Wii U Version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut To Be More Expensive


According to a Square Enix representative, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut will not be a full retail price of 60 dollars. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game will be 29.99, while the Wii U version will be twenty dollars more expensive, 49.99. The game will feature completely fleshed out second screen functionality seen on the Wii U Gamepad, which will also become available through remote play for the PS3/PS Vita version and SmartGlass for the Xbox 360 version. This game will also feature new content that was not prepackaged with the original title. My assumption is that the price difference is due to the PS3 and Xbox 360 having a prior release of the original game.

Square Enix still has not given us a final release date for Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut. Aside from being released on the Wii U, PS3, and Xbox 360, this game will also be available for PC and Mac.

How do you guys feel about Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut? Will you pass on the game and stick to the original or do you feel as though the added features warrant a second purchase?

  • I haven’t played the PS3 version yet even though I own it but it looks nice enough of a game. I don’t think the Wii u verison merits a twenty dollar increase but with added feeatures maybe its reasonable enough. I wouldn’t buy it again though since the ps3 version i got was only in the 15-20 dollar range XD

  • I was thinking about getting it for 15 bucks on PS3 when I saw it in GameStop a few weeks ago, but I honestly wouldn’t mind getting the version with more content. We’ll see though. I’m not itching to get this or else I would have already done so. I don’t see very many people rushing out to buy this in general lol. Yeah, it is a bit odd that the Wii U version is a heftier price considering that all versions will perform the same way with the second screen implementation. My assuption is maybe Square Enix is throwing PS3 and Xbox 360 owners a bone since it’s technically still an old game that has been spruced up a bit.

  • I’ll get it. I played the original briefly, but I didn’t buy it. I’m happy to support developers who support platforms I use. I’d just as soon have them believe Wii U is viable, moving forward.

    It’s worth noting that second-screen play requires buying a second device for other platforms, which may also contribute to the lower price, because it makes for a different value proposition. So does the lesser performance of other consoles. As for the PC…they’re not getting PC gamers to pay that much for an update of an old game to which they already had access. It’s just not happening.

    And that’s the thing, really. The game is new to Nintendo-only gamers, so it gets (almost) a new game price.

  • Very true!
