Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut more expensive on Wii U in the US – report

Friday, 11th October 2013 03:00 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Possibly because it’s the first time the game has released on the console, as opposed to a re-release, the Wii U version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution seems to be more expensive than the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions in North America.

The news doesn’t come from Square Enix, but Nintendo Everything checked a number of US retailers and found the Wii U version going for about $50, while the other console versions were priced at around $30.

Meanwhile, Destructoid found that UK retailers priced all versions fairly similarly, with the Wii U version a little cheaper.

All three console versions have second-screen features (via SmartGlass and Vita for Xbox 360 and PS3) so there’s little difference between them.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut arrives on Mac, PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 before the end of the month. You can check out what’s new in the Director’s Cut in this handy trailer.

Thanks, CyberMarco.

    Let’s see: Most people won’t know about Wii U only features of this title and they’ll look: 50 bucks on Wii U, 30 bucks everywhere else (Director’s Cut).

    Yes, this is how you can guarantee a bomb on Wii U and then say the system is not profitable and stop making games for it. I know Wii U isn’t doing great (it’s a disaster) but moves like this only give publishers more reasons to abandon it faster.
