The first downloadable pack offers gamers a chance to get all of the pre-order content in one set.
I'm generally against studios that charge for pre-order bonuses released as DLC down the road as I feel like it's yet another way they nickel and dime customers...BUT, Mortal Kombat was packed with so much content from the start, I think this is one case where you could make an exception. So many characters already have alternates from the story mode which you can unlock and you already have so much content to play for from the outset, that I can't really say I mind them charging an extra $5 for the classic costumes and fatalities given how much they've already poured into the core game. Plus it's $5 for everything which is nothing compared to the massive rip-off Capcom tried to charge folks for the SFIV alternates. What was it, like $25 or something, get real. Netherrealm outdid themselves with MK9, and as such, I think this is one situation where the studio should be rewarded for all of their hard work as the game was one of the rare cases today where I felt like "damn, this is actually worth more than $60". Plus if you were a smart shopper, you'd know that MK9 could have and still can be had for $40 anyway. In fact I think Toys R Us had it for like $30 at one point as well.
Sweet but what about those who already have some of the costumes will we have to download them again the pack?? Edit: @ bleow Ahh ok any word on a release date??
They will all be automatically downloaded, I'm sure. If you already own some of them, it will not cause a problem.
Everyone already has the data. DLC - Disc locked content
June 7th... There is more info in the article linked.
Idk if you guys noticed but at 1:20 when scorpion does his fatality on sub-zero his costume changes to smokes classic costume:D. @Below i agree Mk is a must play no matter what people say i grew up playing both mk and street fighter but MK has really grown on me over these last years.
I love everything about Mortal Kombat.
yeah what is that about are they gona give us smokes classic costume what about noob saibot
Hell yeah, All the klassic costumes with the fatalities that come with for $5...HELL YEAH ! Toasty ! Cant wait.
eww I just gave hits to battlestrats I totally regret that
If you're on PS3, try this... - Delete the MK file in "Game Data Utility" (this is not your saved game, don't worry, you won't lose any progress.) - Start the game, but don't download the update when it prompts you to. - Go into the fatality trainer, pick Scorpion's alternate costume, get in sweep range and enter down, up, up, triangle. It's his classic fatality. The update locks it away so you can't use it anymore, but at least you can dick around and have some fun with it without spending 5 bucks.
..every year and its $15 Map Packs.
Yes because all people that play Mortal Kombat are CoD fans right?
Haha only 5 bucks, some people have spend 80$ for just reptiles classic costume
Lame. Companies shouldn't charge for costumes. Characters yes, modes yes, costumes no.
I don't think the costumes is the main draw... fatalities are.
what lame ass took a bubble from me and put bad language on me for saying BS. wow douchebags..
i don't have a problem with them charging for costumes, what i do have a problem with is them trying to sell me something thats already on the disc especially when they stated that they wouldn't do this. i mean, you have a challenge in the Challenge Tower with Klassic Sub-Zero and Klassic Scorpion... now they want to turn around and try to charge us for it? i enjoy the game and will keep doing so, but i refuse to pay for something i've already purchased.
I'm totally against charging for things that are already on disc. On the other hand, the Reptile costume alone was selling for $80 on eBay, so I can't really complain about the price.
I hope they release Smoke and Noob's at some point. Though I hear Noob's would be unlikely because he's too dark.
