"improved A.I.". So where are all of those people who said Wii U games would have worse A.I. compared to the 360 and PS3?
Neonridr  +   617d ago
well, until the game is actually reviewed, we won't know for sure how much the AI has actually been improved. Overall I am happy that the Wii U version seems to have been cleaned up quite a bit.

We will have to wait until the reviews come in to see how good of a version Straight Right did, but it sounds promising at least.

@Neon - Well yeah, but... "So where are all of those people who said Wii U games would have worse A.I. compared to the 360 and PS3?"

I would also like to know because I don't remember anyone ever saying this.

See, THAT is how you do a port.

Cool! So when's it coming out on the 360?
WiiUsauce  +   616d ago
Eidos Montreal have already confirmed this version of the game is staying on Wii U. plus the 360 could not handle this port. also confirmed.

I hope the improve features also make it over to the other platforms

Port begging straight from announcement. This generation of gamers saddens me.

Wait, you think that Eidos patching the previous versions of the game would be a bad thing?

They should do a Human Revolution Complete pack with all the DLC and updated boss fights in, couple that with a Steam sale and watch the money flow in. The Wii U can keep it's plastic pad.

Finally Nintendo owners getting sum Deus Ex love !

Soooo this basically confirms it.

Improved boss fights? I played this on PC originally, and they were SO lack luster. If this ends up delivering on this promise, i might give this a go, also, it's good that it includes the DLC.

Wii U owners should seriously consider buying this if they didn't already, it's one of my favorite games this Gen and one of the best Western RPG's ever.

$60 plz
I will gladly pay normal price for this on Wii U
lilbroRx  +   617d ago
Going by your avatar, I would doubt you have Wii U owners best interest in heart with that statement.

Nobody wants to pay full price for an old port.
PopRocks359  +   616d ago
It's not really a port so much as it is a rerelease though. This comes with all of the DLC, some new content, some upgrades and some tweaked graphics and features, similarly to Ninja Gaiden Razor's Edge.

At first I was cynical about this, but now I've warmed up to it. I've yet to check this game out, and if the Wii U version is supposed to be the definitive one, I may just check it out.

This is great news. Thing is by improved boss fights do they mean that you can tackle the boss fights without having to resort to violence every single time. As with any good Deus Ex game (or game of its kind) you should be able to tackle the fights as you see fit or at least give you more options than simply running and gunning.
lovegames718  +   617d ago
lol "yeah this is great news" lol %uck outta here with these old stale games ppl have already beat and are bing touted as "definitive versions" and end up performing worse on Wiiu. Boy these devs really think they have a pot of gold and some of you ppl buy into this bs.

Damn all system gets ports but the Wiiu is being treated like the go to system to milk older games. They add some time, some extra perks and half the time it performs worse on wiiu and then they hit you with the PR talk "This is the "definitive version"

Shame on the devs, but also shame on the consumers that fall for this bs tactic. Its superfluous at this point and what gamers need for Wiiu are some bad #ss new games!!!!
Neonridr  +   617d ago
well I have never played Deus Ex, so why shame on me for falling for this? If this version has the most content, better graphics, supposedly better AI and all the DLC included, why shouldn't I consider this version?
Amigaengine  +   616d ago
Agreed
RFornillos4  +   617d ago
if the improvements prove to be worthy improvements, i may just get it on Wii U... loved the PC version of this, although i do recognize the issues with AI and boss fights...
No_Pantaloons  +   617d ago
They should be pushing DX4 instead of wasting time with this. Even if it is a better version I'm not buying a wiiU and buying it again. A sequel could be multiplatform and interest everyone, instead of a niche product like this.

Excellent news, I love new game+ and skipped this on PC but will def get it for WiiU now.
CaptainSheep  +   617d ago
Nice!
New Game + excites me. I think all games with powers that can be upgraded should have a New Game + mode.
e-p-ayeaH  +   616d ago
that´s a given but many devs don't realize that
e-p-ayeaH  +   616d ago

here's a summary list of all the improvements, i found from these sites: http://mynintendonews.com/2...

* More than a port
* Eidos Montreal says it’s the “ultimate edition of the game”
* Eidos is working with Straight Right on the game
* Deus Ex’s boss battles were originally outsourced
* The three bosses have had their map layouts reworked to provide players with alternative potential strategies
* New hacking challenges are available to players who focus on hacking, and stealth options are available to those who focus on stealth
* Barrett’s map has been reworked to provide a second additional layer so Jensen can hide, forcing his foe to lose sight of him
* Energy system is more forgiving on Wii U
* Can have two energy cell recharge by default on all but the hardest difficulty
* Players can now use Jensen’s augmentation powers more freely
* Improved AI for enemies to include the tweaks made for The Missing Link downloadable expansion
* Enemy cone of vision has been retrofitted into the entire game for the Wii U version
* Missing Link DLC originally looked better than the main game since the developers were more comfortable with their tools when they came to create them
* Missing Link’s improved visuals have now been applied to Director’s Cut full game
* Includes better shaders and revamped lighting system
* New fog system that “makes the atmosphere really stand out”
* Choppy shadows are now smoothed
* Visual improvements not possible on the Xbox 360 since there’s not enough disc space available
* Anti-aliasing also wouldn’t work on the console but is in for Wii U
* GamePad used for new augmentation called Neural Hub
* The game’s Smart Vision augmentation, which allows players to see enemies through walls, was extended and fused with the GamePad, resulting in the Neural Hub
* Use the GamePad to see enemy health, armor type (heavy, medium, or light) and loot
* Can use the GamePad to navigate menus, display the map, augmentation system, inventory, etc.
* Swipe controls
* Grenade throwback: equip a proximity detector that alerts him to a nearby grenade
* If an enemy chucks a grenade at you, the GamePad will vibrate, and you can swipe the touch-screen to pick it up and lob it back
* Touch screen shows Jensen’s radar by default, which is a sort of hybrid between the main radar and the 2D map
* Can open the 2D map on the GamePad and use the stylus to write notes that will appear on the main radar screen
* Use the touch screen for the hacking mini-game
* Weapons that have a scope (ex: sniper rifle) will let you use your TV to center your target, then enter a precision mode using the touch-screen, which displays the cross-hair
* Around 8 hours of commentary from Eidos Montreal
Icons dotted around the world can activate this voice over, and you’re free to continue playing as you listen
