arkhamdelay

Oh boy. It appears that the local release of Batman: Arkham Origins has been pushed back by a week. According to an e-mail from retailer Takealot, there’s a national delay on the game, and it’ll now be released locally on November 1.

The email simple reads:

“Our supplier informed us that there is a national street date move to 1st November.
Sorry about the delay.
Kind Regards
TAKEALOT”

We’ve tried contacting the local distributor for Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment to find out if the delay is confirmed, if it affects all editions and versions, and if true, why it’s been delayed.

We’ll let you know as soon as we can.

[Update]

We spoke to Ster-Kinekor – and the delay only affects the PC, Wii U and 3DS (Blackgate) versions of the game. PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers will still get the game on time. 

[Thanks to Uberutang for the tip]

          • Admiral Chief Ninja

            October 17, 2013 at 13:59

            For me, AMD (they do both)

          • TiMsTeR1033

            October 17, 2013 at 14:00

            6 core, 8core? I haven’t followed info on AMD for so long I dont even know what it compares with Intel wise.

          • Admiral Chief Ninja

            October 17, 2013 at 14:02

            6core is a much better CPU when compared to 8core as for bang for your buck.

            Whatever you chose, stick with the following rule:
            AMD+AMD
            or
            Intel+Nvidia

            Also with latest AMD you can increase clock speeds on the RAM and gain FPS, while Intel limits you.
