Ed has been fairly vocal on Twitter to not expect more DLC for MK9. A typical GOTY release is to sell it to customers who didn't buy it initially but may now that they heard it won a "GOTY" award and also to know it's a lower price now and with all the included DLC. Not all developers are not in the business of fleecing fans by forcing them to buy a whole new game for a few new characters. I personally expect the next console MK game with new stuff to be MK10.
this better have more characters

Do you think it's possible for them to bundle all the DLC characters onto the GOTY edition, Pat? I've seen a lot of games do this and IMO it makes sense

PS Vitality will be release on 2012 Feb, are you sure we are not talking about the same game ?

I wonder if the compatibility packs are going to be included?? I'm sure this is one of the surprises, but maybe not. Boon said the first surprise wouldn't be related to MK9. So, I still have hope for a new action/adventure game
GOTY? MK9 was good... But not that good.

Porting studios like to port GOTY editions of games. Especially since they can port the game with all the DLC in one go and being GOTY is like an assurance it'll sell well it seems. Being GOTY makes the game ripe for porting. So I could see a company like Aspyr swooping in and porting MK to the platforms they port games to that is PCMac. Steam has a feature that allows you to purchase the game once and download to either platform. Aspyr is known for porting console only franchises over to PCMac such as Star Wars The Force Unleashed and Guitar Hero (and made that compatible with those plastic guitars). This may just be wishful thinking but they could be announcing this by the end of the year for release early next year.

Well, at least now we know one of the 3 surprises (I hope Vitality is not one).

On the other hand I'm not saying it's a sure thing but yeah, they do tend to like to port GOTY or "complete" editions. So having GOTY edition makes the game at least slightly more attractive to them.

-More stages(The tomb specially) -More costumes(especially mk3 sonya,and human ninja reptile) -Endurance mode -Slots for DLC characters in necropolis I have the special edition with the figurine of scorpion and sub-zero.I hope there is an option to download via psn,live the extra content and not be forced to buy this in full price in retail copy Anyway its great news i am hoping that this will give us some small things we wanted(and were missing)in this great game

Well actually it's not confirmed if it's a GOTY edition (with all DLC included) or a Komplete edition (ala SFIV with additional contents) since we have both definitions. It could be anything.
