PlayStation throws out Bat-sale! 14.50 for Arkham Asylum, City and Origins

Honestly, there might not have been an excuse before today for not having played Batman Arkham Asylum (opens in new tab) or Arkham City (opens in new tab). Handy then that the EU PlayStation Store (opens in new tab)has swirled its brooding cape and reduced the prices of the Batman games to Steam Sale levels of ridiculousness.

If you’re looking to buy them stand alone then both Asylum and City have been reduced to £4. Yes, that’s Rocksteady’s Arkham Asylum for little more than the price of a (insert coffee chain here) latte. If you’ve yet to catch up on prequel Batman Arkham Origins (opens in new tab) then it’s £12.50. Plus, if you’re one of the lucky six people who hasn’t played any of them then the Arkham Collection includes all three and has 75% off to make it £14.50. Yes, that’s put a smile on that face.

Arkham Origins Blackgate (opens in new tab), the side-scrolling 2.5D PS Vita to console port is also on sale for £8 and there’s a slew of DLC on offer with Arkham City’s Harley Quinn’s Revenge available for £2. The full list of reductions is on the EU PlayStation Blog (opens in new tab). The reductions will be in place until the 29th of April, At the very least this might be able to tide you over until Batman Arkham Knight (opens in new tab), even if won't stave off the inevitable purchasing of that Arkham Knight PS4 (opens in new tab).
