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.

Avalongod@Papa, agreed. I think people are reluctant to get involved if they're not the target. But I think we need to take responsibility as a community to confront harassing behavior, whether on gender or race.08/29/2014 - 7:23am
E. Zachary KnightSo Nintendo has given gamers what they want and have fractured the 3DS user base at the same time. http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/224476/Nintendo_reveals_the_New_Nintendo_3DS.php08/29/2014 - 7:12am
Papa MidnightI could say the same about race. I certainly enjoyed being on the receiving end of this while playing StarCraft II this past week: http://i.imgur.com/mIZA1QB.png (and this is actually mild compared to what I usually see). Report players? What a joke...08/29/2014 - 12:29am
AvalongodWhether you approve of Sarkeesian's view or not, no woman deserves to be the target of that kind of harassment and it won't stop until men tell each other it's not appropriate under any circumstance.08/28/2014 - 8:44pm
AvalongodI'm guessing the twitter account was a troll, but come on, I'm sorry, it's just disgusting someone is saying those things to Sarkeesian whether serious or a joke.08/28/2014 - 8:43pm
ZippyDSMleesocial movement that is bringing most of these issue to the spot light to be nothing but trend mongering white knighting bullies who are not much better than the hateful moronic bullies on the other side.08/28/2014 - 5:20pm
ZippyDSMleereflects the world we live in while the rest is the worst stuff that should be focused on. Leaving whats reflected in the same boat as everything else that's exaggerated and skewed by media/fiction and happliy consumed by current society. I find the socia08/28/2014 - 5:20pm
ZippyDSMleemales live off the power fantasy but once you realize as a male you will never reach what fiction or media calls perfect it demoralizes you just the same. And I would not call female negative stereotypes rampant and out of control not when 70-80% of it re08/28/2014 - 5:19pm
ZippyDSMleeNot saying that there is not a difference in the treatment of males and females in media, but males are begin painted as near perfect superhumans with cliched flaws it dose as much damage to the psyche as how females are treated. Sure you could claim that08/28/2014 - 5:19pm
ZippyDSMleeNeeneko:As I said if you do not 100% belive it then you are a Neanderthal. Theres more gray to everything than black and white.08/28/2014 - 1:27pm
NeenekoMeh, the "PCism" is just trotted out when people do not know their place and dare to complain about things the speakers think are fine. How dare people complain about how they are treated/portrayed, it is not like it bother us, our feelings matter!08/28/2014 - 1:13pm
ZippyDSMleeNeeneko I do not think its against feminism but rather against PCisim’s and that most things are offensive since if you do not believe that you are a Neanderthal that beats women,ect..08/28/2014 - 12:48pm
