Site I never heard of trying to give new info about a game. I highly doubt this is legit. I'll wait for something more official.

I hope not. Im from South Africa and could never connect to anyone online in MKvsDC unless they were also from South Africa. But the game didnt sell well in our small market so to get the online trophies I needed to rent a 2nd copy and go to a friends place and play online in the same room lol

I don't know any MK die-hards in my country. And if they are, they probably left console gaming a long time ago!

This is just dumb if its true. Fighting games thrive on large communities, not closed off ones.

" Xbox360 will have some kind of exclusive content, rather than an exclusive character, which will be announced soon."

Good, it is good to hear this.

I don't see why people see this as a bad thing. I don't know if the same rules apply with a one-on-one game, but in my experience, region lock minimizes lag by excluding potential opponents who live too far away. Few things can kill a game like a foreigner kicking your butt simply because he's in another country.

This is annoying, I was going to import a US copy into Australia (since it is banned here). Would it make any difference if I got a UK copy instead?

Actually.. cancel that I just realised that the game isn't banned in New Zealand :)

That's no good. Expect the online to be empty a year after the release.

Sounds like a big blow for the Australians who wanted to import the game.
