It appears that the voices of the fans have been heard! Microsoft updated the backwards compatibility list for the Xbox 360 within the past day, and one of the new additions to the list is none other than Mortal Kombat: Deception! This also gives high hopes for Mortal Kombat: Armageddon making the list soon after release, as Midway has told us in the past that if one was made backwards-compatible, it would be trivial to make the other backwards-compatible.

We don't know for certain that it was the petition that prompted the addition of MK: Deception to the backwards-compatibility list, but it seems to be a reasonable deduction. In any event, we'd like to thank all of the MK fans again for signing the petition; you came together in a big way, and helped bring MK to the Xbox 360.

Our thanks to forum member for the letting us know about this important development!
