Realm of Gaming states, "Toys R Us is offering Kitana's classic costume to people who preorder through there."
Does this crap actually, or is it just plain evidence that game makers will screw over and manipulate their market for the least excuse?
This is Dumb. I want every custome And every character if im Buying a 60$game.
Remember the days when entering a secret code or beating a secret stage would unlock extra content for you to enjoy the game longer? I want to get back to that. Those days where good days.
"Remember the days when entering a secret code or beating a secret stage would unlock extra content for you to enjoy the game longer?" For all we know, ull be able to unlock ALL the old costumes when you beat the Ladder mode with every character in the full game. The costume thing that Toys R Us, Gamestop, Amazon, and Best Buy are doing may just be costumes that your getting early before u inevitably unlock them in the game. Its a good marketing strategy and discourages people from buying the game used or pirating...THATS good for gaming. Either way, free or paid, its pretty much guaranteed that you will have the opportunity to get all these costumes in the future.
yeah but every costume comes with an exclusive fatality, so you can probably unlock the costume but you wont unlock the fatality
@Ghost250? Why not? Extra fatalities could be unlockable in the game as well. Theres SOOOO much Netherealm Studios hasn't revealed about the game and given that the recent demo hack provides evidence of Babalities and Friendships...I wouldn't say unlockable fatalities is a huge stretch.
"Either way, free or paid, its pretty much guaranteed that you will have the opportunity to get all these costumes in the future." That's not necessarily true. There's been 1 too many times where it was impossible to get certain things in games without pre-ordering them down the line. Thing is though in this case, it seems like you'll have the opportunity. As far as things seem to be it's more than likely just unlocking the stuff instantly in the Krypt.
I don't see them giving this away when they could be making money.
To my understanding, all of these costumes will be available in the game already, but unlockable through other means. These retailer exclusives simply give you the ability to unlock it from the start. You may have seen Sub-Zero and Scorpion's classic costumes in the Challenge Tower. This is because they're already in the game somewhere.
Rip off? Yes but oh well...the real problem exists in choosing Amazon or Gamestop as its the only two characters I want both of. Toys R Us obviously got the low end of the stick
who does amazon have?
amazon has reptile
a pre-order credit.
Reptile and pre order credit towards future purchase. I stand corrected though, I figured out Bestbuy has Sub Zero so thatd be pretty cool too.
Does anyone know if the game actually has these retro costumes, like unlock them in Krypt?? or do you have to get them exclusive from stores?
im under the impression its in the krypt, the pre order is just for instant access i think without having to earn the coins to unlock it.
Thanks for letting me know :) Bubble for you
Seems a bit strange that Toys R Us are involved. Not exactly their target. Most of them dribble and cry. I don't think I've ever seen a fanboy in Toys R Us.
They will probably sell the DLC Attires later after the game is release
At least these are skins and not full fledged characters, MK is teaming with content, and they are giving deals to all major retailers to make cash. I'll wait for the skin pack for purchase and be cool about it.
what a Joke, Gamestop you'll get something , ToyRUs you'll get something.. here's what you don't Get "A COMPLETE GAME"
You actually do get the complete game.
so then you get Classic Scorpion if you don't Pre order from Gamestop? WRONG
Its just costumes to "classic" characters....its not like you dont get the character if you dont buy it 3 times....
Hahaha No one thinks this is weird because its Mortal Kombat(a known non-child game) AND TOYRUS(a known child store)???
Nobody is innocent man, companies are run by adults with money as the goal.
For sure I just figured of all the things ppl cry about this would be on the list. Still good for the lols hahaha cheers dude
Who's paying $60 for this when Mortal Kombat II is $5 on the PSN...and it's the SAME GAME!!!?
no, it is not the same game.
Oh. Well, then. I guess I'll just change my mind. -_- Fighting games never evolved like the other genres.
If you purchased a new COD, Sports, or RPG title WHY DID YOU BUY IT! The old ones are the EXACT same thing!
I haven't purchased a new Call of Duty or Sports game. As far as RPG's go, I really only bought Folklore and The World Ends With You this generation. Both are a farcry from traditional RPG's. I understand your point though. Fighting games just haven't evolved much. Do we need Kamiya to redefine ANOTHER genre or what?
gees. Ed Boon.Dude cool it with the store exclusives.. Cant wait to see what 7 eleven gets exclusive, bet its a stage set in a store of theirs.
theyre already in the game, stop whining
Wow look at that outfit. Guess Toy R' Us ain't just for kids anymore. 12
Crap, I thought it was a real outfit and that I could see chicks walking around in it.
There goes another $60.00. I'll take It!
What really sucks is that this isn't an actual put it on and wear it yourself costume - which is what I first thought when I read the headline.
lol dude so did I hahahah... I was picturing my girlfriend in it...hahaha i swear!
