Rumour: GOTY edition for Batman: Arkham Origins incoming?

Amazon Germany is listing a GOTY edition for Batman: Arkham Origins for both the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 sistems. Is there any truth to this information?

The game is good but not polished enough to get any GOTY awards. Especially in a year when we had not one but 3 GOTY quality games, GTA V, The Last of Us & BioShock Infinite

That is correct, unfortunately the game lacked in the polishment department, but I guess this edition is more to keep up the tradition of GOTY editions in the Arkham series.

I never picked up Arkham Origins because of all the DLC they release for those games, but I'm a big fan of the Arkham games, so I was always waiting for this.

Will most likely pick up this 'GOTY' if it includes all content.

I wouldn't read it literally (though in this case it's pretty misleading considering the game only averaged a 75 on Metacritic) and read it more like a placeholder or more of a conceptual name. I say placeholder, since a lot of people consider a rerelease with all / most of the DLC as a "GOTY" edition, even if they're not explicitly called that. It could also be a conceptual name for the reason listed before, since a lot of things are simply called X because they're typically viewed as Y. A great example would be an online pass, which was / is literally DLC that gives you a pass to play online, though a number of games / people consider DLC included for free with a new copy an "online pass" regardless of it involving online or not.

GOTY Batman would make more sense.

Please no.... this game single handedly almost ruined the franchise for me, so please thanks but no thanks

Worst game I ever bought, the first two were amazing.

So apparently just putting all the DLC on a single disc is justification to call a game Game of the Year now?

ColeMacGrath774d ago (Edited 774d ago )

I think companies do this regularly if the game sells well enough, Uncharted 3 for example didn't win GOTY 2011, nor did Arkham Asylum and Arkham City win the VGX GOTY awards but they all got their own GOTY editions with additional content.

As ColeMacGrath said many games receive GOTY editions without winning GOTY, and somes games that received GOTY do not receive GOTY editions (read: Bioshock Infinite for example)

Fianlly. Been waiting for a GOTY Edition. Can finally play it before Arkham Knight comes out.
