Deus Ex Drops OnLive
Deus Ex: Human Revolution no longer has the free OnLive code for cloud gaming. At least, copies sold at GameStop no longer do thanks to legal action. So even if you pre-ordered the game, your free OnLive copy was taken with callous force.
“Square Enix packed the competitor’s coupon with our DXHR product without our prior knowledge and we did pull and discard these coupons,”
Says a GameStop representative. That competitive infringement means that GameStop employees have been forced to open new copies of the game and hand remove all vouchers before selling Deus Ex. Yes, that’s right, employees have been told to open sealed copies, break into the box and pull the coupon, then sell that version. Something has to be slightly wrong with that.
No word on what this means for GameStop sales wise or legally, but people looking to get their OnLive version will have to shop elsewhere.
