IGN: Where's the PS3 Red Dead Redemption Review?

Some of you may be waiting with much anticipation for Rockstar's next game, Red Dead Redemption. It comes out this week and if you'd like an early verdict on it, make sure you read our review of the Xbox 360 version. Unfortunately. Rockstar was unable to provide us with a copy of the PS3 edition of Red Dead Redemption early and so we've had to delay that review until we get a chance to take it for a spin.

I wonder why they're making 2 different reviews for the game. Aren't they supposed to use the same review for both versions?

BRG90002866d ago

If they received both versions, and they were reasonably similar, they probably would do just one review. Since they haven't played both versions, I agree the responsible thing to do is wait. If any differences are minor, they will probably just copy and paste the Xbox review into the PS3 channel.

HolyOrangeCows2866d ago

"[Update] We have received the PS3 version. The review will be posted just as soon as we've had a chance to put it through the paces"

Watch them go and give it a .5 point reduction for insignificant differences.

Trey_4_life2866d ago

The reason there is no PS3 version is because they are still playing the extra exclusive PS3 content which seems to add a lot more game play time

hassi942865d ago

What an absolute fanboy. An extra ranch area to give like an extra 10 hours + gameplay time. What a joke.

Karlnag32865d ago

couldn't agree more... I'm a playstation fan and even I think that has to be one of the dumbest things I've read on this site.

I also own a 360.

all the PS3 reviews I seen so far have been positive.

WhittO2866d ago

hmmm weird, maybe they still need to polish off the ps3 version before release and didn't want it reflected on reviews so left it out ? lol

rob60212866d ago

yea i was thinking maybe they're pushing for a release day patch to help get the PS3 version optimized..

kaveti66162866d ago

There's no way to do that now. The game went gold weeks ago. And if IGN has to wait for an update to the PS3 version to download before they play it, you can bet your ass they're going to reflect that in their review.

himdeel2866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

...with respect to this game. Mainly because I already paid off my copy and secondly I made up my mind about purchasing this game after seeing the free roam mode. That mode with 7 other pals sold me on this game and it's reason enough for me to play RDR.

The only thing left to decide upon now is if I'm going to jump right into the free roam mode right away or try the SP campaign first. Outside of those thoughts I DO HOPE to NOT feel in ANY way like I did a few days after my GTA4 purchase.

EDIT: What I really would like is another video review now that I'd read the 360 Review of the game. I don't expect any differences in those write ups.

sixaxis2866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

well, update says: "We have received the PS3 version. The review will be posted just as soon as we've had a chance to put it through the paces."

so we will see what they write about it.

Odin7772866d ago

@ Parapraxis I have to say...I have noticed that pattern recently with reviewers. Hopefully its only a coincidence.

pixelsword2865d ago

From that point on, IGN has lost all credibility for me.

hassi942865d ago (Edited 2865d ago )

Commented in wrong bit

yea....something is wierd...and I am buying the PS3 version...I am playing BC2 on Live, so I wanted to balance the online game playing

dgroundwater2866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

So you are jsutifying your purchase on PS3 by randomly letting us know you are currently playing BC2 on Live? Am I supposed to applaud your honesty or facepalm at N4G?

Anyway I wouldn't get too worked up by the news. This doesn't necessary mean development trouble or anything.

divideby02866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

^ I dont justify what I buy to anyone especially those on the net. Its just a comment I made..dont read into it.
I thought I read the PS3 was the lead platform, but not 100% sure

MGRogue20172866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

... Is it just me or is IGN kinda agreeing that the PS3 version is the best version of the game with this article?? :D

Rowsdower2866d ago

the way the article fails to imply anything of that sort leads me to the same conclusion.


aaronisbla2866d ago

first i was thinkin WTF is rowsdower talkin about then i read the rest of ur comment, bubbles

BRG90002866d ago

It's just you. IGN is explicitly saying they haven't played the PS3 version. At least not enough to make that judgement.

rob60212866d ago

How big is the hideout?? is it like a whole other town or what..? If it's a little shack then who knows which is better.

CR-Y-SIS2866d ago

Maybe MS ninjas got to the delivery man?

dc12866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

Funny and out of order... all at the same time! Take a +plus Bub!

bronxgee2865d ago

LOL you the man bubble up

AKS2866d ago

Of the reviews of the PS3 version I've seen, all have been positive. The secrecy about the PS3 version is quite odd. No footage, few reviews, ect.

Christopher2865d ago

There's nothing odd here. In the U.S. media, it's typically the 360 version that is completely reviewed while the PS3, if at all played, is only done a bit to determine any peculiar differences.
