TMAG.it has found a clue that might have been “hidden” in the last two trailer for Mortal Kombat X, launched from a distance of thirteen days of each other.
So they cancel PS3/360 versions but mobile version are still in production? :/ How logical is that? I doubt its cancelled, its just a typo mistake i think.
They don't even mention them in the press release...
I am pretty sure they are just concentrating on the current gen version because it will highly likely sell the most there. They cant cancel it now when its only being released in one month.
The Ps3/360 versions WERE mentioned and NO they weren't cancelled, they were delayed until summer.....
So I saw it was going to be released worldwide in this trailer but not the last. Does that mean only half the world? People take everything the see and don't see with such heart. Maybe they just wanted to advertise the next gen version...WHO KNOWS?! Maybe the "journalist" should get a real job so he can afford a next gen console.
IMO that's really done. Dying light was cancelled for last gen and for what? Dying light is still using last gen tech. Mortal Kombat is still rendering and using built on last gen tech. Just keep it on last gen there's really no difference other than resolution.
"Just keep it on last gen there's really no difference other than resolution." Shadow of mordor would like to speak with you.
Dunno.... Avalanche just did it with Mad Max..
I mean, they should announce it sooner.
The mobile version is something completely different and the "big" versions don't depend on it the slightest. Releasing on two generations of hardware, however, means compromises will have had to be made for the game to be equal on both generations. So, current gen games are often not what they could have been because the previous gen hardware restricts it. Far Cry 4 for example. GTA 5 for example. MGS5 for example.
They're officially delayed until summer 2015
I think i read it somewhere that it is delayed until June...I might be wrong tho
No your right, they were delayed until summer...Clearly the article is just clickbait, because the PS3/360 versions were not cancelled
I didn't even know it had PS3 and Xbox 360 versions lol
Would hardly be a current gen game if it wasn't being hindered design wise by last gen.
I have to disagree with you, because this is taking the Shadow of Mordor route instead of the Call of Duty route. I'll explain. Shadow of Mordor was DESIGNED for PS4/X1/PC. Then it was downgraded and ported by another studio for PS360. This resulted in a product that was much worse in many ways. Keep in mind I'm using COD as an example, I'm not 100% confident in my info, but there are many games like this. COD was developed around being playable on all systems since it's going to make most of its money on last gen. So the game is not "next gen" Mortal Kombat X is taking the first route. Netherealm is making a game for PS4/X1/PC and the port is being handled by another studio. So IMO MKX is "next gen".
another game with last gen graphics coming, this whole current gen has been disapointing so far....
Yes....this whole entire first year and a half of current gen. The same thing happens every new generation. It usually take a few years before the previous gen goes away, and the new gen always gets held back by it for a time. I'm not sure why people seem to forget this every time new consoles come out. People said the same thing about the 360 last time. That it was disappointing. It turned out to be one of the best consoles of all time.
They are not cancelled. Its just being worked on by a different team. Whereas NRS are working on the PS4, Xbox One and PC version.
actually the PC version is being worked on by the team who is doing the PS3 and 360 version.
Same thing in the english version of the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Glad they dropped the last-gen ports hopefully they can use up all those resources to create a decent multiplayer. ;)
NetherRealm Studios was never working on last-gen versions of MKX
You just read the headline and jumped straight to conclusions. This is why the media knows it can legitimately influence people with headlines.
i was under the impression since the first trailer.. that this was 'next gen' only and pc.. i never saw anything about ps3 and 360.
Next-gen only? Sounds interesting...
I'd rather have game companies start doing this. we need to move forward and not backwards in the game industry.
Wouldn't be at all surprised. Current-gen's shoving last-gen aside pretty quickly.
What happened to asking a developer about the things before shot gunning it as a rumor on the internet? Trash website, trash story.
Not surprised, still love my PS3 but it's time to move on to next gen if you want to enjoy new games that are meant to be made for this current gen.
so what this guy is saying is that adding it to steam was a late decision coz it wasnt in the earlier ad. also in both ads i see a PSN logo but not the xbox live logo. does this mean online multiplayer is exclusive to the Playstation? i mean if it already implied that online for both consoles why the need to put a logo right? are they really hinting that xbox version has no online? gimped. lol. this guy who wrote this is such a tool.
This reminds me of that "no XBLG or PS+ required for MP" fiasco. Slow your rolls, guys...
It should have been next gen only to begin with. Being held back by hardware holds me back from getting a next gen console when the only difference will be fps, resolution and graphics. Even "if" it is cancelled (it's either a typo, delay or is cancelled), they already wasted the time/money/resources producing the last gen versions. So if it had been cancelled, won't much change. Similar to DL (Dying Light), had it been next gen only from the beginning, this already awesome game would've been even better.
i love how people are stilling saying "im glad its been dropped" "good now they focus there resources on next gen" lol...really bros? Now they can focus on the next gen versions? THE GAME COMES OUT IN ABOUT 30 DAYS LOL,you really think that would matter? lol lastly how about the fact that the team working on xbox 360/ps3 port isn't netherelms yet people will continue to say it would look better if it was next gen only and so on,this is exactly why we are state of gaming that we are in. People seem to refuse to dig deeper and get the truth,this is why the hype train is still rolling strong xD
I hope not, I still get my beat em ups on 360 coz I've got two arcade sticks ready for kombat. If only my 360 stuff worked on xbox one :(
It's quite clear they are just advertising the the app version and steam version instead of old jen .... this does not mean they are cancelled at all!! people will use anything to write an article these day's !! seeing a lot N4G lately .
Old jen is such a dirty sloot.
I was actually surprised when I saw a version being made for 360/PS3. I was under the impression when this game first showed footage that it would be next gen only. It seems a lot of devs are going this route and focusing on the newer consoles. I can only imagine its to save costs. To develop for 4 different consoles plus the PC could be costly for development.
Right. PDP went through all that trouble to make their custom fight pads compatible with current and last gen versions of the game and consoles. Yeah no.
Who or what is this website coming to conclusions based off a trailer? Haha. Typical hit searching.
There's a difference between cancelled and delayed and this website said cancelled to get hits with no concrete evidence.
Its been a year and half. i think its time everybody moves to next get. if you saved 20 dollars a month you could afford a ps4. I think its the right time with Bloodborne,MK X and the witcher 3 coming out March, April, May.
