Mortal Kombat X Allows You To Buy Easy Fatalities With Real Money


This is silly, but bare with me while I get to the reasons why.

Warner Brothers and NetherRealm Studios have a rather odd micro-transaction currency in Mortal Kombat X. As the game launched today, several outlets like Polygon noticed that the game had Easy Fatalities purchasable in the PlayStation store. You can pick up five for $0.99 and 30 for $4.99.

So, what do they do? They allow you to reduce the relatively complex inputs that make up Fatalities into just a two button combo.

Actually, I don't have to explain to you why this is silly, I'm sure most of you got it. First of all, the Fatalities I've tried are fairly simple to input and I'm awful at fighting games. Making them 'easy' for money is ridiculous. Secondly, profiting off making something easier that acts as a 'reward' to more skilled players is a quick fire way to tick off those skilled players. Especially with $60 barrier for entry already.

I'm not going to run around and pretend the sky is falling, because as I've said twice already, this is just silly. This could be dangerous precedent to set for the whole industry, mind.

If you really want to pick these up, that is your choice! I wouldn't want to dissuade you. Just…yeah.
