That's another download for the 15th, why couldn't it be the 8th. Oh well, something else to play while waiting for the game. At least we get to see how the controls fell before it's out.

Glad I have a PS3, but Damn I'm not paying for PS+ just to play the demo a week early. I'm glad they are doing a demo though, because I truly want this game to be great, but need to play it before I shell out the cash for the Kollectors Edition.

I got PS+ a couple months ago and I do not regret it at all. Tons of free games just for having it, exclusive demos (including this one), discounts, themes, etc.

I'm wayyy too excited for the 8th.

wth man! you gotta have psplus to get it on the 8th.. Its bad enough paying for xbox online.. but ill never pay for playstation online. Im guessin this is gonna be one of the few Mulitplat games that have been developed on the ps3.. might have to get it on the ps3 then if thats the case. but ive always use my ps3 for sony exclusives and everything else for 360 since the games are developed on 360.

he's RIGHT dude. do some research before insulting the guy.

he didn't say games are always developed on 360, he was saying MOST CROSS PLATFORM games are. he's CORRECT. any developer will confirm this. microsoft has better developing tools, so most (not all, or always, or whatever the fuck you THOUGHT you read) cross platform games are made for 360 then ported over to the PS3. that's why a lot of times, you see games that SHOULD look and run better on PS3 (it IS a more powerful system after all) but suffer compared to the 360 versions. I thought this was common knowledge??

Not once in his post did he say MOST. He said "everything else for 360 since the games are developed on 360."

I wasn't judging him on what he said about porting, it's the way he wrote his whole post. Especially when he said he didn't want to pay for "playstation online". It's nothing like xbox live.

Also, I guess I was looking at it like he was saying every single cross platform game (even PC) is developed on the xbox, then just ported to the other consoles. That's why I said "LOL".

So calm down champ. Let's play some catch in the backyard later, huh?

bad ass. d/led it last night. Fluid controls, great graphics and the animations are SIIIIICKKKK!! The analog stick was difficult for me, so I used the D-pad with more success (one of the reasons I'll probably opt for PS3 version...360 Dpad sucks). it feels like you're playing MK2 in high def, which is pretty much all I wanted. MK is back.

Yeah Me Too I carried it everywhere like a Bible, But I had the MKII Guide By Infotainment World Books (like the one below), Lol The Pages are loose, cock-eyed and uneven now & The Binding has been Taped & Glued More times than Cher lol. It looks like the Grail Diary from Indiana Jones.

It even had an Awesome Rumors page, including fake pics of an Animality for Sub-Zero, a Red Male Ninja called 'Red Robin' & Living Forest & Deadpool Hooks Stage Fatalities. The Best Part: those Rumors all Ended up in future MK games. I have to try & post a scan of the page

I bet its like the demo for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 (or maybe it was Ghostbusters Demo?) it was said to come out on a Tuesday & it actually came out Tuesday going into Wednesday morning around 3:30-4:00am. Some place got it Before Midnight in the Western US.

I had it happen I was waiting for a Demo for a game & it didnt come out until a week & Half before the game, when it was supposed to come like a Month before on Major Nelson's Blog's calander... so who knows lol

Let's just hope that when we do get it, if the Xbox exclusive is a game play mode, it's available in the demo, and is so awesome, when the PS3 users find out about it, they'll start crying. :P That I would say would be more than worth all this uncertainty as to when we'll be getting our hands on the game. :) Like TEBellant, I don't really care when we get it, but it would be nice to know when it will be, rather than just "later." Hopefully the adage "Good things come to those who wait," holds true for us. ;)

I see people discussing the d-pad a lot on this thread and in other places. Is there a reason why the game doesn't control well with the analog stick on the PS3's controller?

I don't like using arcade-style sticks so I'm hoping the Xbox analog stick feels comfortable. I don't see why it wouldn't, but I'm seeing enough reports of people insisting on using a d-pad to question it. Can anyone shed some light?

jswartz0181

Of course, I know I'm not the only one who finds the PS controls very uncomfortable/inconvenient in that department, and likes the Xbox control layout FAR more. Hopefully that's the issue for them, and thus would be more of a non-issue for us.

While the controller looks really cool I'm hoping I don't have to buy one. That's why I'm curious about the specifics of the control scheme. I find the thumbstick to be in a much more comfortable position than the d-pad is.

Hopefully I'll find out soon if the Xbox demo gets released. I'm sure someone's making some money off of this exclusive thing with PS3 but it's sad that it leaves Xbox gamers out of the loop for a while.

People are talking more about d pads because this game has movements like this; <,>,^... ect instead of quarter circles or half moons that can easily be pulled off with the arcade stick, or analog stick.

As for the demo release date;

PS+ March 08
PSN March 15 (got it last night 8pm EST)
360 March ?? hasent been announced, I my self was hoping for today as PSN got it yesterday.

03-16-2011, 01:25 PM
Cool, Mortika, thanks. I would assume the movements would have been created with analog sticks in mind considering those are the controllers the game will be played with. It looks like half the reviews I see discuss the d-pad and the other half just say how great the controls were. Guess I'll see when we get the demo!

I would not fret about controllers and what not guys, this happens everytime a fighter comes out, people start worrying about controllers, the standard XBOX pad is fine, I have 1000 Mortal Kombat Vs DC with a standard pad, and almost done SF4 / SSF4 trials, it really is not so bad, it just hurts your thumb lol.

I bought a Ken SF4 fightpad and its been dumped in my drawer for months as it sucks compared to standard pad. I too panicked when SF4 came out, and wasted £50.

The XConverter 360 is the only thing I use for fighting games I use the PS2 pad for DOA 4, SCIV, Tekken 6, and soon to be MK. The converter also supports PS controllers too but I prefer PS2 over PS3 anyway cant stand fat triggers. The XCM Crossfire converter is more expensive and much crappier

i just got the demo on the ps3 today. heres how it looks & plays.

graphics are awesome! fantastic charater & backgrounds.

controls, i used the d-pad & it worked perfectly. the moves are easy to pull off. they have the moves listed when you pause during a match.

i didnt get a chance to do those bone crushing moves. the AI got me good though. i dont know how to do them. also i dont know the finishers either. AI didnt do finishers, just bone crushers & their moves.

i'm glad they went back to simple controls. i have the m vs c te stick for 360. i would like to see how good the 360 will be. but ps3 gets kronas <sp?>.

living forest was awesome. even had people hanging from the trees! you get to throw 2 different ways now. also how you throw is unique to each character. ie sub zero stabs you with ice blades & tosses you. great stuff!

this is not trolling/flaming, just info for those who dont have a ps3 :) hope this helps, i was against MK. now its a toss up between ps3 or 360. cant wait to see the 360 demo! either way this game is gonna be fighter of the year! they went back to old school controls. now everyone can enjoy pulling off moves with ease! but still havnt figured out finishers/babalities yet. Tons in this demo which is great! bring on 360 demo then bring on mmmmoooorrrtttaaalll mmmmooonnnnddaaayyy!

As Far as the Demo Goes I Dont think NetherRealm studios & WB Games will make it a PS3 Early Exclusive Next time around since the PS3 system code was released a while back making it the Easiest system to hack now & therefore had these super Leaks.

Also NetherRealm will probably Strip the MK Sequel's Demo of any items that can be leaked to reveal roster & Hidden warriors.
But after thinking about it, I realized the Sequel Probably wont get a Demo after This Debacle.

But Here's to hoping we still get our Demo this Time lol
