does anybody know when this deal will end?

:)

Hopefully it will last a while. If not then amazon won't bother to match it

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


No, they always like to switch it up on you. If you order for 360, you get the ps3 version of Arkham asylum, and vice versa. Well, they might ship the pc version with a console purchase of arkham city for a little more variety.

Thanks for the heads up!

**They charged me immediately just in case anyone was curious. I haven't ordered from Walmart in ages so I don't know if this is normal practice or not. A little surprised they don't wait until the order is shipped but no big deal.

I preordered Arkham City for $56 plus the $10 egiftcard from walmart a few weeks ago and was bummed when I saw this. I went into my account to try and edit the order and it looks like they automatically upgraded me without having to do a thing. That made my night!

I would do this if I could get AA immediately to play before AC comes out. Couldnt I just buy AA from a brick and mortar WM, purchase this promotion, then return the AA that comes with AC using the receipt from the brick and mortar purchase?

I'll consider picking this up if AA comes in a physical disc, rather than downloading it through PSN or having it on the AC disc.

No, it looks to be an arkham asylum disc inside the arkham city case. I don't think there is a downloadable goty edition. Look at the cover, it looks like it's an exclusive edition that includes Arkham Asylum in disc form.

That's unfortunate, I was hoping for a separate case, now I have to hope Amazon goes up to $25 or at least $20 for their credit.

Now only question is will the case have that blue strip saying its from Walmart? $40 in credit wouldn't make me bite if so lol

You'll get charged for the $10 gift card now. As for the game, when it ships.

Well, what they do is charge you the price of the GC now, then charge you the difference between the full price and the GC later. So if you paid $60 for the bundle, they'll charge the $10 now, and $50 later. It's just to make sure there's no problems since they send you the GC immediately (which is kinda nice, easier to chain GCs together).

I was charged the full $65 bucks immediately. I received the GC a few minutes later. Paid via a Visa debit card.

No, that's a sticker on the wrapper, it's a normal case.

Download. Code.

I know it's a sticker. If you read the sticker, it's saying it includes a full copy of Batman Arkham Asylum goty, not a voucher code. Not only that, you think the 3D version of Arkham Asylum is available for download on 360 and ps3? They don't have the goty version available for download.

I guarantee you it's not a voucher.

Look at what it says:

"Bonus Game: Includes a full copy of Batman: Arkham Asylum -- Game of the Year Edition" Key words: full copy, game of the year edition. I have no idea how you're getting voucher code from that. It's more likely to be in a separate case than as a voucher code, but I think it's a disc that comes inside the Arkham City package.

It also says further down that it includes Batman AA Goty edition, again, no mention of a voucher code. I will be incredibly surprised if it ends up being a voucher.

it looks like one of those 2 packs that is wrap in a ribbon. If it says full copy then its the disc.

Why do people who want to give developers more money always get screwed? Between this and no getting amazon credit, they're making me want to just wait and buy the CE later when it's on clearance.

I wish somebody would offer a better credit for this game. With so many games this season, it's getting insanely expensive to try to get everything. Heck, I'd rather get a $20 WM GC than AA GotY, seeing as how I don't really care for the GotY stuff.

I might just get it from WM anyway. Amazon's FSSS is really bad now- most of my stuff do not ship for 4-5 business days (before, they'd almost always ship in 2 days and only occasionally take more than that).

The ONLY products that have shipped full game DLC codes as a part of the package are new consoles with huge empty hard drives (such as alan wake on last year's 360 bundle and that 5 game bundle up in Canada at the moment). Sure, some games have shipped supplemental DLC codes for content that might be 300MB or so, but not full games that require 5+GB of space, of which more than a few 360s models don't have the capacity to handle...Even the 20gb pros only have about 8-9 GBs of useable space. Walmart doesn't want to deal with pissed off customers on something they are doing as a promotion, so it will be on disk.

That looks to be a paper banner wrapping the case, which could be holding the two game cases together...although I think it is much more likely that they will just stick a 2nd disk holder inside the case (both to avoid the cost of 2nd case, keep shipping weights lower and to be able to fit more on a shelf in the store).

probably not worth waiting for the Wii U version of it for most people. Not to mention, you have to buy a whole new console just to play this game. If you have a backlog of other games you'd prefer playing first, then maybe it would be worth it for you to wait it out until then. But if money isn't an issue and you can wait, it really just comes down to your preference. Hard to know what (if anything) they add to make the Wii U version better/preferred over 360/PS3 versions.

These types of deals seem odd. I mean, who would pay full price, or close to full for AC if they didn't already play AA? Why wouldn't such a person have bought AA when it full price, or the many months after that it was cheaper? I'm sure there are certainly some that this deal is perfect for but for most buying, I imagine they'd have a copy of AA they didn't want/need

AA never dropped cheap enough for me to get it, especially when unemployed. I have a sweet new job so I am totally all over this.
