Midway's Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance reaches Greatest Hits, Platinum Hits and Player's Choice Status for all three consoles. Congratulations to Midway for making this cool game. You can read the full article below.

The PlayStation 2 Computer Entertainment System, the Xbox Video Game System from Microsoft and Nintendo GameCube, Award Top-Selling Fighting Game Franchise Participation in Respective Programs

Midway Games Inc. (NYSE:MWY), a leading entertainment software publisher and developer, announced today that Mortal Kombat®: Deadly Alliance® has shipped as a Greatest Hits title for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and a Platinum Hits title for the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft. A Player's Choice title for the Nintendo GameCube™ will be available on October 27.

As new additions to these prestigious programs, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance will be re-launched with new packaging at a suggested retail price of $19.99.

The PlayStation 2 version of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance easily reached Greatest Hits status by selling through nearly one million units in North America. A Greatest Hit must sell more than 400,000 units during its first nine months on store shelves. The Xbox version of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance was named a Platinum Hit by selling through nearly 450,000 units. Platinum status is given to products that manufacture more than 400,000 units after nine months. The Nintendo GameCube version of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance sold 250,000 units, which qualified it for the Player's Choice standard. In total, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance has sold through more than two million units worldwide since its release in November 2002.

The leading gaming media have also recognized Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance as a top choice. GamePro Magazine's 13th Annual Readers Choice Award for the best fighting game went to Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, while GameSpot declared the game "Best fighting game of 2002" for Xbox and Nintendo GameCube, and IGN included it among its "Editor's Choice Awards" for PlayStation 2, Xbox and Nintendo GameCube. In March 2003, Gaming World X crowned Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance as the "Best Fighter" on Xbox.

I knew it! This game is great!
But is's bad that I don't have PS2 or other modern console!
I really hope to see a PC version!
Will MKDA be the best fighting game on the next E3?
Do you know Gambid?

MK: DA can't be part drom the next E3, because it is already a fact. Only games, that are in devoping can be shown on the show. Maybe we will see something from Mortal Kombat 6.

Certainly they will release information. I remember the first information about MK5 was released in the Spring. But I may be wrong!

Rumors and "information" about MK: DA you can read from 1997, right after MK4 was released.

Because the information about MK: DA in 1997 was all false.

That was a kind of a "rethorical" question :D
But I doubt that false information will be released in E3?
(Note: This is not a rethorical question :D )

I don't think you can lie at E3!

I didn't know they lied in 1997, why would they do it? Anyway, E3 should be good, can't wait t see what they have for MK!

I didn't say that someone is lying. I just say that with the time a lot of things are changing. MK5 was going to be on arcades, and then, what happeneds, Midway leave the arcades and create MK for the NextGen consoles. That's only an example.
