Mortal Kombat: PS3 Demo Release and Xbox 360 Frustration

 

By Posted 4 Mar 2011, 04:10

We informed you yesterday that a demo would be releasing for Mortal Kombat on the PS3, but we wanted to expand on that a little further, as it seems like the PS3 copy of the game is definitely favored by NetherRealm Studios than other platforms.

The game will also be coming to the Xbox 360, while a PC version is also thought to be a possibility. The thing to note here though, is that there will be no Xbox 360 demo release for the time being, as the way things stand at the moment – the demo is a PS3 exclusive on March 15.

Don’t forget that the PS3 also gets 3D support and an exclusive extra character by the way of Kratos from the God of War series. So far, we haven’t heard any information on a possible Xbox 360-only character, so it may turn out that the Xbox 360 version gets nothing.

How do you feel about this? As an Xbox 360 owner, are you a bit frustated about the PS3 favoritism or not?

  • Ryan

    Ps3 owners have to live with Xbox favouritism all the time, so it's nice for a change to not be messed about or have the short end of the stick. This is just Mortal Kombat, PS3 owners have had problems with cod games, GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption, so I think Xbox users will get over it.

    • Jamiester

      As an Xbox owner it is a bit frustrating, but i agree with you on this on

    • Alan Ng

      That is very true Ryan… one for the PS3 me thinks!

    • Logan

      I agree somewhat, but all you guys dont have is R.D.R and Halo… You guys have MAG, Infamous, and now Kratos. I personally believe that too many game developers show favoritism toward PS3. I mean sure, I'll get over it, and I'm not going to cry, but it does get annoying

    • StolenJokes

      Are those games "Mortal Kombat"? No. I would gladly trade all that shit for a working demo on the XBox 360.

      PS3 owners acting like they get shafted? Please. You guys got tons of sweet titles that we don't.

    • Mr Decimation

      yeh but i can see why its annoying, 360 owners pay for their membership.. fair enuf if your ps3+ but free ps3 online users shouldnt have it before paying 360 users…

  • marhorn

    Yeah it kinda sucks, but then again so will the game! Marvel vs Capcom 3 easily owns this and bring on Street fighter x Tekken!

    • jack

      ok i seriously dont know how the fuck you think tekken and sf is better than mk…..MORTAL KOMBAT started the fighting game franchise and anyone that says they prefer sf or tekken just makes me think of maybe a 13 – 15 year old who doesnt understand that mk is too epic for the kids who didnt grow up playing the game and another thing, mortal kombat is the most realistic fighting game i have ever seen, sure theres magic and stuff but they never go too over the top with is MORTAL KOMBAT… Ryu VS Scorpion…who will win…oh dm ryu's a pussy so he ran away to his mama :)

      • ChickensHavEyes

        Wow really are you fucking crazy Street fighter 2 started all that shit, Mortal Kombat wasn't even made before Street fighter 2, probably the only difference between the games is fatalities, and your whole comment sounds like your a 13 to 15 year old who doesn't understand fighters

    • BISCUITS

      are your stupid kid?

    • AJFatality

      I literally just shat my pants laughing at your comment kid. Now go buy me some new underwear! GAHhhhhhHh

    • You Suck

      Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is trash, forget you and that other crap. Mortal Kombat is going to rule ALL.

    • Italian

      Marvel vs Capcom 3 was the worse fighting game ever made

    • guest

      syke. Marvel vs Capcom 3 can't hold a candle to this game.

  • kyle

    it is about time developers start to realize the benefit of making PS3 the lead platform. PSN is a much more "open source" for developers. it is much easier for developers to patch/update games, M$ has a lot a red tape to cross before a developer can put anything on Live. to Ryan: There really isn't a favouritisive (neither one of spelled that right), m$ just uses alot of money paying off developers and advertising instead of developing. in example: m$ pent nearly 500 million on the advertising for Kinect. To put that into perspective, this is roughly the cost of research and development of Kinect itself. Epic games is another example of a paid off developer. currently though, the PS3 install that is just behind the 360 even though it was released a full year later. the point: M$ doesnt have enough money to pay every developer off anymore. A developer that decides to make an exclusive title is alienating 50mil potential buyers. M$ just cant compete with the logic. As for Sony, instead of paying of developers and spending gobs of money on advertising, that money is used for R & D of new products and tech, and creating unique exclusives. However, i have to question some of Sony's marketing decision. How many Move commercials do you see these days? None. I don't understand why either, it is fantastic hardware and I would love to see it have huge install base. Ok, back to the question at hand though: no, i dont care that PS3 gets this exclusive content

    • Jesse

      I own both, it is very annoying that u have to be a playstation plus member to get the demo. Im not paying for a sub par online service. If they had the caliber service that live has i would pay them $100 a year. As of now its hard enuff just joining my frends on psn to play games.

      • jamie

        I too own both and I believe in order to have a non biast opinion you’d have too. So as for my thought, I believe it’s a give and take for both systems.

        The playstation plus membership is a COMPLETE rip-off, since if you purchase a subscription it secretly signs you up for a renewal as well as making it transfer funds into your psn account when your subscription ends. So either way they are getting the money unless you unsubscribe to the renewal and temperaraly disable the automatic funds transfer until after the renewal date. Also when you pay for PSplus, any dowload you perchase whith the PSplus discount becomes UNUSEABLE while not a PSplus member. Which means you have to perchase the game/add-on/etc at full price again to be able to use it while not a member. I was ferious when I read about such a thing and deleted both.

        As for Xbox 360 its one time buy for a gold membership and when it ends, in 12 months or whatever you bought, it’s up to you to renew it. (unless you sign up for an automatic renewal, which if you didn’t expect that to happen than maybe you should have read what you were doing) As for games and such once you purchase it, its yours forever. Unless they take it off of XBLA like Doom :(

        Back to the topic, I honestly wish that system creaters would agree on more topics since its the consumer who gets to enjoy the games and has nothing to do with MS nor PS. Sure it might draw more attention, by lets say entering kratos into MK, but yet who’s gonna SERIOUSLY go out and buy a system just for a few exclusive games and added content. I wish the systems wars would just end already, but that’s like asking for world peace.

        So bottom line, each system has their ups and downs. I truly believe its unfair all around. It should always be semi fair, like back in the day. Soul Caliber 2 had an exclusive charactor for each system: PS2 (Heihachi), Xbox (Spawn), Gamecube (Link). It wasn’t like PS2 got an exclusive charactor (like kratos), while Xbox got an outfit.(like avatar outfit) I mean come on now, can’t we just agree that it should be fair regardless. I mean dang, everyone of us is paying $60, $100, or even the $120 for tournament edition.

        • matt

          if you search Xbox.com, you can get anything you've ever paid for back. I have all paid games I deleted back.

      • jamie

        Sorry dude I ment to post that as a comment, not a reply message.

      • alex

        i agree with you jesster, live is worth the money, there's a reason we pay for it.. and since we pay for it, we should get at least the same services as psn, if not then more. either way, the games gonna be sick.

        ps: mileena will kill you

    • brandon

      The only reason xbox isnt getting any exclusive character is because they havent found any characters that would fit in to MK and ps3 only got an exclusive demo is because they payed them to give em a demo first.

    • WorldisStupid

      Wow, so much shit in one coment, thats really good. What the hell tells u that its easier to make games for ps3? Because of that open source its harder to produce games for ps3. Did you ever read any game tests? 85% of the games that are produced are running better on xbox then on ps3 and you want tro make it to the lead platform? You have no idea what youre talking there. Sony will never get a well optimized network as Microsoft, how they should, its Microsoft man. Next thing, all people telling sony that the pad is shit, what makes sony? Nothing, "our pad is great", sure lets make it to the lead platform. At psn i pay for everything, for download 2,50, for a screenshot 2,50, for a red nose 2,50, for an addon minimum 5$, doesnt matter how small that addon is. That all you get for free on XBox Live!!! Bigger Addons or complete games, ok, you have to pay for, but little updates and mini addons shouldnt cost money like in psn.

    • Richard

      … "more open source" TO HACKERS!!!!!

  • VinTheDean

    It's almost like the iOS vs Droid argument when it comes to Live vs PSN. You have Apple/M$ with a very restrictive network and process to get things in. You have to jump through their hoops to play with them and cost (Gold Subscription). But those that do have it love it to death.

    Then you have Droid/PS3. Open Source type format. Great for developers but you can get a somewhat inconsistent experience when it comes to each game. This is mainly due to the OS an the network maturing and developing their standards.

    I kind of the have the best of both world. I have the iPhone and a PS3. So i totally get both arguments.

    But to answer to question, it's like this. PS3 Players had to deal with this since the PS3's release (and still do to this day. COD Maps and Crysis 2 Demo anyone) Countless of exclusive content and perks for Multi platform games. So it's nice to get see it go the other way.

    • StolenJokes

      Are those games "Mortal Kombat"? No. I would gladly trade all that shit for a working demo on the XBox 360.

  • rock ninja

    i think that this console war is retarded. devs should make their games from the pc and then do a port for all consoles(ecept the wii which meeds speical coding). if they did then most games would be good

  • anon

    Don't care for the exclusive character or 3D support of the PS3 but it's kind of a let down that the 360 won't even get a demo, oh well. Lots of games don't have demos so.

    • Alan Ng

      The 360 still may get a demo, they just haven't said when yet.

  • XboxGOON

    WTF WE PAY £40 A YEAR WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET A DEMO ATLEAST XBOX NEED TO COME CORRECT AND START DOING THERE JOB

    • Krykan

      it's not Microsoft's fault that NetherRealm didn't make an xbox demo, dumbass.

      • Guest

        actually it is, the demo would have been made if microsoft would have asked/paid.

  • drastic

    well xbox did get the crisis 2 beta so im not really complianing. but it would have been nice if the mortal kombat demo wasnt just for psn plus. i got all excited until i saw the that ugly as orange downlaod button

  • BennyBoyz

    Fucking ps3 fanboys.

  • caolan

    screw ps3 favouritism the reason why xbox owners are favourited the odd time is becaus we pay for it ! I don't ps3 players are paying anything extra for this are they ?

    • Robert

      Yes they are the demo was for PSN+ which is $50 a year.

    • XSevenSonata

      You don’t need an Xbox 360 Gold Subscription. A Gold Subscription only allows you to play games live online with other players. You get access to Demos “one” week before Silver Subscription users do (Silver Subscriptions still get access just later) And Gold Subscription has a few special features such as Netflix and Last.Fm Radio. I own both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and I enjoy both for specific things since you can’t get everything with both obviously.

  • carlos

    WTF I actually PAY to play online and they don't give it to us as well? I think they should give it to everyone and let it be fair. This console war is complete and utter bullshit. We're all working hard people who just want to have some fun, only to be slapped in the face. As a mortal Kombat fan, I'm pissed off.

    • Logan

      AMEN… who cares whether you have a PS3 or 360? Everyone wants to just play the dang game. Especially after the last MK let me down

    • shadowshnull

      aye to that (shadowshnull on xbl)

  • Rizzle

    I actually saw on a mortal kombat website (hope it was official) that the xbox and regular ps3 (not plus) will be getting the demo today march 15..I looked this morning on xbox but it wasn't there. not sure what times they do their updates, but I'm hoping it's there when I'm off work! I pre-ordered the tournament edition and can't wait! and I could care less about the extra character ps3 is getting. I love mortal kombat been playing since i was a kid. That's why I got the tournament addition (fight stick). Will be like the arcades again, but now on a 47 inch 1080p high def TV! Plus Baraka and Scorpion are in the game. My favorites so I'm good!

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/r0adkill24 WheeztR0adster

    As an xbox360 owner, I’m a bit pissed that there is no word on a demo release, but I don’t hate PS3 for it. Xbox360 owners have been getting alot before PS3 owners in the way of DLC, demo’s, and other stuff. So, I am not hating on PS3 owners, but it would’ve been nice if xbox got the demo the same day PSN regulars got it. Oh well there is hope, since they said that it will be available on xbox “soon”. I hope we have it by the end of this week/next week!!!

    • gigga

      we pay for it, we deserve it. PS3 sucks SO MUCH. Any shooter on xbox > PS3 purely because they have the crappiest non-sensored controller ever made, and the live servers are about a million times better than PSN

  • Jamie

  • Andy Watters

    Its okay if XBOX 360 owners don't get the exclusive character + the demo because in the end we will all get to play it! Just 1 month and 3 days left till the FULL VERSION is out! Yeeee KLASSIC SCORPION!

  • Elias

    As an Xbox 360 owner and long-time MK fan, Warner’s favoritism towards Sony is upsetting. I was most obvious with Batman: Arkham Asylum. However, I would like to point out that it’s difficult to compare the early release of overpriced DLC to full-on exclusive content. I feel like Xbox fans are really getting shafted here. And to be fair, the reason for Xbox’s past exclusivity may be do to the PS3 simply not proving itself as a console until recently.

  • dave

    I think its a bunch of BS its a game its for both consoles so both should get a demo at the same time why not the game is being released at the same time on April 19th for both so what's with the mind games and pissing people off – iv been a fan of mortal kombat for 20 years and to see noobs get to play it before me is kinda gay – but what ever it comes out in a month so I won't care then. ED BOON and NRS still ROCK and are much appreciated.

    • erik

      Thank you for not bashing the developers. WB is the publisher so they are the ones to blame for us 360 owners not having a demo.

      • tomasz

        It has nothing to do with Warner, Netherrealm Studios are the ones that asslick Sony so much. No wonder Cliffy B can't stand Ed Boon.

  • The Philosopher

    I hate it when any platform gets special treatment, it's not fair to anyone.

    And screw you midway for excluding Xbox 360 like this, I can't afford a PS3 so why are we being hung out to dry like this?

  • iSwaG TALENTS

    on other websites it says ''the xbox will be getting the demo soon'' but if it dosent we still get gears of war 3 beta and if you have seen the guys from netherreaml were playing the game on the xbox 360 at the E3 thing and its on youtube so all the videos i have seen they were playing xbox so PSN can say what every they want it looks like they like xbox better

    • shadowshnull

      i dont play halo, gears of war or crysis, i have played mk since the first one on ps1, now i have an xbox and im screwed, ms is pushing furry titles like kinectimals meanwhile im stuck with the kinect until the star wars game comes out … i think of selling the box if kinect drivers for pc are available (the official ones)

  • Rokman101

    I own an xbox 360 and there is favoritism for either xbox or ps3 all the time i wish that demos would come out at the same time for both and that there was no favoritism. Also with kratos im pretty sure they will throw in a bonus character for xbox.

    • noneya

      I don't want an exclusive character like kratos. besides who would they give xbox owners that would even remotely fit in the game?

  • Emo kid

    I think it is ridiculous. PS3 gets killzone, Twisted metal, Metal Gear solid, God of war, and ohter things. The only reason why xbox gets halo and gears of war is cause MICROSOFT is the publisher of thier games. And now we don't get the bonus charecter or the demo? that is ridiculous. xboxx users pay more so we should get EVerthing and Ps3 should get less. Or at least give us tthe demo

    • Matt

      SONY owns the rights to all those games dude. That's why they're exclusive. Microsoft owns Halo, Bango and Kazooie, Alan Wake, Perfect Dark, and a couple others I can't remember at the moment. Also, EPIC still owns GoW franchise, they're probably gonna release a trilogy for ps4 when their contract is up with Microsoft.

    • xbox360sucks

      your stupid the ps3 cost alot more to buy so shut the fuck up and stop saying you pay more when you have to pay for online bcus cost about 400$ when xbox360 low price xbox cost 200$ bucks

  • luke

    Guess its not good enough for xbox so guess wont be buying it for xbox =) congrats they just lost lots of potentials.

    • georgemmafa

      and money because people r bum now because they really wanted the demo wat losers they r dude i got ur back dude

    • Lamott

      i agree

  • Gamer5207

    Don't care about the console war. Don't care about how I pay as an xbox owner while ps3 doesn't have to. I only care that I have to go play the Mortal Kombat demo on my brother's ps3 on the small uncomfortable controllers (one of the deciding factors on whether I would buy xbox or ps3) bc it isn't released for xbox 360. I've always loved Mortal Kombat, ever since it began, but never liked tekken, and haven't liked street fighter since sega, and I can't play Mortal Kombat on my xbox until April 19th? That sucks. Someone's gotta fix that. Extra players are always cool like Kratos, but I don't mind if I don't get him or a replacement on the xbox version.

  • Robert

    Im paying for xbox live to be left out fuck that! fuck microsoft the networks may be better but it's fucking bullshit that xbox 360 aint got no MK demo i was waiting for the god dam demo forever for 360 and it may not even release a demo whats the fucking deal? ps3 should be the last to get it for the free online play paying to play should give you benefits not a pile of shit that microsoft has treated us to we get nothing just a pay fucking hole to hell!. thank you bye =].

  • Robert

    thats what im saying dude we should have the dam thing first if anyone we have to pay for subscriptions to xbox pisses me off this microsoft subscription has been getting on my nerves for a wile now because microsoft never fucking give back they never give free stuff to subscribers even a free arcade game every year would be ok. and now this MK thing this is retarded almost makes me want to buy a ps3.

  • BlondOverBlue

    I've been a huge fan of MK since 1992 (I'm old enough to remember playing it when it first hit the arcades). I have an XBOX, but I couldn't care less about "exclusive" content and all that crap. Honestly, I'm THRILLED that the XBOX is not getting a "guest" character (a la Kratos) and is being strictly "Mortal Kombat" when it comes to its roster. As for a demo, don't care about it as the demo is basically the same stuff we have seen over and over online for the past year, so there's not much interest for me in that. If the demo had different characters featured, then maybe, but at this point, April 19 is not far away and I can wait until my copy of the TE arrives at my doorstep.

  • NotAngryJustMad

    I own a 360 and no PS3. I'm kinda bummed we haven't gotten a demo yet but I can deal. As far as exclusive content, I disagree with all of it – whether it's exclusive for xbox or ps3. We all want the game, and everything the game developers have for it. It sucks when new cool stuff comes out for a game that only some people can enjoy. I don't care much about Kratos cause I've never gotten into the GOW games, but even still, why is there console-exclusive content in the first place? I understand console-exclusive games because of the developers, but when it's a game for both consoles I don't think there should be console-exclusive content for that game.

  • salih s9

    absolutly right ps3 sucks big time they are sissys compared to us hardcore 360 players….the mk developers made a exclusive kratos trailer and forgot all about the xbox 360 ?? and now it is said on ign and most places on the web that the demo will come out laterr…..thats BS : l because they havent got the time to make a trailer without kratos or any new character for the 360 in one month or any exclusive stuff or even a demo ……
    they should have designed xbox mk an ps3 mk same time and sme day demoo : l why was that soo hardd ?

  • Branden

    The console wars are starting to get really old, just because there will be no demo released for the 360 for right now doesn't mean that I'm not gonna get what I waited for. Mortal Kombat has always been my favorite fighter, it has this uniqueness about it that you don't find in many other fighters. Honestly I could care less if a demo is released for it, I know it will be good so I don't need to test it out ahead of time. I've been playing MK since the early years, the only version I was really disappointed in was MK vs DCU. I thought that was a joke, it didn't work it felt to cartoony to me. All in all I think the game will be great on both systems, sure, one may have a few more features but I don't care about that. As long as it stays true to what Mortal Kombat has done over the years I will be happy and from what I've seen, it's doing it.

  • Zangetsu

    As a xbox 360 player and subscriber to buy memberships to play on the online experience i say we should also get a demo release i know we all will be playing the full game soon but i dont want to buy it and not like it then i got fucked over 60 bucks, idc about the exclusive character but hello we are paying money to play ps3 is not so what in the hell does our money go to, thats my big question so microsoft dont fuck us over on our money make ur customers happy not hating and not wanting to support and play for u!!!

  • georgemmafa

    fuk u mortal kombat people do u realize that u lose money because of how bum xbox360 people r u fukin dum ass we work hard for are money dose ps3 pay freakin 60 a year no they pay shit

  • cisco

    myself as an Xbox 360 owner i am really upset that there will be no demo for xbox 360 I think it is bull**** having console wars like it really does not matter i dont care that PS3 gets kratos from god of war or 3D, but at least they could give us a demo i mean come on and use your head

  • The Man

    We 360 players should get Dark Kahn from Mortal Kombat Vs DCU as our character. And where the **** is our demo.

  • john

    i think its stupid that they favour PS3 i mean y its a game for both consoles i have been an MK fan forever i always used to watch my brothers play it wen i was younger and ive been playing it ever since i honestly couldnt care about the exclusive character but not giving xbox a demo i mean come on.i have my kollectors edition pre-ordered so i am definatly gonna buy it because i love mortal kombat but ino some people who arnt because of the favortism to PS3 the fact that they get a demo and an exclusive character. dont get me wrong im not dissing NRS or ed boon i love ed boon if it wasnt for him there would be no gud fighting games :) i love the MK franchise im just dissapointed that there is no demo because i am dying to play this game

  • John

    At this point, I feel fortunate that "Mortal Kombat" is EVEN coming out for the X-Box 360.
    Seriously, in the past month every news report has involved Playstation 3 in some way.
    *Exclusive character, exclusive demo, exclusive 3-D mode and just recently, an exclusive soundtrack option.*
    OKAY, Sony, enough already! We get it! Now I agree that X-box has been favored in the past but take a look around, 360 users will not be getting any of this stuff in the future. I guarantee you, the demo will be released one week before the game arrives and it will be exclusive to GOLD members only. If this is a taste of things to come, then Micro$oft will fail and the aforementioned "console wars" has already declared it's victor. BAH!

  • _doesitmatter_

    to me its a little backwards considering playstation and sony was never a big supporter of the mk franchise. as far as it goes they released a whole crap load of shitty japanese fighting games on ps2 and had delayed releases on almost all the mk titles that came out for ps2. i would think that with this happening the guys that develop mk wouldnt be so quick to help out sony like that but then again money talks and sony is all about money.

  • chef

    i think i just want the damn game and the demo now

  • RFzero13

    I dont think of this as much of big deal maybe because i pre ordered it but i dont hate ps3 i hate ps3 owners there so smug about every little thing and whoever said marve v capcom rules can go fuck themself also we do pay for so ps3 owners dont need to get all pissy about that kinda stuff they should be happy someone thought of them for once

  • RyuHyabusa

    this is fucking bullshit, Midway has fallen to the darkside of marketing and become netherrealm. Near the unfortunate death of a great company, it had sold it's soul to the devil for another chance…. Warner bros sees that Sony is desperate to throttle their console ahead, and with the right price they do the dirty work to help them out. playstation 2 was a good console but the playstation 3 just wasn't enough for the next gen, it may have been a bigger hit had it come sooner. The only thing that kept it together was a strong fan support really… I Woulden't doubt that MK9 will not be released on the Xbox360 at all and every pre-order will be cancelled and refunded.

  • Bali

  • Trei

    hahahahaha, lmao at these comments. Xbox360 gets the COD Black ops DLC way before PS3 so PS3 spent a little more money getting a MK demo early. im a 360 owner and i do like the PS3 but its too gawky for my taste. Xbox 360 always gets the last laugh though and so what if Microsoft is the publisher of most of its games, there freakin rich and xbox continues to out sale PS3. so yea let them get the demo because the real gamers will be online on a 360 sumwhere gettin it in, WHOOOOOOOOOOOO…………

  • gabe

    ps3 sucks end of story!

  • EdenianKnight

    Right to be fair i'm pissed off at the decision to release a build on the PSN only , i mean the fucking shit that has been put out on XBL market place this week is just a joke why the fuck would i want WWE all stars !! come on the biggest fighting game this year and we get this shit. But i dont believe in console wars i believe if its a multi platform game they should get the same coverage what ever the platform, and as for Kratos i believe that PS3 players have been kind of screwed why would you want a non related MK warrior. i do think MS need to do some serious thinking as to the way they handle big releases because right now they are wank and to dig the knife in further i went XBL this morning and they have launched the MK movie on zune and it occured to me that they know the frustration of the fans are they taking the fucking piss or just laughting at us.

  • WallaceRIP

    i think that it sucks that we xbox owners dont get a demo!!!!

  • Noobde

    I apologize people, I have no kontrol over the LOL XBOX NOT GETTING A DEMO AT ALL!!!

  • Democracy

    my xbox360 will stay where it belongs, somewhere in my closet. PS3 ftw.

    A lot of people whining about fairness when that concept is never realized in the real world. If you don't like that a certain system has an exclusive feature, go out and buy it instead of crying that your cookie isn't as big as someone else. Each systems has its' pros and cons. PS3 has a faster processor, free to access network, rechargeable controllers, blu-ray capability, internet browser (even though it sucks), built-in power supply (unlike Xbox's clunky brick), etc… Xbox users have a significantly larger variety of available games, arguably better motion capture accessory (Kinect), larger online community, multi-platform games typically favor the xbox, movie rental, etc… I own both systems and do prefer my PS3 but honestly this very limited demo isn't really worth the fuss some have made of it's exclusivity. After playing the demo I no longer believe I will shell out 60$ on this title. After Armageddon which had many great features like Motor Kombat, decent 3d levels, and my personal favorite being the custom fighter creation, this game really seems like a step back instead of forward. While those who really enjoyed the game in it's heyday of 2d mayhem may like the reversion, I feel that changing to 3d was inevitable and ultimately more realistic.

    Ps3 is gay, GIVE US OUR DEMO

  • DizzyDownTheBoozer

    Is your distaste for this obvious favouritism enough to make you boycott the game?.. Nope?.. Didn't think so and that is why companies can and will always get away with this sort of crap and much more!

    There is one obvious way to change things but then that will never happen anyway… So lets all remain in our bent over positions while companies reload their shaft cannons.

  • Josiah Reyes

    It has been confirmed, there will be no Xbox 360 demo for Mortal Kombat, but we really shouldnt care because the game comes out in 5 days

  • razzler666

    you are all a bunch of whining, snivelling, spiteful little angry virgins aren't you! i can't believe how upset and furious you people get just because xbox didn't get a damn demo. You argue with each other like you have millions of shares in sony and microsoft. why not just be happy that we now have amazing consoles and have lots of fantastic entertainment to enjoy when Mk9 is released?!?! honestly if anyone asks me if i'm a gamer i say ' no' because i don't want anyone to associate me with the armies of nasty, spoilt little fanboys.

  • sub_zero

    well thats a bit stupid and senceless making the same game for both platforms with a 1 character diference. Sounds dam stupid. If you want exclusive shit just make the game for 1 platform or the other… should be the same game for both platforms. Sounds really dumb making and exclusive character for 1 platform on the same game… i mean really dumb…

  • Pred

    Sucks a bit that PS3 gets an exclusive char but 360 doesn't but I can get over that. I probably wasn't gonna use Kratos anyway lol. But wtf is up with still not having a demo? The game is already out. I should be able to play the freakin demo before I choose to buy it. This is DOA4 all over again.

  • DynastyMerc

    It pisses me off. Xbox onwers should get all the extras seeing as were not cheap and actually pay for our online playing experience. I mean come on, Microsoft didn't have to steal their motion gaming, they made something original. In short, 360 rules Playstation drools and thats the way its always been. I would quickly change my opinion if someone gave me a free playstation 3. :?

  • Lamott

    PS3 ur trash. its a damn demo. why do this over a demo. people wanna play the demo and dont wanna buy a PS3 to do so. not everyone like PS3. so hop off eachothers d*** and just give us the demo already. i understand that it was PS at first but u chose to make it for xbox npw i need to make a demo for xbox. and no one gives a crap about who u put in the game..just keep the same people and stop sucking up the your mother freaking fans. let them buy it because its good not because of who is in it. you lose sells that way. NOW MAKE A FREAKING DEMO FOR 360!

  • Cizin

    Just face it. The reason why Xbox360 owners don't get MK demo is cause game is weak. And main reason for PS users is to play as Cratos. Its better they don't give demo to Xbox users before release of full version.

  • povey

    i think the exclusive xbox 360 character should be masterchief from halo and the demo still isnt out i just checked on the xbl m arketplace :(

  • Steven

    Ya know, now that the PSN is down and Xbox still doesn't have a demo for the game…meaning I can't get a demo at all currently to try it out…I think I'm done with this game. After 4 or 5 horrible releases that were a slap in the face to the older fan base of the game I think I'm done now. Nail in the coffin I'll stick to capcom games who kept the same format and innovated on what was already there to make spectacular releases. I was a die hard MK fan all the way up until just after 4 and even 4 was shaky. Hey, let's redesign the whole game and make a completely different playstyle change all the button combinations from what they were and alienate our original fan base. Use some familiar names and characters and call it MK but it's not really. That's what they did. WHAT were you thinking developers?

  • T8R

    all i gotta say is who cares about a demo? demos just piss me off. you can only do a certain amount of stuff on it or get so far, and then you'll want more. i mean really, who hasn't ever played mortal kombat before? if you haven't, you don't even need the demo cause you won't know whats goin on. I've been playin mortal kombat since it was on the sega/snes. still have it for sega cd. i just hope it lives up to the hype and don't mess it up like the last 5 did. they blew!!! and to those capcom vs. marvel fans…that's not even a real fighting game!!! a fighting game is about killing the other guy. you don't even see any blood in those games. and to those pissed about the xtra character, this ain't soul calliber. you don't mess up mortal kombat by puttin in new chartacters. just put every mk person that was ever in the games before, and you'll have plenty of selections to choose from. why fix something if it ain't broke?

  • XSevenSonata

    I prefer PlayStation 3 over Xbox 360. However, Not every game is for every platform, So, I own an Xbox 360 as well as PlayStation 3. Kratos doesn't interest me. As always, If I decide to try the game, I will only be playing my favorite characters.

    I am however slightly mad that there was no Demo for Xbox 360. My PlayStation 3 Controller is being repaired. So, Until it returns, I can't play the Demo with no Xbox 360 release. But, It's not a big deal.

  • Openminded

    Here's an idea. Instead of bickering about which is better like a bunch of babies, just get both. S'what I do and rather than spend my time convincing my friends, and myself, that I picked the better system, I get to enjoy the benefits of both systems. Go cry, diehard fanboys. Being reasonable gets you way more great stuff in life.
