Hmm, even though I spent a lesser fortune on MK on the arcade machines, and thought myself immune after the PC disappointment of Street Fighter IV - this looks good - and well... I have a hard time to resist a good fighting game.
Might be a PS3 title for me...

This game looks awesome. To bad there's no PC version.

I'm not sure that is a bad thing djole, the Sttreet Fighter game was a bad port and not enjoyable without a game pad - hardly with one at that and much more fun on the console... MK wouldn't be a PC option unless a really impressive demo said otherwise.

I don't think Street Fighter was a bad port. I had lots of fun with it. Sure it's a bit awkward to play it with a keyboard but you can always plug in a gamepad and solve that problem.

Still, there was some options that didn't sit right with the PC version compared to the PS3 version. Also - to sell a PC game and the first thing you see is Push A to start etc is just pure daunting ;)
And no - not a bad port as bad in the game being awful - it just was console game able to be played on your PC so to speak.

Quite a hefty package there. Sadly I can't afford it though. :( With the nano-edition of Crysis 2 inbound, I can only afford the regular edition of mortal kombat. :( It'll still be awesome though, LOVING the x-ray vision stuff in the demo. :D

For me the collectible figures isn't something I moan about - I am selling stuff and clearing out too many ridiculous special editions and cables and man - too much - I would be happy to buy a slim package of this if it is as fun as it looks... I hope the PS3 demo will be none exclusive soon...

Lmao, I only have the special edition of C1. Other than that I don't really have any limited editions or stuff like that of games. Just the regular retail versions. :P

Well, looking over my shoulder at the most recent - not yet sent to the attict games - I have two special edition Fallout 3 and Vegas cramming space, Guild Wars Nightfall, Warhammer Dawn of War 2, a huge recently arrived CodexAssasin's Creed Brotherhood box, A really huge Neverwinter Nights2 Lawgul Good Edition and of course behind all that junk - Dragon Age Origins special edition and er Heroes of Might and Magic V.

LOL, extra costume for Ermac...
I must have played with him 2-3 times total in all games he appeared.

Oh dang! thats sweet! I want the Scorpion figurine! :P

I tried my hands at the demo last night - and sure after half a bottle of wine I finished 5 matches on easy without loosing a round - that is promising. Means that there most likely will be challenges that I can enjoy as well as the game can give those twitchy maniacs a go for their money too. The trailer that shows off in the end however wasn't that inspiring. I mean a fighting game where you loose the first punch only to be kicked around like a volleyball until you die? Is that fun? Ah well, I guess that is the insane levels and on-line...
For me -this may come to my PS3 if the price is right i.e not the price from retailers at launch...

Last time I checked with my retailer the price of mortal kombat is lower than regular PS3 games. ^^

Just go a mail saying MK is now at 40€.
Still 10-20€ too high.
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on Mar 19, 2011
FoolWolf
Oh, spam in the middle of the post - I know where I will NEVER spend any money at least.
40€ is decent for us for a new game, it is around 49€ here at the cheapest places...

Here in Portugal a new Ps3 game is always 60-70€.
Talk about robbery.

Wow in Romania new game PS3, Xbox360, PC are all 40 to 50e, but 60~70e, man that is really bad.

Wow, looks better than I had imagined

Whoa! I would like to have a MK figurine of Sub Zero! Too bad they won't release it for PC. :(

Graphics look kinda sub-par for a new game.

The prices for games in Sweden is rather difficult lately - the retailers have lost a lot of revenues and are fighting the online stores so a new game for PC can be around 30-45€ and the console titles are mostly around 50-60€ roughly.

Now that I've tried it, I really liked it. All the fatality, flawless etc are just so much nostalgia... *ahhh*...

You're one lucky guy. :D

Yeah, this MK makes me so nostalgic. I remember the time when all was much simpler. Me, my friends, Sega and MK all day and night. Those were good times. :D
By Arrecoolast (SI Core) on Mar 20, 2011
Arrecoolast
Yeah, I don't complain about the lower retail prices here in Sweden though. :P

@djole well we have a rather competitive situation right now. And for as long as that keeps up - I guess that I will increase my collection of physical games, not only on STEAM :)
By djole381 (SI Elite) on Mar 20, 2011

@FoolWolf
Physical is always better IMO. When you want to play the game again you don't have to wait an eternity for download, you just grab the disc and install it.
By Eversor (SI Elite) on Mar 20, 2011
Eversor
@djole. Yeah, I don't get games on steam, unless they have to be installed with it. I always buy physical copies of games.
By Arrecoolast (SI Core) on Mar 21, 2011

Same here, holding the game in your hands after unboxing it is a feeling Steam can never give me.

I had a lot of problems with installing SecuROM dvd's some time ago. I had to copy the DVD to my harddrive and run the install from there. When I tried to install from DVD the disc usually spun up and started but kicked out after roughly 20%. So that and too many patch huntings made STEAM a good choice and with 10 MBit fiber - it takes a dinner and putting my son to bed ;)
For PS3 - the Disc is essential - comes with the concept - shove it in and play.

Really? I've never had any problems with securom. :/
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on Mar 21, 2011
FoolWolf
It depends on your DVD players and burner. Some have less problems and some more. Also, the different versions of SecuROM makes different kind of mayhem if something happens. My previous computer had the above problems to read the DVD's - and well I could copy the game, install and enter the key - SecuROM didn't do anything to prevent piracy. It was on the pirate sites you found help also for legit buyers how to get your game working...
DRM's are not consumer friendly and the balance between security and piracy is a thin veil of many lies and deceits...

Indeed, sometimes you wonder what the publishers are thinking. Constant internet required? Really Ubisoft? XD :P
By Geforcer (SI Veteran Member) on Mar 21, 2011

I hate tthat copy protection that requires constant internet connection. I may consider it ok if it wasn't for Ubisofts dumb account creation. I bought the game, I should be able to play it with the disc alone! I had a bit of an argument with Ubisofts Tech Support. I bought the game, I have the disc, the serial and other stuff that came with the game, but I forgot my username and password. And I can't play the game that I paid 45 euros! And all they can say is "sorry, but we can't help you".
