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.

Ghost2502378d ago

yeah but every costume comes with an exclusive fatality, so you can probably unlock the costume but you wont unlock the fatality

LOGICWINS2378d ago

@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.

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

Soldierone2378d ago

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.

TrevorPhillips2378d ago

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?

swishersweets200312378d ago

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.

TrevorPhillips2378d ago (Edited 2378d ago )

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.
