Did not see this listed on the Sunday ad. I think this is going to be ported to console eventually but I think this is an okay price for it right now if you've been wanting to get it, especially if you're GCU.

 

Also, just noticed Amazon has price matched the Vita version.

Just a heads up this game is coming to PS3/360/Wii U soon. I think the price will be 20 but dont remember.


Selling GTA V and Ghosts Steel book for $10 and the GTA hat for $15

Correct on the $20 part.  As a fan of the Arkham games I've always wanted to try it out but I heard the 3DS version wasn't so great.

Digital-only, from what I've heard. :cry:

Grabbed a Vita copy earlier tonight when I saw it on the CAG price drop section on the front page.  $16+tax isn't too bad, and trades in for $12 on Amazon so I figured I'd enjoy it for a $5 rental.

Eek $20 for a download. I will wait for a PSN sale.  For $20 I'd rather have a physical copy for my Vita.

Wow, so it IS going to be ported to console after all! Not sure how I feel about digital-only though.

Thanks OP. Got a vita one. Would prefer the 360 port but with this I could at least get rid of it when I'm done.

after reading the reports I honestly don't think this is going to be digital I believe the only physical copy is pc and the rest will be physical copies on the rest of the systems

Am I the only one that thinks a bit silly to insert the GCU price into opening posts and even thread titles? I assume most competent people know how to subtract 20% from a price. Anywho, I digress.

 

Tempted to grab this at $20 but I've heard/read rumblings that it's simply not very good.

I put the GCU part in the title because it seemed to be standard. I don't think it hurts anything, it just saves you time if you're a GCU member from trying to calculate the price in your head -- and I am all about efficiency. 

 

I've also heard the same about the game, so I actually didn't place my order until after I did this thread. I figure that worst case scenario is that I can play it a bit, get the trophies, and then sell it for around $10 after I'm done.

It looks like a price drop--$19.99 is the new MSRP.

I can't decide of I want to get the 3ds version, or just wait for it on the 360. Dodd anyone have any thoughts on the 3ds version?

I got this on the 3DS over the winter and really enjoyed it. I think it got a bad rap. It reminds me a lot of Shadow Complex.

I heard this was kind of a stinker...  or what it just a decent game that was priced too high?

At least your Best Buy carries Vita games. We still only have Smart As and All-Stars at mine. That's it. Ever.
