In a press release Sony Online Entertainment announced that Mortak Kombat II and other five classic Midway games will be released as downloadable titles for PlayStation 3. From the press release:

SONY ONLINE ENTERTAINMENT AND MIDWAY TEAM UP FOR SIX PLAYSTATION®3 SYSTEM DOWNLOADABLE TITLES
Sony Online Entertainment to Bring Classic Games from Midway to the PLAYSTATION®Network Early This Year

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – January 8, 2007 – Sony Online Entertainment, (SOE) a global leader in the online gaming industry, announced that it has licensed the rights from Midway Home Entertainment Inc., a leading interactive entertainment industry publisher and developer, to develop and release six classic Midway games for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. The games will be available for digital download through the PLAYSTATION® Network; with the first game being available in early 2007.

The six downloadable titles are: Mortal Kombat® II, Gauntlet®II, Joust®, Rampage World Tour®, Rampart® and Championship Sprint®. Each title was specifically chosen because of its multiplayer capability, allowing players to experience each of these classics with their friends in the comfort of their own living room, or anywhere else through an internet connection. All of the titles will be offered for PLAYSTATION 3 system download exclusively through the PLAYSTATION Network.

“We knew these titles would be a perfect fit for the PLAYSTATION Network, and based on Sony Online Entertainment’s legacy in the online space as well as their intimate knowledge of the PLAYSTATION Network, it was an obvious decision they would be a top company to work with to bring this project to fruition,” said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway.
In addition to its work on the development of the PLAYSTATION Network, SOE released a PLAYSTATION 3 launch title, Untold Legends™ Dark Kingdom™, in November of 2006.

“This is a great opportunity for SOE and Midway to come together to bring these arcade treasures to the next-generation of gaming on the PLAYSTATION 3,” said John Needham, Sr. Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Sony Online Entertainment. “SOE will continue to explore additional opportunities to bring fun and unique digital content to the PLAYSTATION Network.”
