Mortal Kombat was released today, and while that's great news for MK fans, it also confirms bad news for Xbox 360 gamers. Despite months of speculating, Mortal Kombat will not have an Xbox 360 exclusive character to counter Kratos, the PS3 exclusive. I can rest assured knowing the devs who worked on the game were on my side though, they wanted to include an Xbox 360 character too.
Eurogamer spoke with Ed Boon about why the decision was made to not include an Xbox 360 exclusive character. "Unfortunately, the circumstances didn't allow us to make a 360 exclusive," he told them. "I'm not allowed to talk too much about it, but I can tell you we certainly wanted to do an exclusive for 360, but that's all I can say. It was not a decision we made where we said, oh, let's not do one for the 360."
If it wasn't up to them, then who was it up to? Who decided the PS3 version should have a feature the Xbox 360 lacked? Xbox gamers: are you bummed? PS3 gamers: are you glad?
Mortal Kombat is out now for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
