The December 2005
update to the Xbox backwards compatibility list
for the Xbox 360
has been posted and Mortal Kombat: Deception
has been removed from the list.
In our Mortal Kombat: Deception on Xbox 360
feature from two weeks back, we exposed the numerous flaws in the Xbox 360
emulation of the original Xbox
version of Mortal Kombat: Deception
, rendering the fighting game portions virtually unplayable. We contacted Midway
with our findings shortly after we published our feature
and it appears that Microsoft
has responded in this latest update with removing the title from the list.
What does all of this mean? At the least it means that Microsoft
is aware of the problems and removal may well mean that they are working on fixing them.
