GearNuke: "This fan-made boxart for Mortal Kombat X looks cool, but it is not official."
The sub-zero cover looks way better.
I have to agree, only because I like Sub-zero better than Scorpion... He's been my man since the first Mortal Kombat lol. (Still know how to do his Brutality on MK3.) Hard to believe we're already up to MK 10. Honestly though, it's clear Ed likes Scorpion more than Sub-zero, and PlayStation more than Xbox. So, that's why he wanted the covers reversed, but honestly the blue PS logo with Sub-zero just works... If these were to be the actual cover arts, I would prefer they stayed just like this.
"Honestly though, it's clear Ed likes Scorpion more than Sub-zero, and PlayStation more than Xbox" WHAT?????, you got that from where exactly, if using your logic should it not be the other way round as scopion is his favorite so he must prefer the xbox OT: cant wait really enjoyed 9 alot
@Mikelarry - If you read the article, it shows Ed saying that he wanted the covers reversed from the one you see in the image. Meaning he wanted Scorpion on the PS4 version, and Sub-zero on the X1 version. So again, he likes Scorpion over Sub-zero, and likes PlayStation over Xbox. That's evident by his statements, and all the times we see Sub-zero lose to Scorpion, and the fact that he came out and stated that he just likes PS better (which is why we got Kratos in the PS3 version of MK 9...)
↑↑ You two does it really matter about what the man likes? If he likes Xbox he likes same way with PS. If he likes scorpion then he just likes scorpion. There's no reason to bicker between them
@True_Samurai - It really doesn't matter much to me, just pointing out that I like the Sub-zero matching with the PS blue logo and that it wouldn't make much sense to switch them up as Ed mentioned in the article. Like Mikefizzled said below, I think Reptile would go nicely with X1. As it'll match the green. I suppose it wouldn't fit though, considering it's supposed to be the rivalry between Sub and Scorpion.
I think he wants them reversed because the colour contrasts are better/more complimentary the other way around (deep blue + orange is a well known favourite in movie posters/cover art). Having a single colour for the entire cover would not be dynamic looking enough for anyone with an eye for that sort of thing.
I don't get how he likes Scorpian better or how he prefers the PS over Xbox?
lol amusing discussion ...but I can't believe nobody cares that KRATOS WON'T RETURN?! I played MK9 countless times with friends and literally every match someone picked Kratos ...leaving him out is not cool :/
I agree as well. I like the PS4 version better. It's a shame Reptile isn't on the same level of popularity as Sub Zero and Scorpion. His green outfit would look better on the X1 cover. I just wish we didn't have to wait until 2015 to get our hands on this game. I want a fighter now.
Stale. Why can't we make it epic , like have Shao Kahn sitting on a throne in the background, and everyone fighting infront of him. And maybe a new big villain comin from the side.
Considering that Scorpion is the Neatherrealm studios logo what exactly did you expect
@ZodTheRipper Well if they're trying to bring back the old MK look and feel, which is from what I can tell probably true by the direction they took with the redesigns of Sub-Zero and Scorpion, then I don't see why they would include non-mortal kombat characters.
If anything they'd put Reptile on the Xbox One cover to match the colors. I stopped playing Mortal Kombat once the ninjas no longer became ninjas... man MK3 was fun.
Curious as to where everybody gets that he likes Scorpion more when he's just showing a bit of history. Scorpion DID kill the original SZ but he replaced SZ with another SZ ad even brought the soul back as Noob Saibot, then we have Cyber SZ as well so that's 3 slots on 1 character.
"It would be interesting to put Scorpion on the PS4 box and Subzero on the XboxOne box. Hmmmm…" Scorpion always kill Sub-Zero in the story line of Mortal Kombat so this statement really says a lot about Eds opinion on the PS4 vs X1 fight. I really don't get how people disagreeing with Snookies12 don't see it. Who knows, maybe he just like the PS controllers better as they were better compliments to the fighting game genre than the 360 ones ever were.
Yeah but Scorpian is the true BOSS though!
SUB-ZERO... NOW JUST PLAIN ZERO! Oh wait... wrong SZ :(
Too bad i guess hmmm
It should be reptile on xb1 and sub zero ps4. would make the most sense, but both are pretty cool covers as it stands
I'm bothered by this subliminal message that went down here. Their debut trailer has Scorpion beating SubZero... I could be looking way into this...
back in the day(super nes/sega genesis) mk used to be the s h i t now its boring as f... they need to pull a capcom and go back to their roots
Yeah only because it matches the colour of PS4 covers. Other than that, it isn't anything outstanding.
I like the Scorpion cover better
Okay the only thing that I want from this MK is that each character has like a minimum of 4 fatalities, really I would prefer like 6-8, but I'd be happy with four. IMO, the fact MK hasn't increased the number of fatalities per character is what holds the series back. Plus since this is about fighting games, can anyone tell me how similar the gameplay is between the new KillerInstinct, and the original, cause I really loved the original
Sub-Zero cover looks boss
I prefer the Sub Zero one. But I like Scorpion better (prefer Smoke to all of them though) But either way the box art looks pretty boring.
Yeah, Smoke was pretty kick ass in the last game, even though they kind of made him a bit of a joke in the story (he picks a fight with a lot of the earth realm guys and gets beat down every time).
I think they may revise the Xbox One cover art once Reptile is shown. Sub Zero fits really way the box colour though.
Agreed. PlayStation's case is blue which fits subzeroe perfectly. :)
Agree Sub Zero fits the blue PS4 case and Reptile fits XB1 green case. I don't like the Mortal Kombat letters. They should keep the same logo http://lockgamer.files.word... I think they should do a contest and let fans make boxart designs. Then let people vote in a poll for the best boxart.
I saw a comment suggesting few days ago to have Sub-zero for the ps4 version and Scorpion for the X1 but didn't know they'd think about it.
Sub-Zero cover FTW, fits in PS4's blue color.
Yeah, but I'd prefer Scorpion be on the PS4 cover. I like him better than Sub-Zero. GET OVER HERE!
I heard rumors that Jack Bauer will be in the next Mortal Kombat game.
Why not put the Reptile ( even if he didn't show up on the trailer ) on Xbone cover. He is green, though.
I WANT KRATOS!!!
Me too man.. Sucks they won't have him :(
As a Scorpion player, i would prefer him on the PS4 cover.
Nice, now that is an awesome boxart for the Xbox.
Scorpion should be the cover for the inevitable collectors edition, sub zero the ps choice, and reptile the xb cover.
That Sub Zero PS4 cover looks so sick. I love the PS4's blue cases. And I was hoping that we would see Kratos or Delsin in the game too.
Just have a flippable cover. Scorpion on one side and Sub-Zero on the other side. Problem solved
^^ Someone give this guy a raise lol :D
or you could have a lenticular cover. That's even better than a reversible cover. When was the last time we saw one of those?
Sub zero looks totally different in trailer than the box art
Wouldn't it make more sense going for sub zero for ps4 And reptile for xbone They would match the standard case colours!
I agree with djplonker. Sub Zero for PS4 because it will go well with the blue case. Reptile for Xbone as it will go with the green case. PC to get Scorpion because well he needs to be on the cover.
http://mortalkombat.wikia.c... Seems a solid choice for pc :P
Or Raiden http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... PC master race and all that.
They should have put Master Chief for Xone and Kratos for PS4.
I would buy both version if that happened. =)
Mortal Kombat isnt all about those 2 i demand a proper cover
I agree. Pretty much since day 1 the heaviest focus has always been on Scorpion and Sub-Zero, and for no real reason either. I hope they squash this concept and make an unbiased cover
Damn... I wish Sub Zero was on the Xbox One boxart...
Delsin Rowe as exclusive PS4 character anyone?
Delsin would be fantastic but I'm still hoping for my girl Nariko ps exclusive just in time to announce a heavenly sword sequel
Could just have Scorpion on the reversible side of the paper on PS4 version and opposite for the Xbox One. Everyone will be happy... ^~^
Xbox should have used Reptile instead. PS4's box looks much better
maaaaan why can't this game come out THIS year? I can't believe it man there's so much room for another game THIS year.
How about a hot a** Jade cover for X1 and a equally hot Katana for PS4. I know NetherRealms is incapable of making their female characters hot but they do get the big boobs exposed thing right.
What do you mean NetherRealms is incapable of making their female characters hot? Mileena! XD
What he means is that western developers can`t create lifelike characters, the female characters looks like men. For example, try to compare Wonderwoman in that crap fighting game I dont know the name of that was released not long ago with Sophitia from Soul Calibur.
Make it Reptile vs Sub Zero!
FYI...the story comes from Boon himself that Scorpion is his fav without doubt because he was the first fighter that was made/finished for the game and thus holds a special place in his heart...he said this in interviews a while ago...I do think the rest is just him trolling with the ps/xbox stuff...
Although it is a decent idea (been done before) ed boon wouldn't be able to use those covers for legal reasons. If he did, he would have to compensate the person who created it. Not that he couldn't afford to anyway....if it were me though, i would get one of those 3d covers that would change faces when you tilt it at an angle...problem solved.
No Kratos? Back away, I'm dropping some F-Bombs.
