If you're planning on playing Batman: Arkham City on the PC, then news of its delay would have been disheartening and probably not that big a surprise. At least, like Assassin's Creed: Revelation on the PC, we'll be seeing Rocksteady's sequel this year, on November 18.
If you're keen to put some money down, then Steam has a tempting offer; those who already own Batman: Arkham Asylum or LEGO Batman (... okay?) will get a 20% discount on Arkham City. To sweeten the pot, both LEGO Batman and Arkham Asylumare reduced by 50% until Thursday evening.
I like the idea of offering you a discount for showing some loyalty to a franchise. GSC did something similar with the last S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game and it's something publishers should offer more frequently. Now if you don't mind, I'm off to save some money...
