SegmentNext - Rockstar’s award-winning open-world game Red Dead Redemption has succeeded in selling more than 14 million copies.
Well deserved. Also impressive considering Playstation 3 and Xbox360 were the only platforms it was available for.
0___0 Both Ps3 & Xbox 360 were at 43mil install base at that time.
I know i'm in the minority but i thought it was a bit overrated, i liked it but it wasn't the all-timer it was said to be. The side missions were so redundant, every time i saw a broke down caravan i knew it was a robbery. The default gunplay was elementary, the animal skinning cutscene got tiresome. The world was impressive and it had a great rough n tumble feel. The epilogue was great. Mexico was cool. Marston was excellent but a bit too dry, stoic.
I agree, it was pretty bland and felt empty at times.
I don't disagree with the game feeling a bit baron and empty at times, but consider all that they had to work with. They had to make the game using 1 DVD using just as much space as they used with GTA SA last gen, in a bigger world, with detail etc. Its not an easy task so by default they will have trouble adding features in it like lets say a GTASA, same with the issues they had with GTAIV. Had RDR had in install on top of a second disk, you might have seen them have more features and the world much more deep ala GTAV, but they just didn't have the space for such a thing. They did great with the tools they where handed. Don't give um too much grief on something they sorta couldn't do with a limited format. With both consoles this gen having bluray and lots of ram, expect a much more deeper and complex world. The game was amazing for what it released on and what it actually was. I mean...can you even name another western that gen that even held a candle to Red Dead?
Edmix Call of Juarez Bound in Blood circa 2009, it held a candle, while not as revered it was an excellent game regardless.
I played it for bally 30mins and then out it down,I might give it another shot tho since it's reported as a game that's worth a play through
It's supposed to feel barren. How is that hard to understand? The game was one of R*'s best ever. Easily.
and I remember Michael Pachter said it's gonna sell around 1.4 million copies and as good as DOA.... what a sad joke. RDR PS3 version means a lot to me as it's my very first video game gift I gave to my then 10 year old niece and she still plays poker up to this day.
That's real nice man, love to see people introducing video games to the younger generations!
Well if you consider they have a 160 million plus install base it makes sense. Though was smaller in 2010, 14 million was since release, not at launch so. Its a great game that had long legs through the gen.
Long legs as in a horse. I guess that the implied metaphor may have been in your mind. Personally it wasn't particularlymy idea of a good time in a videogame compared to what I could be doing elsewhere to be like a method acting cowboy with long silences as opposed to once playing its spiritual prequel , the more arcadey, more immediate ,Red Dead Revolver. Each to their own. Perhaps it helps to be American and to be used to seeing and tasting the real nitty gritty and relationships of the people of that beautifu lly tender yet tough kind of history and, indeed, present.
Best Rockstar game ever.
I loved that game one of the best games from last gen and funny thing is I almost never played it because I'm not a fan of the wild west so glad I did tho!
Alright Rockstar enough already announce the next one please
Absolutelly well deserved. One of the most if no the most compelling, likable, humble and unique main character of all times. I take my hat off to John Marston
A classic, one of my favorite games ever. Great narrative, gameplay, graphics, characters, side-quests, a huge world to explore and Undead Nightmare.
hear that Rockstar?, i think that means we want a follow-up...
And to have it come to PC for once.
Coming or not, people will still buy the game.
I loved this game but I also loved Red Dead Revolver too. I wish I could play that one.
So? This game is already 5 years old. That's like making a new article for halo 3 and saying "halo 3 has managed to sell x amount of copies world wide". Are we still counting the copies of ffvii that are being sold??
The difference being FFVII of course is on more than two last gen consoles and Halo 3 got a remake for Xbox One. Not to mention neither is a wild west shooter set over a hundred years in the past.
My point is why bring this up? It's 2015 we are most likely getting a sequel to rdr be it directly or spiritual successor why keep talking about the sales of a game from 5 years ago? It's like yes we know it did good we know it was a niche game being that it was a wild west game but why bring up the sales of a game that's 5 years old?
When game companies post sale numbers, they don't do this for fanboys to get wet, they do this for shareholders. If your read the article, the obvious of what I said is even posted on it.
Well deserved. Would not mind a remaster to hold us off until RD3. Put the remaster on PC as well.
That's what I'm saying. Said the same thing above. Got dislikes haha. It's never come to PC.
Don't see what the problem with a PC version would be.. I primarily game on PC and would to see what my 970 does to that game. Have played it multiple times on both my 360 and PS3, so idc if it ever goes to PC. PS4/X1 remaster would be fine, but for people that don't game on consoles, I would love to see a PC version for them. Everyone should play this game, might be the best of all time.. RDR, TLOU, and Witcher 3 so close together? gaming is strong today. And either way its coming to PC really soon, with emulation. I wont be surprised if DX12 and Win10 combination will help those come through faster.
I wouldn't mind a sequel to Bully. Get on it Rockstar
I would be so happy with a Bully sequel I do not know how I would handle the news!
The only game of last gen I regret not playing. I wanted to but never got around to buying it. I'm begging you R* please let's this come to xbox one via BC.
We are in the same boat.. but luckily we have a Go-Go Gadget Xbox-One.
Think it's time for round 3.
I know so many people who were absolutely in love with this game, and rightfully so. Had no idea it sold that well, like 14 million well, holy crap.
Yeah now that gta v is out of the way, its time to show us sequels to your other franchises. Bully and Read Dead both need follow-ups. L.A. Noire doesn't really need a sequel but They should make another noire style game in another city.
Always wanted to see a PC version
Time for the next rodeo :)
It is my best multiplatform game last generation without doubt!
Is that all? What are you all doing? Go buy this game!!
So...another sequel is being developed? :)
I'd like rockstar to do another western, but maybe not another redemption. I don't see where they could go, unless it was a prequel. It will sell massive anyway. Red dead was a much better story than gta.
Amazing. Red Dead Redemption is tied with Uncharted 2 as my favorite game from last gen. Rockstar seems to take eons to release a game, so we probably won't see there next game until late in the generation unfortunately, but hope to see a new Red Dead.
