Originally, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Mortal Kombat X were supposed to launch alongside the PS4 and Xbox One iterations.

But the PS3 and 360 versions kept getting delayed and now, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has confirmed the cancellation of MKX for the older consoles.

In the announcement statement , WBIE said the teams just couldn't get the PS3 and 360 games to perform at an acceptable level of quality:

"After months of development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has come to the regrettable conclusion that we cannot release Mortal Kombat X for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Please know our teams worked diligently to meet the quality standards set by the current-gen versions of the game. We were not able to get the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions to the quality expected of a Mortal Kombat game and are very sorry for not being able to deliver the products as originally planned."

If you pre-ordered a copy of the game on PS3 or Xbox 360, you will receive a refund. Mortal Kombat X for PS4 and Xbox One launched in April to very positive reviews; check it out if you haven't already. And upgrade your console, damnit!
