No Nolan North, but Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition is still well worth unboxing

Yesterday, we had the voice of Nathan Drake, Nolan North himself talking us through the unboxing of the special edition version of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. Well, today we've got Leon Hurley of Official PlayStation Magazine UK fame talking you through the special edition version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. See the artwork book, learn about the free(ish) DLC codes you get in the box and see some gameplay in action!

    I love this edition, but since I'm in the US I only got my Amazon pre-order bonus card, no DLC missions. Funny too because my first tactical mission I went in all stealth, didn't use the given shotgun/sniper rifle, and knocked out or stunned all the dudes. I love this game. ^^

    I'm guessing that this is the European Augmented Edition being shown, right? I find it strange that the American version of the Augmented Edition does not include the extra mission and all of the extra weapons, but the European version evidently does. I know that depending on where you pre-ordered though, you could still get the extra mission and some of the weapons, but it still seems odd to me that the special edition for the US wouldn't include all the extras. Although, I do like that the American version has a hardcover art book as opposed to paperback like in the video. It's really frustrating to think that I missed out on some of the extra content, despite buying the Augmented Edition, just because I live in the United States and bought it from a certain retailer. Be that as it may, I love the game so far and the Augmented Edition was still worth the money to me.

    I didn't ask for this...

    seriously. that's a lot of good extra content. the art book and bonus making of dvd is enough for me to buy it. i love that kind of stuff. i wish every game had a edition like this.

    I ended up buying the Augmented edition on steam, out of pure laziness. Tesco is a whole 5 minute drive away so instead I'll use Steam to download it over 8 hours... idiot. I miss out on all the fancy box stuff aswell :(

    dude, can you get a refund and then go out and buy the box version? seems like it would be worth finding out. i love steam but, you're getting a bit cheated if you don't at least get a digital copy of the book and the making of dvd in your download. and something tells me you don't.

    I love the way that, instead of putting everything back, or down nicely, he just chucks it behind him. The Lethal Silenced Sniper is the only thing I'd want out of the augmented edition, but my problem with stuff like that is that giving players too-powerful equipment early in the game makes it really boring, but making the free equipment basic means the stuff you've payed extra money for is vastly overshadowed by later equipment, and as such is worthless. Also, the fact there's no lethal Silenced Sniper in the main game, without having to pay extra for the special edition, really bugs me.
