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.


i got AA for 14.99 from amazon last december. that was cheap enough for me.

anyone know how prompt wal mart is with their shipping? Do they offer release date delivery like Amazon?


I have used Walmart a few times and there shipping has treated me fine thus far. Hell the 97cent shipping option let me get my Mortal kombat the day after released (after having it preordered).

I would say if anything for me they seem to be quicker than amazon in most cases.

w/the GoW3 preorder, the email I got said it would arrive by the 26th. Not bad considering the weekend is want prolongs the delivery.

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.


Here's the ticket....joining this thought train

Sweet, had to jump on this amazing deal. Total for me was only $62.07 and delivery date is 10/18, which is the same day as release, hope it makes it!

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


This information is false. I was charged $10 for the $10 gift card when I first placed my order several weeks ago and the remaining balance was actually charged today even though this doesn't ship until next month.

It seems pretty random when they will charge you, it is definitely NOT when the game ships.

I was charged today for the remaining $55 as well - so I don't know how random it is - but yeah, that guy was way off. I tried to communicate that a couple pages ago. Hopefully a few people took notice and prepared accordingly.

When You Will Be Charged

Payment by credit, ATM, debit or check card:
The payment amount is authorized and held by your financial institution at the time you place your order. Your account is actually charged when your order ships.

Please note: Authorized and held amounts will not be available for other purchases. If an order is canceled, the authorization hold will expire in accordance with the terms of your bank or financial institution.

http://www.walmart.c...-Options/542185

I noticed the authorization hold as well on my credit card. informer, Broseph, did you actually get charged or was it just the hold as well?

Initially I was charged the entire $65. After about 72 hours or so that was reduced to $10.

Today the $55 showed up as a pending transaction/hold.

Not sure what this means but thankfully I have enough to cover it. Barely.

To further muddy things, I did use the $10 gift card a day or so ago and that item shipped today. Could be related to that I guess.

I'll probably call them tomorrow and try to make sense of it.

I only knew something happened because my credit card company called me about potential fraud and wanted me to confirm. This was strange since I ordered it a while ago so today's incident seemed random to me. It was too early to tell if it was a hold versus an actual charge (not even sure how holds are listed on online statements) but pretty happy with the credit card notification nonetheless. :applause:

The walmart website lists it as AA:GOTY, if you felt like playing through the game again and you like achievements...the GOTY has a separate list than from the regular edition of AA. So 4000 points PC: Batman AA & GOTY, 360: Batman AA & GOTY

I hope Walmart has both games inside the same case cause then i can sell the original game back. The point of it was to resale and get some more money back which is what i like about blu-rays that come with a DVD, i usually get another 10 dollars back....if im lucky.

Am I the only one not able to order? Both versions dont allow me to add it to my cart, but the collectors edition allows me to.

I ordered the standard 360 version about 30 min ago without a problem, already got the confirmation email and the gift card code. Contact their customer support or try in a different browser.

For what it's worth, the hold on my credit card has disappeared.

I also noticed that they're offering $0.97 shipping on the item now. Either I didn't notice this before or it wasn't offered when I pre-ordered on 8/25. The weird thing is that once I enter the checkout phase it's giving me free shipping and scheduled to arrive on or just after 10/18, where my pre-order was $1.97 shipping scheduled to arrive between 10/25 and 10/27. So of course I want the better shipping option (that is free and faster) but I can't modify the order. So I'm currently in the process of getting it canceled, but that's easier said than done. Already shot an email and got a response of "doing their best to honor my cancel request." Just shot another email hoping to get it canceled.

I can't find a thread on CAG talking about the different preorder costumes? I know the UK has several different ones available. Does anyone have those details for the US?

I'd rather get it on Amazon due to credit I have, but it looks like I'm going to be drawn to Walmart. How's their release day delivery? You can't choose a type of shipping - how reliable are they on pre-orders? I'm tempted to stick with Amazon anyway just because I can add the extra $1.00 and guarantee release day shipment.

Also, this is still the best running deal on Arkham City right? I was hoping something better would show up nearest to the release date (like $20 credit) but it looks unlikely at this point.

Can anyone confirm if Batman Arkham Asylum is a physical copy?
I hate DLC vouchers or codes :D

I just checked the PSN, and neither version of Arkham Asylum is on it. So unless it's uploaded between now and release date, it has to be a physical copy.

Do they send you the games together or will they send the Arkham Asylum now and then Arkham City when it comes out? Also, do you have to pay the $60 all right now or do they charge when it ships?

I may have to jump on this, awesome deal. And Walmart shipping was fairly quick when I did the 2 for $30 deal a few weeks back.

You'll get the games together. They charge you $10 now for the e-gift card, the rest will be charged when the games ship.
