No, sorry. I meant, to add the soundtrack to the Collector's Edition. Of course, it's too late. But, people were suggesting those items in the Collector's Edition, thought I'd add what I wanted.

Not at all, it's just that some members (I'm sure have been banned or issued an infraction) registered just to troll the forums.

So I've seen this on MTV Multiplayer, and just wondering two things. 1. Does anyone know, once the game has been released that like 2 to 5 months down the road we will be able to purchase our own straight jacket from Eidos, or Rockstaedy bc I would give all my money I had to get that.
2. I went to the Arkham security guard account info to update it, and is it possible to print out a Arkham Guard Card with the information you provided on the account editing part, because I saw the guys face on one of the cards from MTV Mulitplayer?
Thanks for anyone who can provide any information on this, and even if you can't thanks anyway, 11 more days till Collectors Edition whoo who!

You know once thing i'm worried about (not that'll affect my decision or anything),
Is that once places get their copies and such, multi consoles sites will downplay the Playstation3 version just is because of this Joker content. Maybe.
Yes, it can be played as a bad thing...

I can see them saying stuff like,
A) It's a great game, but the Joker packs are no loss really. Playstation 3 can keep 'em.
B) The Joker packs adds nothing really but if comes to 360, it'll be a must download.

Now, this is the same (in concept of replies) for Ghostbusters in AU.
Because it was delayed on the 360 because of sonys deal. People started to abuse Sony and downplay their attention for the game.
But once it was known it was region free.... oooh did they change their tune,lol
Hypocrites.
I'm a multi console owner, but i've seen alot of missed credit when due JUST because its on Playstation 3.
It doesn't matter if its posters, reviewers, previews and friends.

We know by the Demo, it's great.
We're all hoping, the full game will be awesome and epic.
We know that the game will be win,win.

The only thing left, will be the inevitable console wars from Sites and such.
Fair enough i suppose but, if there is gunna be any negative comments for 'content'. Then it should be for the lessor, not the greater.

They don't get to play the joker until the game comes out i believe.

Here's the moment the straight jackets arrived in the office. Someone had to try 'em out. Since the first one out of the box had my name on it, that sucker was me.

An arkham security guard uniform would be cool prize/merchandise as well as a joker suit. But I'm just dreaming.

why do reviewers get them instead of paying customers? trying to inflate the score?

i seriously doubt that promotional material inflates the score, most large marketing teams do that for creativity. they probably didn't include it for customers because it cost a lot for production, and it was only sent to reviewers for a fun little add-on. They sent promotional material to reviewers for kane and lynch, but that didn't "inflate the scores", did it?

even ubisoft sent promotional material for assassin's creed

@Cirap,

Probably a tiny bit, of influence.
Or maybe its just a form of hype excitement.
It comes down to who perceives it as what...

Do we care about Devs and such hyping up games for something we're craving for?
of course not.
Same principle. Just buttering us up.

Wow the employee who posted that must of had fun with it the video look soo funny. I think maybe if the production companies don't want ot market it to a large scale then a thrid party store should. Like have Eidos and Rocksteady give them the rights to customize the straight jacket with peoples names on it and such(what we all have seen on it). If this would really happen I believe that the product would be one of the most bought items in the last quarter of the year or, any quarter of the year it would come out in. Man I would love to have that, two friends of mine are writing a school play call Marvel vs DC and we have Arkham Asylum in it with the Joker wearing a straight jacket and this would be perfect hahaha. I love this item!

You could release this stuff to the public in the form of a CE for Batman:Arkham Asylum:Game of the year edition.Lord knows I'd buy it.

MayorJoker

I agree if it was the same amount for MW2 CE ($160) I too would buy it.
