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.

Kratos+MK= Kick Ass!
hmmm... not really interested in it...
all MK characters will tremble and fall before kratos
Thats pretty cool.
Man i wish i had a psp3, but which character is 360 going to get. Hope is a good one.
As much as I would like to say that anyone has a chance of killing the God of War, they are all going to go the same way as Posiedan or Hermes or Hades (my favorite kills).
I wonder if you can use all his weapons from GOW ?
This is the second time Kratos was guest appearance in a game. First time was, as you know, Soul Caliber on the PSP which had the graphics and physics but didn't fully deliver on gameplay. I'm hoping NetherRealm and Warner Bros. can take that bad past and just show everyone that Kratos destroys anyone that comes in his way. His title is "God of War", he defeats Greek Gods! So I don't think Sub Zero should be a problem. :)

Did not know.
Kratos + Mortal Kombat = Epic. I look forward to kicking but as one of my favorite video game characters ever. I'm really glad it's for the PS3. I think I'll pre-order it, not a big fan of large crowds fighting over a game.
Bad-ass combo! I might actually buy this game after taking a long hiatus from MK.
He looks perfect for MK. I preordered the Kollectors Edition months ago.
God of Kombat.
