Bad news once again, Batman fans. After the recent cancellation of the Batmobile Edition of Arkham Knight, the Limited Edition has suffered a delay.
LOL I finally managed to pre order the statue edition by bloody luck yesterday...like literally I pre ordered it and it must of been the last one as it went out of stock again Then this shit happens to me....AGAIN What the f*** is going on, they must of known about these things for ages. The statue wasn't done by ProjectTriForce like the Batmobile so I don't understand how both editions are suffering from so called "quality problems".
Lol, just wait till you put the disk in and start hearing funny noises. Maybe some mystic force doesn't want you playing the game.
I highly doubt it has anything to do with the game disc....Chances are there are quality control issues with the statue....At least this time they're stopping it before it releases. Arkham Asylum had issues with the Batarangs in the CE and they still shipped them...Origins had issues with not having enough Joker statues and they made people wait. Better they be proactive than do nothing
I was referring to his bad luck in a sarcastic way ¬_¬
If it does that after all this I'll throw the bloody thing out the window...and then office space it.
Man that sucks because after the initial batch I doubt anyone will buy it at a later date, especially as the game got a review score of 7 or something, so no buy for me
Gamespot gave it a 7 to be different. Every other reviewer pretty much gave it a 9-10. Either Gamespot just wants attention, or the reviewer just legitimately didn't like it. One random guys opinion shouldn't control whether you play the game or not.
I see what you did there...
@ProfessorCrab well gamespot are always like this. attention seeker whores, they gave some ridiculous scores to some games. but again maybe you right and the reviewer really didnt fall in love with it, who know?
Since when is a 7 a bad game?
You're the reason this gaming community sucks. Not buying a game based on someone's opinion and score? Are you serious? Why not try it for yourself? Buy a used copy, don't like it, return it for your money back. Just because one person gave it a lower score than you expected is a pitiful reason to not buy a game... When you learn that lesson, let me know
An irrelevant site gave 7, bigger sites like IGN and GameInformer gave an awesome score. And are you really decide your purchase based on review scores?
I am sorry Foxtrot it is a little comical,but is quite poor. I guess buy 2 copies hahahah really show support
Sorry to hear that, man. I've been downloading my games for awhile. Maybe you should go that route. I was also going to pre order at least one of these ltd editions, but ended up going with digital.
But you can't look at the awesome cases on your shelf that way
@Super I was willing to make an exception for Batman, but look at what would've happened if I had made it.
i would lock yourself in a room for the weekend. bad luck normally comes in threes.
If you only ordered a few days ago what's the big deal the weathers nice go out and enjoy the weekend. I mean seriously, chill out, people are dying and your bat mobile was cancelled... Your not alone so was mine, and now your lucky enough to get what you wanted but it's delayed, not cancelled your still getting it. Some people couldn't get the Batmobile at all and order these months ago I can imagine they are pretty annoyed as its gonna be a week or 3 later but come on bubbles gone to ya head. We all like are games I certainly do but your the first to comment and it's normally FML! Or F this developer or F this supplier, S happens. ... Just read your second post, throw it out the window... Get a grip.
" people are dying " That's my problem how? "Just read your second post, throw it out the window" It's joke like xHeavYx funny, sarcastic comment towards me. I think you are the one who needs to chill. Practice what you preach.
If you were starving, living on the steets and had no legs, I would have pity. To know that isn't the case boohoo. I preordered both too and my limbs are still intact, I have a roof over my head and grubb in the icebox.
Maybe you got mine :-) I cancelled my limited edition preorder.
Calm down, it's just a toy ¬_¬
It's really not.
Yeah man I saw your post reacting to losing the batmobile statue(and all the subsequent details surrounding it), I'm really sorry that you had this happen TWICE. Obviously it sucks for people that bought this edition and had it delayed, but I think your personal situation is particularly cringe-inducing. Sorry that crap is happening to you, man. Me personally I'm going to get the GoTY edition, but I would be very unhappy if they cancelled my Pip-Boy a week from release. Sorry for long post, I just feel for you.
I didn't mind after because I managed to get a Statue edition on Amazon. Like the moment I got it I thought "Gee my luck has turned around" and I was fine. Even better was that it was pretty much the last one, I came back to the page after ordering and the Statue edition was gone again. So after I just thought I was in the clear Then this shit happens. As a big fan and a collectors edition guy all I want is to support a franchise by buying the best edition out there...it's like they don't want my money Even worse is that there's STILL no explanation on this and I mean a detailed one. Warner Bros are giving the New 52 skins to...and get this....EVERYONE and saying that those skins are our compensation when they are giving them out for people who weren't affected aswell. I mean what the f*** ¬¬
Sorry to hear it Fox, you and a lot of people bought the most expensive edition already and will receive the game later, that's really pathetic from the publisher, i wonder how many people will buy a collector's edition again from them in the future, after that fiasco.
The funny part is if this is ProjectTriforces fault, the people who made the Batmobile and gave us the crappy quality Dragon Age Inquisition collectors edition, then get this. They are doing the Halo 5 Statue in the collectors edition. You know the thing which costs £199. I hope Microsoft drop them after this. You do not want to risk it with these guys especially with Halo 5.
They've been doing this since AA when they did a last minute replacement on the collectors edition, switching out a replica batarang for a garbage plastic knockoff. I really don't get why people are still surprised.
so uhm... you guys are still assuming it's an issue with the batmobile? How about looking into what the two editions have in common, like the Comic book or something. I doubt the Batmobile toy is what canceled the game now that it's announced the LTD is delayed. Maybe to books or pamphlets that come with the game were shoddy, lost, or they didn't make enough. Unless it's been confirmed that the Batmobile is why that version was cancelled. If so, I must have missed that news.
It says this time it's something wrong with the packaging. It's unclear if that means something like the steelbook, or just the outer box. I had both pre ordered on X1, Now it looks like my additional 3rd copy of the game that I got on PS4 wasn't such a frivolous move
Why you need 3 copies? Save your money.
Long story. I wanted both statues, and then I also wanted it on PS4 for the exclusive missions etc. By which time the Special editions were OoS.
Literally why this is a money grabbing, fan exploiting company. So ridiculous to have so many versions, yet they know certain people will buy multiple copies out of impulse, taking advantage and exploitation of the fanbase
Guess these guys will be hiring for quality control soon. Better get working on my CV!
Just got the email as well.. The release of Batman: Arkham Knight has just been one huge clusterf**k. First the Batmobile edition is cancelled completely due to the incompetence of Project Triforce, and now the packaging of the other limited edition if f**ked!!! Well props to Amazon for sending us the code so we can still play it on release day while waiting for out limited editions.
Yeah, I'm incredibly impressed with Amazon's approach to the situation
Can you get the code and them just canel the limited edition pre-order?
If it's just a digital code, you'd likely be charged the cost of the base game and refunded the remaining portion.
or just sell the game new once you get all the crap out of the LTD edition that you want (unless codes are sealed inside the case). What an idiot move by Amazon. Used copies will be flooding the shelves... Not because the game is bad, but because people who bought their LTD editions through amazon will get no use out of the physical game.
Woah! They're sending out codes for a digital copy of the game for free! That's not a bad deal. I'll take the hit of a few days or a week. Hopefully it's not much longer than that.
This is a disaster. WTF happened?
Why are all the collectors editions and limited editions of this game canceled or delayed
JFC. I too had my Batmobile edition cancelled and I managed to get the statue edition, now delayed. Oh well, gives me time to finish up Project Cars I guess.
Sending out a digital code is the right move. Sucks, but it's not like they wanted this to happen.
Yeah it looks like the only one that's actually gonna ship is the serious edition that comes with the graphic novel.
Does that mean the same thing for US?
Thats weird, my limited edition already shipped Ordered from Walmart
The article mentions Amazon exclusive, so maybe there's something different about the amazon version that has the issue.
Interesting. Hopefully mine is defective so I can sell it on ebay
limited editions and special editions are 100% waste of money.
Lmao!!! WTF??? Limited Statue edition delayed? Here you go, free digital copy of the game until your statue edition comes in. LIMITED BATMOBILE EDITION CANCELLED? HERE YOU GO, HAVE SOME EFFING SKINS.
Was thinking the same thing. Most of those people are getting $20 credit from the places they ordered from though. So it's a little better. But I do still think the statue people are making out better. Many will wait for their copy and sell the digital code. Worth more then the $20 credit the batmobile people are getting.
Or others will take the code and dump the pre-order if that can be made?!
Or better yet, sell the code and just wait for the physical copy.
That's only an amazon thing though,not every retailer.
Wonder if they'll have them in stock again anywhere after all this...
I wonder if this will affect all versions and and platforms. I'm okay with it as long as Amazon sends me a digital code for the game.
Can anyone confirm.if we still get the physical copy of the game with the steel book if we accept or use the download code??
Yeah we will.
Woooooooooow. This is the most botched collector's edition launch I've seen in a long time. I feel bad for anyone who pre ordered this or the Batmobile Edition.
Yeah just gotta wait till this game comes out in GOTY form.
Goddamn. I'm hoping the limited edition PS4 bundle doesn't have some last minute Issues. I'm paying a pretty penny to have that, and been waiting a long time. Fingers crossed launch goes smoothly!
They are giving digi codes to those affected so its a non issue. U will still get your SE goodies when theyre ready.
I'm one of those that are affected and I must say that yes, it sucks in a way and it's weird that it isn't ready, but I truly appreciate the way they handle the situation. I can only assume that something went wrong in the production of an item (staue most likely) of the Limited Edition. So the give those affected a code for the game and all the DLCs now so that they can still enjoy the game on its release is by far the best way to handle the situation. I know I'm gonna hat all the DLC bs WB will pull off but still +1 for WB and amazon on that one. Btw the date I was given is July 10 or earlier.
WOW I might just cancel my order
does this effect US as well? because i haven't received any email yet...if it does affect US i am going to cancel my pre order and just get the regular version
It shouldn't. I work for a video game retailer in the US(I'll let u guess which one) and we have received all of our Arkham Knight items save for the canceled Batmobile editions. That includes the LE PS4 bundle, reg PS4 bundle, Arkham Knight LE's and the standard edition games
I get a feeling that this is an issue only with amazon.Uk editions package because Gameseek.Uk haves the same Limited edition ready too ship!Maybe some accident happen at Amazon deposit that screw the packs or during transport...its strange other sellers have it for sale and only Amazon.Uk dont.
This is really sad for those who are effected by the delay.
Any idea what time they are sending the email with download code? Midnight middayerc? As 45 gb plus patch file size with compression that's still like 30gb download...
