Expect to pay more than the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC versions
Looks likeDeus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cutis going to cost extra if you’re planning on getting the Wii U version. Nintendo Everything has checked prices at a few retailers and it turns out the final price on Nintendo’s platform will be $50 — that’s $20 more expensive than the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. That price is consistent across Amazon, GameStop, and Best Buy.
This doesn’t appear to be the case in the UK however, with the Wii U version slightly cheaper at £23.99 on Amazon.co.uk, compared to the 360 and PS3 versions which are £24.99. The PC version on Amazon costs just £14.36. Other UK retailers, like GAME and Play.com, have priced the Wii U version at £29.99.
I can understand the annoyance at paying more for a game that’s cheaper on other platforms but in this case I can sort of see justifying charging more. The Wii U GamePad support is pretty extensive and those are features gamers won’t necessarily get on another platform. Still, I’d be really interested to see a breakdown of how sales of the Director’s Cut were split between all platforms, especially as this is the first time Human Revolution has appeared on Wii U.
