Default Pictures and Final Details of Batman Arkham Asylum.



I've been reading a lot of SpeedHunter's lately, also Kotaku has quickly become my favorite resource for gaming news. I really like the photo-blog style of Speed Hunters and the down to earth commentary on Kotaku. With that in mind I decided to add a little more flare here and there to the photos for this release and I've added a bit of personal commentary.

I'd appreciate some feedback as to whether this is something you'd like to see more of in the future or if you'd prefer the more no-nonsense approach that I've taken in the past.

It's great to have a little commentary with the pictures. Helps with deciding if the stuff is worth it or not. You should keep it up in my opinion.

P.S. The EU edition of the Collector's Edition is drastically different. No fancy bat-shaped box, the journal isn't leather-bound, no stickers and no box around the digipack. >

Makes you really wonder why they change it so much? Especially when other LE's and CE's are virtually identical for all regions. I really can't see the point in making one regional edition different from the other, unless there's some kind of exclusivity deal going on which means they can't be identically packaged

Take the Street Fighter IV box set for example - American's get one figure depending on which console they buy it for, but here in the UK we get both figures regardless of which platform. Petty differences

Yeah, what's with that? Take Assassin's Creed 2 for example. Master Assassin, White and Black Edition? It's kinda turning into discrimination between gamers.

I think it's actually worse with Batman: Arkham Asylum. It's essentially the same Collector's Edition as in the US, but just a lot less work put into it.
