When Deus Ex: Human Revolution initially launched back in 2011 it was available for PS3, 360, and PC. As is often the case, Wii was left out. More recently, Square Enix revealed that they were going to release the Director's Cut version of the game on Wii U exclusively. Not only would it include DLC and gameplay tweaks but also GamePad functionality.
Now Square has announced that this better version of the game is coming to PC, PS3, and 360 alongside Wii U. How exactly will these other systems replicate the Wii U-exclusive aspects? Simple! SmartGlass technology will be used on Windows and 360 while the Vita can be used as a second touch screen with PS3.
Of course, these methods require the player to own a SmartGlass-compatible device or Vita alongside their home consoles, but it is a solution all the same. Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut was asked for by fans of other platforms which is why we're now seeing it lose Wii U exclusivity. Players can get a shot at the definitive Deus Ex: Human Revolution experience later this year.
