Last week we asked for your opinion of the Catwoman pass, a piece of single player DLC that would only be available to first time buyers of Batman Arkham City. Since then it’s all gone a bit Pete Tong for Rocksteady and Warner Brothers with missing codes, corrupt data, stuttering sound and bodged Collectors Editions.
Karma, it appears, can be a bitch.
With nearly one thousand votes cast, the majority thought that Warner Brothers were being greedy. With no online content in Batman Arkham Asylum the pass has one function; to stop people trading the game and if they do, giving Warner Brothers a £7.99 slice of that pre-owned pie.
Fifteen percent of voters deemed Warner Brothers’ actions as perfectly acceptable and another ninteen percent were unimpressed with their actions of the publisher but could understand their reasons.
That means over a third of voters are siding with the publishers and that’s bound to spark more debate.
The big question is: What price will shops be selling pre-owned copies of Arkham City? Will it be almost full price next week or will the retailers take in to account that a percentage of the game is locked off?
