See More of Batman Arkham Asylum’s PS3-exclusives Tonight

76 3

The calendar may still read “August,” but I think this is the week that the summertime gaming lull is officially dead and buried. And it’s pretty clear what the biggest game is this week: Batman: Arkham Asylum. The game isn’t just racking up some really rave reviews, it also comes packing some compelling exclusives for PlayStation 3 owners, like the downloadable Joker Challenge Levels (available – for free, no less – on the PlayStation Store right NOW), and a special Batcave Outpost Personal Space for PlayStation Home which unlocks with the game disc.

For those who can’t wait until tomorrow, you can learn more about these exclusives tonight on Gametrailers TV, as well as more on the combat system, musical score, and Invisible Predator mode. Also, they interview the man who played Cocknocker in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Apparently he has something to do with the game :-)

You can catch this special on Spike TV tonight at midnight (Eastern and Pacific), because host Geoff Keighley – like Batman – is a night owl. (Not Nite Owl, that’s something entirely different. Mostly.)

In the meantime, try out the demo on the PlayStation Store – it definitely got my attention!

  • A hail the Dark Knight!?

  • Nice exclusive content, I can’t wait.

  • I would watch it but Level-5 seems to be having a conference at 9:15pm PST. I’m really interested in the Batman game though (plus this show also comes on at a really bad time since a lot of people will have left before the show starts to pick up their copy for the midnight release and I am sure they would rather be playing than watching this).

  • Jeff, you’re officially my favorite Sony employee EVER. Kevin Smith is legion in my parts.

  • Very cool! I can’t wait to play the game.

  • I am all over picking up the new Batman. I love how hard you guys have Batman hitting his foes. It made me want to see the Batman from this game in Round 4 vs Tyson.

    Anyway, picking this and Dissidia up tonight at midnight.

  • game looks awesome! not bad for 59.99 price tag, especially if you get it at toys r us. u get a $30 gift card along with it!

  • I was going to wait awhile before purchasing, but the demo and the recently revealed Launc h Trailer pushed me over the Batcave. Def. a 2009 must have. Up there with Ratchet and Clank Future A Crank in Time, Uncharted 2 Among Theieves and my Assassin Creed II Future purchases! Great Job Rocksteady! Can you guys make an excellent Spiderman game?! :D

  • I’ve been looking forward to this one for a long time. It should definitely hold me over until Uncharted 2 and the new Ratchet.

  • Yeah, this game is a first day purchase. I may go up to Wal-Mart tonight and see if they’re selling it yet.

  • Hmm Ill wait and see first. I don’t do those Day 1 buys anymore because price drops are pretty quick lately :|.

    But if it’s really really good, I will try it out. (Hopefully 25+ gameplay hours)

  • Just got home form picking up my Batman Arkham Asylum Collector’s Edition (http://twitpic.com/f6w8l) and I can’t download the GameStop pre-order DLC. Do I have to wait until tomorrow or something?

  • i picked up batman arkum asylum special edition & the redeem code does not work ,checked it & tried it several times what the F!!!!????!!!!

  • thanks gamestop you’ve screwed me & my buddy both our reddem codes don’t work for batman

  • does anyone know how to get a new redeem codes from ps3 if they don’t work?

  • Sadly, I’ve never had any luck with GameStop and their promos.. and the best response I’ve ever gotten was, “sorry”, so ever since, I buy based on what’s in the box when I deal with them. sorry mate.

  • All the problems I’ve had in the past appeared to just be “too early.” I entered the code before they were activated. So I just had to wait and they started to work.

    Once or twice their redeem codes required you to go to a site to enter in the code to then get an email. This one doesn’t mention that.

  • Just got the game today and I love it. Ifeel like I’m the batman excellent game thusfar. Being playiny it for 7 hours straight. Love the bosses. Must own and have as a playstation collectible..

  • yeah bat man game to date thats for damn sure… love the riddler’s riddles joker looks insane….playing on hard is a tuff thing but im loving every moment

  • FWIW, I just beat Batman: AA last night. I would put it in my top 10 games ever… and I’m not exaggerating.

    They did an absolutely fantastic job.

  • Mark Hamill interview, great add. Needed to be longer though. Hopefully more coming??

  • Jeff,

    Here’s an idea!

    Can PlayStation Home sponsor a Fat/Slim day on Sept. 1st where users change their character to be Fat or Slim to represent which PS3 they now use?

    I think it would be fun!

  • Sorry meant to post that on the PS3 Slim announcement from the other day. I posted it there just now.

  • this game is going to be awsome i am getting it for playstaion 3

  • Is there anyway to see this special now that it’s already aired? I didn’t get a chance to see it.

  • Just wanted to put my 2 cents in. Beat it last night in about 6 hrs….thought it was a little short But awesome visuals and thinking about beating it again….enjoy all

  • Hey jeff when are do another podcast beyond man the one you were in was cool
