Deus Ex: Human Revolution Wii-U Remake is a Missed Opportunity

GR - "Deus Ex: Human Revolution is getting an upgraded release—or "Director's Cut" on the Wii U, offering full support for the Wii U Gamepad, a reworking of the game's abysmal and widely criticized boss fights, and a whole lot more." (Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Wii U)

Umm title does not fit article.

If you don't read the entire article then, yes.

The header states it won't be on Wii U.
The article states it will only be on Wii U.

Hence the title not fitting the article.
USMC_POLICE  +   971d ago
No I read the entire article hence why I said title don't fit ARTICLE

He's right...this only being on the Wii U is stupid...I hope it comes to other consoles as well.

Port begging is sad.

Do you call it stupid when Sony gets a game that no one else gets?

This game is not exclusive to wii's just the updates to the game. I'm pretty sure this update will eventually come to all platforms. Look at Rayman legends :P

the boss battles werent that bad.
Jobesy  +   971d ago
Still haven't played this game yet, what was so bad about the boss battles?
stuntman_mike  +   971d ago
they were out of place to the rest of the game. where the game normally gave you many choices to tackle your missions they took it all away from the boss battles, and made it feel very stilted and archaic.

How is it a missed opportunity. Get the console and pick up the game. Play it as they wanted you to play it. They obviously had the opportunity to put it on any console and the devs themselves thought that WiiU + Deus Ex was a perfect match.

Problem solved.

I'm a little surprised if it does stay exclusive. I was pretty sure that square would want as much money as humanly possible by releasing on all platforms.
dungeonboss  +   971d ago
They already have as much money as they were going to make on the other consoles. How is releasing a free patch going to make them more money?

However, to incentivize Wii U owners into buying a two year old game, it only made sense to enhance it and fix up a few issues.
JakemanPS31994  +   971d ago
I was thinking more along the lines as making you pay for it by just rebranding it. Ala capcom

Wii U owners:
"That title should come to the Wii U.''

PCS360 owners: ''Lmao... There's no market for those games, what's the point!''

*A Game gets ported with specific features for the Wii U*

PCS360 owners: "... where's our version?''
SilentNegotiator  +   971d ago
I forgot that Squeenix was such a good judge. Clearly, if they brought a special edition to the Wii U, there is a massive market for it.

Jadedz  +   971d ago
Doesn't hurt to try, right?

Anyways, my point was that the ''hypocrisy factor'' is only geared toward Wii U owners whenever they want something ported (or launched) on the console.
SilentNegotiator  +   971d ago
What's hypocritical about it?

Saying that there's a weak market for something on Wii U and wanting the extra features on other systems aren't exactly colliding thoughts.

I'm annoyed that Terraria is getting (got?) a bunch of features on consoles that the PC version did not. I would argue that the stronger market for such a game type is on PC (plus, PC gamers already made it big). I don't think that's hypocritical at all.
Jadedz  +   971d ago

3rd party developers have shunned out Nintendo long enough. How do you know there isn't a market if they don't try? 3rd party titles bombed on the P(C)S360 also, so we need to establish the perspective of why certain titles fail, while others don't on specific platforms.

Why should SE bother bringing over these updates FOR FREE to other consoles? They already have your money and the complaints didn't seem that strong (unlike the Mass Effect 3 people).

They probably just figured, well, let's make a low risk Wii U game to test how well Eidos games are recieved. While we're at it, we might as well make a few updates so people are interested again. They have everything to gain by putting this version on Wii U, and they have zero to gain and a lot to lose by optimizing this update for last-gen consoles. Sales for the game aren't even calculated anymore on Xbox 360 or PS3, and if people do buy it, they're going to get it from the bargain bin.

Unless PS360 users want to pay $49.99 to own a second copy of the game, it really wouldn't be worth it, and judging from the comments, that isn't what people want. People want it for free.
Jadedz  +   971d ago
Well said
Ports aren't really expensive (according to Ubisoft - link at the bottom), so a couple of publishers don't mind porting titles to the Wii U (with updated features).

Do you have any better sources confirming that he said that? Wii U daily is the site that claimed that ZombiU and AC3 ran at 1080p, along with several other falsehoods to bolster the Wii U. WiiUDaily and NeoGaf seem to be the primary sources for the supposed quote.
