No Cross-Region Netplay For Mortal Kombat X on PSN

While the hype building up for MKX has been strong, the past two days have revealed a bit of bad news. First the delay to "Summer 2015" for the PS3/360 ports, and now the announcement of "region-locked" online multiplayer (on PSN), as confirmed today by MKX producer Shaun Himmeric. What this means is: Players from North America can't play with those from Europe (or other regions) and vice versa. Due to this, some fans are speculating on the quality of MKX's netcode.  (Source: SRK)

MKX Delayed Until "Summer 2015" on PS3/360

When it comes to multi-platform fighting game releases, it seems like last-gen ports are getting the shaft more and more. Warner Bros. confirmed today that MKX will be delayed on PS3 & Xbox 360 until Summer 2015. The good news is, MKX will still be released for PS4, Xbox One and PC on the original release date, April 14th. Ed Boon did state early on in the game's development that they are "focused solely on the PS4/XB1 ports" (so you can't say he didn't warn you).
