Warner Bros. has confirmed that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Mortal Kombat X have been delayed until summer. The Xbox One, PS4 and PC versions are still on track to release on April 14.
Unlucky for the last gen folks :(
I believe this has to do with pirating. It'll force the last gen pirates to buy the new game instead if pirating it, trying it, then not buying it after the anticipation wears off. Even with the new gen games would suffer from last gen pirating if there's only a difference in graphics and minor tweeks
Or that WB&NR want to focus on current-gen first and worry about last gen later to prevent any delays of the current gen version. That or the last gen version is being handle by another team and they need more time.
@Xman2K Let me guess...contrails are the government trying to mind wash us too? Not everything is a conspiracy mate! If you don't have a 'next-gen' console yet, then you're not a real gamer.
no thats not the reason. the reason this is delayed on last gen is because last gen versions will be very awful ports. they did the exact same thing with Shadows of mordor were they delayed last gen versions and when last gen versions released they were unbelievably bad. Shadows of mordor was a Warner bros game as well. the PS3 version was easily the worst PS3 port since Skyrim.
Lol time to stop making games for the last gen consoles...
Shitty for those who wanted it for XB360 or PS3 but honestly, it looks like this game might look a lot more impressive on the other platforms as well. Glad I jumped to PS4 last month because this game mostly.
Damn I almost spit when I saw MKX Delayed... then I realized it was on last gen and was like PHEW! Still sucks for last gen peeps.
I came here just to se if anyone else had this reaction haha Headline stunned my eyes for a couple seconds.
Me too! I almost cried.
I had a mini heart attack
Time to upgrade kids.
I do agree with the comments, time to upgrade for those who can. Really think all these games will come out so much better and polished if they focus on the new gen\pc.
I seen delayed and thought FFS and then i saw 360 and PS3 and thought thank fuck, it is about time to let those consoles die.
Warner has either been delaying or cancelling last gen versions. In 2015 last gen versions needn't be developed. Cross gen development hampers scope of next gen development
Agreed. They did this during the fall with Shadows of Mordor and cancelling last gen Batman and Mad Max.
At the end of the cage family trailer it makes only mention of ps4, xbox 1 and pc, the signs where there. It'll be there delayed, month till launch in the summer and their canceled.
It's been a year and a half since the launch of the new consoles. Last gen is dangerously approaching 10 years old. Hell, the Xbox 360 is already 10 years old and the ps3 will get there in the later half f this year. They had a good run. We got some great games, but they're ancient hardware. If you play video games on more than just a casual basis and have a vested interest in new releases, it's time to upgrade. These last gen owners are holding back current gen and PC. Last gen was the longest a console generation lasted and this is the longest major cross-generation titles have been released. Let it go. The last gen consoles need to die. They've been around long enough and started to show their age already in 2011.
NRS is doing the PS4/X1/PC versions, High Voltage (Terrible Port Developer, they did the awful MK9 on PC and Injustice Pc versions) is doing the PS3/360. They did a terrible job on Online for Injustice and MK9 as the netcode is garbage and usually force closes on PC. Be weary of the last gen version of the game, you've been warned.
When last gen versions of games get delayed after their next gen counterparts, that usually means they are poorly optimized. Just look at Shadow of Mordor on last gen.
Better delayed (or in some cases, maybe even cancelled) if High Voltage is involved.
No more last gen games! cancell it they have nough games to play on last gen. Let it go it's time to move on!
might double dip
Hopefully this year is the final year of making last gen games. Really just a waste of time and resources.
