Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition, Steamworks & PC Support

The revolution may not be televised, but the human revolution will be digitized, as Eidos-Montreal announces plans to digitally distribute Deus Ex: Human Revolution through Steam, adding that the action/RPG prequel will support Steamworks features like auto-updating, Steam Achievements and the Steam Cloud upon its release this August. They also announce that in addition to the standard game, Steam will offer an "augmented edition," which will include a digital art book, a "making of" special, trailers, an animated storyboard of the CGI trailer, a motion graphic novel, the soundtrack, and a free download of the Deus Ex Game of the Year Edition. They say prepurchases are now being accepted, though a glance at the Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Steam Page shows this is premature, but when prepurchases are enabled, they will be at a discount for a limited time: The standard game will be $44.99 USD, and the Augmented Edition will be $53.99 USD. Eidos-Montreal also offers a few documents on PC-specific features: This article describes support for AMD Eyefinity, AMD HD3D technology, and DirectX 11, this tech Q&A discusses those elements in more depth, and this internal Q&A explores the challenges of making the Windows version of Human Revolution live up to the PC roots of the Deus Ex series, in spite of being a multiplatform game. Finally, these screenshots offer a couple of shots from the PC edition and one of the game in Eyefinity mode spread across three monitors.

You use this argument all the time and it's still invalid. You can't compare the price of a used console game with the price of a new PC copy. Obviously the used game will be cheaper. By your logic, I can compare the pirated PC price ($0) with the used console price and argue that the PC version is obviously the better deal.

Even comparing full retail price of a console game, $59.99, against the pre-order price of the PC game, you still come out way ahead paying for the console version. I bargain hunt and get the best price. But you still end up with a $45 PC game if you like it or not where on the console side if you don't like the game you end up with $30 back in your pocket at very least. Net cost cost $30 at worst for new console games. That is a 33% savings on the cost of individual games compared to the pc. (pre order discount pricing BEST CASE) It can easily go past 50% of pc games when you consider in store credits from amazon and retailer discounts and pc games that cost $59.99.

Is shilling for this goozex.com site literally all you post about anymore? Confused
