Right now if you preorder Batman Arkham City on PS3 or XBOX 360 at walmart.com as a bonus you get a $10 e-gift card and Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition for $59.96 + tax and shipping. Great deal especially if you don't already have Arkham Asylum!

Seems like a good deal if you haven't the first like me. I think this is the best deal yet if you haven't played the first. I am probably just going to sell the Special Edition I got from amazon for 60.

Great find, audilover. Glad I held off on buying a used GotY copy during the current GoHastings sale. I currently have a 360 version pre-ordered with Amazon but if they don't match it, I'll probably get it at Walmart.

I'd imagine Arkham Asylum will be the same version as the one you're pre-ordering.

I am a bit lost with your comment. Basically I am wondering if they are going to give us a download code OR if they will actually give us the game.

Buy the 360 version of Arkham City, get the 360 version of Arkham Asylum. Same with the PS3. I don't think the Goty Edition of Asylum is on the Games on Demand service for the 360 and I'm not sure about the PS3 side of the matter. Are you asking if Asylum will be a PC download code?

Ok now I understand. I was talking about PSN/LIVE [I always prefer the game disc]. I am assuming they will give us an actual disc. Thanks and enjoy this deal

Great deal. Batman: AA goty edition, I hear, lets you double up on achievements. So, if you've been looking for an excuse to replay it before arkham city...

Really good deal I'm tempted. I've been eating to replay. Wish I could order the ps3 version and get the 360 game.

Is this true?

I got all achievements for the regular version, so I'm wondering if this is even worth it. That said, I don't have Batman AA any more because I gave it to my brother, and he lost it.

Will it come in a separate case? With this, Amazon needs to go up to at least a $20 credit for me to buy there, maybe a $25 credit.

Yes. I know you can get separate achievements for vanilla Arkham for the 360, PC, and GotY 360 and PC. I already 1000'd the vanilla versions and have been waiting for the GotY 360 version to come down (I know I've skipped the past few sales on the PC version but I was waiting for an even lower price as Arkham City gets closer). I've also read you can get them for the vanilla 360 Japanese version of the game.

Wow, that makes things a lot more interesting. I don't know if I'd want to do those freeflow challenge rooms again though. I had a lot of fun doing them, but I'd have to re-master the combat again, which took a decent amount of time.

Hmmm...well, Walmart has the best deal right now, but I'll wait it out.

if Amazon matches this then I'm sold (with AA GOTY included). Have a lot of credit there that I would rather use up instead of spending at Walmart.

I ordered arkham city already but if amazon matches this than I will cancel my order and just reorder it. The la noire credit that I used on it lasts a year correct ? If so then I will defiantly do this deal. I'll just put the version of arkham asylum that has more value on amazon with the order and flip it to amazon when I get it (I've already beaten this great game so no need to keep the game)

Yeah I believe you have 1 year to use up a preorder credit. I have never actually played AA beyond the demo and I was considering buying it for 360, but it hasn't been in stock for over a week. Now this deal pops up at Walmart so getting AA for free with a preorder of Arkham City would be awesome if Amazon matches it.

You have it backwards. Amazon quickly matched Walmart on the $10 GC, and this was quite some time ago.

Looking at it the Arkham Asylum ships with the Arkham City right?
That sucks I wouldn't mind paying the full price now if it meant I could get the AA now so I can play it before AC comes out

Guess I didn't see it when walmart put the credit first, oh well. Now its time for amazon to match walmart again lol

So if I can get aa goty now so I can play through it I will easily jump onthis. If I don't get it until AC ships then I'll pass.

If Amazon does match it (and I hope they do) then you won't have to cancel & reorder, you'll get it if you already have the game preordered. That's the way their preorder stuff always works.

Wow, for ONCE in the world Wal-Mart actually has a good deal on a game :applause: I voted them as CAG Crappiest Store (or w/e it's called) last year because I didn't buy a single game from them the whole year, stupid MSRP store which people blindly buy from.

This one is like $10 gift + $30 game (though frequently found at $20) Now all I can hope for is that they actually give a separate GotY edition and not some download voucher, because otherwise I'm returning it.

It is unlikely to be download only, given there are a fair number of arcade/4gb 360s units out there...To me it is more a question does it come in a separate case or is it simply just a second disk inside the Arkham City case?

Sweet ! So if it was matched then I assume that amazon would ship me the 360 version of arkham asylum ?
