I bit on the PS3 CE version and as of right now it's $93.99 with free shipping. I can't pass up playing as the Joker in the challenge levels... that's going to be awesome. I'm still holding on to my 360 version in my Amazon cart just in case they announce something though.

They had a nice display of the contents of the CE at E3 this morning. The outer bat shaped box is huge, like literally 18" long and probably 8" high by 4" deep. The batarang looks vaguely metallic black, but it is very small, roughly 6" long and maybe 4" high. It actually all looked really good and I could tell a lot of the people looking at it were impressed.

Here's some shots of the CE stuff I took at E3. Unfortunately the Batarang is plastic, but the case it all comes in is enormous.

Hm that's making me re-think my purchase and maybe I should just prebuy the reg version while it's still $53

Thank you for those pics! I'm sticking with the standard edition mainly because of the digipak case for the game disc. I'm really anal about my collection in that way. Overall, it's a good collectors edition, but not worth $100 IMO.

I agree with you. I like how Fallout 3 came. The regular the edition included with extras instead of a digipak.

Does anyone know the quality of the Batarang? Is it permanently attached to stand? I have the collectors edition reserved for the exclusive challenge maps, but I may cancel and just get the regular. Does not look like $40 worth of extras in that picture.

from what I hear, the combat is pretty simple and has little to no depth. Which is what I want in a batman game. All the things I've read/seen have really made me sad about this game, since I really want it to be great.

But that Batarang alone is enticing.

I'm thinking this will be half price 4 months after release because it's offered at every retail location and the plastic batarang won't pull enough people. It is a good looking CE though and if I had a few more Amazon coupons I'd probably bite as well.

This. If it wasn't plastic, i'd consider it, but it doesn't look to be worth the money.

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

I went ahead and pre-ordered the PS3 CE just after I got my 50% off coupon code for Amazon from the last trade-in promo and I couldn't be happier.
I traded 2 games for a a total of $52 (I bought them for a total of $30) add that with the coupon code and I got the CE with overnight shipping and the whole thing cost $35 including the cost of games traded in.
Only thing I don't like is the digi-pak...I guess I'll have to go down to Hollywood Video and convince them to give me the original case and replace it with a rental one :p

Has anyone found out if the DLC will be available later or is a true exclusive?

I didn't see it posted anywhere but is the Joker still a PS3 exclusive for use in challenge modes only?

Gamestop makes no remarks on the Joker being PS3 only, maybe they removed it and made it DLC for both consoles instead to cash in on more money it would bring over 2 platforms?

Thinking going Standard and wait n see on CE, $100 seems so high to cash in on Batman hype and movies it really seems more like a $79 ish dollar CE.

I remember the PS3 version being $91 for a moment. In any case, it's a great ECA opportunity.

Yup and it's never going to 360 or pc (at least thats what the devs say, but bethesda said the same thing about fallout 3 dlc so you never know) and the reason gamestop doesn't mention it is cause it's not a pre order exclusive, it'll be released on psn a week after the game, and it's not being used to bring in more money cause it's free.

The Joker DLC is PS3 exclusive, and according to Rocksteady/Eidos, will not be coming to the 360 or PC at any time.
I know there is other DLC that will be coming to all platforms such as the Crime Alley challenge room, which you can get right away with the CE instead of having to wait for them to release it on PSN/XBLA

Trust me, it's plastic and has been confirmed.

Not to mention it's been glued to the stand, in order to prevent people from stabbing friend's eyes out ;)

Guess I'm going CE. Use my 50% off on this, the 5$ off, eca, and the already discounted price..it's barely going to cost a dime. Use my new 30$ code on Demon's souls deluxe as that's only 70, so I'm only spending 5$ more. Was debating on the regular edition, but there are SO many discounts on this game...hey maybe that's a bad sign =P. I'll know after the demo comes out I guess.

I cannot post a photo because of fear of losing my job. I saw them today, they are hollow, cheap plastic. Not impressive at all. I had better feeling toys when I was a kid. You'll just have to take my word on this. I won't get fired for a cheap ass toy.
