They should have done co-op and added Robin as the second player.

After all it is "Batman Arkham City" Not "Batman and Robin Arkham City". I personally rather them spend time on a game that will have co-op.

I'll definitely be buying this, because I KNOW this series is a good one to invest money in. No "try before buy" like everyone else preaches about as an excuse.

They need to make the story mode co-op, one person is batman and the other would be Robin.

Either the devs will put on some draconian DRM that kills your first born child if you register on more than one PC, or it'll be pirated to high heaven. It's a big, big, big risk shipping an SP only game on PC.
Multi-player is not the best anti-piracy measure possible. While it does deter some it will not work 100% of the time. FEAR had multi-player components and still got pirated. Apparently nobody played the multi-player portion of it that they released FEAR Combat allowing people to play it freely so the studio can get some exposure.

But sometimes a multi-player portion of the game just sucks so badly no matter how much you want it to be an anti-piracy measure it will just not work. The multi-player option would have to offer something extraordinary for it to be worthwhile purchasing the game. Otherwise people will just pirate the game for the single player aspect of it.

I have Arkham Asylum and it didn't have any multi-player, I won't be missing anything if they don't put multi-player features in Arkham City. But you have to look at it this way also, if the DEVS don't put enough work into multi-player features it wouldn't be worthwhile even considering it. They would have to come up with something really good for it to be worth the time investing in a multi-player feature.

A multi-player feature would be nice to have but it's not needed to finish the core part of the game. I would much rather have them put a good amount of effort in the multi-player features if they want to include it then half-ass it and release something mediocre. The time wasted for the multi-player could have been used to improve the core portion of the game further.

The first one sold quite well IIRC. Don't know why this would be different.

Really don't see a point in multiplayer in here-I mean some games JUST don't need multiplayer like GoW and such

Don't see coop here anyways: Dunno maybe they will reinact Batman:Hush
