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!

Debates are like merry go rounds. Two people take their positions then they go through the same points over and over and over again. Then when it's over they have the same positions they started in.

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.

Matthew Wilsonbasically "we do not want to put these games on a system more then 10 people own" just joking07/27/2014 - 8:13pm
MaskedPixelanteSomething, something, the 3DS can't properly emulate GBA games and it was a massive struggle to get the ambassador games running properly.07/27/2014 - 8:06pm
Andrew EisenIdeally, you'd be able to play such games on either platform but until that time, I think Nintendo's using the exclusivity in an attempt to further drive Wii U sales.07/27/2014 - 7:21pm
Matthew WilsonI am kind of surprised games like battle network are not out on the 3ds.07/27/2014 - 7:01pm
Andrew EisenWell, Mega Man 1 - 4, X and X2 are already on there and the first Battle Network is due out July 31st.07/27/2014 - 6:16pm
MaskedPixelanteDid Capcom ever give us a timeline for when they planned on putting the Megaman stuff on Wii U?07/27/2014 - 2:23pm
MaskedPixelanteIf by "distance themselves from Google Plus" you mean "forcing Google Plus integration in everything", then yes, they are distancing themselves from Google Plus.07/26/2014 - 12:20pm
MechaTama31I wish they would distance G+ from the Play Store, so I could leave reviews and comments again.07/26/2014 - 11:03am
Matthew Wilson@pm I doubt it. Google seems to be distancing themselves from G+07/25/2014 - 9:31pm
Papa MidnightGoogle+ Integration is coming to Twitch!07/25/2014 - 8:41pm
MaskedPixelanteThis whole Twitch thing just reeks of Google saying "You thought you could get away from us and our policies. That's adorable."07/25/2014 - 2:52pm
Sleaker@james_fudge - hopefully that's the case, but I wont hold my breath for it to happen.07/25/2014 - 1:08pm
SleakerUpdate on crytek situation is a bit ambiguous, but I'm glad they finally said something: http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2014-07-25-crytek-addresses-financial-situation07/25/2014 - 1:07pm
E. Zachary KnightMan Atlas, Why do you not want me to have any money? Why? http://www.atlus.com/tears2/07/25/2014 - 12:06pm
Matthew WilsonI agree with that07/25/2014 - 10:45am
james_fudgeI think Twitch will have more of an impact on how YouTube/Google Plus work than the other way around.07/25/2014 - 10:22am
IanCWelp, twitch is going to suck now. Thanks google.07/25/2014 - 6:30am
Sleaker@MP - Looked up hitbox, thanks.07/24/2014 - 9:40pm
Matthew WilsonI agree, but to me given other known alternatives google seems to the the best option.07/24/2014 - 6:30pm
Andrew EisenTo be clear, I have no problem with Google buying it, I'm just concerned it will make a slew of objectively, quantifiably bad changes to Twitch just as it's done with YouTube over the years.07/24/2014 - 6:28pm
