'God of War' Prepares for some 'Mortal Kombat'

Before the first great Console War of 2005, I enjoyed many an hour of brutal, blood-soaked gaming courtesy of a certain undying son of Sparta (psst, his name is Kratos). I won't even make mention of another PS-exclusive franchise (*cough*MetalGearSolid*cough*) that I miss. Anyway, once I made the jump from Sony's Playstation 2 to Microsoft's much more attractive XBOX 360 I had to bid a bitter farewell to the God of War franchise in exchange for a more diverse catalog of games (hey, XBOX did have DOOM at the time).

Ever since then my gaming has been regrettably Kratos-less and unfortunately that doesn't seem likely to change anytime soon. Revealed at Spike TV's VGA (Video Game Awards) show this past weekend, those crazy awesome bastards at Netherrealm Studios (formerly Midway Chicago) are pulling a Soul Caliber move with the reveal of Kratos as a PS3 playable exclusive (see footage above). All I'm left to wonder is where is the XBOX love people?

    Although I haven't been as passionate about the last handful of Mortal Kombat games I was obsessed with MK1-3. The story and mythos of MK is so cool!
