Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Edition
THE JOYSTICK IS AMAZING
THIS GAME IS EPIC I RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERY ONE THINKING ABOUT BUYING IT I SAY AGAIN EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!
Gimme Gimme Gimme!
Just what I wanted! I have been looking for a fight stick for a while for this game and most run at about $100 so this is a bundle from the gods. The game and extra DLC included makes this a must own if you want a fight stick. Plus I was going to get the game anyway so this got me super excited.
True Arcade Experience.
There seems to be some slight confusion between the offerings from Injustice: Gods Among Us "Battle Edition" & the "Collector's Edition" so here's the simplified information.
Pre-ordering Injustice: Gods Among Us (any edition, be it regular, battle or collector, for only Xbox 360 & PS3) will give you the Red Son pack DLC.
The Battle Edition, for which this preview is written, offers the Injustice game, 3 DLC skins from DC Comics "New 52" line and an Injustice themed fightstick. I cannot speak about the quality or feel about the fightstick just yet, but compared to pricing from similar fightsticks from other games (e.g. Street Fighter, Tekken, BlazBlue) this Battle edition has quite the value. Also take into consideration this is a fighting type genre so utilizing a fightstick should serve the owner well, not only from a collectible standpoint, but also from a gameplay perspective.
The Collector's Edition offers the Injustice game, the same 3 DLC skins as the Battle Editions, special edition DC Comics book as well as a digital download for the movie Justice League: Doom and a 13" highly detailed statue. This edition has a great selection of goodies but ultimately will not complement gameplay as well as the Battle Edition with it's fightstick.
I'd strongly advise those who seek to fully learn and experience the ins & outs of this fighting game genre to invest in the Battle Edition since the fightstick is not only a great tool but also more fun to use over a traditional controller (trust me, your fingers will thank you for it). It's also compatible with other fighting/arcade games should you purchase any in the future!
This game is amazing I have only played the Demo but the characters flow with combos beautifully. I expected 100% from this game and its what im getting. Check out my combo tutorials if you don't believe me. Youtube/ListenToTheSWOOSH
Need more specs on the controler
The Mortal Kombat fight stick was well crafted with a long cord and genuine arcade parts. I see this also has a bat type joystick with the buttons in a street fighter layout. Is it the same type parts? If I knew what was in the box, I'd have this in the shopping cart, so my kids don't yell at me for having a better controller.
Clearing up some confusion.
Being a GameStop employee I've had a lot of people come in and ask a lot of questions about the differences between the "Battle Edition" and the "Collectors Edition." You will still get the Red Son skin pack if you pre-order the "Battle Edition" it is the GameStop pre-order bonus so you don't have to worry about that. The battle edition comes with the fight stick which will light up and is like having an arcade stick in your home. The collectors on the other hand comes with the Wonder Woman/Batman statue which if I remember correctly is around 7'' tall. The $50 price difference reflects the content included which each edition. The fight pad is a higher end product so you can expect it to be a little more expensive but it will be worth it in the end if you prefer playing fighting games like you would in an arcade setting. The statue on the other hand is for display purposes and isn't as expensive to produce but makes a great shelf warmer.
Why would we want this?
This is dumb. We pay an extra 50 bucks to get less items. What sense is that? The battle edition just comes with a little fight stick supposedly a controller and a few dlc skins from the comics. But the collectors edition, at 50 dollars less comes with that red son pack, also different skins for characters, an awesome 13 inch statue, some dc collectibles, the collectors edition of a new dc comic series, wonder womans lasso of truth, a download of a dc movie, and the SAME EXACT SKINS! There is no comparison anyone who pays another 50 bucks for that stick obviously is just attracted to expensive, fancy things
