EIDOS have announced that the Bat-PC release of the much-wanted Batman: Arkham Asylum has been delayed until the 15th/18th (US/EU respectively) of September. No real Bat-reason has been given for the Bat-delay, although the cynic in me says its the old ‘PC piracy cannibalises console sales’ spiele.
The announcement has been softened somewhat by the revelation that the game fully supports PhysX on newer Nvidia hardware (8800 cards upwards, as usual) and the release of (*shock*) a demo for all release formats, including the PC.
There are also a metric tonne of Bat-trailers and Bat-making-ofs after the Bat-cut.

As mentioned above, Batman: Arkham Asylum is due later this month on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 (the latter featuring exclusive Joker levels out of the box) whilst the PC release follows mid-September, featuring Nvidia’s PhysX.
