Sony really wants you to pre-order Batman: Arkham Knight from PSN (because, you know, they don’t have to share the cut with a retailer when a copy of a game is sold from their store). The pre-order bonus that it is offering is a free Batman: Arkham Knight theme for your PlayStation 4. Of course, to many, that might seem like poor compensation- why would a theme be enough incentive to commit to a digital copy of the game at all?
If you are asking that question, you have probably not seen the theme in question in person, and will likely change your tune when you do. As you can see in the video above, this is an amazing theme- actually, this is indisputably the best theme on the PlayStation 4 right now. Absolutely stunning, and fitting for its source material, this theme should be enough to pre-order the game off of PSN, assuming you don’t hold some sort of principled, fundamental opposition to digital games.
For those who do, I really hope Sony makes it available for purchase later down the line.
