Dude, that batarang is bad ass! I wonder how sharp it is. I would buy a sheet of drywall just to throw the batarang into it.
47.99 :) the price alll games should be...i wonder if next-gen(ps4+720) games will cost 69.99??
They already do in Canada.
Stopped buying games brand new, I just use Kijiji.ca from now on.
Damn that is a freaking nice collector's edition, but if I had that batarang I'll get sued when I accidentally stick it in someone's car!
Hey Sev, Don't know if you care or not, but from amazon, the bonus disk is BR and not DVD.
It would have been sweet if it came with a PS3 controller shaped like a batarang. I will always miss that design.
"It would have been sweet if it came with a PS3 controller shaped like a batarang. I will always miss that design." Oh God no! lol I will be getting this game from Amazon now(tomorrow actually) that's if the code works for 360 version. Game looks to be awesome, can't wait. This will tie me over until Halo: ODST drops. Plz don't bubble me down for saying that. I will be getting Uncharted 2 if that helps.
Is the game, open world? Is there a demo out yet?
Nothing wrong with buying the game on your console of choice. :D I'm can't decide whether to get the collectors edition or not....ugh, a certain someone would definitely castrate me. But that Batarang looks so sick!
nice, I'm still on the fence about this one. It will either be really bad or really good. but that's a great deal!
why do you think they're already offering the game at a discount?
"why do you think they're already offering the game at a discount?" Uhhhh, maybe to get you to buy the game off Amazon as opposed to Gamestop or Best Buy...
by that logic, modern warfare 2 would be at a discount as well, but it's still 59.99 cuz they know it'll sell well. I guarantee you'll be able to get this game in the bargain bins within 6 months.
is higher priced for pre-order because Activision are a bunch of greedy A-holes and probably precluded the game for going less than MSRP even on Amazon or for a special. The PC version is $10 more in the US, what's that tell you...Bad example. Almost all games besides MW2 are less than $59.99 on Amazon to pre-order, go do some searching before making naive claims.
Just ordered mine a few minutes ago at Best Buy....Futureshop is sold out!
I'm waiting for the demo this Thursday! I hope it's good!
Just waiting for the demo to see if I'll buy!
Trust me man. You're gonna love the game. I can't wait for the limited edition. Definitely the one I'm getting.
Yes, another five bucks off! Batman: Arkham Asylum total comes to: 47.99, free shipping!!!
I've got AA on pre-order for £22 which is roughly $37.38. Couldn't pass the game up at that price!
They have virtually no competition during this period + kudos to them for the awesome preorder bonus
Do any other stores feature pre-order bonus?
this shows lack of confidence in their game expect low reviews
there are two playstation sites that gave it a good score: playstation beyond:9/10 http://www.psbeyond.com/rev... OPM:9/10 http://s755.photobucket.com... http://www.psu.com/forums/s...
With no competition and this price, it will sell good.
get the shaft again. At least my copy is cheaper, and runs better, and sounds better...and... Ok. I'll take it. : P
Actually, I preordered the PC version using the coupon code from Amazon for 39.99. It doesn't hit until 9/15, but my store (I run a Blockbuster) will get the 360 version the day before it comes out. I'll play it for free, then replay the PC version. Did the same thing with Red Faction. Despite the glitches, I like Games For Windows Live. Achievements, plus much better visuals, & mods.
Can't wait to play as the Joker.I think it's him alone that will make this game great.
A bonus character in a side game isn't that significant.
@ 2.1 - But it's still THE JOKER. Single Handedly the coolest villain in comic book history! ~~ http://tiny.cc/yzUel
They made a wise choice with the exclusive content for the PS3. We know all PS3 gamers buy and play games. Unlike those bots who lie and pretend they do. http://www.n4g.com/industry... Poor lying bots.
Their moms can only buy them one game a year - usually gears or halo for their birthday.. On second thought, yeah, you can actually lay the blame on those bots. They are already in their 20's and still rely on their moms to spend for their gaming hobby.
Should I go with Amazon for the price?! Or should I go with Gamestop with the exclusive Scarecrow level?!
Go with Amazon.com and have a friend get it online from Gamestop. Once they e-mail them the code, have him send the original e-mail to you, and send it back to Gamestop saying the code doesn't work. They'll give it to you guaranteed. Source: My friends and I do it all the time. It's how I got the Gigawatt blades for inFamous and the Kratos DLC from them.
Finally a game with a great collector's edition done right.
What a sad bunch of individuals ! Do yourselves a favour and get a life.
i bet they never got laid
Meh. I'll rent it from Gamefly, if I beat it and decide It's worth keeping I'll buy it off them for less than $48
get the case when you purchase from Gamefly?
"Do you get the case when you purchase from Gamefly?" Yes, you do. You also get the game manual. They mail it to you free of charge(when you buy the game).
That's one of the sole reasons I miss renting from GameFly. They have some awesome sales.
this same news has been posted 4 times in the past 2 days!!! http://www.n4g.com/News-371... http://www.n4g.com/News-371... http://www.n4g.com/News-371...
I pray this game is good. A good summer title is always welcome.
you can find out via the demo coming out this friday.
... doesn't this concern anyone?
Amazon always does this. You must not be a cheap ass gamer (www.cheapassgamer.com). I find deals like this all the time. Killzone 2 for me was $35 brand new the day it came out, lol. You just gotta look for the deals (also www.slickdeals.net).
