Okay so I have been thinking about this for a while now but I figured I would bring my theory to the good people here at GB. I know that Ed Boon said in a recent interview that 360 players can expect something special and I'm pretty sure that they wouldn't have a character exclusive to the PS3 and not add an exclusive character to the 360. People have been saying that it's gonna be Master Chief or something like that and while that could happen, I personally feel that it will be a 360 character whose name begins with the letter K. Kratos is in the PS3 and we all know about Mortal Kombats love of spelling everything with the letter K instead of C so it would make sense to have a character whose name begins with that letter. The only problem is I can't think of any 360 exclusive character whose name begins with a K. I guess they could re-name Master Chief to Master Khief but I would think they would have more creativity than that. Anyways, what do you guys think? Can you think of any 360 exclusive character whose name begins with K?
My thoughts on a possible 360 exclusive character
I thought they chose Kratos because he is all about the dismemberment and extreme violence, rather than the letter K being in his name...
As for whether 360 gets an exclusive character because 360 players can "expect something special" ... who knows. It could be something else.. another environment, different skins or some other band-aid thing. Unless they've been planning a character for a while I doubt they'll put one in now, and I doubt it would need to be someone whose name begins with K. If they wanted to be lame I'm sure they'd just slap Master Chief or that dude from GoW in there, but i wouldn't want either of them.
EDIT: you're better off trying to think of people who match the mood of the game, like Kratos does. And someone whose owners don't mind their character getting dragged through a spinning metal hat crotch first while screaming.
" Francis York Morgan "Yes please!
Seriously though, I recently read that Ed Boon confirmed that there won't be an exclusive Xbox 360 character. Don't officially quote me on it, but while I think there will be something for 360 owners of the game, it won't be a character.
It's still far enough out that I wonder if they think it'll be a bombshell or something. I want to pre-order my copy this week but I've been teeter tottering which version. I got the PSN demo and love it but haven't tried on Xbox yet (mix up with my internet cable needing to be shared by the kids' computer and my Xbox so it's not been on Live for a while).
I wish they would just say "Look, it's out in a few weeks so here you go..." and lay all their stuff on the table be it Xbox content or characters or a tin box or whatever. The not KNOWING and only GUESSING makes it worse because if it's a case of console specific characters that could decide which version I get even though it'll likely not be as good as the normal cavalcade of...er, excuse me the Kavalkade of Kharacters.
Anyway, however this turns out I am going to freaking LOVE playing whoever, that demo shot me from a "nah" to a "Hellz to the yea!"
" A Halo or Gears stage would look awesome but not the characters. "I think Marcus Fenix would fit in well enough against characters like Kano, Sonya and Striker.. and the dude has a chainsaw gun, he'd definitely have some interesting moves and fatalities.
Cliffy B himself said he'd like to see him in the game, it's not completely out of the question to expect him as DLC.
But again, it's only been said that the 360 version will have exclusive content, it won't necessarily be a character.
So they are on record saying that there will be something exclusive for the 360 version?
I can't for the life of me figure out why they would wait so late to tell people (unless it's crazy lame).
I know people said it's not a character but man oh man would Skorge ever fit the bill - and he's already got a questionable K in his name!
Wouldn't mind seeing someone from Gears(I know it's been said millions of times now)
Halo Universe ehh, not dark enough IMO to be in MK.
I also wouldn't mind seeing someone from perhaps KI, Sabrewulf could fit in nicely. I'd love to see a Werewolf in MKU, they've had vampires with Nitara and her realm so why not?
