Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Batman: Arkham City have gone gold and will be available for mid-October release, while PC gamers are left to wait for a few more weeks. Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment confirmed the gold status of the game’s development earlier today – at least for the two consoles. Once again, – as it has always been – PC gamers are left to wait longer for another game release. Lately, The sequel to the illustrious and successful Batman: Arkham Asylum has drawn so much attention. With all the news regarding the games’ storyline, length of gameplay, and what made the first installment stand out – extravagant graphics.
Batman: Arkham City is set to be released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 18, while the PC version will get behind a few weeks and is projected to arrive by mid or late November. This is another snub on the PC from Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, after the $100 dollar Collector’s Edition Package in July was offered only to console versions. PC gamers have seen this coming for a while now; publishers seem to leave out the PC on new releases, updates, freebies, and other extra content. It probably has something to do with the wide distribution of pirated content on the PC, which has forced game publishers to concentrate more on consoles as a way to lure PC gamers into gaming consoles.
However, this may come as a hard knock for hardcore PC gamers, when game publishers are not treating the PC platform equally with the consoles. Especially with what WBIE has done – denying Collector Items to authentic PC version customers.
