Major UK retailers have today told CVG that they are running low on PS3 copies of Red Dead Redemption - blaming manufacturing problems and even a sunken cargo ship for a "massive" shortage in the market.
I sold my ps3 last week, because i ran out of student loan, i nearly cried when i posted it.. arrrghhh!! then this game comes out and breaks my heart. give PC release date plox xxx
Its not just the UK. Its here too. Cant find a ps3 copy anywhere. 360 copies are everywhere. I guess they didn't think they were going to sell as much as they could have? Oh well, its your loss Take 2.
the british finally woke up
It COULD be the case that they shipped out a lot fewer copies of the Ps3 version, expecting less.
H.O.C Maybe, but GTAIV sold around the same on each console, so why would Take2 ship less PS3 versions of RDR? You could be right, and if you are right it shows Take2 have crap business acumen.
If you had actually read the article, you would see that this has nothing to do with sales. Manufacturing problems and even a "sunken cargo ship" are the problems. Illiteracy for the fail. Fanboyism for the fail.
It´s happening here in Norway too. There were no PS3 versions, but a ton of 360 ones. I even pre-ordered the PS3 version. God thing it´s Saturday tomorrow
i just got back from gamestation and over 5 ppl were turned away coz the was no more copies of RDR for the ps3... i wonder what R* is doing about this thou.. ps3 owners are buying the game heavily than anticipated
It's not that PS3 owners are buying it more than 360 owners.. they have been selling equally well so far today. The store I'm in got 80 more copies on 360 than it's PS3 counterpart.
That, my friend, is what we call a shortage.
Yeah, this isn't showing extreme PS3 sales, it's showing how much more emphasis R* put on the 360 version over the PS3 with regards to sales potential. Looks like they made a SNAFU.
Well, no matter how you look at it, this is just not good for anyone.
From HMV in the Bullring. Awesome, AWESOME game.
I was not expecting to go to the store and find 360 copies but no PS3 copies....that surprised me... and for some reason my PSN bud list has way and I mean way more playing RDR than my live bud list.. than again BC2 more is playing on my live list than PSN...wierd
I have just as many friends on live as psn but only 2 have this game on 360 while 10 guys have it on ps3! Thats just wierd. I expected more to be playing it on 360.
^ yea... wierd...360 version looks better, but yet it dominated my Live list so far
Not a single person on my friends list is playing RDR for PSN but 9/10 people online last night on live were playing it. Might just be type of people that are on our friends list. The people I have on my PSN list are RL friends who I also have on my live friends list and people I met playing Warhawk/Resistance. People I have on my live friends lists are RL friends and people I met playing Halo 2/ 3, Gears, COD online. Different tastes based off the games that are being played?
Yeah i agreed with that, yesterday when i came from work and 8/10 of my friends were playing RDR,one of them send me a message telling me when i will get RDR but my pay day its the next friday :(
Problems with manufacture wow this is great mmmm.They know ps3 version is selling like hot cakes.
sunken cargo? ill go swimming for my copy then
Apparently had quite alot of problems with suppliers etc for the PS3 version and I'm guessing manufacturing problems is why. Sucks if you only have the one platform :(
Why? It's not as if the game has stopped selling. There will be more.
got mine this morning on the way to work and a free blu - ray
Huh,so i probably won't see my game so soon ://
Im getting mine this afternoon. Well, after reading this I HOPE I'm getting it this afternoon :(
My day today Argos -- No copies were stocked for ps3 or in surrounding branches Currys -- No stock at all for either version Comet -- No stock at all for either version Morrisons Superstore -- Only stocked 2 copies 1 for each console My local Blockbuster video -- Only stock of 360 available did not receive ps3 version Asda -- We are not selling this product in store Tesco -- Limited copies of PS3 version sold out last night (24hr shop) HMV -- Finally got the last copy for 39.99
Hmm, this is discouraging. I hope I'm lucky, when I go to the shops.
HMV in harrow are stocked deep, but if you don’t live near harrow then this is completely useless
as of 30 mins ago, HMV oxford street has it, i think i even saw some limited edition copies too. They didnt have anymore 360 limited editions left which is what i was after.
Best of luck my friend, i hope you can snaffle yourself a copy.
why don't you guys buy it on internet?i buy my games mostly from play.com, did the same with RDR(pre-ordered) on monday and got it yesterday:)no fuss,no shortage,delivered to your home.i use amazon sometimes as well,but i prefer play.
Try BlockBuster video mate, there normally an untapped source, there always my last resort
a sunken cargo ship? is that a joke
