and earned NRS more sales, as I would have bought it since I don't have a PS4.

the PS3 port would have been graphically equivalent to the Nintendo Switch version.

The Switch might be underpowered, but at least it's not a dead system like PS3. Why would anyone waste the effort and money to make a PS3 port (for the shitty Cell processor)?

Nobody would buy it on PS3. We are almost done with the current gen so why make a game for last gen?

At this point in Xbox One and Ps4's lifecycle it seems nonsensical to make backports to 360 or Ps3.

Switch is being supported because it's a current gen system. Even porting from Switch to Ps3 would take tons of resources and money.

Yup, the 8th gen was a incremental jump in hardware.

Technically of speaking, NRS were supposed to release Mortal Kombat X for both PS3/Xbox 360 but ran into some issues along the way. The hardware couldn't handle it and both consoles were nearly a decade old, so NRS did the right thing by cancelling those ports. So no, MK11 couldn't be made for PS3 due to hardware limitations and if you look at Injustice: Gods Among Us PS3/4, it is very noticeable between the two and that was showing PS3 has aged badly. PS4 had the right hardware for the right game to be made. If you want to get MK11, get it on PS4 but I personally own the the game on PC and I love MK11 just because I'm a MK fan.

Nintendo Switch is a different story with a different hardware.

On the PC, if a game being designed can can run on weaker hardware it will, it's not a big deal. But rewriting the games to run on PS3s CELL and Xbox 360 CPU is just bad business right now. It would take time and cost a lot of money in development.

Isn't MK 11 on a lot of systems. What do you have, just 7th gen systems? Fair enough, I still play my Xbox 360 a lot.

Not a chance, at least not a version that's even remotely close to what MK11 is on the ps4/X1. They couldn't get MKX to run on the ps3/360, so no way would they be able to get the sequel to run on the older hardware. Plus why the hell would they?!?

The game was pretty badly optimised on PC from my recollection. It took them almost two months to fix single player cutscenes going out of sync.

I think it's less incompetence and more "we don't give a shit about that platform, but lets sell it anyways"
