    They have pulled it from shelves as well, or so I read.

    I got a refund through Steam the same evening it was released. A lot of people finding out how painless the new Steam refund process is... :p

    I saw that it was a console developer that did the port to PC. Was this their first port? I'm still like 2 Batman games behind. I really enjoyed the first one. Bought the others, but just have to get to them... eventually.

    Steam didn't pull the game, WB did.

    They ported Infinite and Arrkham Origins.

    Warner Brothers recalled the game. Watch TotalBiscuit's Port Report and Content Patch videos that were released today for the complete low-down on why the PC port is terrible and what's going on with the refund process. The game performs terribly, and SLI is completely broken. TB can barely manage 60 fps, and he's running about the most top-of-the-line PC hardware you can get right now.

    that should have been a sign ahead of time right there, origins not exactly the most stunning game of the bunch. Guess that was someone trying to slide a cash grab in between rocksteady's dev/release cycles. Didn't work too well really.

    Probably why they chose a bad porter for the game as well.

    I was on the fence about the steam option or xbox one. So glad I went for the xbox one version tbh.

    Sounds like I'll be returning to Arkham City for my Batman fix.

    Hopefully lessons will be learned from this. I'm sure the wrath of Steam Refunds have hurt WBs profits a tiny bit.

    Dang I pulled the trigger on buying a GTX 970 because it was bundled with Arkham Knight and I already redeemed the coupon. Should have bought it when Witcher 3 was bundled.

    I won't know until July 1st. Since it is such a huge download and I'm almost at my data cap for Comcast.
