PlayStation 3 is the 7th generation console from Sony. It was released on November 17th, 2006 in North America and March 23rd, 2007 in Europe. PS3 came about a year later than its biggest rival – Xbox 360 from Microsoft – so it didn’t manage to conquer the market as PlayStation 2 had done a couple of years earlier. Also, complicated architecture of the console – based on the Cell CPU which became a pain in the neck for game developers – made it harder to achieve great sales results. PlayStation 3 was succeeded by PlayStation 4 in 2013.

Fighting canceled

A sequel to the 2011 game created by NetherRealm, which restored the leading position in gaming to Mortal Kombat, a long-standing, cult fighting game franchise launched in 1993 by the Midway / Acclaim duet. Once again, we get a wide array of playable fighters – both known from the previous games in the series, as well as brand new ones. Moreover, each one comes in several varieties, differing in tactics and combat style. Duels are fought on 2.5D arenas filled with interactive elements that you can use in combat. There is of course no shortage of spectacular finishers, so-called fatalities. The game’s core features an expansive story mode set 25 years after the events presented in the previous game. The authors implemented numerous both local and online multiplayer modes, enabling the players to compete with one another in a global struggle for primacy.

Fighting 19 April 2011

A brutal fighting game and a reboot of the Mortal Kombat video game series - one of the most popular fighting-oriented franchises, launched back in 1992. The game was created by NetherRealm and the works were supervised by Ed Boon - the father of the series. This new installment is based on the best mechanics of its predecessors, both improving and modernizing the classic Mortal Kombat experience. Thus brutal fighting is the core of the game - fights are filled with spectacular special attacks and creative ways of finishing off the enemy. The players received a massive number of both well-known and completely new fighters. The new X-Ray system was introduced as well, allowing the player to launch special attack sequences. New game modes were also added, including challenges, Story Mode and Tag Team, which allows two teams of two players to fight against each other. Combining classic elements with the new can be also observed in the visuals that combine 2D and 3D elements.
