They were to open sealed PC copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, remove the coupon that offered a free digital version of the game, throw it away, and then sell those copies as new after resealing the boxes. Later that day GameStop removed the game from store shelves entirely. The result was Square Enix releasing a statement that supported GameStop’s ability to sell, or not sell, anything it wanted. The stores were given copies of the game without the coupon, and life went on. The message was clear and unmistakable however: If you mess with GameStop’s ability to sell a game, or if you think you can use their stores to even indirectly promote a digital service, the retailer has no problems with punching you in the virtual throat. It will be awhile before the digital stores are...

Voice Actor Elias Toufexis, known best for his role as Deux Ex: Human Revolution lead Adam Jensen, was fired from the starring role in Far Cry 3 as Ubisoft worried gamers would confuse both protagonists, Toufexis said during the MCM Comic Con in London. Toufexis worked on Far Cry 3 for two years while recording the voice of Jason Brody until the 2011 release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution when Ubisoft feared the voices between characters were too similar. According to Toufexis, the distinctive nature of his voice has "lost me jobs." "In fact, I shouldn't say this, but there's a game called Far Cry 3, which I'm sure you guys know, where I had played Jason Brody," said Toufexis. "I played him for two years, did the voice and when Deus Ex came out they replaced me because they were...

PC players who already own Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be able "augment" their copy with the game's Director's Cut at a heavily discounted price, Phil Elliott, head of community at Square Enix Europe announced on the Square Enix blog. Owners of Deus Ex and Missing Link DLC can grab the Director's Cut for $4.99. (£3.49/€3.99). Those who don't own the game can purchase the Director's Cut for $19.99 (£12.99/€19.99) and players who own the game without DLC can buy it for $9.99 (£6.99/€7.99). The upgrade offer only applies to the Steam version of the stealth game. "Pretty straightforward, and that means that if you did invest in Human Revolution in the past, we're not trying to stitch you up with the Director's Cut, m'kay?" Elliott wrote. In development for 18 months, Deus...

The upcoming director's cut of Eidos Montreal's Deus Ex: Human Revolution won't be a full-price $60 retail game, a representative for publisher Square Enix told Joystiq. "We haven't announced prices, but it won't be a full launch price," said a public relations manager for the company. "It won't be $60." As Joystiq points out, that's in line with the listed prices at Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop — all of which have the Wii U version at $49.99, and the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions at $29.99. Square Enix has yet to announce a release date; the PR rep said the Director's Cut will be released "soon." Square Enix originally announced the Director's Cut on Wii U in March. During E3, the publisher said it would also be released on Xbox 360, PS3, Windows PC and Mac. Deus Ex:...
