Mortal Kombat X

Discussing Mortal Kombat X and all things Kontemporary to it.

Mortal Kombat X Not Coming to PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360

Months of rumors and speculation can finally end. Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment has announced Mortal Kombat X is officially cancelled for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. In a statement today, the publisher cited quality issues as a leading cause for the end of 'last gen' development.

After months of development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has come to the regrettable conclusion that we cannot release Mortal Kombat X for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Please know our teams worked diligently to meet the quality standards set by the current-gen versions of the game. We were not able to get the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions to the quality expected of a Mortal Kombat game and are very sorry for not being able to deliver the products as originally planned.

If you pre-ordered Mortal Kombat X for PS3 or Xbox 360, please go to the retail location where you pre-ordered the game and you will receive a full refund.

The announcement ends a dichotomous saga for the latest instalment of the series, which topped 2015 game sales at the mid-year mark.

The tenth Mortal Kombat had the world's attention from day one, trending globally, and producing one of the most watched trailers on YouTube in 2014. This mass anticipation fuelled a successful worldwide launch in April, but it was then the problems really began.

Third-party PC ports proved especially problematic for Mortal Kombat X, reporting a slew of crippling errors, and basic quality issues as fans flooded to the affordable and accessible alternative. Problems persisted as efforts were made to improve the experience, and new patches introduced new fatal errors [full story]. The saga eventuated in anecdotal reports of a change in developers in June - a grim omen for delayed 'last gen' ports once targeted for Summer [original story].

The push to third-party developed PC gaming was rough all around for Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment. The publisher was left redfaced again in June, when NetherRealm sister studio Rocksteady Games were forced to announce the complete suspension of PC sales of Batman: Arkham Knight amidst further issues [read more]. [Editor's Note: Mortal Kombat X has since been stabilized, with Arkham Knight now in the process of patching.]

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One weren't exempt from frustrating Mortal Kombat X launch issues. Players complained of barred access to basic features, pre-order redemption issues, and frequent misunderstandings regarding multiple advertised purchase options. Minor controversy dogged the new release further, with NetherRealm's downloadable content scheme evolving to include: micro-transactions for basic in-game functions; a download version of an in-game NPC; and eventually the free release of pre-order paid incentives.


FINISH HIM: PS3 & 360 versions of Mortal Kombat X will never arrive.

Mortal Kombat Online has persistently heard via forums, social media, and e-mail from fans unable, or unwilling to upgrade their hardware. Today's announcement will not be the answer they hoped for, but will finally close the book on a frustrating chapter of Mortal Kombat history.

For those who can make the leap, the series pushes on, with clues toward new content expected next week, when the developer streams its newest Kombat Kast. All things present considered, that should be a very interesting experience.

The game is worth upgrading. Just do it if you can afford it.

Ouch.

I am not surprised though, the lack of information and screen shots kind of made me assume this would happen, that sucks for all those who were waiting on the last gen versions though.

I thought it would be cancelled, then trollmaster himself (boon) said it wasnt cancelled and that was like 2 weeks ago, and now its officially cancelled

I dont really care either way I bought a PS4 for MKX at launch, but sucks for PS3/360 people who have been waiting and hoping since april, and get lead on by boon saying it was still coming

Not surprisingly, really, but still disappointing to those that didn't want to upgrade.

RE: Last Gen versions of MKX cancelled

I fully intended to get it on ps3 but as soon as they announced the first delay I caved and upgraded. IMO it was worth upgrading I've only bought two games (MK and Arkham Knight) but I've rented plenty.

Thanks to MINION for taking my Siginity!

I really hope some beta footage of the X360/PS3 versions leak because it would be interesting to see how it was coming along and if there was any exclusive content, which most likely they did not plan to reward those holding out for that version.

Goddammit. What am I going to do with this Amazon gift card now? I really don't want/need any other things for the foreseeable future and my actual money is going to important stuff from now until God knows when.

Maybe Super Mario Maker... that does look neat.

Well, I saw this coming from a mile away. Upgrade if you can, folks. The new systems really are worth it and MKX is a beautiful game running on that hardware.

I upgraded solely for MKX and Arkham Knight and I've found quite a few games since that have made my purchase worth it in my eyes.

Best of luck to all you last-geners.

I guess that was the update Boon was talking about. I think the amount of detail in this game wouldn't translate well for last gen consoles anyway. It's just really lame the way NRS handled it. Glad I got my PS4 as soon they said last gen versions were being delayed!

"Classic NRS"...?

Wow. I didn't realize that a development company that has only been around for 5 years with such an extensive library (3) of games had such a penchant for cancelling previous generation versions...especially since this is the first time they've released a game during a two-generation schedule.

Damn NRS...when will the nonsense stop? When will they FINALLY stop the nonsense of forsaking the previous generation of console, which they apparently do so very often?

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?
