Batman: Arkham City in October

WBIE and DC Entertainment announce plans to release Batman: Arkham City for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in North America on October 18, in Australia on October 19, and Europe and other territories on October 21. The announcement is accompanied by three new screenshots, and this description of the game:

Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City – five times larger than the game world in Batman: Arkham Asylum – and the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new, all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.

Fair enough - PC version is currently £14.99 whilst the ps3 version is currently out of stock on the uk high streets. OFC you could buy 2nd hand and get if for about £15 on a scratched up disc - or you could have bought it in the steam sale for 75% off ofc on the pc.

That a dodgy call really - £14.99 new, £15 second hand or if your timing is right £3.75 new.

Think I'll stick with slightly older PC games and crack them tbh!

* apologies for quoting prices in sterling but I simply can't be bothered to convert them - you get the picture anyway!

Well I don't know where you buy your games. How can a game that isn't released yet, be sold out on the street already?
If you talk about Arkham Asylum, check this or this
I don't buy any used games and I don't waste money, I just know when and where to buy my games.

I'll do the same as with any GFWL-chained PC game that I want: buy it for my PS3.

Yeah! That'll show those damn publishers! Err... wait... no it won't. All it'll do is reduce sales of the PC version and increase sales of a console version.

If you're going to boycott games that use GFWL, you need to boycott it on ALL platforms. Buying it for another platform doesn't accomplish anything because the publisher is still getting your money.

Duh, yes they'll get the message if their PC sales drop to nearly non-existent, while the versions not bound to that crap sell millions. Or did you miss how Ubisoft changed their Online-DRM politics lately? Already forgot how their PC share fell to a single digit percentage?

Funny, you have the best example that it works right in the front of your nose and yet you deny it.
