It sounds like a really cool idea, but just too expensive for a lot of gamers who would have to purchase a VR headset and accessories if they didn't own them already which cost more than the console itself. Sefton has said that a single play through is no longer than 60 minutes, so you're looking at £100 - £200 per hour which I'm not prepared to pay. Also as it's exclusive to PlayStation, which means there will be a Rocksteady Arkham game that a lot of people won't be able to play, or own at least.

I hope it isn't canon.

In the chapter on display, Nightwing is dead, his body brutalized. Batman must use his ally's suit recorder to reconstruct the scene and figure out what happened.

Interesting, but... Xbox One player here.

Plus it's an October 2016 release. I'll be looking forward to Mafia III, Gears of War 4, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition during that time.

I'll definitely watch gameplay videos.

I was considering picking up a PS4 for a few of the different games, but if I do I won't pick up a PS VR. Thus far Arkham VR is the only interesting VR game to me, and 60 minutes doesn't warrant a $500 VR purchase.

And you believed it for a second?

Im actually dissapointed...because i simply dont care for VR at all.
I was hoping for a big title...still hoping for Warner to show something...maybe comic book related.

The idea is interesting however, seeing gotham not from behind batman but through his eyes, sounds cool...but not 400€ cool.

Not at all. But that's the thing, why lie in the first place?

Seriously Rocksteady, if you are not done why haven't you guys fixed the PC version, port the exclusive skins to all platforms (especially the Earth 2) and the DLC nightmare missions.
Where's the freaking support for your fanbase and more importantly, your buyers.

If this is the only thing Arkham related shown at E3 this year, I'm going to be severely disappointed.

I have a feeling the story is going to revolve around that one Wayne Manor Easter Egg. And I doubt the Night wing thing is real. Hopefully, anyway.

I'm so confused. This isn't like a game game, right?

I need shark repellant, asap, because the Arkham series has actually jumped the shark at this point. What the bloody hell even is this? Bad Rocksteady, bad!

They said it takes place in the Arkham universe, but Bruce is still alive in Wayne Manor as Batman, and Nightwing is dead. Wtf is happening.

Set before Arkham Asylum, perhaps?
