Mortal Kombat 2011: Patch Update to fix Online Problems on Xbox 360, PS3

By Posted 29 Apr 2011, 04:48

We have some important news for those of you with a copy of Mortal Kombat on either the Xbox 360 or PS3. NetherRealm Studios has just confirmed that they are working on a patch update which is specifically intended to address technical problems during online play.

In a blog post up on their forums, they revealed that a patch update is on the way for both the Xbox 360 and PS3 within the next two weeks, although a solid date has not been confirmed, as reported from TheSixthAxis.

They clarify that there are a number of issues during online play, and they even specify a few problems during King of the Hill matches and ranked 1v1 matches. They are working on fixing these areas as we speak, and also admit that the problems were unexpected, due to the popularity of the game for both console owners.

Of course, it’s only Xbox 360 owners that can enjoy online Mortal Kombat play at the moment, as we all know Sony are having problems with their PlayStation Network after a serious attack by hackers. We’ll let you know as soon as this patch goes live.

Are any of you having problems during online matches? If so, tell us exactly what you are experiencing.

    Only a bit of lag and a few lost connections, but this game is great. Will we ever get tag lobbies though? That would make it even more awesome!!

    I played it the first night on PS3. I was never able to play King of the Hill online with more than one of my PS3 friends. If more than one of my friends entered the private king of the hill match then everyone but me got booted.

    When there are a lot of folks in the room, the game starts to lag a bit. I also have a lot of problems with quitters. I am tired of them leaving the game just right before "FINISH HIM." It is quite annoying and childish. These people, in my opinion, should be banned for at least ten-fifteen minutes before entering the game again.

    my gf bought the game but cant play it on her system (older system version) anyone else have this problem? it works fine on mine (newer system)

    • thx

      your gf is irrelevant.

      • random

        at least he has a girlfriend

    Funny how they say Xbox users can "enjoy" online play. I'm missing something if enjoyment is waiting a half hour to find a match, finding out it's laggy as all hell and still not actually being able to finish the match as you get disconnected half way through…

  • dave

    i keep getting booted out of king of the hill..thats my main problem..other than that there is a little bit of lag but thats to be expected

  • SamxFisher

    When I got the game, online was awesome, 2 days ago, I cant see the online rooms, I can only play ranked or private sessions, I have NAT open, Ive updated the game 3 times (2 in a day), I've entered the online code in the game and no results… 90€ for 2 days of playing campaign….

    I have lots of problems online. Which is unfortunate cuz I reserved the tournament edition like 5 months ago. almost when it was first available. Mortal Kombat is probably my favorite game ever. For sure it's my favorite game from back in the arcade days. And I've spent alot of money on this one $160. But all I can play is player matches and even those are laggy most of the time. If I try to play ranked it just searches for a player forever and never finds anyone. And I think king of the hill is a GREAT idea cuz it's like being back in the arcade, but I can never play them. It's always EXTREMELY laggy and I get kicked out during a match or while waiting. Or I just plain can't join them. I play plenty of other xbox live games with no problems online at all so it's not my internet. PLEEEEASE fix this problem.

    I have a lot of problems with lag and the upper cut don't work all the time.

  • Crackle

    I think they will fix it… Give them a few weeks!… I will be HIGHLY dissapointed if they don't fix it… as the game is extremely good. I love it! It won't be much fun if all the online modes do not work properly and efficiently, however. I think due to the amount of success sales wise that netherrealm and WB has had upon the release of the game, they would be committing Video Game Creating Career Suicide with no note left behind… The game is absolutely awsome and I want some competition and I want to see people finish me online.. and I want to finish other people online.. I think they will fix it! I really hope they do….

  • zweck

    just got it, two things need to be fixed asap

    1, CONSTANT disconects in matches

    2, Id like my storymode progress inc movies to be available after completion

  • 12 G

    for some reason on the older ps3 system my game wont let me play as Cyrax and freezes up everytime someone plays as him or versus him, making the story mode and the character unplayable.

    A patch to fix this would be nice instead of having to spend money on a new PS3

    yup! when u press x on the xbox you can see everyones connection during king of the hill matches. I noticed when i play with friends closer to where i live there is a better connection versus ppl farther away. me and alot of my friends have issues where the game desyncronizes and kicks everyone out when we try to play a game with a firend lets says lives approx. 3 or 4 states away.

    I am having just one problem after the network came back. This game won’t start up at all. This game that I love most does not even go as far as I could select a match. First it looks for mk updates and then the circular thingy goes merry-go-round like its loading and then gets stuck. I have never used any illegal firmwares and am using an 80gb white ceramic (fat) model. Have tried a lot of times. This damn “merry-go-round” loading icon gets stuck every time. When this happens the PS icon on the controller also does not work. And every time this happens I have to switch off from the switch at the rear side and then switch ON again. I updated to the latest firmware and did not have any problem with this game. But after the network came back it killed my hard earned mk game. I hope they will fix this soon.

    One more thing, the demo of this game that I downloaded to my ps3, is having no problems even after the return of the PSN. It’s the PS3 FULL game (MK9) that is getting stuck after the PSN came back.

    I even put the code that came along with the game in the ‘redeem codes’ but still I am having the same problem with the game.

    the game is finally playable after I updated with firmware 3.65 But still am unable to play online. It says connection to the server lost. Maybe the Asian servers are still down since I am using an Asian account with the Asian version of the game. Anyone having similar problems?
