks wait.
