    Pulling the coupons from the Deux Ex boxes was just the start of it, now they've began recalling all PC Deus Ex Human Revolution games from their store shelves.

    Gamespy contacted a PR member from GameStop, Beth Sharum, and here is what they had to say about this:

    "Square Enix packed the competitor's coupon with our DXHR product without our prior knowledge and we did pull and discard these coupons," Sharum said.

    What is interesting to note here, is that back in April, GameStop acquired Spawn Labs and by way of this acquisition also acquired the Impulse digital distribution platform. Is GameStop really not playing nice with a product because they offer a bonus for a competitor? That sure seems to be the case.



    The problem doesn't stop there though. Later on in the day, stores were instructed to pull every copy of Deus Ex: Human Revolution completely off of their shelves. Joystiq obtained the following second email sent to stores that directed them to simply pull the copies entirely.


    As part of an "agreement" with Square Enix and GameStop's involvement with Impulse, all copies will be sent back to Square Enix. Yikes!

    Well if it's for a rival service, it kinda makes sense. And it's not like they're gone permanently.

    I wish gamestop wasn't the only gameplace where I live. We have 5 gamestops and no other game store. Gamestop is like the walmart of gaming minus the good prices.

    This is why I buy console games and use Steam for PC games.
