GameStop Discarding Deus Ex: Human Revolution OnLive Coupons

There's an image of an email on Ars Technica allegedly from a Field Operations Manager with GameStop that instructs employees to "remove and discard" the coupon for a free OnLive version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution included with the Windows edition of the action/RPG prequel. Ars contacted GameStop public relegations and confirmed this, as GameStop apparently views OnLive as a competitor. Word is: "GameStop spokesperson Beth Sharum confirmed the practice, telling Ars that 'Square Enix packed the competitorís coupon with our DXHR product without our prior knowledge and we did pull these coupons'." Thanks Dirwulf.

This just in from CNN money

"Now, GameStop says it will not sell the opened DXHR packages -- in fact, it won't sell any physical copies of the game at all until Square Enix ships GameStop a version without the OnLive coupon. GameSpot will continue to sell its own digital version of the game in its stores and online."

LOL! GameStop's loss then. With Amazon.com being cheaper AND including $10 off next purchase, Steam with it's ease of use, or the big box stores to purchase this game, they are only shooting themselves in the foot by refusing to carry it. It's not like they even want to sell PC games anyways.
