Mortal Kombat X, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions cancelled?

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.

The story is too old to be commented.

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.

FeliceDiGi889d ago

They don't even mention them in the press release...

DarkOcelet889d ago

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.

deadpoolio316888d ago

The Ps3/360 versions WERE mentioned and NO they weren't cancelled, they were delayed until summer.....

ZombieKiller889d ago

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.

AngelicIceDiamond889d ago

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.

OUROSMAG889d ago

Dunno.... Avalanche just did it with Mad Max..

DarkOcelet889d ago

I mean, they should announce it sooner.

RedDeadLB889d ago

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.

Link2DaFutcha888d ago

They're officially delayed until summer 2015

Jozinho888d ago

I think i read it somewhere that it is delayed until June...I might be wrong tho

deadpoolio316888d ago

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

FullmetalRoyale889d ago

Would hardly be a current gen game if it wasn't being hindered design wise by last gen.

Mr Logic888d ago

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".

RyujiDanma888d ago

another game with last gen graphics coming, this whole current gen has been disapointing so far....

CorndogBurglar888d ago

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.

BigBosss889d ago

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.

MrSwankSinatra889d ago

actually the PC version is being worked on by the team who is doing the PS3 and 360 version.

FeliceDiGi889d ago

Same thing in the english version of the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/wat...

LOL_WUT889d ago

Glad they dropped the last-gen ports hopefully they can use up all those resources to create a decent multiplayer. ;)

TXIDarkAvenger889d ago

NetherRealm Studios was never working on last-gen versions of MKX

ginsunuva889d ago

You just read the headline and jumped straight to conclusions.

This is why the media knows it can legitimately influence people with headlines.

Eck0888d ago

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.
