E3 2009: 'Batman: Arkham Asylum' Plays a Mean Joke(r)!


Oh, how the tables have turned!  The Xbox 360, longtime home for exclusive DLC (GTA4: The Lost and the Damned, three add-ons for Fallout 3) will be feeling rather straight-laced when Batman: Arkham Asylum finally drops at the end of summer…without the playable Joker that the Playstation 3 will get!  More info and video after the jump!

While the extent of the content that won't be available is unclear, one thing is...there’s something rather enticing about the prospect of filling the psychotic spats of the Clown Prince of Crime, who brings a full bag of tricks along with him, including a pair of X-ray specs and his trademark hand buzzer. I give the developers credit for giving what looks to be a pretty accurate Joker experience without just making it a simple model overlay. More at Now, if you’ll pardon me, I have to glower at my Xbox.

Batman: Arkham Asylum is due out “end of summer” for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
