Zotac Debuts Limited Edition Batman GPU, Joker Version Coming Soon?

Coming soon: HotHardware, Batman Edition! We kid, but really, what's going on with all the Batman-themed PC paraphernalia? Just a few days after MSI introduced what we thought would probably be the first and last Batman-related graphics card of all time, Zotac has risen from the ashes to prove us so-very-wrong.

In what can only be described as a massive marketing push for the Batman: Arkham Asylum video game, Zotac has also joined forces with the Dark Knight himself in order to product a limited edition GPU with Batman's blessing. The card is actually an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285, but only 900 of these super rare GPUs will be sold. Within the box (which features unique Batman-related artwork), you'll find the card itself and a coupon for a full copy of Batman: Arkham Asylum that can be redeemed at NVIDIA's nZone.

Of course, it'd be great to know where to find this card and how it'll cost considering that only the first 900 will get served, but alas, it looks as if you're on your own to find out those critical details.

I'm holding out until they release a Commissioner Gordon card.

Wait... I wouldn't legally be required to buy it just because I said that, right?

Heh! I thought this was a reprint from the last Batman-themed graphics card review.

I will however wait for the Hello Kitty-themed graphics card, which should be coming out any day now.

All of these themed graphics cards are stupid, because after they are installed in a system, You can't see the fan housing anyway. It is just a marketing ploy.

Ding ding ding!  This guy hit it on the nose.

There are a few cases... that people might drag to LAN parites... that could show off the card.  But, I don't think a general-production Batman card would be as great a showcase as a custom alternative.
