i know but why ? why tone them down

No you misunderstand.

I'll just quote the original article to make it easier then explaining it myself.

Third, well, just about everything else will look a little better, too. “The original source art files had super-crazy-detailed textures,” NetherRealm senior producer Adam Urbano told GamesBeat. “We had to down-rez them to play on last-gen consoles, but for the PlayStation 4, we are able to get much closer to the source material for the actual in-game content. So the textures on the characters are probably about 4X what they were on the PS3.”

oh yea for the ps3 is horribly laggy for fg's ...

So are they already admitting the ps4 would lag as well.?... If so thats asscheeks :(
they toned it down on x360/ps3 so the ps4 version will have better graphics mostly likely the graphics they wanted for the current gen consoles but couldnt get because the consoles have not enough power (ps3 slowdown)

Maybe what the media has been saying is BS. Who's to say no more DLC? New Skin and just look what Capcom does...wouldn't be surprised if there's more to come if they want to reinvigorate the fanbase.
Considering NRS has a track record of doing this with their previous title, I do not think it is the media "BS" as it were.

Capcom's policies and approaches are quite different from NRS policies as far as I can tell on downloadable content. MK9 Vita got quite a few costumes plus some other tweaks the the console versions should have gotten, but didn't.


I hope I'm wrong and actual support follows after this version including balance patches, but I'm not holding my breath.


I'm so salty I could punch a baby seal in the face with a mace...

Hawkgirl approved post :O.

im actually really exited for this even though its just a skin, ive wanted a ba skin for a long time and it means that other characters that are missing skins can still possibly get them

Kinda doubt it, this just seems like they wanted to have an extra exclusive bullet point for the ps4 version.

Not enough people still playing to warrant wasting precious manpower when they could be working on their next game.

Something is better than nothing but unless you're a super fanatic of Black Adam this isn't a reason to justify the purchase.

if you were already planning on buying a ps4 and injustice on it, then yes it is
Yeah that makes sense, I'm curious to see what the numbers will be from now to the end of the year regarding Injustice (PS4) sales.

I'm also curious regarding if and when TO's would transition to PS4.

It means shit quality youtubes and worse quality twitch streams can't convey the only real "next-gen" thing about KI; It's fucking gorgeous.

Okay but so are a ton of other games. Considering it has no standard or additional features and is a handful of characters then where does the "true next gen" come into play beyond "it looks good"? It doesn't push the envelope in anyway that cannot be accomplished on current gen beyond its 720p/60FPS and other fighters practically do this now (I believe Injustice runs at 720p native and 60FPS but I could be mistaken about the 720p).

I'm not arguing with you, because I haven't seen or played it. I'm just presenting the one thing KI does that is considered next gen, and that is it's a pretty well accepted truth that (in person) KI is one of the most aesthetically impressive fighters ever made, none of which is conveyable via most forms of internet broadcast.

That said, from a gameplay standpoint, you could theory fight any fighting game into or out of a "true next gen" statement because gameplay is a timeless principle.

Think about it. What gameplay qualification could KI possibly satisfy that you would consider next-gen? Has a fighting game ever been next gen?

Also, more to the point, how fucking lollerskates is it people are upset that for the low low price of $460 , people who are six months behind the times get to have one extra skin. You guys are the worst fans ever.
