Batman: Arkham City Launch Issues Not A Joke

WorthPlaying writes, "Warner Bros. has missed the ball with the Batman: Arkham City. Many fans who picked up the Collector's Edition have been reporting a number of serious issues. PS3 owners were promised a copy of the animated movie, "Batman: Gotham Knight" on Blu-ray, but they only received it on DVD. The four collectible cards and Catwoman unlock code are simply not included in the package, while the Robin DLC redeem code is not working at all." (Batman, Batman: Arkham City, DLC, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

thats what they get for taking away Single player content and putting it as a Online pass so even if you bought the game new some people cant use it since not everyone one is connected to the internet. rocksteady, you should've just had the content in the game from the start instead of making this online pass crap just to make an extra buck.

Ill wait for the proper crack and then play all of it.
----For normal price.

Agreed. Too many "exclusive" pre-order offerings and not enough planning. If you read the official forums there are even people complaining about the DLC being corrupt after downloading and crashing the game. :(

Sucks to see what looks like a good game plagued by a poorly organized launch.

Good. No offence meant to the poor people who've been fucked over, but I hope this practice gets thrown out the window.

Pre-order bullshit, DLC, all of it. It's just a pain in the arse, and here it is plain to see.

The extra outfits are a joke. Shouldn't we be rewarded with them by playing through the game.

Capcom started it. I blame trophies and achievements. I think they have tried to replace in game rewards with them.

Yeah! The good old fashioned way.

Capcom were good for that, PS1 era; till they went evil.

LOL, I feel sorry for people who buy this Day 1. It looks like a great game, but I refuse to buy anything day 1 with DLC/Online Passes/Skins/Pre-Order BULLSHIT all over the fucking place.

I'll wait for the GOTY edition thanks.

I'm weak of will. I can't help myself. I'm sorry. I just love Batman.

I'd also make a terrible Green Lantern.

The collectors edition should come with one of these,


that's just a bit better than the resolution this game and all other console games run in!

Well it's actually 389,120 pixels better quality than the best that ps3 and 360 support!
