    GameStop under fire for removing free coupons from Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    GameStop under fire for removing free coupons from Deus Ex: Human Revolution | Games Blog - Yahoo! Games
    The battle over digital game distribution just took a turn for the ugly.

    Video game retail giant GameStop has been opening up brand new PC game boxes of the critically-acclaimed shooter Deus Ex: Human Revolution and removing packed-in coupons granting free copies of the game to users of the OnLive cloud gaming service.

    OnLive and Deus Ex publisher Square Enix announced the coupon deal yesterday, which would let buyers of a boxed PC copy download and play another copy of the game, for free, via OnLive's cloud based network, a $50 value.


    But apparently GameStop, which has its own digital distribution platform, wasn't on board with what it believes is helping to promote the competition. A letter sent out to GameStop employees instructing them to "immediately remove and discard the OnLive coupon from all the regular PC versions of Deus Ex: Human Revolution" has been widely circulated, and GameStop has since officially confirmed the practice.
    Maybe GameStop should let the consumer decide.

    Gamestop has always been a terrible to buy games, they have had lawsuits going with game developers for years concerning re sale of games. Amazon IMO is alot easier to deal with
