@DragonForce06: I know the deus ex series has always been FPS. I just think it would fit better with third-person perspective for a game like this. Just my personal opinion though.

Well here's a game that PS3 should be able to run pretty smoothly. Not much color, not much alpha blending, slow paced so hopefully not much tearing (that last one may be a stretch). I know that this game will having blazing performance and stellar visuals on 360 and pc but we'll have to play the wait and see for the PS3 verdict, as it's inferior hardware has a hard time keeping up with 360 fidelity.

@b0sse no, Deus Ex has always been FPS with RPG and stealth elements. I heavily recommend to go play the original and you will see what i mean.

I think first-person perspective was a bad choice for this game. They should have gone with third-person for this. Kinda like Splinter Cell.

looks good even on ps3. it's good to see eidos focused on allowing the player multiple ways to progress through the game. similar to the original, it looks like multiple play throughs will be encouraged to get the full experience.

It's looking good - here's hoping it will more like the first Deus Ex game than the second one. I was very disappointed with Invisible War.

P-Ball, if there is ONE THING I cannot stand is a show off, who the xxxx cares about your Wrangler, this is a gaming plot, not a xxxxxxx car show room!!!!!!

...I'll buy the DLC and spend my money because I got a good job and a not so lazy arse! I'll buy day zero, day one, etc., DLC, and more. Who the hell cares where people spend their money, I mean really! You want it, you buy it. If you can't then don't. I bought a new Jeep Wrangler this year for 35k and spent another 5k the first week on it, DLC baby!!! I want it, I buy it!

I wonder if he's going to mention the four pillars of gameplay.

@MasterDZ0522, the reasons you give are valid enough, BUT launch-day paid DLCs=milking people for more bucks. Imagine if someone made PATCHES cost money. Actually, some patches already do, they're just being called differently ...

@playa318 For replay value. And to add stuff after the game is released and not delay it forever.

I'm glad they decided to forgo multiplayer. It would only end up taking something away from singleplayer.

sounds excellent! i don't like the third person and take downs though. looks too much like Splinter Cell Conviction. they should have kept it first person only for PC. or at least put in an option to disable third person and take downs which are dumb imo. thank goodness they redid the interface for PC and made the hints system a toggle option. @ Moloch121 i did too. even at that early stage it looks better than 90% of games in today's world.

Great interview! I think Mr. Bich comes across as sincere and believable, it's not simply hype-building talk. Other marketing guys should take note..

@greasemonkey42 I totally agree. I'm really hoping this game does well. I'm enjoying Duke Nukem Forever, but it would be great to see another sequel to a game from my childhood be even better.

It just sounds like so many things you could want in a game are in it...I really hope they pull this is off big-time for the good of gamers everywhere.

As a PC gamer I am sick of FPS games cause almost all the 3rd person shooter games are made for only consoles. By the way I really like the transition between FPS to 3rd person in this game for stealth & hiding, which is really unique in all aspect. Ans everybody knows that, DEUS EX IS A LEGEND
