Despite encountering some problems, Batman: Arkham Asylum quickly became one of the best selling products of this year and it has all the chances to end at the top of the best selling list if gamers continue to purchase it as they did until it got released.
To be more specific, 2.5 million copies of Batman: Arkham Asylum were sold on all platforms since the game was launched, making this title one of the “must own” games of the year.
“Batman: Arkham Asylum is one of the stand-out games this year,” said Phil Rogers, CEO of Eidos. “I’ve been following the great reviews and consumer blogs and I’m delighted that gamers everywhere love playing this game as much as we do.”
“The tremendous critical and commercial success of Batman: Arkham Asylum sets a new benchmark for superhero games,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Rocksteady Studios created an excellent game and the sales numbers demonstrate how a powerful franchise fused with high-quality production resonates with consumers.”
Batman: Arkham Asylum has also won a Guinness World Records award of “Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever “ and it does manage to rise to all of today’s high standards. It’s nice to have such a game released from time to time, Eidos!
