The lights are on
Square Enix and developer Eidos Montreal have finally announced a release date for Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut.
The game was initially announced as a Wii U exclusive, but has since broadened out to include the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
The Director's Cut comes out on October 22, and includes added functionality via the Wii U GamePad, SmartGlass, and the Vita, among other new features.

Our Take:It was originally thought that the Wii U director's cut would take advantage of that system's launch window, but obviously the release date got pushed out to encompass the other systems. It will be interesting to see if being so close to the holiday season will help or hurt the game's sales.

Oh, I thought this was already released... I guess I was wrong. I wonder if the Vita works as the gamepad for the PS3.
I love this game and played the crap out of it when it came out. But this close to a new platform roll out there is no way I am dropping 60 bucks for a new edition. If they really wanted to make some money on this it should have come out in March - heck even June when game releases pretty much shut down for the summer and I was jonesing for something to do.
will pick this up on PC depending on price, more deus is good. was annoyed at this being exclusive a while ago, didn't know it was coming to other systems..
I already own the standard game on PC, will I have to pay full price for the directors cut, or do I get a discount on it?
F#&%'n great! I'm glad it's FINALLY here but I have one question.
Was the former Wii U exclusive version delayed to coincide with the other systems? Because if it was I'm going to sell this system right now. Nintendo can keep Mario and Zelda.
Wish I would have gotten into this. I can see how the Wii U would ad a unique element to game play.
That's odd. I could have sworn the Wii U version was already out. I've actually been replaying the original game recently. It's a very good, with plenty of good stealth, shooting, and solid rpg elements. A little unpolished in areas, character faces look weird at times and the ending felt rushed, but otherwise a very solid title.
I'd like to buy this updated version, if only to get all the dlc on one disc, but with my finances I can't justify buying what is essentially a game I already own.
Seeing how anyone who would be interested in this game has probably already bought it, I can't see this selling well overall, especially on the Wii U. I predict five figure sales, something along the lines of 50,000 copies sold. But maybe I'm just being pessimistic.
