The lights are on
Yesterday it was confirmed Batman: Arkham City requires players to input a code that comes with each new copy of the game in order to play the Catwoman sections. A report from Kotaku today, however, suggests GameStop is giving that code away for free to used buyers as well.
An purported internal e-mail says, “Customers who purchases a new or pre-owned copy of Batman: Arkham City will receive the Catwoman Bundle DLC.” It notes the code will be printed on the back of the receipt
A similar situation happened with Mortal Kombat, with Warner Bros. allowing GameStop to give online codes away for free to pre-owned customers of the game.
GameStop has not returned requests for comment at this time. We’ll update this story once we hear back.
Update: "Customers who purchase a new or pre-owned copy of Batman: Arkham City will receive the Catwoman Bundle DLC," a GameStop representative told us in an e-mail.

Well that's pretty decent of them, at least that will help out the people that hold off for used copies of games.
Interesting, I guess this is gamestops response to the used game sales strategy. If it benefits us, then great!
Sometimes Gamestop just surprises the heck out of me with something like this.
Thats pretty cool. If I am not able to get it right away (I'll be depressed) I'll still be able to get the full game experience when I buy it used. Awesome.
good for them!
