In The Latest MK, It’s Less Scorpion Vs Sub-Zero, More Best Buy Vs GameStop

It has been revealed that both Scorpion and Sub Zero will have their original finishing moves, a la MK1, but to enjoy the former’s spine ripping finale, you’ll have to nab the game at Best Buy, and to net the latter’s full arsenal, you need to buy your copy at GameStop. (Industry, Mortal Kombat 9, PS3, Xbox 360)

exclusive fatalities?

this is a damn shame
kornbeaner  +   1622d ago
BESTBUY wins Fatality. Sub-zero's head rip was the first fatality I learned. Forward, Down, Forward + HP (could be LP, it's been awhile). But overall the scheme of essentially charging for exclusive fatalities is ridiculous.

I agree, I'm going with Best Buy for the spine rip. It's too iconic. More iconic than the flame breath. But this retail exclusive fatality nonsense is rediculous.

what? this is retarder

what happens if i want them all? =S

this exclusive content nonsense is getting out of hand

i hope it doesnt get worse in the future .. like exclusive FINALE or something like that

Theyll probably release the rest later on for a price.

Which will suck and wont be worth the it too...Unless you like spending extra for something thats already free?
karl  +   1622d ago
i dont like spending money at all.. xDDD
but they always find a way to rip u off...

glad i im to poor to spend more money on DLC...

Retailer exclusives are a shame. Especially with something as important to the MK series as fatalities. Costumes? Sure, give those away as exclusives. But for goodness sake, give the fatalities to everyone.

none of this matters to me - if i buy the game, it's to use kratos to tear the entire MK line-up apart......one at a time.
joydestroy  +   1622d ago
wow. are they determined to ruin this game before it even launches!?

Exclusive fatalites?

Are you shitting me?

Imagine if they tried that shit back in the day, buy Mortal Kombat 2 at Electronics Boutique and get an exclusive fatality, but buy it at Kay Bee Toys and get an exclusive character.

People would've never went for it......or maybe they would have I don't know, either way it's an outrage.

Exclusive DLC, DLC of any kind sucks for fighters, it's unbalanced.

And so it begins... the downfall of Mortal Kombat 2011.

Another poor implementation of dlc. i hate character Dlc , but finish moves dlc ? That's Way more stupid !

Can't way to see what is next ..
DigitalRaptor  +   1622d ago
This is so gay!

I can't believe companies actually do this.
xXxSeTTriPxXx  +   1622d ago
your line should've been, i can't believe gamers go for this.
HeartDisease  +   1622d ago
gamers will go for what game makers offer. this is what they offer. do not like it? do not buy it. sucks for you once you realize every game maker does this and you have nothing left but old games to play while the entire world puts up with this dlc shit to play newer games.

i am curious how this whole retailer exclusive dlc works. do they pay publishers money to get select content? do publishers spread content out to try to get the real idiots to buy multiples of the same game? god damn i hate this generation of gaming and fear the next.

no no no no
this kinda of crap is what is ruining the industry these days.
just put all the shit youve coded on the disc and stop looking for rip off extra revenue streams. in all honesty if i know that im gonna buy the game and miss characters/fatalities i will simply NOT buy it. and when i eventually do think of buying it, it will be second hand as i think midway wont deserve any of my kurrency.
Same goes for my favorite fighting game of all time (street fighter)as much as i would love to have those extra costumes for characters i refuse to give money for things i should already have on the disc unlocked

I belive tekken 6 has the better model, in that you have to 'earn' your costoms, not buy them as dlc.

Mortal Kombat would be better if you had to unlock your fatalities
instead of buying them.
