The biggest surprise in the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot wasn’t some hidden character from the franchise, it was Kratos! Game director Stig Asmussen stopped at the US PS Blog to share his thoughts on the Ed Boon and Netherrealms latest effort, talking of how proud he was that Kratos is well represented, and while there, he answered some questions in the comments sections.

It’s the best Hack-n-Slash title ever made. There are countless “counterfeits” sprouting from all corners of the industry, copy and pasting many elements of Santa Monica’s game, and like a carbon copy, duplicating said elements in theirs. Those games have gone on to sell millions, not more than God of War III, but close enough.
Here’s my question? Is selling 3 million copies of one of this generation’s most celebrated titles enough to be called a success? I’ll never understand why other games sell tens of millions while those that have defined the industry struggle to keep up.
Clifford and Jack are blood brothers. Cliff loves his PS3, and the games that are on it, while Jack is an avid Xbox 360 gamer. They’re not fanboys at all, as both usually compliment the consoles and the great experiences that they provide.

Here’s the exchange between Jack and his brother Clifford. Enjoy.

However if the former directors of the first two games, David Jaffe and Cory Barlong had their way, we would have witnessed an entirely different finish.
Here’s how God of War III would conclude if Davide Jaffe or Cory Barlog were directing it.
