Mortal Kombat II This Thursday |

Mortal Kombat II is scheduled to be released on the PlayStation network this Thursday.

Mortal Kombat II

I’ve read much excitement about this release on various forums. Can someone explain this to me?

The Midway Arcade Treasures 2 disc had this game as well as Mortal Kombat 3 and eighteen other games (I’ve remember most of them) as well as all kinds of extra bonus pics and interviews and goodies. That disc cost $20 when it originally came out and I’m sure it’s much cheaper now. That compilation disc seems to be a far better deal than this PlayStation Network release.

Who cares about this release when this game has been readily available for many years for dirt cheap prices on a variety of platforms?

I think many people just like the theatrical release aspect of it. Few people really feel like digging through a bargain bin and buying this for $5 or downloading a PC ROM and playing by themselves. But, when a game like this is released on the Playstation Network or XBLA, it makes lots of headlines, and gets lots of people talking about it. And if nothing else, content like this pads the release schedule.

    MK has always been a social game. Midway Arcade Treasures 2 did have MKII and more.

    MKII being the best in the series. What makes this special is the online aspect. Not to mention leader board. Not to mention this is the first classic on PSN

    When I was last in an arcade was when this game was the king. Was a thrill to put in 50 cents and beat everyone in line. On Arcade Treasures you can play this game all you want and that’s fine if you have friends that play this game and are good. But online makes it more like the arcade as you can play strangers to test your skill.

    I just hope the net code is smooth. After the SFII on 360 complaints Sony has a lot to prove with this one. If it’s too laggy to play a smooth game then hype of future releases will be low. If they nail it then it opens op the gates for more classics to be relived online.

    This probably won’t be available on the European Playstation Store tomorrow, will it? If it ever reaches Europe, it will probably be £3.49 in the UK, won’t it? I guess it’s not too expensive, especially if you haven’t really played it before and it’s got online play. I would probably buy it if the Playstation Store would accept my card but it doesn’t, which is weird because it let me buy and download Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection but now, it’s decided that it won’t let me add funds to my wallet.

  • Mortal Kombat II brings excitement because no other mortal kombat than MK2 ever caused so many arcade room challenges as this game.

    When this game came out, people lined up to play it in all arcade rooms of Caracas for the first 6 months after it was released. People would study moves and strategies, and this was on an era where internet wasn’t as ubiquitous as it is now, it was a lot of magazine reading, word of mouth and afternoons after school spent on the arcades trying to be the best, playing all day long for just 3 quarters and saving noobs, playing 2 rounds for each of their battles, defending them agaisnt MK2 Bullies.

    No other game I’ve seen has caused so much bad-assness as MK2.

    Its available in many platforms yes, but online play. This is gonna be the most played arcade game of Xbox live hands down.

    The 360 got Ultimate MKIII. I think MK II is better, so im glad the PS3 gets it instead 🙂
