These guys do seem to have not dossed around with such an important project which is a good sign, using both martial art experts to mo-cap Batman's moves and running through ideas with someone who knows the source material very well are giving me great hopes (along with the trailers I've seen.)

@FlamingHobo: That and the demo is pretty awesome.

Looks good

I'm thinking of buying this

@RsistncE: The demo is really sweet.  I downloaded it this morning and played it.  I may go play it again right now.

The design inside the asylum reminds me of Bioshock. That's always good.

I wonder why. Maybe it's the new slim one, I can't think of another logical reason.
Posted by Agnogenic_delete

I can do the kick shown in the video! :D

'K now it's working for me. Guess I got to it a bit early.

You know if you look at the size of the consoles that they blur out, they do appear to be the same shape as a PS3 but thinner so my guess is that yeah they are the new slim PS3s

Mark Hamill as the joker = A++++++

Posted by hwarang

I don't think those are slim PS3. Those are Dev kits. And I think the one on the right side of the screen is actualy an XBox360 dev kit because the blur looks white. Actually the dev kit may be black for XBox so I'm not sure why it looks white.

if joker isn't playable in the X360 version, I heard only PS3 is getting him. Go fcuk the developers and the game

Posted by Valames

Putting Bane in a game is about all you need to do to get me to buy it. I bought Lego Batman for goodness sakes. ....but I liked it.

That's not a dev kit, its just a regular PS3

How do you know? As far as I know they use either a dev kit or a "Debugging" machines but not regular machines.

This is a PS3 Dev Kit.  
 
PS3 Debugs look exactly the same as retail consoles, the only difference between them is the software they are able to play.

just played the demo gonna buy it first day:) finally an amazing batman game

Posted by patrick5152003

the demo is sweet

Posted by IrradiatedTurnip

Mark Hamill as the Joker is just perfect to me. I grew up with his voice as the Joker in the cartoons.  
Plus, Paul Dini is a great writer. I have high hopes for this game, now!

Posted by oraknabo

Dini's involvement is impressive. 
The voice cast is the best they could have gotten. 
The demo is very good, but doesn't give a good indication of any real challenges since it's the tutorial. 
 
I think this will easily be the best Batman game so far.
The only real question is will it be long enough to satisfy and will it not get too repetitive?

Hey, blame Sony for signing the exclusive deal with DC in the first place.
Posted by Stargate174
@Banjo_ace: Dude its not my fault the developers like to only support one console more fully than the other. Joker is a big part of Batman and to be exclusively playable only on the ps3. They deserve all the crap people throw at them.
 
Also if he is later released as DLC it is to steal more money for greed. They can place him on the disk like they are doing w/ the ps3.
Posted by Squeezemahlemon

all the people getting pissed off about not being able to play as the joker on ps3...what about ps3 people and the fallout 3 dlc, i think thats more unfair than being to play as an additional character that wont be that good really

oi brits

 British accents! so you know their really British. 

Posted by Media_Master

still looking forward to playing a great batman game

Posted by Myrmidon

This looks to be a pretty decent game. Only issue for me is that as far as I'm aware the only major location in the game is the asylum, which offers a really limited scope of visuals. I imagine it will get a bit boring after a while.
 
But the combat, judging by all the videos I've seen on Giantbomb, looks fucking awesome.

Were you that passionate when only the 360 and PC users got all the DLC for fallout 3 and MS and Bethesda basically shafted all the PS3 users? Did you also say Fuck Bethesda and fuck Fallout 3?
 
Were you that passionate when only the 360 users got the DLC for GTA 4 and Agian Ps3 users got shafted? Did you also say Fuck Rockstar and Fuck GTA 4?  
   
  Why do I have the feeling that the answer to both of these questions are a big NO.
 
So now when PS3 users get some exclusive DLC for a game you say 'Fuck the Developer and Fuck this game?!". You know what...You're a hypocrite.

@Stargate174: they only get him in challenge mode, it is nothing to do with story... still pissed?
Posted by Stargate174
@Mordukai: I'm not bothered that the Xbox 360 got that DLC exclusive. I heard some of it is maybe Timed exclusive. And I didn't bother with any of that DLC
 
Still I wanna play as the Joker in the game and I told loads of people and they aren't getting the game because of not being able to play as the Joker who is a big part of Batman.
 
I don't think GTA4 took out cars when they shipped it to the ps3 platform. It had the exact same as the X360 version when released.
 
My idea is they will release him down the line for DLC and mug our pockets for more money when he should be on the F-ing disk in the 1st place.
 
I wonder who's plan it was to do this. Maybe they need better creative and marketing people who know what the fcuk they are doing with the game.
 
This is going to be one of the developers who I never buy one game from.
Posted by VilhelmNielsen

 If I get this, it's gonna be used... Why?
 
Because I hate Eidos with a passion.

Posted by sixpin
@Stargate174: In other words, you are mad because you don't own a PS3.
 
Sony paid for the Joker exclusive content. Gamestop paid for the exclusive on Scarecrow. Double bonus for those that buy the PS3 version from Gamestop.
Posted by Stargate174
@Alaska_Gamer: I'm angery because they like to support another console more fully than the other. I guess they were never a good developer in the first place to begin with.
 
What descent titles have they ever developed besides batman
Posted by Monkeyman04

I can't wait for this game to come out. The one thing I love the most is that they got Mark Hamill to play his role as the Joker again. IMO, he has the best Joker laugh out there.

that was awesome like 1 min ago
