The point is also that this game will be the best Batman game ever and will sell millions just like the last even more so. Im not preordering until I see good gameplay but if the game is as good as what I have so far read and seen then it is better to pre order now then next year.
I know my future brother in law is firmly on the pre-order bandwagon and I have just done my first ever one for Dragon Age 2. Absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED Arkham Asylum so this could well be my third ever pre-order as for #2, its going to have to be E.S.5:Skyrim
The reason for pre-orders? Um...peace of mind....you have it on pre-order, job done, forget about it and just wait for it to arrive. (Then find out on release day that you pre-ordered a whole year ago, with a now expired credit card number, and sit there fuming when you realise everyone else is playing it and you'll have to wait a few more days...as has happened to me on several occasions...LOL)
Mr P. Edwards said: "it will have to be one hell of an amazing game to even be a patch on asylum"
It happens....Uncharted to Uncharted 2, Ico to Shadow of the Colossus...unlike movies, game sequels fairly often better their forebears. I think this will be one such case. I certainly hope so anyway.
