Video Shows Batman Breaking More Than Release Date Schedules

Submitted by on Saturday, 2 May 20093 Comments

intensive_treatment_17_resizeWe all had a different reaction to the recent news of Batman’s delay, but we can all still agree that we want to play Batman: Arkham Asylum as soon as it hits the streets.

In a good news/bad news scenario, Eidos and Warner Bros. released a new video showcasing Batman’s ‘freeflow combat’ to ease the pain and/or whet the appetite even further.  We have to be frank for a minute, the bad news totally overshadow the good news.

“But Frank,” you say “the video looks awesome.  What could be wrong with the game?”  First let us be PS3 Attitude again, second we have no clue.  It may be as simple as a marketing strategy, June is a busy month. Red Faction: Guerilla, Virtua Tennis 2009, Prototype, and Guitar Hero: Smash Hits drop on the first half of June.

The second half of gets even more stacked with Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 10, Ghostbusters, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Overlord II, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood.  Batman: Arkham Asylum would have been right between Ghostbusters and Tranformers.

This humble staff writer and Batman fan was already waiting for six of June’s games besides Batman not to mention the back catalogue of great games to be played, right Brodiesan?  Eidos and Warner Bros. may see more room for Batman: Arkham Asylum in 2009’s Q3 release schedule, or even less of a competition in that timeframe.  What do you think, do you deem our hypothesis plausible or can you stamp a big ‘busted’ stamp with your own flawaless logic?
