Midway Sale to Warner Bros. Gains Court Approval

July 2, 2009 -

A U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge has approved the sale of Midway to Warner Bros. for $33 million, reports the Chicago Tribune.

No other bids were submitted.

The decision apparently ends Mortal Kombat film producer Larry Kasanoff's bid to lay claim to much of the MK series' IP. In a story broken by GamePolitics last week, Kasanoff claimed that "the Mortal Kombat series, as it stands today, is far more a creation of... Kasanoff than of Midway."

Bugs Bunny vs. Scorpion FIGHT!

Re: Midway Sale to Warner Bros. Gains Court Approval

Now the question begs, would it be more epic to see Scorpion get an anvil on his head, or see Bugs get his limbs torn of.

That sir, is a question for the ages.

I honestly can't think of an answer.

I hoped that people liked MK vs. DC Universe, cuz we'll most likely get a sequel now.

Re: Midway Sale to Warner Bros. Gains Court Approval

I didn't buy it for 2 reasons:

1) I do not own neither a 360 or a PS3. No PC version was produced so no reason to buy.

2) If I did own a 360 or a PS3, or a PC version was produced, I still wouldn't buy it knowing I'd be purchasing a censored product. I mean, I might as well import it from Australia, aka: Censor Capital.

It was only censored because of DC not wanting excessive gore associated with their brands.  I can respect that.

Mortal Kombat vs Looney Toons?

Re: Midway Sale to Warner Bros. Gains Court Approval

I like it, probaly the best 3D MK game in a while, but it lack content to hold me in the game. Hopefully a sequal will fix it.

Re: Midway Sale to Warner Bros. Gains Court Approval

It actually did remind me of classic MK, not to mention the Joker was in the game(Though I wish Space Ghost was in the game).

 

Maybe they'll do MK vs Looney Tunes(Bugs Bunny vs Liu Kang, Lola Bunny vs Sonya Blade, Daffy Duck vs Sub-Zero, Wile E. Coyote vs Jax, Sylvester vs Scorpion, and (For you Tiny Toons fans) Babs Bunny vs Kitana)

 

What is a game?(throws wine glass on the floor and it breaks to pieces) A miserable little pile of secrets.

Glad to see Midway saved by Warner Brothers. Hopfully they can increase the quality of Mortal Kombat now.

MaskedPixelanteDude was at the center of a pretty serious plagiarism scandal back in 2011, and it was widely known he ripped off other musical pieces well before that.12/27/2014 - 9:33am
Kajex@Masked Right, because his work actually composing music for several Metroid games necessitated plagiarism.12/27/2014 - 9:04am
MaskedPixelanteI can't believe Kenji Yamamoto got another job. Then again, his job on Smash was "musical arrangment", so copying other people's work is right up his alley.12/26/2014 - 9:31pm
