It was revealed today that the Wii U version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut will be $50, while the game will retail for $30 on all other platforms. Many people were upset by this news, considering the game was originally supposed to be a Wii U exclusive.
A Square Enix representative got into contact with Kotaku and gave official reasoning for why the Wii U version is more expensive.
“This is the first time Deus Ex is available on the Wii U. We have an extensive feature set which makes full use of the Wii U GamePad, plus we were able to add exclusive features to the Wii U version which we think Nintendo fans will appreciate and truly immerse them into the world of Deus Ex like never before.”
It’s as I speculated in the original article, that Square Enix feels this version should cost more because this is the first time the game has been made available on a Nintendo console. Does this affect your purchasing decision at all? Let us know in the comments below.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut will be released on Wii U on October 22nd in North America and October 25th in Europe.
