The lights are on
Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios have released some more Mortal Kombat goodies, including the first look at the PS3 version's bonus character, Kratos, and details about the game's preorder incentives and bonus editions.
It looks like MK fans are going to have some decisions to make before the game's April 2011 release. First up, there's the issue of platform. The PlayStation 3 version includes two exclusives--God of War's Kratos as a playable character and support for stereoscopic 3D. There's no word yet on whether the Xbox 360 version will include an exclusive character yet, which could keep at least some players from pulling the pin.
In addition, there are several versions of the game as well as retailer-specific preorder bonuses. There will be three versions of the game: standard, Kollector's Edition, and the Tournament Edition. Here's what each one includes.
There are also three different preorder bonuses, which are given out by different retailers. Each of them offers an exclusive classic playable character skin and the character's original fatality. GameStop has Scorpion, Best Buy offers Sub-Zero, and Amazon is doling out Reptile.
GameStop is the parent company of Game Informer.

Awesome. Simply awesome.
@ jose fernandez, just get an adapter for the 360 controller to work on PS3 (they exist, and were, in fact, in a GI issue a while back) that solves both of your dilemmas.
From all the games that are exclusive for X-Box, the best would be Gears of War's Marcus or Halo's Arbiter (whichever of the two, or a new gorier one, like what Dead or Alive did with Sparta #???)
I will get the PS3 version because I always thought Kratos would be cool in Mortal Kombat.
What a BAD ASS trailer! I suck at MK, BUT this will have Kratos, I might just buy this cuz of him and him only. Very tempting
WHAT>!? Downloadable Fatalities is the GREATEST IDEAS EVER!!!!!
Saw this on Spike, looked pretty effing sweet. I think it inspired me to go with the PS3 version, I would love to tear up the competition with the blades of Kratos on my side. We'll have to see if the 360 offers someone even more brutal, if that's possible.
MK FOR EVER.
Great exclusives for the PS3. I'm not purchasing MK, but I'll rent it through GameFly.
Here's your 360 exclusive character list:
Alicia (Bullet Witch), The Agent (Crackdown), Markus Fenix (Gears), Master Chief (Halo), Kameo, Joanna Dark (Perfect Dark), Baldur (Too Human), or Alan Wake (lol). My choice would be Baldur. Pit the Greek God vs. the Norse God.
Why oh why did they make the stick out of old UMK3 button layout and HAPP parts? >.>
when is the release day.... cus my fighting game will be marvel vs capcom 3... hope its late in the year for MC....
