Damn it, Bruce. Stop being such a fancy-ass rich dude.

Our ol' buddy Mr Wayne, by virtue of his shitloads of cashtacular, gets the best of everything. Have you seen his freaking car? It's like mission control at NASA in there. Ours look like the old Plymouth Fury Pa had in 1958 in comparison.

Which is exactly why Batman: Arkham Knight won't be seen slumming it on consoles from 2005. What the hell would the Bat say if they tried to release it on 360 or PS3? Probably his trademark I'm Batman, even if that would mean eff all in this context. It's just how he rolls.

So, anywho, videogamer broke the news last week. Game Director Sefton Hill, quoth the report, said:
" see a lot of games that are cross-gen, and they feel a bit reined in because of that. Because we were able to make that decision quite early, we were able to be more ambitious with the design and make a real, genuine next-gen game."

Behind all of the PR prattle, this is quite a bummer right here. Still, if it's the price we have to pay for a real, free-roamy Gotham, so be it.
