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 :(

VoicesInMyHead2233d ago

Fanboys maybe? Gamespy's a joke IMO

Ju2233d ago

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 Kaim2233d ago

Why would I care if you get it on PS3 or not, I'm warning fellow PS3 owners about the Gamespy issue http://img156.imageshack.us...

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.

xabmol2233d ago

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.

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 Cage2233d ago

man i gotta get the ps3 version.

Brewski0072232d 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.

ExgamerLegends22233d ago

I'm like Sony I dont pay for exclusive content.

corneliuscrust2233d ago

what deals go on behind closed doors. None of us do

dtalon32233d ago

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.

erathaol2233d ago (Edited 2233d 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.

Spydiggity2233d ago

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.

Crazyglues2233d ago (Edited 2233d 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.

Croaker2233d ago

Wrong. There is in fact, a LE in the U.S. I know of for sure. As I have it pre-ordered at GameStop, which was a free upgrade.

teedogg802233d ago (Edited 2233d ago )

@Crazyglues
Don't know where you get your information but the US is indeed getting the limited edition. http://www.gamestop.com/Cat...

Edit: Limited...special, who cares?

caliblue152233d ago

The gamestop edition is a Special Edition, not a Limited Edition.

caliblue152233d ago

Hey teedog, good reading skills.

What does it say under Red Dead Redemption....

Trey_4_life2233d ago

Lmao @ you guys failing to tell the difference between limited and special editions, it says it right on the box, DOH!

Crazyglues2233d ago (Edited 2233d ago )

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 Amazon.com

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

Best-Buy - THE WAR HORSE
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.

GameStop - THE DEADLY ASSASSIN OUTFIT
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.

Amazon.com - 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....

RedDevils2233d ago

why you care so much about the disagree lol it's really just base on people opinion

Crazyglues2233d ago (Edited 2233d ago )

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?

BRG90002233d ago

I just disagreed because you were ending all your posts with an annoying ASCII PS3 logo...

ThanatosDMC2233d ago

Just a tip. If you complain about disagrees, people would want to press disagree with your comments more because it's funny.

Mo0eY2233d ago

Another tip: Bringing up a tip about people hitting disagrees because it's funny will earn you disagrees.

See exclusive stuff for ps3 is free as Sony didn't pay a dime for it exclusive stuff for 360 usually means paid because MS had to pay for the exclusivity.

WMW2233d ago (Edited 2233d ago )

sorry misread your comment.

corneliuscrust2233d ago

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.

WildArmed2233d ago

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.

Nitrowolf22233d ago

well Can't be sure about Sony not paying them, But at least they don't go on out onto a stage saying "We bought exclusive contents" only to be timed Exclusive

You have to read the article to find out, appearently that's too challenging for some people...

isa_scout2233d ago

I f half the people on here would read the article instead of asking if it was free they would already know the answer and instead everyone could just comment on how mega-awesome this game is going to be...Duh

himdeel2233d ago

...to sway me personally to one system. That being said free is nice...most of the time.

waltercross2233d ago

2 outfits?

"The exclusive content will be Solomon's Folly Gang Hideout and Walton Gang Outfit -- according to the retail box."

Sounds like 1 Outfit and a new area?

Sarcasm2233d ago

Reading comprehension.

himdeel2233d ago (Edited 2233d ago )

..and the personal attacks begin. Oh well I stick to my statement it's not enough to sway me. But I guess this game and Batman say otherwise.

xabmol2233d ago

Area <-- He said area.

secksi-killer2233d ago

im getting this for my 360 instead of for my ps3 because all my pals are getting the 360 version.

not really a major issue imo

xabmol2233d ago

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...

mastiffchild2233d 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.

kunit22c2233d ago (Edited 2233d 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.
edit----
@ 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.

vhero2233d 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-killer2233d 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?

SPARTANVI2233d ago (Edited 2233d 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.

creatchee2233d ago

Seals the deal for me - I was torn over which version to get.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2233d ago

''The content is included for free and packed in the game's casing.''

The answer is in the article.

FanboysWillHateMe2233d ago

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.

niceguywii602233d 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.

ThanatosDMC2233d ago (Edited 2233d ago )

I swear somebody on N4G just posted a pic of the RDR box last night and wow... it spread all over and it even became an article. HAHAHA! I wonder if article writers keep their eyes on N4G... i guess so cuz i mean, HHG frequents the site.

Steffl3r2233d ago

Wish we could get tat on the 360, it'll be around later probably, this game looks like one they'll support DLC but i'll probably be paid.. Honestly though I'd prefer it on my 360 still over my PS3 just for Voice Chat when I play online with my posse

HolyOrangeCows2233d ago

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

Can the same be said with a more mainstream Rockstar game? We'll have to wait and see.

PS3and4_HAS_GAMES2233d ago

IN THE ARTICLE IT SAYS ITS FREE

playstation_clan2233d ago (Edited 2233d ago )

#1 wtf are u talking about
#2 good for 360
#3 my live membership is up so RDR is being bought on ps3
#4 how that 50mil on GTA looked, thats your money being spent
#5 (nelson laugh) HA HA

Lucreto2233d ago (Edited 2233d ago )

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.

BeaArthur2233d ago

I think it's just a difference in the promotion philosophy of MS and Sony. Sony seems to have more of a restrained approach while MS will make sure everyone and their mother knows.

TheHater2233d ago (Edited 2233d ago )

I am sure SONY did play $75 million for this content :)

@wicko
Hell yea.....I mean HELL NO!!!
And come on, have a sense of humor :)

RDR PS3 is a must get 4 moi!

Quality games all the time from PS3!

Lou-Cipher2233d ago

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.

Elven62233d 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.
