So batman is DC Universe's iron man now? isn't this getting to be a bit too insane? looks fun though.

I... WHY?! Why would you do this? AGAIN?! Exclusive playing as the Joker on PS3 was bad enough (although it was just some extra challenge maps). But making some Scarecrow missions exclusive? Arguably the best type of missions in the game? Grr...

Then again, they'll probably just turn out to be either playing as Scarecrow (which is cool, but not that cool) or Scarecrow themed challenge maps. (Which might be cool, or might not be. Imagine a predator map while affected by the fear toxin yourself! On the other hand, the Scarecrow combat challenge in Arkham Asylum is something that I wouldn't mind missing.)

If the PS4 turns out to have exclusive story-based Scarecrow missions though, I will not be happy. My intention is to get this on PC.

HOWEVER: I have to say, city navigation looks very cool, both in the batmobile and when gliding. As did that multi-person takedown.

Since Scarecrow will most likely be either a side or main antagonist in this I really hope they take a lesson from Arkahm Asylum and add in some horror elements to it. While I loved Arkham City I missed the creepy and scary parts from Arkham Asylum.

The game looks pretty far along as it is...really makes me wonder why they had to delay it to next year...

Arkham Knight has tanks? Remote controlled tanks? I know he's a new villain, but my first thought was "which Batman Villain has THOSE kinds of resources?" They're usually regular Joes pulling off bank heists, kidnappings, and holding the city ransom. I'll pick up a PS4 eventually. If some of the games shown at E3 live up to the promise, I may pick one up sooner than I planned (I was waiting for the next hardware iteration). I'll likely pick up a GOTY edition of this one though.

EXCLUSIVE PLATFORM DLC!!!.

It's totally not like another console didn't do this already =O.

Batman has had battle armour for years, it seems he's streamlined it though

I thought that.

Heres hoping if its story based, that these are only timed exclusives.

Graphics look good, but not as good as the last "gameplay" trailer i saw of Bats

Have a lack of interest in this game. Loved the first two. Origins just seemed to familiar and was nothing new. This new game, having the Batman mobile doesnt really sell it to me. Or are they going to make gliding round the city a complete pain?
