Awesome, already have it though. 
 
Still, I wish Fable 3 comes out on it. :(

Awesome buy for anybody who doesn't already own a version of the game and doesn't need everything to be on Steam.

=/ I want to...but ugh...not sure if I want to sign up to GfWL. Also, from the demo it seems like an awkward port. SecuROM? Beh.

The PC version is anything but an awkward port. This is one of the few ports that is the definitive version, thanks to great PhysX effects. Just play it with a controller because the game was clearly intended to be.
 
Also who doesn't already have a Microsoft passport and plays games on PC?

Buy it if you don't already have it. Well worth $12. The GFW version plays smooth as butter with a 360 controller.

Do you not have a gamertag from the 360? All versions of Batman on PC use Games for Windows Live anyway. They kind of force it on you for DLC, achievements, patches and everything else. It's such a good game though. Also, as console game ports go it is pretty great. A very well optimized game, runs smoothly. Looks really great on PC. PhysX support is a nice touch for Nvidia GPUs. Xbox360 controller support is also a bonus.

That's a very nice deal. I already have a 360 copy though.

I fully endorse this statement.  I played it through on the PC on max settings and it looks and plays like a dream.  You do need a controller though.
