The long-awaited patch 1.02 for fighting game Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection has been released.
This week's European release of the PlayStation Network version of the game came with the update, designed to improve online play.
The patch was expected to roll out elsewhere overnight, NetherRealm chief Ed Boon Tweeted, but as TRMK notes, it has failed to materialise on the Xbox 360 or in the US for the PS3 version.
Long-delayed Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection has finally launched on the EU PlayStation Store this week. The compilation contains 2D classics Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 2 and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 in one bundle.
The game had originally been due for an August launch alongside its Xbox Live Arcade counterpart, but continually failed to appear, something Sony blamed on a "technical issue".
Back to Karkand, the first Battlefield 3 expansion, went live earlier this week and contains four maps from previous Battlefield instalments. PlayStation 3 gamers get it a week before their PC and Xbox 360 friends.
Fabulous remastered game Beyond Good & Evil HD costs only 240 Microsoft Points (£2.06) from Xbox Live Marketplace today.
The promised Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection patch is due out around Tuesday 6th December, Ed Boon has said.
The game was blighted by performance issues that made it unplayable for some online. A patch was promised in early September. It looks like it will arrive three months later.
What's taken so long? "Testing, submitting & approvals is a LONG process," Boon Tweeted.
Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection tops the inaugural monthly PlayStation Network download chart, Sony has announced.
UPDATE: Warner Bros. just issued Eurogamer with the following statement:
An upscaled version of Resident Evil: Code Veronica headlines this week's PSN Store update. It's available for £15.99.
FIFA 12 arrives to download on Friday - for the privilege of saving yourself a walk to the shops you'll pay £54.99 on PlayStation 3 and £31.99 on PSP.
Battlefield 3's open beta rolls out on Thursday, while gamers can help themselves to PSN-exclusive shooter Rochard, freemium role-player Free Realms and new Dead Nation DLC from today.
Downloadable PlayStation 3 title BloodRayne: Betrayal headlines this week's list of new downloadable content on the PSN Store.
The game is a 2D sidescroller featuring half-vampire series star Rayne. It's out on Xbox Live Arcade today too, although when bought through the PlayStation Network Play promotion gamers get a BloodRayne: Betrayal avatar item for PlayStation Home.
PS3 gamers can nab a demo of God of War Collection: Volume 2, which features PlayStation Portable Kratos adventures God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta remastered in HD and 3D compatible.
The PlayStation 3 version of Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection appears to have been delayed in Europe.
Fighting trilogy re-released today.
This week sees the return of a long-running racing series, pitted against the birth of a new shooter IP.
The Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection will be available to download on PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade on 31st August, publisher Warner Bros. has announced.
UPDATE: Warner has provided Eurogamer with more information on Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection.
"For the first time ever, the original Mortal Kombat arcade trilogy - Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 2 and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 - have been brought together into a single collection which will be available for download in late summer 2011," the publisher said.
"We are very excited to finally have the first three Mortal Kombat games available in one download package for long-time and new fans to play," said Ed Boon, creative director, NetherRealm Studios. "With the release of our 2011 Mortal Kombat, and its return to 2D game play, players have been asking for these classic titles and we are happy to deliver them."
