As if we needed more proof that superheroes in any medium other than their original one sell more units, BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY, the new video game featuring you-know-who has sold 4.6 million units in its first week, WB Interactive has announced.
That’s twice what BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM sold in the same period. It’s also the highest reviewed PS3™ and Xbox 360 game of 2011 thus far, with with average scores of 96 and 95 on Metacritic.
When you have numbers this awesome, there’s no reason to keep them secret.
Who’s been playing this game since it came out last week? Have any of you left the house since then?
