Deus Ex: Human Revolution
plays host to a wide assortment of advertisements for fictional future-products (like robot eyes and face-installed sunglasses) -- but the game now sports a promo for a real-life, purchasable thing
. The game's loading screen occasionally includes a tiny banner announcing the launch of the Star Wars
Blu-ray trilogy, as seen in the corner of the image posted above.
Some of the billboards built into the game's environment are equipped to sport dynamic advertisements
, but we haven't noticed anything as unsubtle as this. We suppose it could be worse! The advertisement could just pop up during a climactic boss battle. Or Darth Vader could just make a totally out-of-place cameo in one of Detroit's seedy alleyways. Actually, no, wait. That would be rad
