VG247: Squeidosenix just confirmed that the PC version of Batman: Arkham Asylum will not release until September 15 in North America and September 18 in Europe and Australia.
Why do PC games ALWAYS come out way after the console version? I hate when we get shafted, although I guess this is a decent tradeoff for better graphics and controls.
Every developer by now knows you release on PC later. I was skeptical but I knew that they would delay Batman PC version, it was the only title claiming the same release date for both PC & console version. No one does it anymore, too easy to pirate games on PC nowadays especially games like Batman where their main focus is single player campaign. If you're smart you release it on console and make your money first where its harder to pirate. And then drop it on PC for the enthusiast gamer.
Did you even read the god damned article? They said the reason for the 3 week delay is for PhysX support. That's more than worth the wait in my opinion. It has nothing to do with piracy. Enjoy your dumbed down console version, asshat.
It's not a fps so i dont see how you'd claims better controls . But otherwise yeah it's silly , especially when their "please forgive me" extra is something that would only work for nvidia cards
Well I still like the way the keyboard feels alot better than a controller, some people think the opposite. And PhysX is one of the few reasons I still haven't switched to ATI yet, I really like the effects.
that a lot of gaming rigs will run this at 60+ fps instead of 30 gives you much better response for controls. Which helps. I'm sure it will support the 360 control pad, as almost all games released do. The reason I say almost, is for some reason Fear 2 didn't... Anyway, this kind of sucks for me. I use ATI chips. I don't see this game taking tooo much advantage of the physics. I don't feel that was the real reason for the delay. I guess we'll see.
@dithurts Why do you think 60fps will make this game better? I really dont understand that. This is not a racer or even flashy shooter. Not sure about this game yet. How long is it? I'm waiting for the demo to feel the gameplay. It looks good though.
"Why do you think 60fps will make this game better? I really dont understand that. This is not a racer or even flashy shooter." Well when you're playing on a PC and basically right in front of the screen, you have a much better feel for the framerate, and 30 fps doesn't always feel smooth enough. And I really like how smooth 60 fps feels.
I dont mind it cuz physx is very nice for mirror's edge. I just hope they will release the CE for the PC version in the US.
good move most ps3 owners have decent gaming pc's so delaying kills the piracy itch, and the controls unless the game is setup for pads will suck imo.
Why, it does not effect me though i am getting it on PS3.
that this game is published by edios but owned by Square...man that is irritating..but nothing wrong with a month to support a new engine, right?
while it's nice of them to add whatever feature that is, still can't they add it later on as a patch or something? Anyways, I'm really annoyed, I was hoping to try it out before classes started.
i think it's alright for the PC version to be delayed for 1 or 2 months, because of piracy, so it dooesn't hurt console sales, but it shouldn't be as ridiculous as gears, that took a year or so, or fable 2/gears 2, that we know that's hopefully coming someday
It's delayed by 3 weeks to add PhysX support. Did you even read the article?
