The April Trifecta – Socom 4, Portal 2 or Mortal Kombat?

Just weeks away from the biggest day in April thanks to the much anticipated releases of 3 of the biggest games in 2011. We are talking of course about; SOCOM 4, Portal 2 and on Mortal Kombat. With 3 of the biggest games releasing on the same day, it will definitely be interesting to see the demand for each one of them. Obviously the only exclusive of the three, SOCOM 4 is the under dog by far…or is it?

Coming to us for the second time around is Portal 2. The sequel to the critically acclaim game Portal is sure to make a huge movement in sales on the 19th, being available for almost every platform, which includes; PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and Mac OSX, we have to believe that the game will easily take an overall victory, first day and for the month, now that doesn’t count consoles alone, despite it’s fairly large ad campaign and amazing $20 Bonus Credit and reduced price via Amazon, Portal may have a toe to toe match for the #1 spot, when it comes to consoles alone. And why is that?

Well, say hello to Mortal Kombat!!

Mortal Kombat will only be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3, but that may be enough to give Portal 2 a tremendous fight for first day sales and overall success, at the end of its first month on the market. Mortal Kombat has been seriously created a huge amount of anticipation, thanks to the early demos, teaser trailers and character bio videos. All that is left is to perform a fatality on April’s competition.

Mortal Kombat Releases April 19th, the game is available for pre-order and currently offered a $10 Bonus Credit via AmazonMortal Kombat

The only exclusive title from all three SOCOM 4 is sure to get PS3 fans heavily excited and thankful for all these fine exclusives the PS3 has to offer. But, is this the SOCOM that the fans have been waiting for? Much love is shown to its early BETA, so the likely hood of SOCOM 4 being the real deal, is pretty damn high. Sony has even gone all out as to offer a SOCOM 4: Full Deployment Edition Bundle which comes with everything from a complete PS Move setup, Sharpshooter Rifle, and game for an incredibly aggressive price.

We sure have a great day ahead of us, SOCOM 4, Mortal Kombat, Portal 2 in one day?? Amazing! If you happen to make it in to work the following day, look around and notice who called in, I guarantee you they will playing one of these three titles.

What game out of the three are you most excited about? And which game do you think will take April in terms of sales?

    i was never one to buy 3 games or 2 in 1 day , but i might get portal and use the 20$ credit for socom4 since i preordered Mortal Kombat already, so ill buy socom4 few days later . seems like a good plan

    Wasn’t blown away by socom 4 beta. I’m not old guard socom and have only had confrontation, which I liked. Been playing killzone 3 for a while and prefer that. Not interested in the other two titles either, so my moneys staying in the tax pot. (ok David??)
