Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Trailer Captured in 4K on PS4 Pro, Rockstar Confirms

Rockstar Games dropped the first gameplay trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 with the first real look at what Rockstar's outlaw sim looks like running naturally.


Awesome! Will probably get it on X since I have both (obviously), but i'm glad they showed off the Pro footage, it looks amazing, the atmospheric affects and LOD especially!

Wish I had both, but I'll be picking this up on the X.

Dragonscale5d ago

Don't need both, I'll be picking this up on the Pro.

darthv725d ago

I too will be getting it on the xbo since I don't have an X but eventually i will and would want to take advantage of that upgraded power.

So ridiculous that you get all these disagrees simply because you said you will get this on X.

Your comment wasn't fanboyish or hateful in the least bit. This community is a joke sometimes.

gamer78046d ago (Edited 6d ago )

I agree with you, but in the spirit of N4g, I just clicked the disagree button... yea internet!

AnubisG6d ago

I agree that it is ridiculous that people disagree with GUTZ.

However, this was the opposite back in thr PS3-360 days. So I guess, what goes around, comes around. Now that we have come fulk circle, maybe next gen we can leave the faboy stuff behind. (Highly doubtful)

343_Guilty_Spark6d ago


That’s just petty, the tit for tat is childish.

CorndogBurglar6d ago


Unless GUTZ was around back in the PS3-360 days disagreeing with anyone that mentioned a PS3 in a positive light, then no, it isn't "what goes around comes around".

This is just people being childish. We're not some kind of hive mind. Not everyone is an idiot fanboy. Some people are capable of enjoying, or at least appreciating video games as a whole without limiting themselves to one console.

As video game fans you would think we should want ALL video games to succeed. More variety is a good thing.

But again, children will be children.

Shineon6d ago

All those downvotes were from the haters ya know haters gon hate ballers gone ball it just the way of life

OB1Biker6d ago (Edited 6d ago )

And I disagree with you.
There's nothing wrong with disagree. People should stop the freaking drama about disagree and playing victim haha
Even for multi console owners there are good reasons for choosing either the Xbox or the PlayStation version.

Aloren6d ago


That's an urban legend.
You registered in 2015. I registered in 2008, and frequently visited n4g even before that. It was just like now except people took away bubbles instead of disagreeing. And back then, they already said "yeah but it used to be the opposite when ps3 first came out".
So as far as I can tell, you're looking at 10 years of trolling fueled by those who weren't there back then but who, for some reason, believe it was "just the opposite", up until right before they got here, while in reality, it probably lasted a few months at best.

bratman6d ago

Urban Legend? Hardly.
Oh man I still remember when Lair released for the ps3... Yikes! the xbox fans did not hold back in the comment section hahah. Maybe one day the fans from both sides can just go about their days without talking smack... maybe just wishful thinking :D

Aloren5d ago


That's a pretty bad example. Lair came out in 2007. It was hyped and ended up with 53 on metacritic. So of course it wasn't going to be praised in the comments...not to mention it came out around the same time as halo 3 which ended up getting 94 on metacritic and was also bashed in the comments, even compared negatively to Resistance which came out a year earlier.

Still, this was eleven years ago. I'm really not sure pointing out a 53/100 game that was bashed in the comments 11 years ago is enough to justify people disagreeing with a guy saying he's going to play a game on xbox in an otherwise pretty positive comment about the Ps4 pro version.

sprinterboy5d ago

Or maybe theres no reason to state what version your getting in the first place? Pretty obviously people are fishing for agree and disagrees for there ego and fanboyism. People start crying if they don't get any agrees or disagrees these days

Eonjay5d ago

A disagree means I don't agree with you.

DarXyde5d ago

It's possible the people disagreeing just don't want to get it on the X.

MrBeatdown5d ago

Welcome to the entire internet guys.

Dragonscale5d ago

@343, it happens on every side. Hope you remember that if xbox ever turns it around.

blackblades5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

Should've never said it to begin with, all he and the others had to say was I'm getting it. Instead he started the flame by mentioning the x with a game stating to be captured on pro.

Sm30005d ago

Agreed corndog. I'm a huge Sony fan, and I see some cringy stuff here. Sony bias is off the charts feels very childish

bluefox7555d ago

Anyone who comments about which console they are getting a game on is doing it to be inflammatory, especially on N4G.

Rimeskeem5d ago

And you are a part of it so you are a joke...?

OB1Biker5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

Hey man
I see you seem to take this stuff seriously.
Just for the sake of trying to explain a point of view different than yours.
Consider the statement: 'Will probably get it on X since I have both '
Now imagine someone who has both too but will get it on PS4 instead.
is it 'ridiculous ' or fanboyish to hit disagree button?

Or do you need long explaination with a list of reasons why someone prefers this particular game on PS4?

Now I didnt initially hit disagree because I didnt feel it was necessary but your comment gave me second thoughts. You also have to admit the agree/disagree that comment had was fairly balanced.

The Pro footage looks gorgeous, which means the X is just gonna be hopefully pushed beyond that with the extra 2 TFLOPS. I have both systems but I usually pick up multiplatforms on the X for that very reason.

MatrixxGT6d ago

When I saw this I thought “man this must be X footage” crazy how talented rockstar is. I have a pro and a x and I’m kinda torn. I usually prefer my single player games on PS.

81BX6d ago

Lol. The game is so pretty, I thought it was running on PC.

soulsx5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

And X have memory adventage 3,5 gb more than ps4 pro so 4k textures and more grass and detail can be used :-) and memory bandwitch 326 gb vs 218 so draw distance upgrade is possible with nativ 4k

fiveby95d ago

I own both a Pro and an X. But with the exclusive PS content, I will go for Pro. I imagine it'll play great on both. But for eventual MP, most ppl I know are playing on PS so I'll stick with Sony this time. But frankly to my XBox friends, have a blast. It'll be a fantastic game wherever played.

A good looking ps4 pro game should mean a better looking XBONE X game. No reason people should disagree with you.

Orionsangel6d ago

Yep, the XboxOneX has far superior 4K than the PS4 Pro.

Ceaser98573615d ago

"Yep, the XboxOneX has far superior 4K than the PS4 Pro."
Well nope, a quick google will educate you that X has better specs but "FAR SUPERIOR 4K" than the PS4 pro is made up and bull crap... you are welcome.

Orionsangel5d ago

@Ceaser9857361 I don't care about specs and numbers. What matters is what's visually pleasing to my eyes and I find that 4K on Xbox One X looks far superior than PS4 Pro. I win this argument. NEXT!

rebeljoe146d ago

I’ll get it for the pro instead, gotta have those trophies. Achievements irks me and feel useless on my gamer score total

mkis0076d ago

I probably will too, but I'm still on the fence as I don't pay for xbox live but I do pay for psplus, and I may want to try
multiplayer a bit. I would love it if the comparisons came out early. If it's just native vs 4k checkerboard resolution as the difference then I would probably get it on ps4.

Ceaser98573615d ago

I already preordered the Ultimate ed. on my PRO , cant wait and excited for Red dead online .

3-4-55d ago

So it could potentially look even better than this on the XB1 X ? I'm thinking of doing that Gamestop deal for the XB1X so I can have to for games like RDR2.

gamersday085d ago

So the resolution is that important now??? Whatever happened to play the game not resolution by lord phil???

Anyway, you all should get it on pc if you want the best graphics/animation/audio version. No compromise there as the game is CREATED ON A PC AND SCALED DOWN TO FIT THE CONSOLES.

X is redundant and already abandoned by m$. All the new studios and new games are for the new xbox. Most 4k games x has barely made it to 4k and most have fluctuating framerates (unstable 60fps). I can foresee this is going to be the same. So, Pc version for me.

Unless Sony paid for parity again the XB1X should be 4K and possibly 60fps.

SCW19826d ago (Edited 6d ago )

Your smoking crack if you think the X is going to do 4k 60 with this game. Pro will be 1440p checkerboard 4k and X will be either 1800p or 2160p if it hits that 2160p than you can consider it Native 4k, both will run at 30fps. The amount of people who think the X is comparable to a 1070-1080 is ridiculous. Not to mention the lack of CPU power in both upgraded consoles is still extremely limited. And get out of here with that Sony paid for parity bull crap, how old are you to really believe any of that garbage?

UltraNova6d ago

If history taught us anything Rockstar is more prone to get in bed with MS instead of Sony (GTA4 DLC). So yeah let them keep throwing crap and see what sticks.

Liqu1d6d ago

@UltraNova Rockstar have a marketing deal with Sony and PS4 users get exclusive DLC.

Sevir5d ago

History has taught us anything, it's that MS paid Rockstar millions to associate GTA4 with XB 360, because XB launched a whole year earlier than PS3! Rockstar had released several GTA games on PS2 in the previous generation so MS had have that notoriety on XB, which was why they forked over marketing rights money to have the game be marketed on xb360 along with the 2 6 month exclusive DLC that came to xb360 first...

GT5 was marketed exclusively on PS3 and PS4, because Sony paid for it. So no... History has shown that developers we'll get in bed who who's check is bigger...

Sony's spending the cash on Rockstar so far, which is why the footage is debuting on PS4 Pro, and why there is a PS4 pro bundle and Exclusive DLC and content for the game. So, Rockstar for this release is in bed with Sony.

Dragonscale5d ago

@ultra, and thats why they got in bed with Sony with red dead. Tbh they will get in bed with whoever is the lead format currently.


Considering they got GTAV to run Native 1080p on X1, this should hit native 2160p since the X does a minimum of 4x the resolution bump comparatively

SCW19825d ago

I would be extremely impressed if this hit 2160 on X. I think more realistically though its gonna be 1800 upscaled to 2160p. Either way its going to be a great looking game for players.

frostypants5d ago

Hell I'm not even sure a 1080 could run this game at 4K/60fps...

ziggurcat6d ago

marketing deals don't affect the development of a game on a competing console. time, and time again we see this conspiracy theory proven wrong. sony doesn't force parity.

gravedigger6d ago

Remember Destiny 2 and what Jez Corden said.

yomfweeee6d ago


Jez Corden had ZERO proof for what he said. He just made that up and called it a fact.

He called it a fact that D2 could run at 60fps...again, not a fact. Just his opinion.

Even if there was proof the held back X1X version, that steal isn't proof of a parity deal. It is a multi-player game and they could have wanted X1 version to match X1X version in frames.

ziggurcat6d ago


the proof there's no forced parity is in the fact that the X version is native 4K, and the Pro version isn't. if Sony was forcing parity, the X version would have also been checkerboard 4K.

gravedigger6d ago (Edited 6d ago )


Besides his tweet which says that Sony paid for parity in Destiny 2, he also said that every open world game on X1X will be 60 fps. 865805886186565632

Well, delusional being. 60 fps on X1X. LOL! Knock, knock? Who is it?....It's a crappy Jaguar CPU.

generic-user-name6d ago

Paid for parity? Lol, MS were the only company sad enough to include a parity clause in their contracts.

Chris125d ago

Evidence for this statement?

mkis0076d ago

Just boosting the resolution alone is taking the extra power the X offers: 4x the pixels of 1080p. There is nothing so advanced on the X that going from 1080p/30 to 2160/60 is remotely possible. You need a lot more cpu power not just gpu power. Frankly I find it wasteful to spend all that power on resolution. Wouldn't you rather have 1800p and a bonus to lod/draw-distance/shadow distance? I can guarantee everyone would notice those details before they noticed the resolution difference.

AmUnRa6d ago (Edited 6d ago )

If you think that hench07 than you are delusional, The (weak Jaguar) CPU' s on both are almost the same. No, the XboxOneX version will also run on 30fps.

sampsonon5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

you got it wrong, it was MS that paid for parity when the OG xbox could hardly make 720p.

i do because it pissed me off that i bought a ps4, not only for their games lineup but because it was cheaper and more powerful. all i heard was "parity" for the first 3 years.

no game should be gimped whether it be a ps4 to xbox, or an X to a ps4 pro.

sampsonon5d ago


"Evidence for this?"

I'm having a hard time finding it, but it was in 2015 where a dev said they were gimping the ps4 version to keep parity with the x1. they company retracted the statement after, but the cat was out of the bag at that point. they wouldn't do this unless they were being paid "wink" without anyone finding out.

i tried searching but i can't get anything beyond 2017, when they start talking about parity for the one x and x1.

anyone else know what I'm talking about? because there were a few games that talked about parity and gimping the ps4.

Ceaser98573615d ago (Edited 5d ago )

"Unless Sony paid for parity again the XB1X should be 4K and possibly 60fps."

You are clueless if you believe X can run RDR 2 at 4k 60fps.. You need google and learn about the specs.. specially the CPU part..

Comments like this are so hilarious that i feel like trolling this guy but N4G police wont spare me :P


60fps... yeah sure, maybe if the CPU was 3.3ghz per core instead of 2.3ghz

frostypants5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

The One X is about equivalent to a GTX 1060 or RX 580 GPU...neither of which are considered true 4K GPUs in PC gaming circles. They can do it...but they won't run a game like this at 4K/60fps, and neither can the One X. People drink too much kool-aid and overestimate what the X is capable of. It's going to be next gen before consoles can push high fidelity graphics at 4K and 60FPS on anything approaching a consistent basis.
