Choose Spikes Or Spandex In The PS3 Batman: Arkham Origins

If you’re like me and own multiple consoles on which you play your games, you might sometimes encounter the occasional multiplatform title where you find yourself wondering which version to get. Sometimes one system will have better graphics, or maybe one has bonus features the other doesn’t. Well, in the case of the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins, Sony has snagged a pretty nifty exclusive bonus.

The PlayStation 3 version of the game will include two additional skins for the Dark Knight: Knightfall Batman and Classic TV Series Batman. The Knightfall Pack also includes three additional Combat Maps and two bonus Predator Maps.

The Knightfall costume is kind of awesome with its ’90s-style spikes and extraneous belt pouches (on the thigh?), but it’s the Classic TV Series Batman that gave me pause. The costume looks amazing, but as you’ll see in the trailer below, it doesn’t exactly fit in the grim and gritty world of the Arkham games. The Knightfall costume doesn’t look nearly as out of place. Although it did set me to dreaming of an awesome Classic TV Series Batman game where everything would be all colorful and pop art with fight scenes full of sound effects bursting out of the screen… Now that’s a Batman game I’d love to play!

    Is the Classic TV costums only for the PS3? Because I’m playing this on PC. I guess mods will come to the rescue if it is PS3 exclusive…

    Well, technically it’s exclusive content for the PS3, but I’m sure there’s a time limit that will eventually run out, leading it to be released as DLC for other platforms… :-)
