To reflect that the game is releasing towards the end of the movie window we will be launching with an attractive RRP of 29.99 on both PS3 and Xbox 360 formats.
We then hope to see a peak in sales with the reinvigoration of Warner Bros’ marketing campaign around the launch of the movie on DVD and Blu-ray.”
