Unsurprisingly, the news of paying $10 extra for Catwoman after buying a used copy of Batman: Arkham City incited a firestorm of negative feedback .
But your friendly neighborhood GameStop retailer has taken strides to douse the flames. According to an anonymous tipster , the retailer will hand out a Catwoman code to anyone who picks up a used copy of the new Batman .
This doesn't mean Warner Bros. is backing down; new copies will include the code for the extra Catwoman content but pre-owned copies won't. GameStop will just toss in the code (obviously with the permission of the publisher), so you won't have to pay $10 to play as the leather-clad vixen. If you remember, GameStop and Warner Bros. did something similar for Mortal Kombat ; the retailer printed out online passes for used copies.
Okay, feel better now? Where else would you buy used games, anyway?
