GameStop forced Square Enix to remove Deus Ex: Human Revolution from its shelves


While the PC version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is available in the U.S. recently,we have just learned that the brand GameStop forced Square Enix to remove the game from its shelves. Why? Well just imagine that all this is due to the fact that SquareEnix had integrated in the box, in addition to the game on physical media, a code todownload the title on the platform OnLive. It was not to the taste of GameStop, which owns the platform download Impulse. Thus, if initially, GameStop employees had opened the boxes to remove the coupons, the store chain has reached an agreement with Square Enix in order to return all received versions and replace them with versionswithout box coupons . Moreover, the Japanese company apologized for themiscommunication between both parties and has already prompted buyers who want a version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution without additional coupon to buy the title in one of 4000 stores North American GameStop or download a digital copy on their website.

  4. @John They sell so many games because it's convenient for people. They are worth enough that they could hypothetically do some serious damage if they refused to sell anything by a company
