OXM UK: "Deus Ex: Human Revolution has landed in first place for the UK software sales week ending 27th August, selling just 26,000 short of Deus Ex: Invisible War's lifetime total."
Hoping to get the augmented edition 2day :)
Love this game. Interested to know how the PC version differs...
I've played both PC and 360, to be honest I prefer the 360 version (PS3 version is almost identical to 360 apart from different edge smoothing and colours) PC version looks a bit like a port if you know what i mean, places that should look dark look a bit too bright (and its not a simple case of adjusting brightness / contrast) but its not too bad overall. Played the PC version with all on max settings and DX11. Frame rate on PC obviously goes well above 60 while the consoles stay around 30. Looks like the radial menu is gone in the PC version, instead you get a hotbar at the bottom for quick selecting (you can set it to autohide if it gets in the way) Game is a bit nicer to play with a mouse but I do hate playing on keyboard, wish PC gaming would catch up on analog movement.
Cheers. Do you notice any fundamental gameplay differences (smarter AI, for instance), or is it just the usual PC vs console "sharper controls, higher technical threshold" story?
just hook your 360 controller to your PC and you should be all set.
only gameplay changes are stuff like moving around a mouse cursor and clicking nodes to do stuff like hacking, choosing skill points and navigating the games ebooks and pocket secretaries (they are like text logs left lying around) which is quite nice as I found the controller quite clumsy for stuff like that. It's like the designers could not make up their mind which buttons were for navigating forward and back. In the game world X was your standard confirm button but then in the menus it was A. Not a huge deal just a but confusing at times.
"I've played both PC and 360, to be honest I prefer the 360 version" You got to be kidding me!!! Deus Ex: Human Revolution PC version on DX11 is much, much better looking then the X360 version. The gameplay is smoother and has KB/Mouse combination... if you don't like KB, connect a X360 controller with a simple PC adapter (got it cheap on ebay).
no im not kidding, I love both my xbox and my PC, so I have no reason to lie, its just my opinion.
Beggars can't be choosers. ;) Hah, na I kid! Seems like a great game, though I don't know if it's my cup of team :(
Been playing this game for the past 2 days and I'm enjoying it much more than MGS4. @dawg They're both stealth games, and I think this one is better, that's the point.
I've been thinking about getting this game too, looks better than Pac-Man
I disagree,on MGS4 you can feel on your hands the beating heart of the main character, you can even feel its pain and its sorrows, you can feel that you are an old man, every moment, every dialogue it packed with an incredible ammount of feelings, in this game you can reach the climax of gaming world, I have deus ex (10 hours of gameplay already) great game but nothing more, I cannot feel the perfection in the air in this game. You cannot compare this with a game that has received perfect punctuation in two completely different cultures (Western & Eastern world).Wester Perfect: IGN, Gamespot, Eurogamr, Game Pro, Game Shark. Eastern Perfect: FAMITSU
Hope developers see this and realize that games in August can sell well, the biggest reason why I bought it is because there were no other big profile games I want until October. If Dues Ex would have come out in October, I probably wouldn't have bought it until it was like $30 but now I bought it Day 1.
just read somewhere else, ps3 only had 31% sales??? are PS3 owners saving money atm?.
UK is 360 territory. They may be saving their money, but I am sure the sales are better for PS3 across other EU countries.
I guess digital downloads for PC didn't come into the equation again hehe. The consoles might still be on boxed retail but pc games are, i reckon, about 70-80% digital now so no one will know how well pc sold as hardly any of the high street retailers stock boxed pc copies. It is a steamworks game as well.
