Here's a follow-up to yesterday's explosion of news relating to GameStop and the PC version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The retailer sent out a second memo to its stores late yesterday, advising employees to remove PC copies of the game from store shelves, to eventually be shipped back to Square Enix.
The memo goes on to note that the coupon is problematic because GameStop's Spawn Labs Cloud Gaming Division is working on a game streaming service that will compete directly with OnLive when it launches. As a result, Squeenix has agreed to accept the returned product. All pre-orders will still be filled and the game is still available as a digital download from the retailer's website.
Square Enix also issued a statement responding to CouponGate: "As part of Deus Ex: Human Revolution's boxed offering on PC, Square Enix included a third party coupon. GameStop was not made aware of this inclusion and Square Enix respects the right of GameStop to have final say over the contents of products it sells and to adjust them where they see fit in accordance with their policies."
