For a few months now, retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop have listed pricing for Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut at $49.99 on Wii U and $29.99 on the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360.
it's like they don't want it to succeed. Didn't EA do the same thing to say that no one wanted their games on Wii U by having horrible deals, like Mass Effect Trilogy releasing at the same time on other consoles as Mass Effect 3 released on Wii U?
Well to be fair the Director Cut was made with the WiiU in mind. Why should the WiiU version be priced at $29.99? This case overall is entirely different than what happen with EA. 360 and PS3 audience isn't getting a complete edition of the Deus franchise, while WiiU is only getting a one Deus Ex game. 360 and PS3 audience members are repurchasing a game they brought two years ago while WiiU audience members are buying a game made with their console in mind.
that's far from an excuse it's their problem they release it twice it's the same version on all consoles why should Wii U owners pay more for the same crap and why does everyone keep thinking Wii U owners don't have other consoles it's just stupid
Well if some WiiU owners have other consoles then they can buy the game on the other console if they don't want to pay $50.
zeal0us: "Well if some WiiU owners have other consoles then they can buy the game on the other console if they don't want to pay $50." That' exactely the problem though. People won't want to spend an extra 20 dollars if they have a differen't console, which most do, and because of that Square Enix might pass this off as Wii U consumers not wanting to by their games in general. Thus ceasing development.
Well if you guys truly feel that way about WiiU version then take it up with SE or start petition. Honestly complaining about it on N4G isn't going change a thing.
They are taking it up with Square. Thats the entire point of the comment. What was the point of your argument?
Listen the devs clearly said the wiiu version goes beyond pc technically google it...
@lilbroRx Complaining about the WiiU version priced on N4G is not taking it up with SE. The only thing they have been doing is expressing opinion about the price of WiiU version on a site that's not related to SE. I highly doubt SE will come up here and or NintendoEverything and take their concerns to heart. If you want your concerns to be heard go to the SE forum/site, Deus EX HR Site/forum, make video, petition or send the appropriate groups an email voicing your concerns. I'm in no way saying they shouldn't post their opinions on N4G. To do so would beat the whole purpose of N4G. Which is to bring gamers together and let them voice their opinions about articles,reviews,opinion pieces or etc. What I'm saying(far as my third post goes) simply posting about your dislike on N4G or NE isn't enough. You need to go to source if you want your thoughts/opinions to be take into consideration.
You know what is taking it up with SE? Not buying the stupid thing and waiting for the price to be more fair. Which is exactly what I'm going to do. Square Enix can have my money when they A) stop sucking and B) price their games fairly across all platforms. I don't care if this version was tailored for Wii U, it has the same amount of raw content across all platforms. It is not fair at all to make people pay $20 more on gamepad features alone.
Just like Wii U has some games coming out with less content, but cost less on Wii U. Same goes here. the Wii U version is the "definitive" version. I will pick this up on. Wii U, because of what they have done with the gamepad it looks great too.
hahahahaha ohhh boy that was a good laugh... hahaha to think i even considered getting this game for the Wii U.
There's quiet a few improvements on the Wii U, graphics is one of them. I have this on PS3 and it's an amazing game.
I dunno why the price discrepancy though? I can only think of one reason. Since Nintendo or the developer felt that this game is pretty much a brand new game for the wii u they charge more. For the ps3 and Xbox 360 they assume most people would have already played it already. For those who were on the fence about buying it will now buy it at the lower price point with the benefits of the extra contents. Idk just a theory.
To be honest, no one at Square Enix knows what they're doing. They haven't been fiscally responsible for some time now.
All you wii u people should be happy you even get these games, they have to go out of their way just to custimize it for that stupid controller screen, so you better pay extra Put a screen on the controller....said no one ever....nintendo needs to stop And you nintendo fans are the worst...to cheap to buy a real console and to cheap to buy third party games...all you guys do is make excuses o this game is to expensive o this game is to cheap o this game doesnt have online even tho I bought a console with a terrible infrastructure. Look in the mirror...you are the problem...letting nintendo get away with a terrible network and store, a gimped storage....dont buy their stuff and they will have to change it...
God you're a sad excuse for a troll please go jerk on your ps4 or xbone you don't have yet and let real gamers discuss these issues
While I don't agree with everything he is saying, that however is far from trolling. Honestly telling him to go jerk off on his PS4 or X1 isn't making you look any better than he is.
what he's doing is trolling blaming the userbase for choices the company makes is trolling coming in an article to start discuss a whole other topic is trolling and the way he said it it's obviously trolling he wasn't trying to start a discussion he only tried to rile people up with his comment i see that as trolling
The funny thing is if they don't want to customize it they just have to make it off-TV Play like Super Mario Bros U. which probably isn't that difficult as it would just be sending the same signal to the Gamepad as the TV. Also Valve put a screen on their controller. I would say ALL fan groups are terrible. You act like one is worse than the other, however they all have blind chauvenism that's just limiting the overall enjoyment of the industry. Its perfectly fine to like a company for what they do, but if your going to start boycotting another company over it then its just pointless. Yes the Wii U does have some flaws, but if I was to focus on that, I wouldn't have anytime to play some great games. Honestly the PS4 and Xbox One will have flaws also, please don't deny it, but they'll still have some fun games also.
but a touchpad on your controller is way better right???
You know, sometimes it is really hard to not use bad language against such troll attempts. A game if it offers the same content, should be priced equally, what is so hard to understand about that? Does that matter, if they developed it for Wii U in mind? It doesnt, if the game happens to be multiplat afterall, since the new ideas went in all versions. And to call the Gamepad stupid just shows that you are not able to see the potential of this thing, maybe because you never tried, you saw it and as a good sony fan, hated it instantly. But I bet, if the PS Vita makes good use with the PS4, then it is a new innovation of Sony. OMG
thats kinda crazy considering I've seen DEHR on sale on various digital retailers at like 5 bucks...the stuff they added is pretty cool but doesn't warrant such a massive price on any platform. It shouldn't even be 30 bucks, they are repackaging already made stuff with minor enhancements at best. Its a great game don't get me wrong, but they are overcharging
Yeah I noticed also. This is of course bogus and yet another blow to WiiU owners. Thanks Deus Ex.
He never asked for this >=[
Purely my opinion, but the price variance is simply an indication of the different development costs between the systems. When DE first came out on PS3 and 360 it too was full price, reflecting the development cost of a new product and the standard pricing structure for video games. Over time that price went down to the point where I bought it for $10 for the 360. A ground up remake of the game for a new platform is going to cost more than adding a few levels and tweaks to an existing platform's game. Hence the two prices. Does it cost nearly twice as much? I haven't a clue, but I never expected the price of the game to be less than full price on the Wii u. I would, however, argue that $30 is a lot for what is essentially DLC and a patch. It will be interesting to see how well it sells on any system. Maybe I'll pick it up again when it's $10 on the PS3 or 360 or for $30 on the Wii u That's my 2 cents worth.
It's not a remake. It's a port, with a few minor enhancements added in. And that "new" version, with the enhancements included and everything (minus gamepad features) is coming out for PS3 and 360 as well, but $20 cheaper. Nope. The Wii U version is definitely overpriced compared to the other versions.
This isn't a ground up remake at all though. Its just a port with some added content, the exact same as the PS3/360. If this was a ground up remake, all of the textures would be higher res and the frame rate would also be higher.
If it is just a port, it still had to get made and that costs money. If it is just a straight port with no Wii u optimisations then things like frame rate will be negatively influenced. Yes, I'm looking at you Batman. So it is DE with a few enhancements and rebalancing on a new platform regardless. Which brings me to my point that it is also very expensive DLC for the existing platforms. By your logic, both are over-priced.
I hated this game! Only bought it because of the reviews, and its one of the only games this gen that i bought and didnt finish...shoot hack shoot hack hack hack...ZZZZZZ
Yeah I got it on the PC and after about 2 days I was done with it. I still have DEHR installed but not played it in almost two years. In my Opinion Deus Ex probably one of the most overrated series out there. Didn't like the first one, boring, the 2nd one was actually pretty good, completed about 80 percent before trading it in. And this last one, I lost motivation when I landed on the rooftop to clear a warehouse in Milwaukee.
No worries. It will be on sale for $19.99 when no one buys it on WiiU.
I don't understand... On the Amazon UK site the Wii U version is £1 CHEAPER than the 360 and PS3 versions.
If I can get the standard edition one PS3 for less than $9.00 I think I will pass
i dont care, ill still get it. yes im enabling SE by buying this for an extra $20 and normally stuff like this would piss me off based on principal alone, but whats $20 really??
Just for the sake of answering your question; $20 can get me another game. :P
To be the fair and sensible, the other versions are more expensive because of their requirements for the complete experience... http://news.softpedia.com/n...
