Batman Arkham Bundle appears

New $50 Xbox 360, PS3 compilation pack to include Rocksteady-developed Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, according to product listings.

by

Warner Bros. will release the $50 Batman Arkham Bundle next week, a compilation pack featuring both Rocksteady Studios-developed games, according to product listings on GameStop.

The Batman Arkham Bundle, according to the listings, will include Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009) and Batman: Arkham City (2011). It will be released on September 23 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, according to GameStop.

Both games included in the bundle are their Game of the Year versions, featuring all previously released downloadable content for the Caped Crusader titles.

The next entry in the Batman Arkham series is Arkham Origins, a prequel in development at WB Games Montreal for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U, but not next-generation consoles. The game launches on October 25 and includes a series-first multiplayer component.

This Arkham Offers New Features not Graphics....
It May Run On heavy Cards Smoothly but Its Similar to Arkham CITY....
Gameplay is Also same They Should have changed Gameplay to make it more Challenging At this rate You will Complete the game in Few Days Not Weeks....

Does every single game need a multiplayer component?!!!

For some reason, batman arkham games cut their princes veeeery often, unlike COD games. Very weird considering Arkham games are few of the best for consoles. I'll wait 3 months until this budle is 40 bucks

Funny cause I just got Asylum, City AND Origins for less than that ($46) at Green Man Gaming last week. Consoles am cry.

Don't see the point of a bundle when many gamers already own own both games. heck i have the game of the year edition of both arkham asylum and Arkham city.

Overpriced, and in a year they'll release these and the new game in a new bundle for less. Probably with added exclusive content.

What a waste.

Well overpriced, even for consoles.
Got them much cheaper on Steam.

Come on consoles, you'll need to do better - I want you to do better - with keeping up with Steam sales. This $50+ beyond the first month shit has got to go.

Got both games (PC goty versions) for like $5 from Amazon last year's winter sale.

I'll get both of them much cheaper on a Steam sale.

Over-priced bundle. Amazon UK has Batman: Arkham Asylum priced at around £10 and Arkham City GOTY edition for £15. Both together are a full £15 cheaper than this bundle. Lol.

Sounds awesome, until you realize you can buy both of them on Amazon for cheaper than $50.

EDIT: Just checked, you can buy both with all the DLC for $30.

@jflkdjs they seem to think that's what "the people" want. IMO games like Batman, GTA, etc don't need multiplayer. But I guess I'm the minority so....

@Sheik2 or just by the gotye editions of arkham city and asylum for $10 bucks less than this package.

@SkytheWiz1 I get tired of hearing "I got it on Steam for cheaper". Yeah we know Steam is great and sells games for way cheaper, but without a good PC to run said games, Steam is no good to us.

@SkytheWiz1 yeah - I got AA on Steam too.... and I have to be online to play it.... but with the PS3 I can play it all day without "checking in". I don't know why ya'll praise Steam so much, it's still DRM....  at least it's cheap (sometimes!)

@themc_7 Yeah! I think Tomb Raider also didn't need multiplayer.

@themc_7 @SkytheWiz1

Over 90% of the games I get are for consoles. That being said, MY point is that console games shouldn't remain $50+ when they're available on PC for $20-30.

I'm sorry if I come across as if I'm a PC elitist or something; that's not my goal. I am definitely a console gamer first and think we get the short end on so many levels - mods, graphics, and cost.

@jimbo6923 @SkytheWiz1 

As I told themc_7, I'm not much of a PC gamer. I'm commenting to ADVOCATE for consoles.

DRM, though, is becoming more and more common. But PC still has the benefits; they can add mods, they have the better graphics - so why are console consumers being charged more?

My original post was because I'm becoming annoyed with Sony and Microsoft, not because I'm praising PCs or Steam.

@Cozm1kaos @RossRichard Yep, bundles are usually bad deals/scams. You always wanna see if you can get things seperately at better deals.

@PatchMaster @themc_7 my point is, you said you got it all 3 games for $46 which is bullshit because origins isn't even out, and if you are downloading it at midnight on launch, it'll be $60

@SkytheWiz1 @themc_7 agreed. In an ideal competitive market, console games would have similar prices and sales as PC. Sadly that isn't the world we live in....for now
