Mortal Kombat: Xbox 360 Exclusive Character – Kratos Beater or Pipe Dreams?

By Alan Ng - Mar 24, 2011

We have just showed you the very first official gameplay trailer for Kratos, but now we have some information which may excite Xbox 360 owners who are still feeling a bit frustrated that they aren’t getting an exclusive character on the Xbox 360 for Mortal Kombat.

It seemed a foregone conclusion that the Xbox 360 wouldn’t be receiving an exclusive character, unlike the PS3 which has God Of War’s Kratos, but some recent comments by creator Ed Boon may just offer Xbox 360 owners a glimmer of hope. Here is what he had to say in an interview with Giant Bomb, as reported from VGHQ:

”Well, there’s nothing that we have ready to announce but we love our 360 players and we love our PS3 players and I think everybody’s gonna get something they’ll be happy with.”

Obviously, this isn’t a clear cut confirmation that the Xbox 360 will get an exclusive character, but it’s clear that NetherRealm Studios are going to offer ‘something’ at least, to sweeten the deal on the Xbox 360 side of things. At the moment, Xbox 360 owners are clearly not happy with the PS3 getting Kratos, a Kratos stage and 3D support, so what are NetherRealm going to add to the Xbox 360 version of the game?

It’s the big question that everyone is waiting to hear the answer to. What are your thoughts on this? We still have a while to go until the April 19 release date, so there’s plenty of time for further reveals. Do you think the Xbox 360 will get an exclusive character in the end, or is it a case of fighting a lost cause?
