The rumours have finally been laid to rest, with Sony officially unveiling its new PlayStation 3 Slim at this month's GamesCom event in Cologne – and TechRadar is officially the first website to offer you the chance to WIN what is sure to be this year's must-have kit for Christmas.

That's right. The good folk over at Eidos have stumped up a PS3 Slim along with a copy of Batman: Arkham Asylum - one of the PS3's best games of the moment – for one lucky TechRadar reader to bag.

Batman: Arkham Asylum is being published in the UK by Eidos Interactive and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on behalf of the mighty DC Comics.

Developed by Rocksteady Studios Batman: Arkham Asylum lets the player assume the role of Batman as he delivers The Joker to Arkham Asylum. There, the imprisoned super-villains have set a trap and an immersive combat gaming experience unfolds.

With an original script penned by Emmy Award-winning Batman writer Paul Dini, the game brings the universe of DC Comics' detective to life and offers players the chance to battle Gotham's worst villains with Batman's physical and psychological strength in a superb story-driven game with stunning graphics.
