Sadly, the tiny print at the bottom of EVGA's site gives the bad news that the game is not included with this card. Even more puzzling is that other EVGA graphics cards without the Batman theme do come with the game.

Marketing fail.

They realize they put the graphic on the wrong side of the card right? In the case that graphic faces down, you won't be able to see it even if you have a window.

Though I guess it does make some sense to have a Batman Nvidia card, since its probably the only premier game coming out utilizing physX.

stm1185, the sticker is on the correct side for 1/2 of the cases out there. now cases have the power supply on the bottom and the case is basically flipped upside down.

The difference is this: one has a sticker, the other one does not...

The GPU and clock settings are identical to the regular superclocked edition by the same vendor

Benchmark complete

Nice to see of all games, they're using this to push the sale of the 580 GTX, seems like a massive over kill

$30 for a sticker that you won't be able to see when the card is plugged in.

Congrats, EVGA, you have just hit a new low. On the upside, you get a box with the same sticker stretched out over one of the faces.. you know.. just in case you wanted one.

Doesn't this game use nearly the same engine and graphics as the first Batman game?! Because aside from PhysX I maxed that game out on my old GTX260! Now I have SLi'ed two 460's and have no need for this...unless I somehow find another 500 to SLi these! :-) ...although without a hefty 2560x1600 monitor... OVERKILL!!!

lol maybe at 1280 x 720 resolution lol.

1920 x 1080, the very least i'd want is a 570 or 580 GTX. BF3 bearly gets 60FPS with a single 580 at 1080p.

Then if you want to play at 2560 x 1600 or 5760 x 1200 or in stereoscopic 3d... then a 560ti would melt down and cry like a little school girl.

Serious set ups needs serious horse power.

lol 560ti... go play on an Xbox why don't ya? lol.

That was possibly one of the most ignorant things I have ever heard! Look at the charts for cryin out loud!!! You're looking at Ultra quality on BF3 which is a CRAZY graphical setting! Most games run like butter on a single 560ti with max setting at 1080P! Need proof?!?http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2011-gaming-graphics...
Plus, you can SLi them for a cheaper cost than the 580 which yields MORE power! Why don't you do some research on what you call "serious set ups"
before you go knocking solid hardware into the category of six year old consoles...

Not a fail - they give you a code to download it off Steam, similar to how the digital copies work on blu-ray movies.

Did anyone notice what they call "Superclocked"? They upped the default 772MHz Core to 797 and the 1544 MHz Shaders to 1594. That's disgraceful to be calling that a "Superclock". The GTX 560Ti Superclock (Gigabyte) actually has a huge performance boost (like 15%).

his thing is barely 3% above reference--lots of OEMs sell GTX 580's clocked 3% higher and don't even put an "OC" on it. EVGA...I'm very disappointed in you.

As everyone else said, this is a marketing fail.
Seems like this one's got just the same NVIDIA type casing, only with a Batman Arkham City sticker on it. And why did they up $30 for that? It isn't 'superclocked' as well..
