As we’ve just reported, the Mass Effect 3 DLC is coming out on June 26th. Well, on further inspection, that date is true of PC and Xbox 360 versions of the game around the world. It’s even true for North American PlayStation 3s.
But if you’re a PlayStation 3 Mass Effect 3 player anywhere else in the world, you’ll have to wait an extra week. The release date for PlayStation 3 DLC outside of SCEA’s region is July 4th.
There’s no explanation for this delay offered and, let’s be honest, no explanation that would possibly assuage fans who will see it as something of a kick in the teeth for the platform.
I’ll go ahead and guess that BioWare and EA will officially say that it’s because of localisation or different approaches to approving DLC for the stores in other territories. In which case, perhaps it’s not all BioWare’s fault – they might have the content all ready to go and simply be awaiting lengthy approval processes from Sony regions.
Regardless of the causes for the delay, I’m sure it’s not going to please a lot of you.
