GOONL!NE writes: Analyst Doug Creutz of Cowan and Company is predicting that Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption will sell 4 million copies worldwide in it’s first year.
Everyone that I know that has a PS3 or a Xbox360 is getting this. It will be a must own for anyone who owns these consoles. Wow!....I really can't wait till tomorrow. I got my cowboy boots with spurs ready!
The only way I see this game not selling is if someone doesn't like westerns that much. Other than that, anyone who likes a good game will probably pick this up! But you know the usual always happens... Someone who is used to playing single player games will love the game and feel like a god, then will go online and realize they are crap and then go around bashing the game every chance they get! Anyway, i'll get it and love it and will have alot of fun with it!
more than that.
anyway, although it isnt hyped as much as GTA Iv, it does have pretty strong advertising, i think it will achieve 4 million with first 2 months. especially considering forexample AC2 did 6 million with a bit under 3 month (was it??), which doesnt have multiplayer.
Not everyone is a fond of westerns and it is new, not yet established IP. I'll be putting a nun on the tracks no doubt though. Can't wait for my dasterdly trophy! :D
... but I'm just not ... interested in RDR. IS there something wrong with me? :'(
Get it, play it, then tell me that :).
Same for me, I'm not digging the whole "wild wild west" thing at all.Maybe because I'm European...I dont know. Moreoevr Im not a sandbox lover. I prefer more linear, story driven games.
Oh like Call Of Duty and Halo *shakes Head*
So ... Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 aren't linear, story driven games? Your hypocrisy is showing. *shakes Head*
First of all... why the fanboyish response ??? Its a mulltiplat game in case you forgot. Maybe all you have in May is RDR but that doesnt make it exclusive lmao. I prefer jrpg's, adventure games, solo FPS's like Bioshock, Half Life etc. I'm a solo gamer, dont care too much about online and stuff. And sandbox games just arent my thing, too big, too much freedom, resulting in not very present stories.
CliZZ, when the hell did i (or anyone) mention KillZone 2 or Uncharted 2? (i dont even like the Uncharted series all that much) so your comment is void And Cold, DONT u bloody well start acting all innocent all of a sudden, 90% of what you say has sum sort of fanboyish remark in it to some degree My point is what more could you want from a game?, Red Dead looks like it has the lot imo Half decent story (meaning i wont be skipping the cut-scenes like i did in GTAIV) Interesting characters with believable voice-overs Then theres the length of the game, multiplayer etc, it all equals WIN, even if you where to buy it second hand i dont think you should miss it
You're an idiot. Here let me break it down for you, using your own words. "when the hell did i (or anyone) mention KillZone 2 or Uncharted 2?" When the Hell did I (or anyone) mention Call of Duty or Halo? Cold said he agreed with me and stated that he preferred linear, story-driven games. Then you, being the tool you are, come in trying to stir up the water talking about games that aren't even a part of the discussion. So please, cut the "I didn't do nothing" crap. You started this. And the only who's voided themselves is YOU.
you dont know how the west was won then. great history...
On top of that I am just sick of all the either futuristic or WW1 settings....It will be a refreshing change for me.
Well, A LITTLE bit early to predict numbers don't you think...lol... Pro's...Rockstar developer, open world...GTA clone...GTA sold well... Con's...Western...Open world...Third person shooter...GTA clone... Well I suspect it will sell well in North America...Not sure about anywhere else...Europe buys games that start with "Fi" and end in "Fa"...just saying...tho AW is at the top of the charts after 2 days...
My guess is it will sell around 10mil units between both systems. I could totally be an Analyst!
I say it can sell between 5 and 6 million. Now pay me to be an analyst.
i also dont think we will see a RDR2 this console cycle as R* will now be thinking they can almost perfect the next gta after the success of RDR!!!
