Warner Bros is planning to release more games based on DC properties following the critical and commercial success of both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City
Chatting in an interview with Canadian Business, the head of Warner Bros' new Montreal studio, Martin Carrier, said that the outfit is planning on releasing a variety of DC themed projects. He went on to explain that whatever the..
Rumours might be popping up in regards to Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 but, word coming out of CVG hints that the first game is due another dose of DLC
The site reports that they've got word of Rocksteady bulking up in order to develop a new downloadable expansion for the hit comic book game. CVG received a message asking if they "<span>want...
It's a Monday, it's a new week, and that can only mean one thing right, guys? It's time to sit back and hand-pick Playstation's creme de la creme
PushSquare's Playstation Pick Of The Week: Just Cause 2 [US/EU] What the demo lacked in control stability it more than made up for in just sheer breadth of content. So long as the game gives us freedom to actually play around with the mechanics (rather..
There's something a little iffy about Uncharted 2: Among Thieves' denial of Best Game during last night's video game BAFTAs
Despite beating everything to win four gongs at last night's awards show, Batman: Arkham Asylum managed to walk away with the Best Game gong — despite being beaten by Uncharted 2 in numerous other characters. Don't get us...
Guess what? It's the BAFTAs tomorrow night
And that means all the glamorous folks involved in putting together the games you loved last year will be heading to the red-carpet to (hopefully) collect a copious number of gongs. We've teamed up with VoucherCodes.co.uk to bring you our definitive list of predictions ahead of tomorrow's big event...
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was the big winner at the GDC awards last night, scooping a total of five gongs -- one for the coveted game of the year accolade
It won awards for Best Writing, Best Technology, Best Visual Arts and Best Audio, but Batman: Arkham Asylum stole the award for Best Design. thatgamecompany also won in the Best Downloadable Game...
Good grief Rocksteady
First you were an unknown, developing a game published by Eidos. Then all of a sudden you're winning awards and being bought by Warner Bros. Just shows what happens when your studio make an amazing game. That's right, newly crowned big boys Rocksteady have been bought by Warner Bros, and are currently hard at work on a sequel to Arkham Asylum. Rocksteady's games director..
Well whadda'ya'know? It's that time of the year again when all those good games from last year start getting repackaged and sold at full price in new, highly valued, Game Of The Year editions
Batman: Arkham Asylum is the first to be outed; with the BBFC holding a classification for a game of the year edition. Usually these packs include some package DLC, but outside of two free PSN downloads and..
It's time to get voting for Spike TV's annual VGA awards show
The nominees are out and the contenders for game of the year include Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The Playstation 3 exclusive will go up against Batman: Arkham Asylum, Left 4 Dead 2 and Modern Warfare 2. Naughty Dog are also up for the award of best studio, with Uncharted 2...
Hats off Eidos
Seriously, hats off. Not only did you and Rocksteady Studios deliver a fantastic game in Batman: Arkham Asylum, but your commitment to post release support has been admirable. Sure, everytime you let us know about two new maps that are launching on the PSN you keep your game in the press, but that's not the point. The point is,...
This what happens when you have a good franchise and use it to make an excellent game
Take note publishers who rush their developers to release sub-standard tie-ins — if you actually gave everyone involved time to release a fully fleshed out experience — well you might sell more copies. Like Batman: Arkham Asylum has, having been shipped 2.5million times. That's a lot of games folks! A lot of..
Need For Speed Shift has jumped straight to the number one spot of the British sales charts, with 52% of the sales attributed to the Playstation 3 version -- figures Sony must be pretty pleased with as they've watched their software share stakes grow over recent years
The Beatles: Rock Band surprisingly dropped down the charts from fourth to seventh; with newcomer WET debuting at number six. DiRT..
Have you already got your platinum for Batman: Arkham Asylum? Itching for more content? You are?
Already. Fine, Eidos have got you covered with a further two, free, challenge maps for the excellent super-hero game. The two new maps, launching this week, will focus on the Freeflow Combat and Invisible Predator aspects of Arkham Asylum's gameplay. The former map is entitled "Totally Insane"..
Excuse us while we pick up our jaw
We knew the contest between The Beatles: Rock Band and Guitar Hero 5 was going to be kinda tight but we totally misjudged this. Especially in The Beatles' homeland. Not only was the Fab Four's foray into video games stomped by Guitar Hero 5, but it was also pipped at the post by (the admittedly excellent) Colin McRae: DiRT 2 and weeks old Batman: Arkham Asylum..
Rocksteady's masterpiece Batman Arkham Asylum may go on to be many people's game of the year, but it all counts for nothing if it doesn't sell
Thankfully the title has topped the UK charts, offsetting Nintendo's Wii Sports Resort and resting a comfortable victor. The XBOX 360 version narrowly outsold the PS3 (with a 55% share) — we assume the exclusive Joker content on the PS3 version of the game..
When we told you Batman: Arkham Asylum was a bloody good video game, we meant it
But we never expected this. It's only just gone and won a Guinness World Record for being the "Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever"."We are so pleased to be awarding Batman: Arkham Asylum a Guinness World Record. It is a fantastic new game and due to the reaction of gaming experts we believe it..
Batman: Arkham Asylum is pretty rad
As you'll know if you live in the US, because you'll probably be playing right now. Even though we wrapped up our review of the game over the weekend, we're yet to put it down. The thought of extended DLC makes us really happy. The game has an infobar that scrolls with latest news from Eidos' server while you...

Batman: Arkham Asylum has a hard task to live up to
Hyped as the definitive super-hero game this generation early into its development, the game has always had a hard task ahead of it. With a number of delays to ensure quality behind it, Batman: Arkham Asylum is finally gearing up to release. Can it ever live up to the hype? From what we've played,...
A demo for one of the most hotly anticipated superhero games, Batman: Arkham Asylum, will hit the Playstation Network this Friday, 7th August
Strangely it won't come as a part of the usual Thursday update, presumably to keep all things fair between the various platforms the game is being released on (the XBOX 360's online marketplace gets updated on...
Just a quickie for our American readers, if you're thinking of pre-ordering Batman: Arkham Asylum, you might want to do it from GameStop
As a reward you'll get an "exclusive" challenge map (i.e. probably something that will be available as premium DLC in a few weeks) in the form of "Dem Bones" - a fight to the death between Batman and a bunch of, erm, skeletons. Word.
According to reports from a Batman: Arkham Asylum preview event, Rocksteady's Sefton Hill has confirmed that the playable Joker content for the game will be absolutely exclusive to the Playstation 3
I.e. it won't end up on the XBOX 360 at any point. We still remain sceptical. Exclusive is such an iffy word these days, but Sefton does cite a contract with Sony so perhaps that Joker content might..
The delayed Batman: Arkham Asylum will finally see release this August after a brief delayed hiatus
The game will hit North America on the 25th August and Europe on the 28th August. Don't forget, Playstation 3 owners will have access to a playable Joker.
We mentioned yesterday that Batman: Arkham Asylum may well be delayed
Well sorry Batfans but, we've just got word that the game is delayed. The game was originally intended for June, but now sits in a window somewhere "later in the year".Eidos Interactive and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment can today confirm that Batman: Arkham Asylum will be released at the end of summer 2009..
The above Arkham Asylum trailer debuts the type of combat players can expect from the upcoming Batman game, which we have to admit looks rather fun
Alas, reports from Kotaku claim we won't be enjoying it as soon as we had hoped. Arkham Asylum was originally set for release this June but "sources" claiming that's now become Q4 2009. We'll keep you posted.
There's a lot of buzz for Batman: Arkham Asylum right now and it's unsurprising
The game is shaping up really great, it's something we're certainly keeping a very close eye on. Speaking of close eyes, switched-on Playstation Home users have spotted a precarious ad in the service touting "Exclusive Joker Challenge Maps only on Playstation 3". It's unknown whether each system will get their..
This is Harley Quinn's exclusive reveal for upcoming Batman: Arkham Asylum
She looks pretty awesome if you ask us. However, even though we've been told these voice actors are from the original Animated Series - we don't like them. Particularly Batman. He sounds dumb. Game's looking brilliant though.
Is it me or does Batman: Arkham Asylum actually look like it's going to be bloody brilliant? This trailer further highlights that as it shows Bane getting particularly angry
It's a surprise we'd rather have encountered for ourselves while playing the game but, shrugs, companies seem to like spoiling their games via trailers these days. We're not too sure about Batman's voice actor though. Awaits a..
We've known about Batman: Arkham Asylum for a while
The game promises to be a gritty, dark adaptation of the Batman universe; something which hasn't come across in a Batman video game before. For what the trailer shows, we were massively impressed with the voice acting, character models and scripting. However, we're not so sure about the snippets of gameplay. The graphics look rough and the..
