According to the latest Twitter post from XboxWorld360, the Joker DLC is not PS3 exclusive to Batman: Arkham Asylum. It's coming to Xbox 360 and the game is the cover story for the May issue.
Looks like it was a Home screw up then.... Im guessing PS3 will be getting some exclusive content to do with the Joker, not the character itself.
I love how the author of this left out 'Rumor' for the title. Talk about desperate for hits.
If you guys read the Home thing again, it doesn't say the Joker is exclusive, just the Joker challenge maps. "Play as the Joker in the Exclusive Joker Challenge Maps Available only on the Playstation 3" That can also mean the 360 gets to play with Joker in some way. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
http://www.vg247.com/2009/0... Apparently Joker is exclusive to the PS3.
http://ps3.ign.com/articles... "Eidos Interactive and Warner Bros. announced today that the Joker will be a playable character in the upcoming title Batman: Arkham Asylum -- but only on the PlayStation 3. Joker will be available at the game's launch as a free downloadable item on the PlayStation Store. The press release notes that he will only be available for use in the Challenge Maps, so don't expect a massive single-player campaign associated with the legendary villain." The Home Advertisement http://assets.vg247.com/cur... Joker is exclusive to the PS3 unless Edios says otherwise. Anyways can't wait to play Batman: Arkham Asylum. Good to see us PS3 owners get some exclusive dlc even though I still believe its bullsh*t on either side 360 and PS3.
hmmmmm who cares?
People care this much about a Batman game? lol OMG exclusive Joker, it makes PS3 better! OMG us 360 boys get Joker too owned PS3 guy. C'mon guys, cut it out, this game isn't worth fighting for.
It seems like no one can read the post. The 360 is getting the challenge rooms but not playing as the Joker. “You’ve heard The Joker is playable in Arkham Asylum on PS3, right?” says the tweet. “Those stages are DLC on 360. It’s our May covergame; look forward to it.” Stages, not character.
... meh.... that's where I stopped caring about this game.
Yea. I just don't understand why they wouldn't put it on a Blu-ray disc instead of wasting Hardrive space.
oh great whew... i was panicking.
Just get a PS3 and you won't have to panic ever. ;)
That's not what he meant. He does have a PS3.
N4G would be finished if that were true. ;) Where would all of you go with nowhere to post paranoid and desperate user generated news and schizophrenic comments. Your very comment is contradicting. On topic. I wonder if this is true I'd rather see a different character for the 360 version. This will probably end up like SC5 with Yoda and Vader
*cough* sarcasm *cough* i know it's hard to pick up on the internet, but I thought it was pretty obvious. You people need to lighten up, 'scept morgan, since he's the only one that got it.
Haha The only person talking to #2 was #2.1 so your plead is moot.
who cares about what dlc comes to this below average looking superhero game...
wow you must be legally blind if you think this looks like a below average superhero game. This game is going to blow the doors off any other superhero game. unless you thought spiderman web of shadows was good LMAO
this game will fail just like everyother superhero based game...ima just sit back and watch how fans get upset when this hyped title turns out to be medicore
I didn't put a disagree on you, but I do disagree with what you wrote. From what have seen, the definitely doesn't look below average. It looks quite good. Also from a lot of preview I have seen, the people previewing it have been very positive about the game. I do agree however, it will probably fail. I think it looks terrific, but I highly doubt I will be picking this up.
It was bound to be a Darth Vader/Yoda-type situation.
hell is XboxWorld360 that came straight from wb/eidos it apparent XboxWorld360 dose not know what they are talking about
There a magazine and they did a story on the game, which will be in their next magazine
I'm not against DLC,but when they announce it before a game is out it's like - "Well,why couldn't you just give it us now?" Stop giving us 90% of a game we paid good money for.
the joker character is supposed to be free dlc on psn when the game releases
Joker DLC is NOT coming to the 360. This rumor is total BULL CRAP! I mean take a look at that twitter page...its a total joke. now 360 fans are gonna look foward to a DLC that isnt going to their system. Prepare to be heart broke 360 fans.
meh who cares one way or another
It will come out for 360 via DLC..... the same as an exclusive 360 playable character will be made available for the ps3 in the same manner. Don`t be so ******* stupid Fanboys, its all about the money.
Well, Apparently the "******* stupid Fanboys", as you put it, were in fact right. Are you gonna return with an apology to the "******* stupid Fanboys"? It would only count as fair. ;)
why aren't PS3 owners getting access to the Fallout3 content. It's more about the bullsh!t.
I'm not saying it's not true , but why are people caring about some obscure twitter , when eidos itself said it's exclusive ?
If playing Joker doesn't actually involve in the story than who cares. Just give me a kick ass Batman game with a great story and gameplay.
let me get this straight it Available only on the ps3 while the 360 get it via dlc am i the only one see the irony here. than again its only a rumor
eh... i'll wait for official word from MS... an ad in Home is convincing to me... a post on Twitter from "msxboxworld" is semi-convincing but not so much
Everyone getting access to all a game has to offer is good, IMHO. I think the only difference is that PS3 users will get it free while 360 users will have to pay for the DLC. At least it's not like Fallout 3.
Well this news is false. There is a post on the official eido forums that states. Originally Posted by mycoldman We have made no such announcement of these stages becoming available on Xbox 360. I would take that twitter post with an extreme pinch of salt as they have no more information on this than what we have already put out at this time. http://forums.eidosgames.co...
Because we had bad dreams about texting morse code to our friends.
we still need more info but the tweet says “You’ve heard The Joker is playable in Arkham Asylum on PS3, right?” says the tweet. “Those stages are DLC on 360. It’s our May covergame; look forward to it.” the news about the ps3 joker character never said 360 wouldn't have the challenges (as seen at gdc played as batman) just that the ps3 would have the joker as an option to play those challenges.. not to doubt the tweet but the all the tweet says is that they too get the challenges which i thought was already common knowledge.
I bet that's what they mean. The stages will be playable, which I expected any way, but the joker won't be.
I personally could care less if 360 owners get to play as The Joker or not. I just know I can :)
Be honest you care a little or else you wouldn't be in here your comment is bendictive. Hope 360 fans get a different character.
Xbox 360 gets exclusive panty-wearing Robin...EIDOS hates you all! Man, wouldn't that be a slap in the face. IF Eidos went all Namco-Bandai on us and gave each platform a goody baddy variant, whooo...again the PS3 would win out with cool factor.
"You've heard The Joker is playable in Arkham Asylum on PS3, right? " Yup, sure have. "Those stages are DLC on 360." Cool. Doesn't mean you can play as the Joker in them. ;) Pretty evident the stages will be available on the 360, but not the Joker.
N i blame MS for starting it all kinda sorry to see Sony jump on the bandwagon now too. Anyone who pays full price for a game deserves to have a full game! hell i think thats my new sig.
OWNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
