Correct me if i am wrong:
All DLC will be included without any interenet connection required. (Harley Quinn Revenge too)
The game has a 3 months delay for Europe.
Robin will not be able to free-roam in Arkham City.
Harley's Hideout will be available to explore after we defeat her.
Catwoman does not require a network pass.
If i have bought the game already my savefiles will be available in the GOTY version.
All correct apart from:
We have never discussed or mentioned Harley's Hideout
Personally, I don't think any of the cover art's been on par with the one for Arkham Asylum. That was perfect.
It said: "Realistic Batman". Point made.
Arkham City's boxart looked too clean. Nothing going on. The cleanliness didn't really advertise what the game was all about, and certainly didn't match the game experience itself.
I didn't like the Robin edition boxart either. It just screamed "We have Robin!", but not successfully. There was no need to have Batman dangling behind him on a tightrope aside from showcasing the 3D, which wasn't really needed either. But that was GAME's marketing ploy, so I'll let that slide.
I don't like the GOTY boxart either. It looks like an attempt to cash in positive reviews to sell more copies. I looks like Batman's trying to claw his way out of the comments. It's the very show of bad advertising, filled with people screaming about how good the game is without explaining why it's so good.
If you're going for the clean look you should at least take a page out of James Dyson's book in advertising.
Better yet, revert to something closer to Arkham Asylum. I liked it, and so did many others. That's part of how this all started.
I liked the boxart for Arkham Asylum, even if it was because they didn't bother to change the already awesome boxart from the normal version.
The new GOTY game cover stinks of a cash-in. It reeks of a lack of confidence in their game. The need to hide their game and sell the words of others rather than the game itself. I don't like it, and so do many people.
