PSA: Deus Ex AE Soundtrack for PS3 Requires Computer with Blu-ray Drive

Thinking of picking up the Augmented Edition of Deus Ex: Human Revolution on the PlayStation 3? Here’s a fun fact. The bonus “DVD” that’s included, despite having “DVD” printed on the disc itself (and the back of the box), is actually a Blu-ray disc.

“But my PS3 is a Blu-ray player! What’s the big deal?” you might ask. You may be annoyed to find out that while you can access the videos included using your PS3, the soundtrack will not work. You can attempt to select it from your PS3, but it will promptly tell you to put the Blu-ray disc in your computer to retrieve the files.

Rip it on your PS3 then transfer it to memory stick or drive... Problem solved.

Somebody didn't quite read the details did they? YOU CAN'T!

Yup. The guy who supposedly mastered it as a DVD says they are just MP3 files and should play in your PC. Now he's looking into it. Probably a pressing mix up, especially if the disc says DVD and it's a Bluray.

"Originally Posted by jaycw2309 - The bonus disc is actually a dvd, not a bluray (well i mastered it as a dvd).. you can put this into your pc fine.. the soundtrack is MP3 files so you can put them onto your ipod etc"

The actual disc art says nothing to its format, but in investigating the actual data surface, it's apparent it's a Blu-Ray.

The fine print on the disc actually says DVD...

Well if I did pick up the augmented version I wouldnt have an issue. I have a Blu Ray drive in my laptop and desktop. But for the majority who don't have that option I can see why this would suck.

I too have a laptop with a Blu-ray drive and the Bonus disc obviously worked, but that's not because it's a Blu-ray disc, because it isn't.

I just tried my Bonus disc (which is labelled as a DVD-ROM) on another laptop with a DVD-drive and on my DVD player. Both worked.

I could access the soundtrack and everything.

Well that blows...I have a friend with a BD drive.

Oh well, torrents to the rescue.
