Midway is seeking to capitalize on the buzz that Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe is making on current generation consoles, with the announcement of Mortal Kombat: Kollection for last generation's Sony PlayStation 2. Kollection will feature Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon and the action-adventure game Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks all in one box exclusively for the PlayStation 2.
"Mortal Kombat has been a pinnacle fighting franchise for well over a decade now and this is an ideal package for fans and collectors in terms of content and price point," said Mona Hamilton, vice president of marketing, Midway Home Entertainment. "With the PlayStation(R)2 still holding the highest market share of any home console, we saw this as the perfect opportunity to offer an incredible value to our consumers as we ramp up for the highly anticipated launch of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe."
Mortal Kombat: Kollection will be released in September 2008 for the Sony PlayStation 2 for the price of $29.99. View the full press release.

Nothing here that warrants a purchase. Midway is desperately trying to recoup its losses and this is the lamest attempt they've made thus far. Unless there are some major fixes to the games, why bother? On a more positive note, I'm certain that the success of MK vs DC will drum up the revenue necessary to produce the true next generation MK.

Man I was hoping for a kombo kollection of all the non-3D MK games from MK1-MKT and MKM. I guess I can keep dreaming.

LOL, true, so true. But MK:SM Monks is a great game, but what doesnt make any sense is the absence of MK:DA. It had by far, the best gameplay and potential of the 3-D MK's. But there is no need to buy this collection. Edit: Wait a minute.....this is coming out in September of 2009??? lol

I think that's a typo.

Oops, it was. Supposed to be this year.

Bummer, I too was hoping for something like MK-MK4 as a collection.

Ya when they release all games (MKI, MKII, MKIII, MKT, MKIV, MKDA, MKD, & MKA) in one kollection playable on the new systems, ill pick it up. But this is pretty cheap for any of the non hardcore MK fans to pick up.
