To quote: If you watch our recent video Q&A with Ed Boon and Stig Asmussen, then you know that NetherRealm Studios and Sony Santa Monica Studios collaborated closely to ensure that God of War's ultra-violent antihero was faithfully recreated for his highly anticipated (and PS3-exclusive) Mortal Kombat debut.
Now that the shrink wrap is off the game, my hands-on play sessions have yielded some powerful tactics. First, a few observations:

Nintendo has racked up tens of millions of DS users that could be relied upon to buy scores of games. While Sony can't push its PSP owners into buying as much software - not least because there isn't much available - they certainly don't mind picking up...
