Thanks CaoPi, got myself one. It says 2-3 weeks for shipping, not a big deal since I have plenty of games to play right now.

Maybe someone can answer in this thread: Are save files from the vanilla edition incompatible with this edition? Also, if I already got the platinum trophy for the vanilla :ps3: version, will I be able to earn a second set of trophies for the GotY :ps3: version? I read somewhere that someone was able to get the trophies a second time on the GotY.

I'm not sure if it's the same for the ps3 but that's how it is on the Xbox.

The vanilla saves are not compatible with the GOTY. Not sure if the trophy list is different.

Technical differences aside, the PS3 version has exclusive Joker levels.

Thanks, but I'd really appreciate an answer for the :ps3:; if there isn't a second set of trophies, then I'll just wait for my cousin to return the vanilla copy I loaned him, but if there is, I'll get the GotY just to have an excuse to play AA again before going through the AC GotY. :D

The GOTY edition is like a whole other game; different trophy lists, save data and installs/dlc. If you got the vanilla copy I'd recommend sticking to it, because the 3D effect isn't very good. Ruins the games color pallet and is only noticeable on batman himself.

3D effect can be turned on/off, so GOTY edition is only worth it if you don't have a copy already.

If it's like a whole other game, then I think I might pick it up (worthless 3D effect notwithstanding :roll:); I already platinumed the vanilla copy I loaned and it'd be cool to play through it again to try for the "second" platinum trophy. ;)

Thanks OP... snagged a copy and then locked in a trade for $8+ for my vanilla PS3 copy. Worked out well I think.

Despite what has been said, I'm actually pretty sure there is only one trophy list, unless of course you get the Japanese version of the game.

I remember reading something about this on a 360 achievement guide site. From what I remember, this game is separate from the vanilla edition, meaning you can earn all the trophies/achievements all over again. Saves are incompatible between each other as well.

Come to think of it, I remember yesterday seeing someone's post of all 6500 gamescore points they got from all the different versions of Batman on PC and 360.

Yes, this only applies to achievements for PC/360. This unfortunately doesn't apply to PS3's trophies.

If you haven't played this game yet and don't buy it for $10, what are you doing with your life?
