400? Seems like a ok price.
May 27th, 2011 9:41 AM CST - AlistairWonderland
Boo...not free, oh well.
May 27th, 2011 9:47 AM CST - lothaer
so let me get this right you get all the Klassic Kostumes and Fatalities in one pack for $4.99?
May 27th, 2011 9:50 AM CST - gator
So what happens if you already have 5 of the 7 skins? Will downloading this pack screw up anything since some of them are already unlocked?
May 27th, 2011 9:51 AM CST - PootyMack
so much for "never pay for content that's already on the disc" huh?
May 27th, 2011 9:51 AM CST - Weiland
Yes, you get all of that on-disc content for $4.99.
May 27th, 2011 10:00 AM CST - lothaer
guys its $5 think about it what can you get for $5 these days?
May 27th, 2011 10:01 AM CST - robwill80
What's that in GBP, about £3-£4? An OK price, I guess. I'm not really bothered about the costumes, but I'll get this for the Fatalities.
May 27th, 2011 10:03 AM CST - DCR
I can handle that. They could've gone the Capcom route and charged us a hell of a lot more, plus the package at least contains all the crap that's already on the disc. I still have that 500 or so points left in my account anyway, so what the hell.
May 27th, 2011 10:05 AM CST - ThatRandomGuy42
Is the video avalible else where? Quicktime doesnt work for me.
May 27th, 2011 10:09 AM CST - chessmaster
good news. i was NOT going to pay more than $5 for the pack.
May 27th, 2011 10:09 AM CST - Jaclo
Yeah, I'm not going to pay for this. The con...kontent is ALREADY ON THE DISC! Why are people so readily willing to be suckered into paying for something that is ON THE FREAKING DISC?! God, I hate people. Because they chose to charge for this, I will not buy any DLC for this game. Period.
May 27th, 2011 10:09 AM CST - interloko
i spent $150 on my TE and this $hit is already in the disc... i'll not buy this and probably don't buy anything... and prepare yourself for arcade kollection and next year HD kollection... WB wants to squeeze every penny we need to show them or disaprove on this
May 27th, 2011 10:14 AM CST - Kurtis Stryker
If you can't/won't pay $5 for this package, then you're cheap. A very reasonable price for very appealing outfits. Even if it cost more, I'd still purchase the package. Hopefully, we get more packs like this in the future.

You're missing the point. It's not about the price, it's about the fact that there IS a price. The content was available on the very first day, ON THE DISC. I can actually SEE the content in the Krypt as artwork and USE some of the content in one of the challenges. This should be free. If you want to rationalize it so that you feel better about wasting your money, fine, but just keep in mind that you're helping to ruin the industry.

YouTube Video Version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcvlsuDv9xc As far as price is concerned 7 costumes, 3 fatalities, and all of which are on disc? It is a little annoying, but I wouldn't blame NRS. WB or Microsoft are probably the reason they had to charge for it. Microsoft doesn't really do free DLC and WB is out for as much money as they can get. I will purchase this because I want the content and have a free $20 PSN card I won, on disc or not. I do feel like $5 is reasonable for DLC, but not for something that is already on the disc we payed $60-$180 for (including Normal, Kollector's, and Tournament Edition). But anything is better than the Capcom and Call Of Duty rape fests people pay for.
May 27th, 2011 10:42 AM CST - DarkSideOfTheMoon
Im buying this. True fans will buy this regardless.
May 27th, 2011 10:43 AM CST - Ermac2011
Ok so I thought I was trippen but I watched it in slow motion..when scorpion does his classic fatality at the end, rite b4 he spits the fire sub turns into classic smoke..idk if it's n Easter egg or a glitch but if we get classic smoke I'm down..

holy crap i just notices must be a easter egg.
May 27th, 2011 10:53 AM CST - natedoggcata
Man people just love to *****. The content is already on the disk because it was created for the purpose of being free, extra pre order bonuses. If you didnt pre order now you must pay for it. Deal with it. Either pay for it or stop complaining Also its $5 dollars.... can you really not afford $5?
May 27th, 2011 10:54 AM CST - natedoggcata

Its not an easter egg. Its a glitch that everyone has known about since launch. If you do Scorpions Toasty finisher on Sub Zero classic costume it turns him grey
May 27th, 2011 10:56 AM CST - yautjared
gonna buy it, NRS needs incentive (A.K.A $$) to keep coming with more DLC along this year.
May 27th, 2011 11:00 AM CST - jeary
We get it...its on the disc, but until someone figures out how to get it off the disc for free, every true MK fan should want this and $5 isn't enough to break anyones bank. So whiners, find a way to get it off the disc or just shut up and let us be happy about finally getting these!

Whether or not you purchase it with your own money or with a free gift card, you're still sending them the message that you will buy it. $5 is quite reasonable for certain types of DLC, but only when it is, in fact, DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT. Hey, if Warner Bros. only charged $54.99 for the game, new, when it was released, I wouldn't make a big deal out of this. But the fact is that you'll be paying $5 for something you already own.

If that were the case, they would have made it actually DOWNLOADABLE. Also, they wouldn't have allowed you to play in the Klassic skins in the Retro Reincarnation challenge. At least Capcom keeps their on-disc premium "DLC" unplayable. Neatherrealm (or WB) basically said, "Hey...look at this stuff that you can't play with...that we'll make you pay for later." There's the artwork in the Krypt, the extra fatality section in the Moves menu, and the Retro Reincarnation challenge. Stop trying to rationalize it. You're getting ripped off.

I hope this means Classic Smoke and Classic Noob will be available somehow as well. Maybe they'll be unlocked in a new secret.

Why? I'm a true fan of Mortal Kombat, but I'm not a fan of being taken advantage of. There's a difference between being fans of a game and being blind devotees to a corporation.
May 27th, 2011 11:19 AM CST - Magna
Makes me wonder: If they're charging U$4.99 for content already in the disc, how much will they charge for really new content?
May 27th, 2011 11:23 AM CST - Kotryna Arnas
Wow, 400 for 7 skins and 3 fatalities that are on the disk, THAT I ALREADY BOUGHT ???!??? Nice........ So we can assume that they charge from 560-800 per dlc character ??? At least have decency to put this as a free dlc for the shitty effort to fix the net code. It's been over a month and I still cannot play my game, which I paid full sum for.
May 27th, 2011 11:24 AM CST - defcon

What's that in real money?
May 27th, 2011 11:28 AM CST - shadow_dragon
Come on now. I don't get the complaints at all. They practically are giving it away for free at that price and in what way are you being taken advantage of? If they'd decided to give away the pre-order bonuses for free you'd see hundreds of posts here complaining that folks had wasted money on pre-orders when they could've just waited to be given the stuff for nothing. At least now they've released it in such a way that you still have an option on whether you actually want the content or not. You either want it or you don't, whether it's on the disc is irrelevant to me. Imo the only thing NR/WB have done wrong is not made it clear earlier on that this would be released earlier on(regardless of charge). I feel sorry for the very few folks that bought multiple pre-orders just to get the unlocks. TBH what i find suprising is the amount of money NR/WB will be able to make out of simple pallete swaps, for years people moaned about how tacky pallete swaps are and now folks are begging for "classic costumes" to be released that are exactly that. *Le sigh!* At least they're cheap.
May 27th, 2011 11:30 AM CST - louzephyr
I don't mind paying 5 € paying for all the klassic costumes and klassic fatalities, but what about smoke? His klassic costume is allready on the disc, so why the hell isn't it included in the DLC-KLASSIC-COSTUMES-PACK? He is one klassic too, first appearance was in MKII like reptile for example, so why? WHY?

I was thinking the same thing. It still costs less than a pack of smokes, though, so it's not that much.

One doesn't pay EXTRA for pre-orders. The game costs the same whether you pre-order it or not. Therefore, no money is wasted.
May 27th, 2011 11:48 AM CST - Sub-Hero Sandwich
Yeah, figured they'd want $$$ for this. It is annoying, but I bet MS and WB made it into a cash grab. Still, I hate paying for unlock keys (*cough*JillandShumainMvC3*cough*).

May 27th, 2011 11:58 AM CST - Weiland
I just posted something similar to this on the FB post, so I'll post this here too... I don't think the price is awful or expensive at all. In fact, I think it's great that everyone can have them now. The thing that bugs me, was Boon said that we wouldn't have to pay for on disc content. Maybe that was the plan to begin with but WB shut him down. I'm willing to bet this was the case and now Boon and NRS is going to get a lot of flack for it. I just don't like being told one thing and then have the opposite happen. I kinda wish he never said it, because I would right there with a lot of you ready to give them my $5. Had nothing to do with being "cheap." Just the principle of the whole thing.
May 27th, 2011 12:01 PM CST - _Unknown_
I'll get them but I don't understand why dont they add Classic Smoke and Noob o.O

They already did go the Capcom route by charging us for craps thats already on the disc. So much for FREE DLC. FU NRS
May 27th, 2011 12:07 PM CST - Kobra
This comes to no surprise considering NRS has lied about things before. But I don't mind having to pay a minor fee for on disc content. Namco did the same thing with Soul Calibur IV with the extra star wars character already on the disc.
May 27th, 2011 12:08 PM CST - Eks
The fact that something's on the disc doesn't mean you'll have access to it. That's how DRM works. Technically, the bosses could be unlocked the same way. Some people would love that, but I know I don't and I don't think most people would, either. Also, it's just a few animations (the Fatalities) and model swaps for f***'s sake. I do wish they'd included costumes for Noob and Smoke, tho.

What exactly did they lie about with this issue?
May 27th, 2011 12:14 PM CST - Commander
I could give less than a shit whether it's free or not. It's only $5, and I've wanted Sub-Zero's MK 1 "Spine Rip" and Reptile's MK II "Head Eat" for a while now. So, I'm glad that I'm finally getting it. I've been looking forward to this more than the Skarlet and Kenshi DLC. Give me the Klassic Costumes / Fatalities, Rain, and couple stages (Like The Soul Tomb and Warrior Shine) for DLC, and I'm set.

But there's already some "resourceful" people that will get illegal access to play as the boss characters or the hidden characters you face in arcade like Klassic Smoke and Shadow Noob. In response to the other statement: I agree. Noob and Smoke did get the shaft on this one. Hopefully they will be included in a second retro pack with Cyrax and Sektor.

I honestly think they are going to 7 character costume packs until all characters have another alternate. Noob and smoke will probably be in another one.

They can't play them online, so their actions aren't gonna affect me, so that's a pointless argument.
May 27th, 2011 12:27 PM CST - MK9Scorpion2011
i agree with most of you in regards to Classic Noob and Classic Smoke...I personally think they should be included with these other classic outfits for 5.00 because they were in MK2 I think they are throwing an easter egg in this video to shows us that Classic Smoke and Classic Noob may be available in future DLC with all other DLC...that would be fun to have a Retro Reincarnation Room where Online users pick the classic Outfits to have a match and get that MK2 Feeling using the classic outfits..Honestly I would choose Reptiles Classic outfit over the new one and Ermacs because there new ones look dumb.

I doubt they would do two costumes of the same character to start off with, so Cyber Smoke is probably out (for now). I really kind hope they make Cyber Smoke more like MK3 ave a character, not an extra costume. But the three other characters could be MK3/2 Kung Lao, MK1/3 Kano, MK3 Kabal, MK1/2 Liu Kang, MK2/3 Jax, or any other Klassic cotumes available.

How much you pay depends on what you buy and where you buy it from. Exclusive content restricts that choice. Ermac for example was not a pre-order bonus for the normal game, nor was scorpion a pre-order bonus at a store that sold the game cheaper than others.(Sub-zero was supplied at the cheapest most convenient place for me) Additionally the game IS currently cheaper to buy now than it was at pre-order so a saving would've been made at the price of some aptience. All games go down in price, this isn't even considering second-hand purchases or similar. I think my point stands.
May 27th, 2011 2:49 PM CST - Adjun
Actually it's $5.00 for 2 costumes (since it's just male and female ninja palette swaps) and 2 fatalities (assuming most of us already have our pre-order fatality) . PASS! Sorry Boon, not helping you pay off your wife's new Mercedes. Now, THIS supposed 'DLC' pack should have been the reward for the challenge tower. THAT would have been supreme.
May 27th, 2011 2:59 PM CST - KornKombat
4.99 for Content thats already on the disc? 4.99 is what I paid for MKII on PSN! If they are going to charge us 4.99 then I think we should atleast get Klassic Smoke & Klassic Noob Skins too.

Ed Boon is a moron, a complete IDIOT. Liar, **** liar.
May 27th, 2011 3:36 PM CST - BeyondSpectrality
Guys, would you stop bashing Ed Boon. It is either Warner Brothers or Microsoft as to why this content costs money. And I'm sure NRS didn't want to make the 360 users feel anymore left out than they already are, so they charged PS3 users too. Microsoft is very strict with their DLC and cost. Does anyone here pay Left 4 Dead? They wanted to do free DLC for 360, but MS wouldn't let them. Boon stated that DLC prices were still being negotiated, meaning it was in WB's hands not his. So again, please stop blaming Boon. You have every right tobeing upset and your opinion, but I strongly believe it had nothing to do with NRS...at all.

Until someone figures out how to get the"on-disc" content for free, this is the only option for those of us who actually want to play with the Klassics. Technically I get these for free. I sold my Ermac, Scorpion, and 2 Jades on eBay a long time ago. I made enough to buy the game again and the $5 pack.

Just realised something. Klassic Costumes are on the disk. DLC pack making us pay for the stuff on the disk. We do so but we don't even get all of them, Noob and Smoke aren't in the pack. Wassup with that WB/NRS?

I dunno, maybe Ed will make up for this by releasing something else free. Because he said there would be something free for us. Being the hardcore fan I am, I will still buy these. It's a measly $5 and also because I really want the Reptile costume. I like the klassic costume mainly because in the old games I found Reptile awesome due to the fact he was so mysterious and the only time you seen his real face was during the acid spit for a second and when you did the Fatality.

I really want! only the renders of them XD looks great in the start of the video. about the klassic skins...please, show me stg new...I not going to buy stg i already paid when i got my game. A real klassic skin pack is MK1, MK2 and UMK3 style pack they mixed MK1 and MK2 male ninja looking so MK2 and UMK3 version of Male and female ninjas is a really klassic skin pack that i really want. The problem is not the money, the problem is the DLC is not good enough.

I saw this coming actually, ever since I saw "prices are still being negotiated" or something like that somewhere on Boons twitter. And come on guys, It wasn't really Boons decision, so technically Boon isn't a liar.

$4.99 is actually pretty good for 7 kostumes and 3 fatalities. Definitely buying it.

THAT'S AWESOME! I can't wait I think the retro costumes are sooooo cool. I wish that there was something exclusive here like a retro fatality for some of the characters that just have costumes no extra fatalities, or other retro outfits that weren't pre-orders, but maybe those are just ideas for the next D.L.C. That would entice people who may have already gotten the retros they wanted and are satisified if there was new retros that weren't available included.I'm not complaining for 5$ I'm definitely psyched to get my retros! Especially human Reptile! I got Retro Scorpion with my Gamestop Pre-Order for anyone who hasn't seen his TOASTY flaming skull fatality you got to get this package!!!

I kind of assumed we would get the skins for free. I didn't hear anything about a price and wasn't expecting one. But I'm with everyone else it's 5$ .. you use that to get a Big Mac combo .. what difference does it make. 7 skins & 3 fatalities for that price is fine with me. I'm s *TRUE* mk fan (Especially Scorpion lol). But ya if a DLC character is 5-10$ I will buy. But any higher and i'll buy based on what character/package it is. NRS should release DLC characters in a pack of 3 or 5. That would be cool.

$5 is a good price... BUT... he did say we're not paying for on disc-content unlocking. STOP saying things that is not 100% guaranteed. If he never said that then most complaints won't be here.

I agree with this.

lol @ MS bashing. Is it free on PSN? I don't think so.

They forgot 1 Klassic Skin... Where are the Klassic Skin for Noob Saibot?

Do you really think 360 owners would stand for anymore debauchery if PS3 got the DLC for free? If it was MS decision to charge for it, WB probably made the decision to charge both. That way no one's feelings would be hurt. And let's not forget, Microsoft does have a history of forcing companies to charge for their DLC (namely Valve). Either way, I still think the charge had 100% NOTHING to do with NRS and 100% EVERYTHING to do with WB.

This. Everything else is just speculative nonsense.

Everytime I see some snippet of news about this whole bundle pack costing $5, I can't stop laughing when I think about the idiots who spent all that money to get Sub, Scorp or Reptile individually. Some people spent more on the one DLC costume than they did on the entire game. I just can't help but laugh at people's stupidity, and I'll be smiling when I think about those people as I pay a measly $5 for all that DLC next week.

Haha I know! Even I considered going onto eBay and paying for Reptile's klassic. Thank God I didn't.

I don't think a full black character like Noob can be a good costume, expecially in stages like The Tomb :P

I was considering it but then I looked at the prices and thought "oh they will all be released soon on DLC anyways." and I was right.

I'll bet it was originally going to be free, then NRS/WB or whoever saw all the idiots on eBay paying $200+ for skins and got dollar signs in their eyes.

Exactly what I said when I saw a guy buying a reptile for 90€

It would be pretty though.

I find it amusing simply because we paid $60 (game only, on average) for an ENTIRE game full of very nice levels, -alities, characters, alternate costumes, great story, some stuff in the krypt, etc.... We then can pay $5 for a few measly skins and fatalities. Doesn't really equal out in terms of cost:what you get. Of course, everyone wants to make money and plenty of people are probably sporting boners over this content just waiting for it to be available. Well played whoever set the cost, well played.
May 31st, 2011 7:06 AM CST - TheDentedOne
This isn't just for this post but how much do you people really expect to pay??? I am so tired of people being mad or upset at Boon because of the whole free on disk comment. I can guarantee it wasn't all his decision to charge for things. In fact why wouldnt they charge for content whether it's on disk or not? If it isn't unlockable then we must need a download code to use it. I would t see why anyone would think this stuff should be free. The o ly things free that come off of xbla are videos and demos and stuff like that. I can't remember any time I did t pay for something that was useable in game. Maps, skins, characters, fatalities are all gonna cost something. That's how business works and I don't blame nrs/wb one bit for charging for it. It's called downloadable content. You don't have to have it to play the game. None of this is a surprise to me because I am use to paying for all this stuff be it for Halo, Gears, ect...

I didn't have to pay for Cold Storage on Halo 3 or the Co-op Mission Pack on Red Dead Redemption. :P

That's because after a period of time they became free. No halo map pack was free on the day of it's release. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure alk the packs cost something at some point
May 31st, 2011 7:09 PM CST - El Madre
Nah. I distinctly remember not paying for the first map pack for Halo 3.

Don't like what Bungie is doing now with their DLC. Make it MANDATORY to buy their packs in order to play any of their playlists in Reach except for Team Classic, it's bull TBH.

Klassic Skins make this game so much more enjoyable for me. It's just skins, but it matters.
June 5th, 2011 10:47 AM CST - Gameguy82
Lets all go and burn down nrs aaaaggggghhhhh.Get over it my god you gamers today need 2 grow up oh my god its on the disc well lets say we hate the studios and everything else.Yes boon did say we wont pay for anything on disc so just cause something is on the tower mode right away its on the disc and they are money grabbing.Interesting how bout that was on there cause they wanted people to have that old nostalgia feel again like in the arcade days.This is before the internet people.Pay the $5 get over it and if ya don't want to give nrs your money DON'T problem solved.
June 5th, 2011 2:56 PM CST - mkray41
I'm definitely looking forward to the klassic skins; they look pretty awesome. I'm interested in seeing how the damaged models look.

When precisely will this be released? I know it's on the 7th, but what time? At midnight? I cannot wait...
June 6th, 2011 9:04 PM CST - JSwartz0181
XBL content usually comes up like 5am-ish Eastern/Central. How PSN works in that department, I have no idea. Whenever the servers get updated to include them. I'd not expecting them at the stroke of midnight though. Just wait until morning and get them then.

Yeah, but you kind of get tired of only being able to play on disc maps simply because that one person doesn't have dlc. I'm glad that I can finally play breakpoint and highlands in their respective playlists

Does anyone here pay Left 4 Dead? They wanted to do free DLC for 360, but MS wouldn't let them. Boon stated that DLC prices were still being negotiated, meaning it was in WB's hands not his. So again, please stop blaming Boon. You have every right tobeing upset and your opinion, but I strongly believe it had nothing to do with NRS...at all.
QFT, Team fortress 2 could not get free dlc either, microsoft doesnt do free dlc

NRS is located in the United States. Everything should be out by 3:30 am west coast time, if they haven't specified anything. Pretty much the same time as the last episode of MK: Legacy is going to be released in the US.

I never been playing one for Arcade style fighting games, but WAS excited for this. Any one how can I get 400 Microsoft Points? Please provide me insight on this.

The Klassic skins are so awesome but it's pretty weak that they released them, anyways, after people went scrambling for particular copies of MK just to get the skin they wanted, especially the people who had to actually pay money for MK Annihilation just to get the Jade code, on top of all the loser scammers we had pass through TRMK during the Kode Trade days.
