Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Pre-Order Program Revision
On the show, Rich and I often say that gamers could dictate what companies sell us if we would band together and let our money speak for us. It looks like this has finally happened in the case of pre-orders for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Plyers like to have choices in their games, not having to make a bunch of them before they even get it. The original pre-order system for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was admittedly stupid; it encouraged people to pay more for the game to achieve certain pre-order “tiers.” In almost each of the tiers you then had to choose which of the available pre-order bonuses you wanted. The alternative was to buy the $150 Collector's Edition which had all of the “augment your pre-order” bonuses. Apparently this did not sit too well with fans of the series and they let Square Enix know about it. As of now, the previous pre-order structure has been scrapped and all of said content will be available to pre-order and/or those who purchase the Day One version of the game. The funny thing about that is that unless you are after the Statue in the collector's edition and the extras that come with it, there is literally no reason to pre-order this game. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is expected in stores on February 23, 2016. This is a Square Enix release of a well-known franchise. There are going to be plenty of copies to go around on day one.
