Okay I'll Admit It, This Batman: Arkham Origins Batarang Is Incredible

At Kotaku HQ we often receive press kits and these press kits are often packaged in interesting different ways in an effort to grab attention and, possibly, headlines. Today Warner Brothers sent one of those press kits. Usually I sort of push them aside and get on with my working day, but this one — for Batman: Arkham Origins — was just way, way too cool to ignore.

It came in this massive box...

Which I then opened.

A big bloody batarang. That's pretty cool I thought. I decided to set it up.

And that's when I turned the thing on — it plays the latest Arkham Origins trailer. Really loudly. Everyone in the office got a bit angry, so I turned it off.

These things must have cost a fortune to make and mail out. I imagine a fair amount of these things landed on people's desks this morning. Usually new trailers come in an email, or on a USB stick. I can honestly say this is the first time I've had my video game assets delivered to me via Batarang. Pretty cool.

    If you feel the need to give it away as a Community Kudos prize, I'd reluctantly take it! :P

      I don't think it's good enough to be a Kudos prize.

      It should probably just be thrown in the trash. Preferably shortly before I get to Allure HQ and do my weekly rummage.

      Being so aweome, I doubt Mark would want to part with it. But if he did give it away, I think he should do it in true Batman style and pose as The Riddler, and give us a series of riddles to solve to win it. I wouldn't have a chance, but it would be a cool way to do it.

      So jealous Mark, that is Awesome Sauce.

        Mark's a notorious non-hoarder, so it's not that far-fetched an idea.

        But actually giving out prizes for CK? Well, that's a whole different situation...

        A battle of wits, eh. That could work!

        *throws sand in evimonkey's eyes, takes batarang and runs*

          Gah! I'll get you D.C., if it's the last thing I do!

    I just want to open the thing and see what else you could use it for.

    And that’s when I turned the thing on — it plays the latest Arkham Origins trailer. Really loudly. Everyone in the office got a bit angry, so I turned it off.

    I say screw what the rest of the office thinks. Because Batman.

      Knock knock
      whos there?
      Bec
      Bec who?
      BECAUSE IM BATMAN

    You know, after that piece of junk they shipped with Arkham Asylum, this kind of annoys me...

    When I first saw it I thought it was a custom Vita, lol.

    Don't you have to give those back to the Publisher usually? Because you don't find as many press kits on eBay as you think you should! :L
