Gone Gold - Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Square Enix announces that Deus Ex: Human Revolution is gold, and Eidos-Montreal's now-complete action/RPG prequel will be released as promised in North America on August 23 for Windows, OnLive, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, with the release in other territories set for August 26. The news is accompanied by a new screenshot, as well as word on several related promotions: Augment Your Living Room PowerUp Rewards, a QR Missions Scavenger Hunt, and a Wooster Street Social Club Art Exhibition. Here's word on the game:

Telling the story of Adam Jensen, a man cybernetically augmented against his choice who finds himself in the middle of a global conspiracy to which he holds the key, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION is set in a near-future world where humanity is at a turning point.

By offering players the chance to play the game in multiple and vastly different ways, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION challenges the foundations of gaming and provides an immersive experience where every choice has a lasting consequence.

I'd offer to buy it from USA and send you the steam code, but there's no guarantee that valve won't revoke and remove the game after a few weeks since its different territory (I assume you live in UK since you've mentioned GBP). They did that with orange box purchases when people bought legit asian steam serials, then put them into USA steam accounts. Then they told everyone who had purchased them, tough crap go buy it again.
Actually, I had no problems when I sent money over to another member of Bluesnews and got them to gift the game to me - that was for a game (Far Cry 2) that wasn't available at the time here in the UK. But I wouldn't recommend it just for saving a bit of money; I'd only risk it if the title isn't available. Just accept you're going to pay a bit more or hold off for the inevitable sale.

But this game is an instant purchase for me.

Valve honors GreenManGaming codes regardless of region because they are not reselling keys used specifically for asian markets which are priced that way because most people in Asia make 1/100th of what we do in a year. I've ordered several games from GMG and activated them in two different regions without issue.
Good to know, thanks Verno.

Well I'll have to keep an eye out there in the future. Thanks for the offer Dev, I'm in Canada. And it's still a fair chance they'd do that too. But it seems that a lot of companies still think that Canada = UK or Canada = US. And they do all kinds of weird shit.

I haven't seen it for sale there for $30. I've seen it there for $30GBP, which is $46cdn/$48USD. And when I do see the non-GBP price, it's $48.

$28.80 (US dollars) deal info there, thats the price I got it at. Pretty sure they are selling it at a loss at that price.

There's a new coupon code in that thread that should still give that price.

I don't know how they deal with region stuff and different pricing between regions, so dunno what price it will give you in GBP if you cant get USD. UK often gets screwed on tons of things in pricing like that, and AU gets screwed even worse.

They did that with orange box purchases when people bought legit asian steam serials, then put them into USA steam accounts. Then they told everyone who had purchased them, tough crap go buy it again. Woulda been better if they'd just prevented the serials from being entered in the first place, instead of taking games away that people paid for.
More info: Link
My guess is that that wouldn't happen between USA and UK, especially since I doubt that GMG is differentiating the codes by country for people ordering. I think valve mostly cares about the much cheaper legit asian country retail copies getting to countries like USA/europe.

You do realize that the Purity First trailer only represents one of the ideologies in the game and that the player doesn't have to agree with it, right?

No I didn't realize that the trailer represented only one of the ideologies in the game, but you already knew that, right?

I don't understand how you people expect this to be a good game. It'd be a fucking miracle for the ages if this came remotely close to the original.

I don't expect this to be a good game thats close to the original, I KNOW it is..

As for the first to third person switch, you can just opt to use normal crouch strafing and stay in first person throughout the game.

Thats what cool about this game, not only do you have the choices you can make in game, but also the choices how and if to use the mechanics and options.

Sure, a first person lean would have been nice, but its not really necessary.

Anyway, connecting software with DRM to an account has only disadvantages for the customer. There is no benefit in this. When i buy a copy from GOG.com, i "own" that copy because i can do with this copy whatever i want. I can give to friends, i can play it on any computer without hassling with a client and/or internet connection.


I can log in to Steam at home, buy what I want, and then log in on my laptop and install the same game there if I want. No messing around, no DVD's to copy an ISO, simple. If I ever delete it, have a hardware failure, get a new system or whatever, I can just log in to my account and redownload it wherever I want. How is that not a benefit?


That's not a benefit of the DRM, GOG allows all those things as well with no DRM. Ah the joys of cognitive dissonance, although this example isn't nearly as humorous as the comments on the Origins story a couple of days ago.

Although I guess in the end it is no different to a pop music musician singing a sing about how we shouldn't be greedy and learn to live together in harmony on a album published by a RIAA label...

They don't just sell steam keys, they also sell stuff that uses their own distribution program (called capsule I think). They've done some super sales of titles like Civ 5, and now of DX:HR, probably in an effort to get market share (they are likely selling DX:HR at a loss at under $30).

Also, I think its more than its an international UK based credit card processor that flags it for some card companies. I.e. any international charges can get flagged if you don't have a history of ordering stuff like that.

Anyway, they are a legit company, I've ordered from them a few times before. In fact, when I ordered Civ 5 from them, its in my steam account as something like "civ 5 green man gaming edition" or some such.

Well I finally broke down and tried the 'version' that's been floating around. Damn it. Pre-ordered just off of that.

GMG is also about the same price for me (in the UK) as getting it on Steam. Amazon and play.com are both offering DX:HR for £27.99, but I'm still thinking of getting it via Steam with the hope that they see more money from it that way - and plus I don't have to rely on the mail system!

Well with GMG's sale on right now for DX:HR, they're ~$2.50 more than buying it through steam if you're Canadian.

What is GMG?

GreenManGaming. They're based in the UK, and sell steam keys. People have bought various games from them and applied their keys to steam with no problem. Apparently some banks don't like their card processor, so it sometimes causes problems.

But they have DX for like $35.99, and they also have promo codes that knock off more. Which is how some of us got the game for $28.80. But they don't send the keys until launch day, I believe.

GMG = Green Man Gaming. They had DX:HR for $35 plus 15% off about a week ago. Probably worth waiting for the weekend and a similar sale. Here's a Refer-a-friend link, if you sign up through that and spend more than $5 we both get $5 credit, so feel free to post yours afterwards and keep the chain going.

Btw. i have about 40 games in my Steam list. It's not that i do not like Steam. But all for less than a few dollars and all with patched game files to make sure i can play my games anytime i want.

I can log in to Steam at home, buy what I want, and then log in on my laptop and install the same game there if I want. No messing around, no DVD's to copy an ISO, simple. If I ever delete it, have a hardware failure, get a new system or whatever, I can just log in to my account and redownload it wherever I want. How is that not a benefit?

And you don't need patched game files to play your games anytime you want. There's an offline mode in Steam.

Besides that, how many use systems with no internet connection for gaming on a regular basis?
