Uncensored Fatalities in Mortal Kombat vs DC

31 Signatures Goal: 100

In the game Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, two fatalities were censored because of ESRB. Those fatalities were gunshot fatalities with the characters The Joker and Deathstroke. A video on The Joker's fatality was released a couple months before the game was released, so you too can see what it looked like before. With the character Deathstroke, he has a gunshot move, in which the bullet clearly shoots the opponent in the head. When defeating an opponent, the words "Finish Him!"/"Finisher Her" are shown and said, which is when you can do a fatality. Instead of doing Deathstroke's gunshot fatality, you can do his gunshot move. You can see that it looks exactly like the video of The Joker's fatality that was released back a couple months before the game's released, yet it is now censored. This petition is for ESRB to allow Midway to release an update via online (for those on Xbox Live and Playstation Network) that has the fatalities uncensored. There are many other violent video games out there that are still rated T, such as Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Call of Duty 2, and Area 51 Blacksite for examples. In those three games, you can shoot people in the head, and happens a lot more often than a fatality will in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe. On the ESRB website (www.esrb.org), this is what it says for a T rating: "Titles rated T (Teen) have content that may be suitable for ages 13 and older. Titles in this category may contain violence, suggestive themes, crude humor, minimal blood, simulated gambling, and/or infrequent use of strong language. " This is what it says for M: "Titles rated M (Mature) have content that may be suitable for persons ages 17 and older. Titles in this category may contain intense violence, blood and gore, sexual content and/or strong language." Now, going back on the video of the Joker's fatality (which is the one that is now censored along with Deathstroke's fatality) that was released on the internet a couple months before the game, you can see that the blood in minimal, and it has the same amount of blood as Deathstroke's gunshot move. There is no gore whatsoever in the fatality, just minimal blood, and does not have as much intense violence as those games I listed above that got the T rating. I am pretty sure that the rest of the Mortal Kombat fan community would even consider it intense as well as I do. So please take that into consideration, and sign if you concur with everything discussed above.
