The title was considered a rumored project and gamers considered it to be cancelled. However, according to a freelance 3D artist the HD Arcade Kollection pack is a go.
Patrick Delmastro has removed the title from his resume as of last night.
Never was good enough at the series to really love it -- But I do have fond memories of seeing my buddies drop quarters into them at Aladin's Castle Arcade back in the day. Loved that era in gaming and life. Things were so much better. Pizza hut then > now Mc'donalds then > now Etc, etc, etc And if the pic shown is representative of the actual gameplay that looks amazing.
In that era all that mattered was the games, not sales, graphics, behind the scenes inside infos and stuff today a game is good cause of the sales, hype and other bulshits...
that us 'old-timers' come from a different generation. One that this new crowd will never understand. As for the MK games, i liked #2 the best.
I miss the days of arcades... The golden age of gaming, as it were. The industry will never be the same, too much money involved. At least we were lucky enough to be alive for it.
Wouldn't really categorize these as exclusives. It's not like people on other platforms can't still play the original games in their entirety.
*BING *BING *BING SHUBB ZEEROO!!
damn, now I really starting to think that I will not have enough money to buy all the 2011 PS3 exclusives
I like how you had to add "Another PS3 Exclusive" to the title. You fanboys need to learn how to properly submit articles.
what do u suggest?
I suggest using the article's original title. It's bad enough that people submit their own fanboy-approved, flame bait articles in order to generate traffic, but to submit articles with a modified title that screams "fanboy" is just as ridiculous.
I thought this was confirmed a while ago.
Looks fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!! Day one buy for me. http://www.gamemunition.com...
Jesus another exclusive my god sony stop my wallet is crying slready naa I'm j/k keep them coming!!!!!!
Now if only Square Enix & Konami would announce [Final Fantasy X, X-2, XII Collection] and [Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3 Collection], it would be full circle. + Might not hurt adding [Onimusha Trilogy & Dawn Of Dreams] from Capcom too.
i would probably get the onimusha trilogy. I never did play 2 and 3 but loved 1 and Dawn of Dreams.
You forgot MGS1.. and no thanks on Twin Snakes, the voice acting sucks compared to the PS1 version.
i will get this version of mk been waiting for years for an arcade perfect version peace out?
Just got Deadly Alliance and Deception for ps2. Will get Armageddon either this friday or saturday. Thought I would never get to play the old ones because I don't have the systems to play them on but now that it's been officially confirmed that they're working on it I'm so happy! :D Also can't wait for the new MK! :D PS3 FTW!!! :D
Oh and I also want to buy Shaolin Monks for ps2. xD I'm sure I'll find it somewhere someday...
Amazon.com has it
That screen looks amazing. And I'll be the one to say it. GoW, Ico, Sly, PoP, Splinter Cell and now Mortal Kombat..... You can thank Bluray for all of it. I dont see anyone lining up to put 3 games on a DVD and even though XB gets PoP, they must all be purchased and downloaded separately. Bluray rocks.
It rocks for people who havent played the games before, I have, so wont be purchasing any of them apart from the Ico collection (but thats different ;)). A lot of this is just money grabbing, cant really blame them though.
It might be a money grabbing scheme. I think it is superb to see old games getting a lick of paint. Loved Monkey Island 1 and 2. I will get the ICO collection as I never played them on the PSS. I would love to see a Silent Hill 1- 4 HD but doubt it will ever happen. Thinking about the GoW collection played GoW 3 demo and liked it but never got round to getting it. Is it worth getting GoW 1 and 2?
Hell yeah its worth it.
If I play those three, will I understand the story better? Im kinda new to the MK series and have no idea what the story with Sub Zero v Scorpion is for, but I wanna buy the new one.
Tomb Raider is also confirmed.
Another elusive to PS3. God bless playstation 3 its really hard to believe that they will realize my dream of playing those collection specially if include MK3 which my favorite as i used to give plenty of hours on my mega drive.
i dont care for MK at all but this must be a real kick in the pants for the xbox owners. first sony gets a exclusive character and now this.
Pfft, it doesn't matter. Microsoft has tons of exclusives lined up for 360 users. They just don't announce them early like everyone else. XBLA still has tons of great exclusive games, its got great DLC for games like Alan Wake, and multiplatform games. Take that PS3 owners.
lol Microsoft has no games lined up for 360 in 2011 ps3 is getting more exclusive dlc,games and Content than the xbox 360 in 2011.
Alan wake sadly didnt interest than many people . And unfortunately , many of the upcoming exclusives seem kinect oriented
Microsoft hasn't abandoned their core audience. You'll see plenty of core games being released this year on Xbox360. Kinect is going to have core games too, so its in every core gamer's interest to get Kinect.
@BlackBusterCritic your Hoping that Microsoft hasn't abandoned their core audience. how do you know that xbox 360 has more games for you in 2011.
@BlackBusterCritic Lols. I don't think they've figured out that you're joking.
@BlackBusterCritic its in every core gamer's interest to get the ps3
BBC has to be joking. Nobody is that clueless. Not even the most harden or delusional fan. The whole MS holds things close to the vest jargon is one of the biggest falsities in the industry. The only time that I can remember them pulling off a huge surprise was GTAIV. Everything else? Most of us already knew or were expecting (Final Fantasy, MGR, Tekken, etc). Alan Wake, Too Human, Splinter Cell, Kinect (then Natal) and probably some I am forgetting were announced year(s) before their release. How can MS announce something exclusive when they only have a couple studios of their own? Besides no company can keep anything secret today and that is usually because the companies themselves leak the information to stir the hype train. What could they possibly announce at E3 that will surface this year? Even if they do they are going by the first 3 quarters of 2011 with no exclusive core games for their consumers (again). People also fail to mention, or pretend to let it slip their minds, that Alan Wake, Splinter Cell and Mass Effect were not bumped from 2009 to 2010, both years would have been the same as previous years if they weren't pushed back. Most of their eggs in the holiday season basket. On topic: Sony is just showing off now and rubbing it in. ;) I don't see a whole lot of reasons to power my 360 until Fall of this year, if I do at all. The only game I am interested in from MS as an exclusive is Forza 4 but I am leary there will be too much focus on Kinect and not enough on taking the gmae itself to the next level. I guess it's a good thing I have a PS3.
I have never understood why people keep saying that Microsoft does not announce their games early like everyone else, because history has proven that they do.
Ur joking right? Go look up ps3 exclusive 2011 games, then look up 360 exclusives. ....... oh wait only 360 exclusive that's worth talking about is Gears of War 3
BBC be trollin'.
@BlackBusterCritic Yup, no wonder Window 8 will be released for PC... Please make a video playing the overrated core game of Kinetimals. I'll promise to your video to ad my favorites... =) /s
Black Buster Critic your sarcasm is legendary. Keep making videos brother. :D
on the 360s fans nuts this week i see.
Why would I buy this when MK 9 is coming out? Give me a reason.
how old are you... do you own a PS3 many of us have great fond memories of playing this game.. even if someoone dont want to buy this, its still another exclusive...Sony is now getting way to many games for my wallet
Sony is just rubbing it in and showing off now! ;) This is just getting crazy. My 360 is going to need a dust cover until Fall of this year.
I think his 1 bubble shows his immense amount of credibility.
I bet you're twelve...
Can't wait this and Mk9 are on my top to get list.
2011 Ps3 has more games than all consoles combine 2005-2011, whos next? Legend of dragoon maybe sc conviction?
Dammmn I hope so...
ps3 is equal to fighting game machine...
Hope it has MK Trilogy on there.
All I really want is a Dark Cloud HD collection myself. Although I have enjoy replaying the Sly Cooper Collection.
If that screenshot is how the game actually looks, then day 1 buy for me!
at this rate i won't even care about multiplats on my ps3 anymore.
Multiplats still exsist? I didn't even know the other consoles still have games!/s
I played the crap out of MK2 back when it was new on PSN, and will probably do the same for this version. I just hope this is arcade perfect as in retaining fighting technique bugs like Lui Kang's infamous crouching low kick, or Jax's double/triple ground pound.
You paid at the arcade You paid for it on Consoles You paid for ports You paid for PSN title Now you will pay for it in HD shh... soon you will pay for it in 3D. As much as I don't care for this and wouldn't waste another money on it. The screenshot is pitching me and trying to sell it to me! It looks so nice! O_o -Ninja Gaiden 3- is sick!:)
Right now im cool with the Miday Treasures for PSP which includes MK-MK3. It will be lame this collection will only have MK-MK3. They should go all out and include not only MK-MK3, but UMK3, Triology, Sub Zero Mythologies,( yea i said it and MK4.
That screen is an HD concept screen, no? Not an official screen.
That screenshot is not real. It is fan art by a DeviantArt member. http://xxlightsourcexx.devi...
I don't think this confirms ANYTHING. He worked on it, yes. But where did they ever say this game WAS coming out and EXCLUSIVELY for PS3?! This is the problem with not only n4g, but blogging today. Bloggers see something, and then it's automatically fact.
I hate Sony so much for releasing another exclusive in 2011 which I do remind for all ps3 consumers that we are going to have at least 7 -11 exclusives Sony is killing us here
That screen shot is not real just so you know I thought this was supposed to come out in November back when this was first rumored, but it hasn't even been officially been announced by WB yet. Now with MK9 coming out they might eat each others sales, seeing how this is supposed to come out appealing to core MK fans. The rumors says it will have MK 1, 2 and UMK3(the most competitive and arguably only competitive one), have new actors in HD, and online with an HD demo. I got this from a few MK sites like Testyourmight and TRMK so don't quote me. Quite frankly, it should have came out already to hype MK9, but I think it was either scrapped or cancelled. Hell, maybe it will come with one of the MK9 collector editions.
cant wait this should be good
