U.S. bonuses for this are weak at all stores. I like comic books, but I would lose interest in that quicker than extra skins.

Because they're expecting mega sales of this game. Why would companies want to give out tremendous bonuses to something that sells very fast?

Because they did for walmart. You get a free Batman: Arkham City GOTY edition

The Wal*Mart offer is for a digital version of Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY ed. just to let you know.

A lot of us anticipating this game have already play the crap out of AA... So I don't know why that is considered a good bonus. Is this a screw the fans of the original game kinda thing?

I contacted Walmart customer service about it and they indicated an actual physical disc of Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition is included in the case along with Arkham City.

This game should get $20 bonus not just 10, it will sale just as much copies as Gears of war 3 across all platforms.

If you refuse to buy this game without a $20 credit feel free to not buy this game.

i would much rather have a comic book than robin, and while im saying that, lets go riot the UK. they are getting the good stuff.

I'd rather have a physical copy of the comic book, not digital like Amazon is offering!

Upsyndrome says:
I'd rather have an option to play as Robin, or Nightwing...or Batwing, or Terry McGinnis. Or at least some more of the skins, or a challenge map.

From what I read it sounds like it is a print copy collection of the digital comic.

Why do they say digital then when you click on the offer? lol

It says:
"This Amazon exclusive comic compilation is a print only version of five 8-page digital-first interludes that exapand on the story included in the BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY miniseries."
Maybe I am unclear about what a "print only version" is.

Amazon gives out too many people almost have as much self entitlement that Steam users do. Getting $10 back just for preordering the game is AMAZING. Quit whining just cuz other games get $20. It's still a month from coming out. These pre order deals change all the time.

Don't care about money. I just want skins and challenges. Hard to understand?

Be grateful we're even getting $10 promo credit. I was interested in Dead Island and Resistance 3, but I didn't buy them because there was no credit. None for GoW Origins either.

Thinking about taking my online purchases elsewhere if Amazon keeps this up.

Owen says:
No, that's not hard to understand at all. That's just not the bonus amazon usually gives. They give u cash off next purchase, so you can use that cash to buy skins and challenge maps. Is that too hard for you to understand?

I wish they would give us the Batman Beyond skin or something. There's a ton of skins in the game already so I don't see why each store doesn't get one.
