Early last week, I wrote up a blog post arguing why we would not be seeing Mortal Kombat released for PC. Essentially, it boiled down to high piracy rates combined with low legal demand meaning that the projected proceeds would not be enough to cover the cost of porting. In response, several people argued that that there was demand for Mortal Kombat for PC, and that there would be enough sales that the “low” cost of porting the game would be covered. One item brought up by more than one person was that the soon-to-be-released PC version of Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection would prove that there was a high demand for Mortal Kombat on PC.
Well, yesterday, I was informed by a knowledgeable friend that Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection has been leaked to download sites by pirates, and MK fans have already been spreading the word about it.
Thanks, assholes. Way to prove me right.
