It's been rumored for a long while, and the PlayStation blog just confirmed it, a Mortal Kombat (2011) demo will be available on the PlayStation Network for PlayStation Plus members on March 8th, 2011. Yes that's next week! PlayStation Plus is a premium version of the PlayStation Network that costs $18 for 3 Months, or $50 for a year. After one week it will be available for non-Plus subscribers and eventually will be available for Xbox 360 users.



It's likely this version is also the same version that will be available at the Mortal Kombat Truck Tour that is starting to tour the country today. It's already known that the PAX East Demo is different which leads us to believe that this is similar to the version going on tour. We'll known soon enough though.

wow i didnt think they would come out with a demo.
March 3rd, 2011 10:39 AM CST - Jinko
Well the did say they'll be doing something they've never done before. This is it! I somewhat want to drop $18 for the Plus Membership, JUST for the demo. Sony must've paid them big time. Multi-platform games usually get the Xbox love first (from what I've seen in the years).
March 3rd, 2011 10:40 AM CST - Beholder
Well.. Sony just sold one more Playstation Plus subscription LOL
March 3rd, 2011 10:42 AM CST - Cinos
I honestly wasn't expecting this. Can't wait to get my hands on the Demo

Before people go crazy, it will later be available on the Xbox and for non-psn+ subscribers on the 15th of March: http://www.strategyinformer.com/news/11281/warner-releases-mortal-kombat-demo-on-8th-march "PlayStation Plus subscribers will have exclusive access to the demo until 15th March when it opens up to everyone." "The demo will later be available for download on Xbox Live." "The demo will allow gamers to fight with Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Mileena and Johnny Cage in two of the games most renowned arenas - the Living Forest and the Pit. There's also an arcade ladder for one or two players." If you didn't see Pat's comment, :D But it also does tell you what it contains, four fighters, two stages, arcade ladder.

So once the demo is released, we'll be able to continue playing it until Release day right?

I cant wait one more week...
March 3rd, 2011 10:49 AM CST - ShukenshaKawazu
I jumped to conclusions when it said PSN plus only but after reading and realizing all ps3 owners get it the week after I'm glad...it is just going to suck with mid-terms and assignments happening that same week
March 3rd, 2011 10:50 AM CST - FatalJake
i was pissed till i read that it will be available a week later to everyone, now i kan't wait for March 15th :D

Not interested. Aprtil 19th is a little over a month away. The anticipation and excitement building up to that date is all I need. I'll get my first hands-on experience next Friday at the bus tour but otherwise that's it.
March 3rd, 2011 11:32 AM CST - ZoopSoul
I'm ticked off that they do not have one month subscribers available on the PSN Plus options. I only see cards for 3 or 12 months.
March 3rd, 2011 11:34 AM CST - rinc-e
Play3.de (german ps3) says that demo has 4 Playable Characters (SubZero, Scorpion, Johny Cage, Mileena) and Fatalitys are also in. Stages will be Living Forest and The Pit. Modes Single Player and 1on1 .. Daaamn Excited! :D edit: just checked their source, everything is there: http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2011/03/03/playstation-plus-exclusive-mortal-kombat-demo/

Will we be able to keep the Demo and play it until April 19th?

Yup. Also, PS+ just got 1 more 3 month subscriber. 3 month subscription is only $18, compared to the $50 for the whole year. After the first 2 month of MK being out, I probably won't be using the PS+ service anyways. EDIT: My Birthday is on the 24th, so this will be an early Birthday present
March 3rd, 2011 11:40 AM CST - Kandy_Man
Is this a worldwide release date? Being in the UK things usually come a little later and I don't wanna subscribe to PlayStation Plus if it isn't available in the UK on the 8th.
March 3rd, 2011 11:42 AM CST - methos75
LOL did someone actually just whine and state why does the PS3 get everything early. Really, what the hell planet you living on son cause it ain't Earth. The XB360 gets everything first, COD maps, Fallout DLC, etc and it always gets exclusive stuff like more maps in Homefront and Bulletstorm. MK is honestly the only game outside Batman:AA, another WG game, where the PS3 received any special consideration. LOL geeez, some people just like crying without using thinking things through.

Looks like Australians get the demo too. PlayStation Plus Exclusive: Mortal Kombat Demo Countries: AE, AU, GB, IE, NZ http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2011/03/03/playstation-plus-exclusive-mortal-kombat-demo/

So I guess it's safe to assume this is the "timed exclusive" the official Mortal Kombat Twitter account (@MK_MortalKombat) was talking about a few months back.
March 3rd, 2011 12:25 PM CST - pgd42
wow did not see this coming. Its a great decision to gain more sales too if you think about it. So glad to see WB is pushing this franchise to the max

LOL! I wonder how many PS+ Subscribers were just added into the system because of this announcement hahaha. Edit: Oh! and Shadow Ninja, you're going to flip when you figure out it is actually 40+ days early. The demo is hitting PSN for PS+ subscribers next week March 8th not in April.

Wow, unexpected! As I don't have online acess (on consoles, of course), I won't be able to play it, but at least I can see some feedback from you, and maybe some videos on Youtube

They released a demo of MK1 on the Amiga.... Nitpickality.

Best news ever, I'm just a little worried because I have a XBOX360 and still there isn't a release date... I'm trying really hard to hold my enthusiasm...

Looking forward to this. Also, looks like someone won't be eating their boot covered in ranch.

U can also download demos with the PC and burn it on a disk. For Xbox it works, not sure about PS3. I have to do the same, cause the demo is probably not up on German Xbox marketplace :D
March 3rd, 2011 4:53 PM CST - NathanEHarvey
Is there a certain day of the week demos are usually released, like dvd's and cd's? C'mon XBOX, step your game up.
March 3rd, 2011 5:02 PM CST - Mr.KlickKlick-Durk
Not sure about this, but i really hope it gets released on March 15th for Xbox too. Anything else would be a punch in the face for all Xbox players

XBL usually does updates on Tuesdays at 4am Central Time. So if it's not the 15th, it's gonna be one of the following Tuesdays.

I really hope it comes out on the 15th for XBL, otherwise I'm driving to my cousins house on the 15th to download the demo.

I'm wondering who did the exact same thing as me. I have the XBOX 360 Kollectors edition already bought but I also own a PS 3. I JUST subscribed to Playstation Plus for 3 months JUST so I could play this game a week early. Can't wait!
March 3rd, 2011 10:45 PM CST - reptilesmile
Does anyone know what time of the day this will be available for download on 3/8?

Not buying a PSN+ account, but I did pick up a PS3 today shortly after hearing about this. I'm just gonna wait til the 15th.

This demo would be better if they substituted Mileena with Sonya in my honest opinion.

"Not buying a PSN+ account, but I did pick up a PS3 today shortly after hearing about this. I'm just gonna wait til the 15th." In all honesty man...If you bought a PS 3 after hearing this news, why would paying $18 dollars to play the game next week seem unreasonable? lol.
March 4th, 2011 6:46 AM CST - RyanRagnarok
Because he could use that $18 on something constructive! ...oh wait...
March 4th, 2011 7:42 AM CST - reptilesmile
how bout i had a $20 psn giftcard, i was saving it for the dlc but it worked out good. of course it doesnt hurt ima grown ass man with a job and can buy whatever i want but it feels good i had the giftcard and didnt have to pay $18 for the psplus

I didn't really get it because of hearing this. I'd been looking for one and found a good deal on one on craigslist. I also don't think a week extra of a DEMO is worth $18.
March 4th, 2011 10:37 AM CST - ShawnBronald
Besides getting the Mortal Kombat demo a week early, can anyone justify spending $18 for 3 months of Playstation Plus? I'm not really looking for people telling me to just wait an extra week, I'm merely curious to hear what other benefits or extras Playstation Plus would bring me during those 3 month ( again, benefits/extras that would justify $18 ). I want to play MK9 as soon as possible, but I'm not sure I want to pay 1/3 of what I'm already going to pay for the actual game, just to access a demo that will be $0.00 7 days later. I've heard there are free games that can be downloaded, but can't figure out which games (I've seen some people list PSP games, but I'm not interested in that). Also, are there any additional services or features that can't be accessed via standard PSN? I've seen that PlayStation Plus offers discounts on existing games and content, but I'm certainly not looking to shell out more money. Freebies, extras, anything special.... let me hear it.
March 4th, 2011 1:26 PM CST - Jinko
Well just now I've just heard of Stacking which is free on PSN+. From what I've read, it's available for $15 for standard users. The game looks fun as hell so this justifies getting the Quarter-Yearly Membership. Browsing through the PSN Store, I can see many free games for PSN+ Users. I may even consider getting the Yearly Subscription. But to be honest, I haven't used the PSN Store for months before this news came up.

Interesting, thanks for the info. I'll browse through the PSN store later and see what they've got. I keep going back and forth. One minute I decide I'm going to purchase PSN+, the next I decide it's better to save my money and just wait for the free demo. If I see enough decent looking freebies, I guess I can possibly justify the purchase. Anyone else care to share their opinion?
March 4th, 2011 7:09 PM CST - hagg309
as per this article http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/03/04/mortal-kombat-demo-3d-hands-on-what-youll-get-on-tuesday/ It looks like the demo will not include multiplayer. It's really the only thing I cared about personally, I don't have anyone to play against. Single player is great and all, but the whole fun of mortal kombat to me is "ripping your friend's head off", as the developer in the developer said in the last video.. well how can I do that if all of my friends have moved away? There should be multiplayer in this demo, it would have definitely secured a buy for me.. perhaps I will just rent it now and try it out instead when it comes out. It's great we have these single player modes, but i'm not as excited about this demo now
March 5th, 2011 4:07 AM CST - RyanRagnarok
So you're going to make a "purchase or rent" choice off of the lack of online multiplayer in the... demo? My head hurts trying to think of how that makes sense...

I think you're talking about StackING. I know it's a small detail, but if you're gonna use something as evidence to support an argument, it helps to know small details like that.

Consumers sometimes don't make sense. To me it shows multiplayer is not a priority, I bought marvel vs capcom 3 and wasted $60. You have to stare at a screen for 10 minutes waiting in line for other players, which is fine, but you can't even spectate matches in progress. No way in hell I'm wasting money again if it's like that.. I'm all multiplayer, so definitely going to rent first before taking any chances again.. so basically if the demo had multiplayer, and it was fun.. It would have sealed a buy for me. If no demo had ever come out I would have rented it, because of the mvc3 experience I had.. I'm just kind of disappointed there no multiplayer in it.. It would have been fun kicking your ass before April 19th comes.
March 5th, 2011 2:09 PM CST - mkray41
I'm looking forward to seeing that video montage after beating the Ladder mode; I wonder what secrets they'll unveil. Also, I wanna see the Toasty! guy too lol. I'm kinda glad they didn't put multiplayer in, makes the wait for online play that much more worth it imo.

I know i sounds a bit crazy, but i seriously thought about buying a PS3 (im on XBox) just for the early demo and sell the console after the MK release :/ But at the end i think that goes a bit too far

If you're "friends" refuse to hop off MvC3 for this then they aren't true fans. Or good people. Not good people at all.

I threw down my $18 for PSN+ on Thursday night. Then, I got sidetracked by the video section of PSN, ending up watching 127 hours, and completely cried at the ending.
March 5th, 2011 5:10 PM CST - spartan21
I was thinking whether I should wait until March 15th, but I know that once the demo comes out on March 8th, I'll be dying of anxiousness to play the game, so I decided instead of suffering a whole week, I'll just subscribe for 3 months and relax. Besides, there are other goodies on the PS Plus like Sonic the Hedgehog, Stacking, and others. I have just subscribed a few minutes ago...can't wait until the 8th!
March 5th, 2011 7:51 PM CST - Jade
The 3 month PP is only $17.99, anyways. Year long one is $49.99, I think.

It's just lyrics from Molotov Solution and a picture of Scorpion(my favorite character) haha. Where is that Deadpool quote from? I remember it, just it slips my mind. D: Oh and on topic, I have a countdown timer on my computer for both the actual release date and demo date. My roommates find it funny to make fun of me for it.

I understand that, and I would've enjoyed fighting(and quite possibly) losing to the lot of you on March 15th but a DEMO should be to see the quality of the game itself. Not a... pre-release version of the game. There will be multiplayer in this and it will have spectating(speculation, but Boon said something like he wanted it to be true to the Arcade experience) so I think he should've been a bit more grateful then he was.

As an Xbox guy, I don't mind PSN+ getting first dibs (as stated PS3 gamers do kind of get dicked around a lot), but the whole "PSN + March 8, regular PSN March 15, Xbox Live some time later" is a little unnerving. How come we can't get a solid date to get all hands-down-the-pants-y over?

I read a question similar to yours earlier today and the fact is, XBOX has stopped selling as well as it used to and there are actually far more players on the PSN now. I am not trying to incite a console war, I'm just going to say this. Game companies are realizing that to cater to the majority, they need to cater to Playstation now. More members, more money. Before, the only reason companies catered to you XBOX players is because you had more players and more systems sold. Now that's Playstation.

Okay, so I finally decided to sign up for PSN+ ($18 isn't that bad and there are some other extras that will make up for the price, not even including the MK9 demo). Anyway, last night I logged into my PSN account (from my PC) and went to add funds to my wallet. Since I already had a little over $3 in my wallet, I only needed to add $15. PSN gives you the option to add $5, $10, $25, $50 and $150 (or the amount plus what you have in your wallet already that will add up to $150). Since I only needed $15, I realized I'd need to make 2 transactions (I don't use PSN that much, so I wasn't completely aware that you could have PSN automatically deduct the exact cost of whatever you buy directly from your credit card... more on that in a minute). So first, I purchased $5. That went off without a hitch and it was added to my wallet. I went back to add the remaining $10 and be on my way to a fresh, 3-month PSN+ subscription (and, subsequently, early access to the MK9 demo!). I selected the $10 option, clicked to add it and then got a message that my 'credit card information was invalid'. Huh? I went back and tried again.... same message. I tried re-entering my CC info, but still nothing. I then noticed the option for the automatic payment. I configured my account for this and booted up the ol' PS3. I selected the PSN+ subscription, it said it would charge me $9 and change and I clicked purchase.... ERROR. What the hell? My final attempt was to add a totally different credit card to my PSN account and, you guessed it, got the same errors. To say the least, I'm not very happy. Anyone else face this dilemma? I guess I could pick up a PSN card at the store and add the funds that way, but I'm afraid I'll do that and then get another error and be left with a worthless card. It's starting to look like I should have stuck with my instinct and waited until the 15th to get the demo for free.

I went to Target and bought a PSN+ 3 Month Card to avoid all this drama. Hope you find a way to fix your issue. Have you contacted support yet? Also readers do you guys want a MK Demo Forum for discussion of the game demo or would you rather not silo the demo stuff off and instead have extra forums for things like characters, etc?

Make a demo forum until the game launches.

I did the same at Best Buy, they sent me a 30$ gift card for a screw up on their part so it worked out perfectly.

Is the demo coming to Xbox Live?
March 6th, 2011 2:09 PM CST - Eks
Yeah, but they haven't said when. Probably the same time it's on PSN for free.

Then by all means, but you'd honestly just be getting a taste of your own medicine. I had to wait for Fallout DLC's because of my choice in system. I think you can wait patiently for the Demo due to your choice in system. Either way, I'm just happy the PS3 is getting some love.

I really don't mind spending $18 for the PSN+ and besides, its MK

Wow some of the PS3 players seem to really enjoy rubbing this in the Xboxers' faces.

Let's be honest, if 360 got it first, they'd be doing the same thing.

That's because PS3 users get dicked around a lot so it's about time we get something awesome before Live.

I've been apart of PS+ since it was announced last june at E3 and I can say it hasn't been the greatest $50 I've ever spent but at least its now getting something worth while for once.

I think there is a huge difference between waiting for a DLC for a game u already have, or waiting for a brandnew demo anyone wants to play. Anyway, we just can hope it comes on 15th with the PS3 demo.
March 7th, 2011 3:15 AM CST - RyanRagnarok
I wasn't making a comparison. I was simply saying that we have had to wait more often then you all have had to. And yes, I am thoroughly enjoying rubbing this in 360 owners faces. Maybe now PS3 owners will finally see more exclusive/earlier content. I can only hope.

Just an update: To make a long story short, I finally was able to sign up for PSN+. Great, right? Well sorta. As far as I'm concerned, I've pretty much just spent $18 for a Mortal Kombat demo (one that will be FREE, I think, one week from tomorrow). But what about the glorious freebies that are included with a PSN+ subscription, you ask? I'll say this: Sony is sneaky! After finally being able to join PSN+, I decided to go and download the plethora of free goodies they were offering. The first was Stacking. I clicked download and got a message basically telling me that while the game was totally free because I was a PSN+ subscriber now... it was only free and playable while I was a PSN+ subscriber. Translated: Once my PSN+ subscription runs out, I can no longer access any of the supposed freebies associated with the service. Really wish I had known that in the beginning. I was really only subscribing to access the MK demo early, but figured it was a smart buy and good deal because of the freebies. Probably should have taken the issues I had signing up as a hint! The morale of this story is: NOTHING IS FREE! /end_rant

Free or paid, I was planning on getting this demo, ever since January when some the HD Kollection speculation was STILL going on.
