Sounds Great, But since I'm not one of the biggest fan of MK anymore, I'll probably get the regular version. I owned the premium pack of Deception and I watched the extras maybe once or two and they weren't that worthed. Not saying that these aren't but not for me.

Likewise, but I think I'll shell out the extra $10 to get an emulated UMK3.. hopefully it's done in-house so it won't have the same issues as MKII and 3 on MAT2. I wonder why they're skipping on Xbox this time. Surely UMK3 isn't the only reason; I guess sales of the LE last time weren't so hot.

I'm 99.9% sure that Digital Eclipse is doing the UMK3 emulation, the same company who has done all of the Midway arcade emulations.

Awsome, I am hoping to actually get this CE of the last MK game to grace this generation of consoles.

Ugh, so we can only hope this isn't another pseudo arcade-perfect version. It's really disheartening on the whole though, especially when you look at other emulations out there. Tekken 1-3 arcade versions were emulated perfectly on the PS2 (the music was streaming from the disc though), and they were technically, much more advanced. Add the recent SF Alpha compilation.

Once again you hit the nail on the head, dude. I'd rather play MK2 and 3 on my MAT no#2. Even UMK3 released with MKA in the collectors pack will be more fun than MKA

UMK3!! I was hoping that they would include that instead of MK3. I was worried that it would be MK3 since they basically had it ready to go since it was used in the Midway Arcade package awhile back. That seals the deal for me then, over priced premium pack here I come!

Maybe the no xbox version has something to do with the fact that they are releasing UMK3 on xbox live arcade before the years end, I dont know what reason that would be though.
