The guys at Bluemouth Interactive have announced that they will distribute the Batarang Controllers that will coincide with the release of Batman: Arkham City, the sequel to the 2009 hit Batman: Arkham Asylum. There will be two versions, one for the Playstation 3 and one for the Xbox 360. Both are licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive, publishers of the game. Batman fans will revel in the authenticity of the design of the Batarang, while gamers will appreciate the comfort and performance of these one-of-a-kind controllers.

Bluemouth also revealed the features of both controllers, listed below:

The Xbox 360 version also includes an Xbox Guide button, and a wired 10ft / 3m cable. The centre bat buttons (from left to right) are: back, LED colour select and start.

The wireless PS3 version also includes motion sensing technology, an internal rechargeable battery, a Batman-themed USB RF receiver and 6-foot USB charging cable. The four lights on the left side of the PS3 controller shows the remaining battery charge, the four lights on the right show which channel the controller is using. The bat buttons (from left to right) are: battery charge indicator on and off, select, home, start and LED colour select.

No pricing has been announced yet but expect both controllers to be in stores on October 19th, the release date for Batman: Arkham City.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
