Ed Boon also mentions that while the PS3 version is getting Kratos from the God of War franchise, no Xbox 360 (http://www.trueachievements.com/n2694/goro-and-jade-confirmed-for-mortal-kombat.htm#) exclusive character has been chosen yet. The current plan is for an Xbox 360 exclusive character at launch with additional characters, including more guest characters, available as post-launch DLC.

Just checked the mortal kombat twitter account and seems like they're all over the place now. They just tweeted in response to someone asking if 360 will get an exclusive character to counter kratos and they said, "sorry, we have no news on that." LOL sounds like they're backtracking from when they said that 360 wouldn't get a console exclusive

That pisses me off... I've been having doubts about keeping my reserve for this game (And for me, I never cancel a reserve! I like to think it out before going into it.) I just don't know. Too little coverage in it, and this non-exclusive is really like the nail in the coffin. I also feel like it's going to be a really bare-bones game for a casual-fighting game player like myself...

Be hinest with yourself though how many times has 360 got an exclusive over ps3, probably 10 to 1

Slightly OT: isnt this bad news if so why do you have a smile icon next to thread wierd

Actually OT: I can't think of any 360 charachter that would suit to be fair I don't think that they want to make a laughing stock of their game by adding someone who fights with guns ala halo guy or marcus fenix, that said if anyone can tell me an exclusive charachter that would fit I'll gladly put my foot in my mouth.


Edit Skorge guy from gears 2 would fit Foot in mouth

I'll be very happy if this is indeed true. I think it's horribly stupid that MK is getting Kratos for the PS3. It just further proves my point that the PS3 is a fail gaming system in which they need to throw their only good exclusive characters in games in order to make any incentive to get the game for the PS3 as opposed to the Xbox.

I own both systems and the way the PS3 conducts their shit just pisses me off!

That's a little immature.
Kratos is pretty much the perfect character for a Mortal Kombat game (except characters from other fighting games), the team themselves even said it was the first character they'd pick if given the chance.

It's just business after all. I can pretty much guarantee if it was the other way 'round, you're response would be something like 'cool'.

It'll probably be someone random. Like the old Soul Calibur game on the original Xbox, PS2, and Gamecube.

Gamecube - Heihachi Mishma
PS2 - Link
Xbox - Spawn

The others fit, but Spawn was totally random. I could see Mortal Kombat getting some random character to add in for the 360.

360 has to have a character with the same amount of hype and attention as Kratos. If it's a gears character that'll be dope, but what i believe Microsoft should do, is call up Rare, tell them to dig in the archives and release the Killer Instinct hounds.

02-09-2011, 03:43 PM
Exactly, Kratos is a character who fits in mortal kombat, and MS dont really have a similar character, but at the end of day does it really matter if we have an xclusive? As long as the characters have a variety of costumes and i can kick ass with liu kang and scorpion, all im gonna say is kratos, ur a dead man LOL. Btw if there was an xclusie i presume it would be skorge:
-Fits in perfectly
-Looks like a physcial fighter
-twin chainsaw as weapon
-He's like predator, and we all know predator kicks ass :)

*cough*FULGORE!*cough* Or maybe he would mesh to bad with the other robot-esc characters. Jago would mesh with the other ninja's...Sabre wulf or Riptor? Maybe Spinal would be cool. Not much room for a fatality on him though. Still chances are my bet is a Gears guy, they're pretty much as MS exclusive as Kratos is Sony.

Anyone down for a revival of tartarus? dont ask how it would work or else ill have to call the flash and wonder woman to come and explain it to you.

big daddy? i could imagine 2 fatalities from this guy though i have not played bioshock. one where he grabs a person (his hand is palm up) by the head with their throat inbetween 2 fingers and he just squeezes and throws them around a bit. the other where he bashes a person to their knees and then uses the drill thing to drill down from the top of the head down with a close-up on it being done.

auron from ffx? only because i would love to see mostly one handed combat from him until at the end of a combo he pops out his other for a devastating attack. plus hes dead already so no problem seeing his die in a grusome way.

Yeah if the 360 Exclusive were to be a reality it should be a Gears Locust character. I mean if they put Arbiter or Master Chief in there I would Vomit.

Yeah, like Soul Calibur with Kratos, Star Wars Characters & Other characters from other games, just randomly tossed in in every sequel. If I wanted to play a Star Wars Fighting Game (which I really don't) I'd play "Masters of Teräs Käsi" which was a nightmare Fail of a Game that I ended up hating myself for asking for it around Xmas 1997.

If the Title isn't a "Franchise" VS "Franchise" Game then it shouldn't have Characters from anywhere else in it.

It's already rumored that the Cyber Sub-Zero is a 360 exclusive, but I have yet to see any sort of source for that. It would be cool for us if it was. I'd take Cyber Sub-Zero over Kratos any day. But, it's probably not exclusive. We should definitely get something besides avatar items.

I highly doubt Cyber Sub-Zero is an exclusive because there is an achievement for unlocking him. Unless PS3 has a trophy for unlocking Kratos instead, I can't see him being the exclusive.

Not really to bothered about an exclusive though Kratos definitely fits in the MK universe pretty smoothly, however if there is a 360 exclusive, skorge would be a pretty nice fit but since he is a pretty minor villian I doubt it could be him, Raam is not much of a melee fighter, so again I doubt it will be him, as for MC its just no...arbiter would be interesting to see how he would fit in but again I highly dount he would be used. But they could still use a character which is multi-platformed for an exclusive.

As for xbox exclusive character they honestly can't add one that makes sense. Ryu from ninja gaiden not exclusive. Halo and gears don't fit and would ruin the game. I can see fags online trying to spam gun moves from long range. The killer Instinct shit although not exclusive would be cool and they should just remake it. That would make up for a nice competition to Mortal Kombat. Killer Instinct Gold was amazing. Lets see Glacier come back.

Don't get me wrong, I love the god of war series, but after I posted the kratos game play video, and watching it, he just doesn't seem like a very fun character to use in this game, but hey if he was in the copy of my game I wouldn't complain as its another character to use...

*shrug*
Actually, it's pretty easy for me. The last MK game I was able to play was Deadly Alliance. I don't remember a whole lot about it, but what I do remember, most was because I didn't like it. One of those things was how there was such an emphasis on weapon usage. I HATED that! In this one, I can tolerate it because it's just a couple moves; not an entire fighting style with its own complete set of moves. Based on the videos I've seen, all Kratos is is weapon usage. Lose nearly all those weapons, then okay, but at that point, what's the point in him?

I say that Mortal Kombat should be exclusive to Mortal Kombat characters only. Fuck crossovers. It's just a ploy to get more people to buy it.

Everyone who's giving props to Kratos and the PS3 version really needs to kindly shut their mouths. This is an XBox 360 web site. Please, if you wanna talk about Kratos, go to PS3Trophies.

And for the record, I'd much rather have this:

*Exclusive Arena: The Pit 360 - Remake of The Pit III from MK3 (the indoor one with the spinning blades at the bottom)

*DLC Character "Lady in Red" will be available to Xbox Live users as a free download for a limited time after her release.

than Kratos any day of the week. Come on, THE PIT III? That was Shao Kahn's crib! Still, I'd like to know where this person got this info from. Unless it's being made up, but it sure does sound believable.

Ezio from assassins creed would be pretty epic imo

Hell yes. exclusive or no, Ezio would be awesome.

yeah i'm thinking the same thing. there's a LOT of kratos bashing... people saying they'd RATHER get the version with him not it in... WHY?! Man if I had a ps3 I would totally be getting it for that system. Kratos is BRUTAL. I don't see how a fan of mortal kombat could disagree.

*shrug*


Seeing how he have never been part of the game in the past and I'm not really a fan of cross overs I would rather him not be in it. With being said I'm not saying I wont use him from time to time and wont play single player with him. Something tells me I am going to be glad I got this for both the PS3 and 360.

As for the stuff that is said to be on the 360 only that is better than what the PS3 is getting for me because it is Mortal Kombat. I really hope the next game does not do any cross overs.

So I googled "pit 360 exclusive Mortal kombat" and I got a post at Gamespot's forum listing the Exclusives

*Exclusive Mode: Puzzle Kombat - Features online play, leaderboards, and avatar support.
*Exclusive Arena: The Pit 360 - Remake of The Pit III from MK3 (the indoor one with the spinning blades at the bottom)
*King of the Hill mode will include avatar support.
*DLC Character "Lady in Red" will be available to Xbox Live users as a free download for a limited time after her release.
*Exclusive avatar gear will be available for purchase.

Here's the Link

Tremor would be an interesting character and seeing as Boon loves to make rumors/glitches into actual characters, I can see him bringing in a unreleased character at some point in the future, and it would be great if it was an exclusive!

Obviously I have no idea if anyone else has been doing it, but seeing as I just signed up for Twitter (still no idea why I did hehe), I figured I'd do my first tweet in the direction of Ed and asked if we could at least get a date to when we'll learn what our exclusives are. We'll see if it gets noticed.

EDIT: Rather than double-post, I just did a search to see if there was anything new in the rumor department of Xbox exclusives, and http://attackofthefanboy.com/news/new-exclusive-xbox-360-content-rumored-for-mortal-kombat/ was right there. The same list, but also includes a pic of the KotH mode.

How in any way, shape, or form are we being 'ripped off' because we don't get some extra pointless character? :confused: They only added Kratos to try and make the PS3 version seem like its special, when in reality its just sony paying money to try and take some of the Xbox sales their way.

They can keep their krappy kratos, and in exchange we will have way more people playing online at any given time. Seems like a better deal to me. ;)

I'm sure PS3 owners will be sick of Kratos in a month after everyone has been using him. Like someone else said, this is about going back to the MK roots with the originals, not just seeing how many stupid characters they can stuff in the box for you.

Hmm well that screenshot is a bit blurry, but definitely looks legit with all the mini kombatants at the bottom looking up at the fight!

It'd still be insane to have Marcus, though. I wonder if Kreate-a-Characer or Motor Kombat will make a return. I still say that Motor Kombat should have its own fully fleshed out XBLA game.

I would love Motor Kombat to be an arcade game, and I would like a Kreate-a-character, it would make online matches interesting because you wouldn't know a characters play style, it would just be random.

Though the problem with that is that they'll be a way to make an over-powered character by giving him certain abilities and movesets which will just ruin the game

I agree that having Marcus, Dom, or especially Cole-Train would be "EPIC!" (pun intended.)

But, I dont understand why everyone is hating on the PS3 so much? I own both systems, and yes I do use my 360 a lot more than my PS3. Honestly, what other exclusives has the PS3 got over the xbox? Only thing I can really remember is Playing as the Joker in Batman: AA. Of course MoH had the other game attached, as well as Dead Space 2 and thats for the simple fact that Blu-Ray discs hold a lot more data than 360 discs.

And btw, the PS3 has an exclusive arena as well - The Flame of Olympus.

AND, the King of the Hill Mode is NOT 360 exclusive. Avatar support is 360 exclusive in KoTH mode - not the entire mode.

Finally, Scarlet is not going to be "360 exclusive" she is included with the first DLC pack that includes Kenshin as well.

PS3 owners are also getting a free copy of the PC version of Portal 2. And Pieville, created characters wouldn't be that over balanced, I don't think. Even if they were they could have just created characters matchmaking playlist online or make it so that they're only usable offline :)

Mortal Kombat Xbox 360-Exclusives Revealed?

Xbox 360 Mortal Kombat fans were disappointed when it was announced that PS3 owners would get Kratos as an exclusive character while they got nothing. Rumors have now surfaced that Xbox 360 fans won't be left out in the cold when it comes to exclusives.

None of this has been confirmed yet by developer NetherRealms Studios, but it would be surprising if the PS3 got something and the Xbox 360 didn't.

Exclusive Mode: Puzzle Kombat – Features online play, leaderboards, and avatar support
Exclusive Arena: The Pit 360 – A remake of The Pit III from MK 3
King of the Hill mode will include avatar support
DLC Character "Lady in Red" will be available to Xbox Live users as a free download for a limited time after her release
Exclusive avatar gear will be available for purchase

This keeps getting posted everywhere, but yet there is NO proof from N.R. Studio. Why is this getting spread worse than a case of herpes?

Obviously, avatar gear is a 360 exclusive, as PS3 doesnt use animated avatars (except home, but no one uses it)

As I said before, KoTH mode is NOT 360 exclusive - just avatars watching the game is 360 exclusive.

If Scarlet is going to be free (which I highly doubt) because she is in a DLC pack, I dont care paying a dollar or two for new characters.

So maybe just Puzzle Kombat will be the 360 exclusive.

But since we have been told we'll be getting some sort of exclusive content (but NOT a character), I'm just hoping it's really worthwhile.

I find the debate over exclusives as retarded as the debate over consoles. Who cares what system people are playing, other than the companies selling them.

Ever been to an auction? At some point you get to an amount where one bidder just doesn't feel it's worth the price anymore, even when it's only a tiny bit more than their previous bid. It has nothing to do with available funds.

Are you even aware of PSN+? That is WAY better than what XBL has to offer. Sure PSN doesnt have party chat or voice messaging; but do XBL members receive special discounts twice a month on downloadable games or goodies, sometimes. And it is usually shit that no one wants.

Does XBL give out absolutely FREE arcade games on a monthly basis, nope? PSN+ members get PSN titles all the time for free. Does XBL give out free premium DLC w/achievements to members, no. PSN+ members get that treatment on premium DLC w/trophies.

Cool Story Bro, J/K... microsoft has given us things for free actually..... all PSN is, is FREE FREE FREE FREE. i dont consider something better because all it does is throw free crap at you. i dont like having to pay for almost everything either but there are lots of people on xbox live for a reason. it has the better online community. i think sony gives all those freebies to keep their costumers from moving to the 360 or whatever other platform. PSN DOESN'T HAVE A THING ON XBOX LIVE besides its freebies. and on another note: there were a few DLC packs that were free with achievements, maybe not anymore but at one point in time.

All i get from your post is "PSN IS BETTER CAUSE I GET FREE THINGS DAILY!" you might have tried to make your post sound non fanboyish but it does.

I don't think he realised that even saying PSN is okay, on an xbox forum is walking a fine line. There will be plenty of people who think you are nothing more than a PS fanboy.

I'd just like to say that i only have experience with XBL but so far i'm loving it and have had no complaints since i first bought the console. Unless they really screw me over, i'll be on XBL for years to come. It really doesn't bother me that i don't get free games on a regular basis, there is so much more that XBL offers that keeps me coming back.

Are you even aware of PSN+? That is WAY better than what XBL has to offer. Sure PSN doesnt have party chat or voice messaging; but do XBL members receive special discounts twice a month on downloadable games or goodies, sometimes. And it is usually shit that no one wants.

From what I understand of PSN+ (I'm never gonna bother with it since I've only played one PS3 game online and also got the Platinum for said game), anything that is listed as "Free" will get taken away from you once your PSN+ subscription is up.

No, actually its not powered by Gamespy - powered by myself.

People on this site tend to bash PS3 for no reason; especially if they dont even own one.

So your saying everyone on this site bashes the PS3???
there are lots of people here who own both systems like me but i can admit that i dont like the PS3 so i dont use it, its collecting dust in my closet.
also people on the PS3trophies.org sister site are just as bad if not worse. you cant mention xbox360 without someone making some smart ass remark. or just being a straight up douchebag, anyways people have their preferences, but i dont agree on senseless fanboyism. you can say you dont like a system but dont act like a child doing it. but max was right about the red dead co-op pack though.

How about we stick to the original topic of whether the 360 is getting an exclusive character or not.

With all the early copies floating about we should see soon.

That is about the only piece of premium DLC that has ever been released to XBL members. BUT, it was R*'s decision to have it for free because they knew it should have been in the game, but could not have it ready on launch day.

Not going to bash it because I own a PS3 myself, but I prefer Live's setup. Also, the PSN+ isn't really free. I mean, you ARE paying for PSN+. Granted, you get some cool bonuses, but those bonuses arent "free".

I'm not a fanboy, either. In fact I hate console wars. But my brother owns a PS3 and a 360, and I was Sony until the PS3 and switched to Xbox360 for economic reasons, mainly that I couldn't afford a PS3 at the time.

I do know that until recently there was no subscription service for PSN, it was free and the engine for their live is ran by GameSpy (or at least was). I also know that the live in comparison to XBL is shite, and just like Annalie the majority of the time my bro's PS3 is a paperweight.

I'm not looking to start some huge war or debate because, as previously stated, they are stupid. I'm simply going by known experience.

I'm sorry to say that you failed in trying to not sound like a PS3 fanboy. You keep trying to tell us that you aren't, but doggedly arguing the PS3 is better than Xbox360 is counter intuitive to your supposed position on the matter. PSN is a wreck generally speaking. Free doesn't mean better. It's kind of like saying that Runescape is better than World of Warcraft (I'm not a fan of WoW but I know where to give credit when credit is due) simply because Runescape is free to play. Paying to be able to play online is a nuisance, but at least it results in a better online experience as has been pointed out. The chat on PSN is a joke and matchmaking's a mess. As for the free stuff, I suppose Sony has to find some way to keep people around. I don't think anybody would disagree that Microsoft are hyperfocused on the bottom line, but they have been offering a lot of deals lately for some of their best stuff and they've had giveaways and the like in past. Also, this has nothing to do with online play, but PS3 has some rather boneheaded local multiplayer. I find it really annoying that I can't sign in along side my brothers when we play something on the PS3 unless it's Little Big Planet. Back to Mortal Kombat, unfortunately I won't have money to get it on release day but I'm going to try and get it as soon as I can. I hate that we're getting cold-shouldered on exclusive content but this game just looks too damn good too pass up even without a console-exclusive character to kick ass with.

Psn and Xbl have both got there good and bad points, i use both only because both are free (YES EVEN GOLD XBL) if i had to pay for the service then i would go with Xbl just because of party chat nothing else.

I have way more games on the Ps for obvious reasons but i choose to play on xbl more as most of my friends and family are there.
No fanboyisiom here just an open minded gamer who likes to game!
PSN:drunkXBL both good for there own reason.
