Other than that, I don't think it makes sense to get a beat-em-up game on the PC based on the argument that it controls better with a keyboard and mouse. Because it just doesn't, IMO. The same way that some people prefer FPS games on the PC for more accurate controls, but that actually makes sense.

Oh come on mate... I own a gaming PC as well. I still play games on it. And there's no thread for Batman in the console section...

And mailman2, there's a difference to being objective on game versions all around and being a PC fanboy to the level of Hell_of_Doom's obsession with Nvidia... I don't go around declaring the supposed "superiority" of consoles like you blatantly do about the PC...

Thanks for proving my point. I never declared superiority for any type of platform.

ok? So what? I've played many of the same games on my 360 that I have on PC - the PC is far superior. I don't need your approval or confirmation. Games on my 360 dont look nearly as good, the slow downs suck... I mean cmon its only running @ 30 FPS and even that is a struggle for a 360 in some games - sad sad fact.

I think your going just a weeee bit to far with this statement.

On the other hand, it's quite obvious the PC will be getting the better version. Graphics will be equal or definitely better if you increase the resolution and apply AA/AF. PhysX support will be present though its not really gameplay enhancing.
I don't recall anyone saying mouse and keyboard were superior for this game... I recall Mr. Hunt saying the PS3 version was better and one reason for that was the controller, which is just a stupid comment, so I told him I can of course use a 360 controller in Batman if I so choose. If someone said a mouse and keyboard is better, I missed it.

Though I will say that I prefer mouse camera control so much I usually use mouse and keyboard even in a game like this. I used mouse and keyboard for Assassin's Creed and Tomb Raider, for example. Being able to whip that camera around quickly to where I want at a second's notice is quite nice, and solves the camera problems with a lot of these games.

I had said the mouse and keyboard was superior in this game. I played the demo on both the 360 and PC and after using each control method felt the mouse and keyboard to be a much more natural fit and easier to use.

Well given my time with similar games and the fact I didn't even think about plugging my controller in when I played the demo, I would probably agree.

I recognize a lot of people will play it with a controller though... and they can on PC! Wow!
