    "Wouldn't you know, Midway's MK and DC blend of kombat has turned out to be a hit, as they just announced that they have already shipped 1.8 million copies of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Applause for that. We also learn from MK creative director Ed Boon that his team is already hard at work on the next MK edition. One that could possibly break the 2 million units shipped milestone and possibly bring back that 2D fighting artsy feel, sort of like a certain Street Fighter? Hmm, maybe?"

    So Midway is staying in business afterall? Last I heard they had so long to come up with so much money or else they would have to file for bankruptcy and it wasn't looking good.

    Personally I haven't played Mortal Kombat vs. DC but seeing hoe many games the Mortal Kombat 5 engine had it was pretty obvious.
    I don't like these games so much, they aren't as balanced as say, Tekken but somehow they have all these combos that you can do.

    For Midway's sake I hope they have their game ready soon and it sells as good as this one.

    But I say we keep this one alive since it actually has post.

    Didn't midway say they were done with Mortal Kombat awhile ago? Im so tired of MK. Its just violent to be violent and no one really cares anymore. It only sold well because it had the DC name and every wanted some batman after the dark knight.

    In gameplay, Deception was one of the best MK fighters. They could have a hit by expanding it right. Armageddon didn't really work too well.

    I personally don't like the 3D Mortal Kombat games. The only 3D one I liked was Mortal Kombat 4...
