MK Balance Patches On Xbox Do Not Work Offline

On Xbox only, Mortal Kombat's balance updates do not save to the hard drive. What this means is that your Xbox console must be connected online in order to play with the latest version of the game. If it is not connected online, you are playing the retail disc version. Unless this gets fixed, PS3 will without a doubt the the tournament standard for Mortal Kombat in the future.

On a side note, I heard the 21k PDP tournament in Las Vegas is being held on Xbox. They better have plans to connect all those Xboxs to the internet.

No one knows yet what they plan to do with the PDP tourney. And, of course, you're required to play on the MK anniversary stick. Have fun hitting u/f and u/b!

It has been confirmed that PS3 does not have this problem. It is Xbox only.

i think they'll have this fixed before evo forsure so no need to worry. if not then this game deserves what that strat guide got.

From tournies iv'e been watching lately, x-box 360 seems to be the main choice for competetive play. But The PS3 version is far mor superior in my eyes. kratos is banned anyway. Aris what do you think? What system do you prefer to play this game on? Do you use pad or stick?

Did those controller issues with the Xbox360 Slim ever got fixed? Those were a pretty big annoyance in tournaments.

Wouldn't this be a good reason for Kratos to be allowed in tourney play?

I think ps3 should be the standard because there are so many pad players and not to mention this patch issue. For now I'm playing pad but I'll probably eventually make the switch.

Fuck Kratos serious, give up about him ever being allowed in tournaments. MK is a good game, NRS just need to pull their heads out their asses and patch the necessary things. Online, Practise mode record, the button config and this shit....

I really hope fighting games are supported better in future post release, other than the shit capcom is pulling.

I wonder if the play testers noted any of the shitty ui to the dev team during beta. The testers were supposed to be from the community right? They must have been too impressed with the fatality trainer to notice.
