Why so many disagrees? Have people had better experiences with Gamespy servers on PS3, cause there are a tonne of complaints on the gearbox forums etc about borderlands, it is a legitimate concern. This bonus content is US only as well...PAL gamers always get shafted :(

Immortal, how can your comment be anything but trolling ? Have you actually played the game on the PS3 and can report this based on your own experience ? Obviously not, because you want to get it for the 360...

It's your "duty" to warn PS3 owner, huh ? /s
Immortal Kaim  +   2099d ago
@ Zu
Why would I care if you get it on PS3 or not, I'm warning fellow PS3 owners about the Gamespy issue

It is a legitimate concern believe it or not for PS3 owners, no I haven't played RDR yet but going by past experience, Gamespy servers are horrible for voice chat.

Leave your fanboy bullsh*t at the door Zu, we are trying to discuss the pros and cons of each version for those who have a choice.

@Immortal Kaim
What's wrong with the voice chat in Borderlands? I've platinumed that game and played all the DLC with friends and randoms. The only "problem" I've come across is not being able to talk during the loading screens. That ain't much of an issue in my book.
BeaArthur  +   2099d ago
I think it comes in the game box which would lead me to believe it's free.

I was getting the PS3 version anyways but this only confirms that it was the right choice.
Nicholas Cage  +   2099d ago
oh yea
man i gotta get the ps3 version.
Brewski007  +   2098d ago
They say in the article its free. . . so that kinda sums it up.
Alot of people seem to just read the summery on this site and not read the full article.
Probably will pick up mine on ps3 also.

yeah because rockstar just made some extra content flipped a coin and said "heads sony and tails Microsoft"...I guess it was heads eh?
Your delusional if you think this wasn't compensated for in some way.
erathaol  +   2099d ago
I'm confused. I bought it from GameStop, so am I getting the limited edition version and free bonus PS3 content? That would be mega sweet if I am.

shoulda got it at amazon. 20 dollar gift card and golden weapons pack. same thing for both versions.

as for this extra ps3 content...meh. it's nothing compared to getting to play extra content like in batman. this is just an outfit and place to sit.

i'm sure rockstar got a few bucks to add in this extra content, but it's not enough to convince me one version is better than the other.
Crazyglues  +   2099d ago
it's not limited edition it's PS3 version, so as long at you bought the PS3 version you are getting it.. (there is no Limited edition for North America.. that was just for the UK)
_____________________________ _______________________Back on Topic..

How Cool is that thou....

Always nice to see the developers showing some love to the PS3 version..

Since 360 seems to be getting all the love. (could just be because Microsoft is paying for everything)

-but this is pretty cool, can't wait to check out the game should be pretty amazing if all the reviews turn out to be true.. :)

The ballad of Gay Tony and Lost and damned were pretty good (they really cleaned up some of the things in GTAIV, the guns were amazing the boards or streets seem to be better optimized making it feel more open and smooth)-but it could be the fact that I switched to a 25inch HD 1080p monitor so don't quote me on that..

But even thou, I'm really excited to see what they did with RDR, since Rockstar seems to be getting really good at this open world thing..

They said it was harder to make an open world of this kind so I expecting a really big open world with some amazing Landscape shots. just stunning views, hopefully.

Lmao @ you guys failing to tell the difference between limited and special editions, it says it right on the box, DOH!
Crazyglues  +   2099d ago
OMG!!! why all the disagrees..... People
I come back from lunch and this is what I see, all these people hitting disagree...

So let me clear up what you don't understand, In the U.S there is no Limited Edition... what they did is take the UK limited edition and broke up the content for each of the three big stores... GameStop, Best Buy, and

So to be clear, there is no Limited for U.S instead you have specials for each store...

There are countless horses to be found in the massive world of Red Dead Redemption, but none is stronger, faster or tougher than the exclusive War Horse. Whether storming gang hideouts, exploring the wilderness for hidden treasure, or outrunning the law, the War Horse gives gunslingers an advantage in nearly every situation.

John Marston's "Deadly Assassin" outfit causes your Dead Eye meter to regenerate at twice the speed. With more Dead Eye, you have more time to place each shot with total accuracy, making you the deadliest gunslinger in any fight. - THE GOLDEN GUNS WEAPON PACK
The player who wields the exclusive Golden Guns receives more Fame for each kill. The more Fame you get, the more in-game side missions become available. So there will be more opportunities to duel, more kidnapped townsfolk to rescue and you can bribe lawmen for less.

So depending on where you pre-ordered you get one of those with your pre-order...

The UK Limited edition will get all three... with a SOUNDTRACK from the game.

Hope this clears this up for you guys... enjoy the game it will be awesome... Hope to see you guys out west....

Yeah, I know I shouldn't care about disagree's but when people disagree -maybe it's just me but I want to know why? what did you disagree about? maybe I'm wrong - tell me what part you didn't agree with...

( I can learn something too, I'm not perfect, I would like to know what people don't agree with )

I know that sounds crazy but, it's the one thing I don't like about the site, people disagree and then never state why? Because I would like to know what they were thinking maybe I was wrong about something, but I have no idea because they didn't say...

too bad too because maybe they had a good reason but we will never know?

Sony says they dont pay for exclusives, but no one knows what cheques are written. Devs tend to keep things as even and neutral as possible unless there is money involved.

I think Sony probably had some leverage in the franchise or something to get this treatment.
i dont think they'd just throw it in there.

Either it was paid, or loss of LA Noire exclusivity.. etc etc.
There was some politics involved. The world doesn't run on good will.

Wow, WTF??
Why do you have so many disagrees!? That is a perfectly unerstandable and legitimate reason to buy it on the 360. So many angry people on this site, sheesh...
mastiffchild  +   2098d ago
Unless it's all his mates disagreeing because they actually said they'd get the PS3 version? Or maybe people on N4G just know his mates better than he does? Who knows what power lies behind the disagree button? What's the point of the agree and dis buttons anyway? With the bubbles system isn't actual feedback sorted out in a way where you can say why rather than just hide behind the gimp button?

Nothing more feeble than seeing a reasonable comment spammed with disagrees but nobody bothering to post ONE reason why they DID disagree in the thread. Common decency people, it's just manners and it doesn't cost much. I ill say, though, that limiting people to three initial bubbles will up the disagree fairies input tenfold as folk get more precious about when they speak.
kunit22c  +   2099d ago
and unlike Microsoft Sony didn't have to pay for exclusive content, but on a more serious note I think that maybe they wanted to add this to both originally but the 360's DVD limit made it not possible to put it in, so they just put it on the PS3. This is a lkinda unlikely but still possible.
@ himdeel
are you kidding? Its more for if people have both consoles than they will buy the PS3 version, and if you have both and still buy the 360 version, than your just stupid, i'm sorry but its true.

vhero  +   2099d ago
@secksi-killer - See thats the main deal for 360 and why games keep selling for 360. The lead 360 got is still hitting PS3 because of the reason you just stated. When I bought Bad Company 2 I played with only 2 of my PS3 friends because all my other friends who had the game got the 360 version. The reason?? They got the 360 first before the ps3 came out.. all there mates too are stuck in the same deal. They don't want to pay for a PS3 until there 360 does finally pop its clogs.

Usually like with me you build up a huge collection of games though and when it dies you don't wanna lose that collection and buy another 360 instead of moving to ps3.. However after 3 dead 360's and a crap load of damaged DVD's I traded all my 360 games and moved to PS3 and never been happier.
secksi-killer  +   2099d ago
i agree and disagree with what you say. although i love my ps3, i couldnt be without my 360 either. i love them both lol.

kunit22c: leave it out, afterall, it is only a couple small things, and definately not a huge loss. i said above you that i was getting this on my 360 for a certain reason. and ino, that reason is alot more important than the exclusive content.

am i stupid by the way?
SPARTANVI  +   2099d ago
Same reason. I only buy PS3 exclusives. Multi-platform games, especially those with online multiplayer, will most definitely go to my Xbox360.

My group of friends have been XBL members for over 6 years. It would be "stupid" to buy RDR for my PS3 while my friends play it on their X360s.

The answer is in the article.
FanboysWillHateMe  +   2099d ago
I get most multiplatform games for the 360, but
exclusive content like this makes me get the PS3 version, just like Arkham Asylum.

BUT, this is a multiplayer game, so I still gotta go with the 360 version, cause that's where all my friends are.
niceguywii60  +   2099d ago
Why would somebody choose to play this type of game[heavily multi player] on the PS3 if they had a choice? I'm guessing there is something wrong with the PS3 version. Strange choice considering the 360 has two AAAs landing on that day. Must be timed.
ThanatosDMC  +   2099d ago

Batman: AA and Dante's Inferno both sold more on the PS3 and that was probably thanks to the extra content they offered.

I am surprised we have not heard about this earlier. If this was a MS exclusive they would be singing it from the rooftops.

It is the same with Lost Planet 2 with the Helghast skin.

@StixRemix below It is possible but I don't think the Joker is playable yet on the 360 verion of Batman AA. So it might stay exclusive bt I could be wrong on both accounts.

Sony doesn't need to rely on 3rd party DLC as much as Microsoft does. Sony is too busy churning out 1st Party content to promote another companys extras.
Elven6  +   2099d ago
If people don't know about it, the purpose is kind of lost, don't you think? Batman: Arkham Asylum exclusive content was advertised pretty heavily and it outsold the 360 version of the game in the end.
BeaArthur  +   2099d ago
I agree with Elven6, if it's there it might as well be promoted. It's not a matter of whether they need to rely on it or not, it's already in the box so they should promote it in case anyone is on the fence about what version to buy.
Lou-Cipher  +   2099d ago
Batman:AA is not a shooter. That is the #1 reason it sold better than the 360 version. Im sure the DLC helped, but The main reason it sold better on PS3 was because It wasn't a Call of Duty game.

Allthough you are right. It would mean more sells for Sony if they did promote the little things as well.

This is what PSBlog had to say about the PSHome unlockables in RDR:

"Red Dead Redemption (available for the PS3 on May 18th) will unlock exclusive outfits for your avatar upon reaching in-game milestones."

There's no mention of a 'hideout,' so it seems this is ingame content rather than PSHome stuff, although you could be right.

You have to wonder if the home stuff was also part of Sony's deal with R*/taketwo.. and you also have to wonder if R* gave sony a good deal because they simply couldn't fit in on the 360 disk.

I have both systems and this piqued my interest a little bit but it really doesn't seem like that big of a deal, a new outfit and access to a hideout which sounds interesting for sure but I'm probably gonna get the 360 version largely because of the controller, triggers in a western? I'm in. Now if they added in some SIXAXIS controls for the PS3 version, that could be very interesting.
Solidus187-SCMilk  +   2099d ago
It depends on the comparisons which one Ill get

Croaker  +   2099d ago
Exactly, Gameplay.
For me it comes down to this. Which system do I have more friends on. LIVE, that's where. I have two friends on PSN and 37 or so on LIVE. A lot of my LIVE friends are 'actual' friends. I know that 5 of them are going to pick this up day 1. Some that are the fence (until I bring it over to their house that is) and a few that don't care for it.
I too prefer the 360 pad over the PS3's. This is just personal preference, it just fits more naturally in my hands.
Plus there'll be DLC for both systems. And honestly I'm sure that the two versions will look identical. R* has the talent to pull that off.

Still I am intrigued by this promotion or lack there of. Now if the outfit was the hunters outfit, I might have been swayed. I knew everyone would vote for the cliche assassin's outfit.

Rather annoying... Again

I wanted the Joker for Batman too, but wasn't about to change my usual routine of Xbox 360 for Multiplats and PS3 For exclusives for a little bit of DLC.

Ah well, if it had been on the scale of full expansions I would probably be swayed to get the PS3 Version. But I can live with missing out on an outfit and hangout.
Croaker  +   2099d ago
It's funny how everyone disagrees with your opinions, however I'm quite sure that if you'd have switched up the words a little along the lines of: "I always buy PS3 games for both multiplats and exclusives, and just buy some of the 360 exclusives" You would've gotten 4 agrees with 1 disagree. Funny how that works on this site...

ye but if the guy prefers playing games on his 360 he'd only switch to a ps3 multiplat if there was significant dlc for it.

this is a nice little bonus but not worth switching platforms over imo, especially if he has mates to play with on the 360's online...

dalibor  +   2099d ago
If I had both systems I would get more games for the PS3. Simply b/c they are harder to scratch thanks to the coating on the data side. We all have our reasons but that is what I would do if I had both consoles. And use the system that you have more online friends with.
My imput that is all.
Lirky  +   2099d ago
I noticed most versions that were shown were the 360 one, im ready to see the ps3 version and how rockstar utilize the blu ray space i hope theres a 2-3gb install too so that it allows faster saving/loading and an overall better experience over its competitors. But then again its equal on both platforms since its the same game.

I'm getting the 360 version
and I will downloading the game to the hard drive. With GTA IV it seemed to cut down on load times and I thought I observed less environmental pop in (but I could be wrong about that).

Cant wait, I'm sure no matter which console you buy it for it will be awesome.

to jack_burton:

I've searched all over the place and I have not found any tech specs of the game, except ones that simply copied and pasted the specs from GTAIV and assumed RDR would be the same. If you go by that info it also states that RDR's resoultion is:

Xbox 360 - 720p native
PlayStation 3 - sub-HD (1152x640)

just like GTAIV.

but all the sources I could find had no sources of their own, so I'll wait till post release so we can get some real info

well said
that is one overlooked point, the 360 optional installs, better loading,less heat and no pop-in (in gta4 as far as im concerned)
nycredude  +   2099d ago
WTF are you people talking about. This is about RDR not GTA4. Get with the times man and stop the stealth troll BS. We get it you like the 360 move on now. How about my excuses for getting it on the Ps3 and it has nothing to do with how many friends i have on it, the resolution, content or lack there of. I just feel much more comfortable that my Ps3 will last long enough for me to finish a game that is likely to last 60 plus hours, plus it doesn't sound like a jet engine when on, unlike my 360.
Obama  +   2099d ago
hmm first off we don't know if there's a difference in resolution between the two versions until the game is out.

Secondly I find it interesting that you guys suddenly care about resolution; did that stop you guys from buying Alan Wake?

and i thought
ps3 fanboys like ya self didn't play "teh salez" but yet look at this, and look who is all in that posting it up.

"Red Dead Redemption will also feature some exclusive to hopefully sway the consumers mind towards the PS3 version. It did work with Batman and the title ended up outselling the Xbox 360 likely due to that reason"

Really? Got some kind of "magic data" that proves that was the reason?

And, BTW...just like with GTAIV:EFLC....this won't remain "exclusive" for long anyway. ;)

I wonder if Sony paid Rockstar $75 million for that DLC?

ALFAxD_CENTAURO  +   2099d ago
The thing is that Sony is smart with the DLCs.

It really doesn't sound like much extra to sway someone to buy a different console. It sounds like one of those extra goodies that doesn't really make much difference in the game.
waltercross  +   2099d ago
The article said it might sway someone to buy the PS3 Version if they have both consoles.

Great news! I was going to buy the PS3 version anyways. I hope the Xbox 360 doesn't get the DLC :)

no extra content but decent price

amazon has it for $60 with a $20 gift card.

Is the exclusive content a special day 1 patch that will let the game run online on PSN, I own both consoles (and a PC and wii) but I'm getting this on the 360 because PSN has been a joke on GTA IV, a joke on Battlefield Bad Company 2 and the biggest joke of all was Fifa 10 on PSN. Sony need to sort out it's online service or multi owners like me when given a choice will not buy the PS3 versions.

How is it a joke? mine works just fine when I play online games.

Please do tell.
CernaML  +   2099d ago
Bad Company 2? Pretty sure it was worse on Xbox Live for those few days. It was always fine for me on the PSN.

Being a owner of both consoles, I'm still getting it on XBOX.

1) I remember reading GTA had issues with the PS3 and PC ports since it was developed on the 360, I want to avoid that.

2)I think the online playerbase will be bigger and last longer on XBOX.

3) More friends getting it on XBOX than PS3. I'll stick to exclusives on the PS3.
Rowsdower  +   2099d ago
i have to agree with you
on the 2nd point.

When I play MAG and Uncharted 2 the multiplayer community is quite small, so small that in both games some multiplayer modes are all but abandoned. I know I'll get disagrees but that does not change the fact that domination in MAG (the 256 player gametype) and the modes besides deathmatch and plunder in Uncharted 2 are all but dead. On the 360 its never hard to find a multiplayer match, even with games no one purchased like Bionic Commando.

I only purchase PS3 exclusives on the PS3, multiplayer multiplat games I choose the 360 since most of my friends own a 360.

i don't know about MAG
but where I am, i've had NO problems with uncharted2 MP on DM or Plunder =/ i have a harder time getting decent people to go on co-op hard, but thats it..
Rowsdower  +   2099d ago
perhaps i was unclear
in uc2 deathmatch and plunder are the only healthy modes.

objectives and ranked, are all but dead

what is your psn id, mine is


i am always up for UC2 coop, the new dlc is awesome in coop arena, highrise with survivor and siege mode is amazing.

Also the post by


is incomprehensible yet he gets agrees, its almost like an abstract poem, you see in it what you what.

Community Online is Irrelevant for both consoles.

Doesn't matter if the community is bigger than the other console. The Community is bigger in both consoles, that you will always play with random people and last longer in both consoles.

This game is different than GTA
Apparently there is no lead console and there were two separate teams working for each console.
sixaxis  +   2099d ago
well, this time with red dead, its developed on ps3, and ported to 360.
peeps  +   2099d ago
i would say i'm surprised at the disagree's but unfortunately not :(

but all valid points lol

in the same way that i'll get ps3 version cus

1) prefer trophies

2) more friends have ps3's and i know a few of them are really excited about this game

GTA4 on ps3 wasn't too bad though tbh but i do think 360 ran a bit smoother
josh14399  +   2099d ago
im getting the ps3 version anyway.
