Batman: Arkham City Avatar items now on Xbox Live Marketplace

For years you’ve been doing your best to turn your 360 Avatar into Batman or the Joker. Still, despite your hard work it just didn’t look real enough, and you had to admit defeat. Now, with days to go before the retail release of Batman: Arkham City, a bunch of Avatar clothing and other bric-a-brac is available on Xbox Live that lets you become the Caped Crusader and some of his crew… for a price.

Let’s get the most important ones out of the way, the full body costumes. Costing 400 MS Points ($5.00) each you can now outfit yourself as Batman, Robin, Joker, Catwoman, or Harley Quinn. However, these are gender specific, meaning we can’t live our secret dream of dressing as Joker’s femme fatale sidekick. Sigh…

If you want to look a little more casual, there’s the set of t-shirts that are each 80 MS Points ($1.00). Fortunately the Robin, Batman, Nightwing, Riddler, and Arkham City shirts were made with equality in mind, as they exist for men and women.

Lastly there are a slew of facial garments and props to pick up. They range from Riddler’s snappy hat (240 MS Points) to Two Face’s coin (240 again) to an honest to goodness Batarang (320). You can check out all 25 items for sale here.So if you want to impress all your friends on Live, or just like spending money on extras for heavily hyped games, your prayers have been answered.

    I SO wish my account didn't think that, even though I live in England, and set up my XBL account in England, it's Australian. I would buy the SH*T outta that Nightwing T-shirt. In fact, I'm TRYING to find one identical to that IRL, but I can't find one ANYWHERE... (Subtle hint, any help would be appreciated)

    Not quite but close,

    That's the only one I've been able to find, but I want one with the full shoulder-to-shoulder line symbol. :/ Might have to see if I can get one made special somewhere

    Ah, well I have to agree the full shoulder-to-shoulder does look cooler. Cafe Press?

    Arkham city is gonna end up costing me a lot. 25-odd bucks for the comics, 68$ for the game, plus whatever DLC they decide to churn out, and now this

    I got the Batman costume and there's a glitch in between his knees when he moves.

    Makes me wish I had Live but wish even more for that riddler shirt to be real.

    The Riddler shirt IS real and I own it. I got it at PAX prime this year for preordering the game on amazon. Which I then promptly canceled, not because I don't want the game, the contrary I justthink that it is BS that you have to spend 65$+ to get the shirt. Regardless the shirt is awesome, but its black on green, not white on green.

    I might buy all of it.
