Check it. GOTY Editon coming with 3D glasses, no other hardware required. I am sure it won't be as good as the expensive Nvidia 3D but I have read that it isn't bad. Also onlookers watching your game without glasses should get a fairly clear picture too.

Unclear if the PC version is getting the 3D too?

The 360 and PS3 versions were specifically mentioned while the PC version was not, so I would say that the PC version is most likely not getting it.

Can't visit that link at work, but I'm interested in that 3D version.

I heard the graphics for this game on PC are much better then the console version. Might sell my 360 copy and get it off steam when it's on sale next (I know I missed it a couple of days ago). I still play it now and then so it'd be worth it, this and GOW3 are my favorite games these past few years.

The graphics on PC look pretty comparable to the consoles but you also get PhysX which adds a lot to the details of your environments; Fog that reacts to you, tons of litter on the ground that rustles around and moves when you walk/fight around it, walls break apart and tiles fly off when things hit them, better cape flow etc... plus you get the added benefit of higher res. Consoles is all 720p. Great game to be sure though, I have thought about getting it again but for PS3 for the extra Joker content.

In the trailer video...

"Best action game" -Playboy.

Really? That's the best source you can find?

I didn't watch the video but that is truly funny. "But mom Playboy says it's the BEST ACTION GAME!" *mom looks worried/puzzled* "What kind of sick game is this?"

Game of the Year Edition 50% off (19.99US) at Steam until Thursday.

Save 50% on Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition on Steam

If you've been waiting to pick this one up, I think it's well worth $20.

That's funny, I have been waiting for a sick deal on PS3 so I can have it on that platform in addition to my PC copy.
