    Unlock Catwoman in Batman: Arkham City via Online Pass

    With Batman: Arkham City releasing in less than a week in North America, gamers who are looking to play as Catwoman can instantly unlock her via the online pass included at every new copy of the game.
    For those who will decide and pick the game up as used via Gamestop, Ebay or Amazon, they can pick up the online pass on the PlayStation Store or PlayStation Network for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points. Is Catwoman really necessary? According to a Warner Bros representative, “Playing as Catwoman is not required to complete the game”.
    Check back with us early next week for our coverage and review of Batman: Arkham City. Stay tuned!
    This is getting annoying, now to access all the content from a game we have to buy the game's online pass ? By the way Catwoman have 4 chapters in co-op I think exclusive just for her, any other info please post it. Discuss

    Can't say I am shocked, and this isn't like something that is coming out of nowhere. A lot of games come with DLC character, maps, weapons, arenas. This one is just the next in line to do it, and people are calling it an "online pass" for some unknown reason. Maybe they just like to use buzz words?

    Just get it new, enjoy it, and reward Rocksteady Studios for their kickass effort.

    It's not an online pass, it's bonus content. Seriously I don't get why people don't call it what it is, and again it's not like this is a new practice, dozens of other titles have been doing this for years.

    I wouldn't consider this an online pass but rather extra DLC that you get for buying the game new. Just be happy there's no trophies involving Catwoman.

    Call it DLC: Nobody says anything

    Call it ONLINE PASS: Everybody starts bitching.

    I read/heard somewhere that if you don't have catwoman the story changes?

    Online passes suck but they're fair. Renting games is really bootlegging them. I'm buying this new so it doesn't affect me. I gamefly so my ideas aren't biased.

    I don't see how renting a game equals to bootlegging. You are paying to rent a game that a company has paid for. Sure, things like this extra DLC is an incentive to buy the game new, but in no way are you bootlegging by renting a game.

    I pre ordered my copy, so hopefully this extra bit is thrown in there when I go get it.

    Oh yeah. But i think those are dlc trophies and not part of the main set of trophies.

    You're right, it's not similar to bootlegging in anyway, but the companies have the right to charge for content. If you're renting or buying a game used, the publisher sees no money from that rental or purchase whatsoever. Charging for an 'online pass' or to access DLC is the companies way of trying to regain lost capital.
    There is no excuse for buying pre-owned games these days. They are fuck all cheaper than brand new anyway. I see people that buy pre-owned as being just a little bit silly, I can pretty much guarantee I would have payed less for my new copy, save for collections editions.
    If you're going to be renting a game and are bitching about paying for online access or content, grow a fucking pair. You pay a few dollars for the privilege of playing a kick-ass videogame, show the developers some respect by seeing where they are coming from. If you enjoy the game, give them a tiny fraction of what they deserve back. If you don't enjoy it, you wouldn't be wanting more content regardless.
    I see Online Passes as win-win for gaming. Look at how many developers are shutting doors. We need to do as much as we can to support our favourite game-makers or else, who knows? They might be next.

    Can anyone confirm if the Catwoman code is redeemable as of now? It seems it is not yet redeemable as I entered the code into my PSN store, but no luck.

    I guess I will have to wait until Batman AC DLC comes out on the store first. ^^

    EDIT: I am using the R3 version (Asia) so I may have to wait until 21 Oct before I can redeem the Catwoman code.

    I can confirm that it's at least available in the US right now. Because I'm playing Catwoman combat challenges right now & have played her in the campaign also.
    On side note, her combat is fucking
