Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut Will Cost $20 More On Wii U Than On PS3 And 360

The Nintendo tax?
When Square Enix announced Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut for the Wii U, everyone was pretty happy about getting to play a past classic with enhanced GamePad functions.
However, when the news broke that this "exclusive" version was also coming to the PS3 and 360, some Wii U owners felt slightly short-changed.
That negative feeling is only set to get worse, as Square Enix has now confirmed that the Wii U version of the game will cost $49.99, while the PS3 and 360 editions will be priced at $29.99.
Charging $20 more for the Nintendo edition seems incredibly cheeky to us — granted, the Wii U version makes use of the GamePad's screen and you could argue that this required additional development to achieve — but does it really justify such a huge price difference?
