Cynamite.com: "The Xbox 360 version of Red Dead Redemption is available everywhere in Germany, but the PS3 version is sold out by many retailers, for example Amazon. The prices are rising."
Perhaps cause they don't have a 360? I play RDR on PS3 and I don't have a problem with graphics.
If u have only one system it doesn't matter. If u have both, it depends if u like the "crispy" look of the 360 or the "blurry" look of the PS3
and I guess most people in the WORLD only have one console so neotom's point stands if you have one console (which most people have) who the hell cares? this isn't about quality of the game its about quality of a console and who prefers which console.
Graphics are the least we have to worry about. Btw, does anyone know if you can no longer get the Red Dead Rockstar Trophy/Achievement after June?
NO teh shortages are teh excusors! Stupid xbox fanboys.
Maybe because because they don't want to risk RRoD-ing their 360?
I think it really depends on your TV as well. I have a 2 year old Samsung LCD and it looks blurry and washed out but on my friend's new LG LD650, it looks absolutely amazing, its crisp, the colors really pop out, its not at all blurry and it makes the game look like a ps2 game on my TV.
I've looked at Amazon and the PS3 version is still in stock. It's the Xbox 360 version that's sold out and will get more stock on May 3rd..
they're BOTH in stock for what they show. And I just bought a ps3 copy a moment ago
That's interesting, and I was referring to Amazon UK. :)
Yes it is... What are you talking about. Its on Amazon UK right now
Didn't ship enough copies of the PS3 version. Only D1 sales were sourced. When I bought it they only had one PS3 copy left, but tonnes of 360 and said that they didn't get enough copies, expecting more later in the week.
Im sorry but you must have mistaken you're opinion as fact, There are 3 differences between the Xbox version and PS3 version. 1. PS3 version has a lower resolution, but to be honest I play the PS3 version and it looks a lot better than most games at 720p so I don't think it makes a lot of difference; 2. PS3 version has Exclusive content, I beleive it's an extra hideout and outfit but correct me if i'm wrong; 3. PS3 version has mandatory 600MB install, but thats not really a problem, Fallout 3 takes up 6GB So really both version are equal, please keep your fanboy opinion to yourself.
http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... "So, we're just left with the matter of the final recommendation. We've demonstrated conclusively that the Xbox 360 version of Red Dead Redemption possesses higher resolution, improved levels of detail, noticeably superior performance in-game and fewer jaggies owing to a more consistently applied anti-aliasing solution that doesn't blur the image. Shadows are generally sharper, and of better quality (particularly on the characters' self-shadows)."
who cares ps3 gets agent the xbox 360 wont be seeing it and wont be holding the ps3 back
Who cares? if you have both systems fine, but who will buy a 360 just because RDR Looks better on it? besides, I thought Graphics and textures don't matter? everytime a PS3 exclusive hits all I see is "It's not about graphics but gameplay" and now It's about Graphics? make up your minds! your confusing me. Besides, GOW3 will eat RDR up graphically anyways, I just got GOW3, It's off the hook!.
didnt ship enough copies of the PS3 version in the first place
really? go feed the chickens Ed and quit drinking that petrol you can't do research from viable sources to save your life got to love 360 owners DYING to damage control this =P "bu-bu its inferiorz! =( it should be better on MY toy" DAMN KIDS, GO BACK TO SCHOOL
The technical analysis is pretty conclusive: if you've got the choice of buying the game for either console, Xbox 360 is the version of Red Dead you should buy....whats your problem with that ?. ive got both consoles and so always enjoy the best versions. I can only imagine the shit the 360 owners would have got if it was the other way round.
The very liable Sonydefenseforce.com is gone so there goes some viable source for liable comparison. LOL Just because X360 won like straight 25 rounds of face-off on Eurogamer, now they are not liable, LOL. You know you are doing fine when the diagrees are loaded. DAMN 12 YEAR OLD KIDS, START MAKING SENSE, you might get a GED someday from SDF HIGH. Gotta love N4G.
You lose a bubble for linking to eurogamer..
And another one... sourcing Eurogamer lol Anywho I went with the PS3 version because of the extra content. It's my preference. Well that and that I much prefer my PS3 controller to 360 for Rockstars titles, what with the LB and RB buttons feeling cheap on 360.
Where idiots like SDF Repellent deride trolls but at the same time completely act like one.
lol where were you hiding when the 360 gets a sub-HD version of FF13? You bots must have selective memories - Alan Wake, SC:C and FF13 , 3 sub-HD games in a space of a few months and you guys still wanna start an argument over resolution??? "Just because X360 won like straight 25 rounds of face-off on Eurogamer, now they are not liable," You deserve to get bubble-raped for spreading misinformation
Germany isn't much into 360, or consoles. Most are probably holding out for the superior PC version that will come out in a while, just like GTA4.
Europe in general isn't into Crapbox.
That's a bold statement..
I'm European, I can confirm that... USA is Microsoft land, the rest of the world is more into the PlayStation brand...
Because in the UK, Red Dead Redemption is selling like Hot Cakes for the X360 with like 65% of the the total sale. I guess UK does not count as part of Europe.
That is funny because on Friday and Saturday I couldn't get PS3 version anywhere. Found like last few copies in a GameStation miles away (all that because my preorder hasn't arrived on time). And the shelves were full of X360 versions everywhere.. It's a bit weird.. You would think that UK prefers X360, from sales figures or when you enter any given GAME store or similiar (most of them packed with X360 games and a smaller PS3 corner). But out of all my friends here there's like one or two Xbox owners and like 30 or more who have PS3... I guess I hang out with people with similiar taste :P
Well I went to GAME and picked up RDR and there was around 6 copies left in the store. Looks like it is selling nicely on the PS3.
Well I guess I'm lucky that I already have mine.
my friend had to go to four different stores to find his copy of RDR for the ps3. none of the gamestops had it, after going to 2 different wal-marts, he was finally able to grab one, and that store only had 2 copies.
Let the 360 fanboys have this one.. If it makes them feel better about themselves knowing they got a version of a multiplat game that has a few more shadows and grass blades then so be it.. I mean afterall, the 360 owners dont really have any real games coming out in the near future (ofcourse other than Halo and Fable) so if the insecure 360 fanboys feel better because they can brag about slightly higher grass textures, then let them have it. (Goes back playing Modnation racers, wait Nevermind still need to beat GOW3, crap on 2nd thought Im very close to level 20 on MAG, then again i probably should beat Heavy Rain since im near the end, although beating Uncharted 2 on crushing does sound good also) Oh im sorry, i got carried away.. Let me ask the 360 fanboys opinion, what game should i go play now? I just have so many of these PS3 exclusives that i need to finish stuff in i cant make up my mind! any suggestion guys?
Did you write this post while waiting for your next race to start on Modnation.yawn is it ready yet
"Oh im sorry, i got carried away.. Let me ask the 360 fanboys opinion, what game should i go play now? I just have so many of these PS3 exclusives that i need to finish stuff in i cant make up my mind! any suggestion guys?" I don't know about you, but I already played and finished GOW3, Heavy Rain, and Uncharted 2. Also, I also played and completed Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, currently playing Alan Wake and enjoying the great X360 version of RDR. What is taking you so long to beat a single player game like GOW3 and Heavy Rain? Too much time trolling than playing perhaps. LOL Oh, X360 owners like myself are preparing for Crackdown 2 in July. What will you buy for your PS3 in the summer?
i smell butt hurt and lets not forget all the trouble you people were making over the final fantasy 13 comparisons
no matter what console you play it on. Its funny here 360 and PS3 gamers both get to play a GOTY contender on their respective consoles. Yet instead of talking about the game you find what you find in this comment section. Its amazing that this bickering has gone on for so long. To Ivan Drago IV: I'm not a fanboy but I think you should beat Heavy Rain 1st, then GOW3, wait for the new MAG update and play Modnation Racers, as far as beating Uncharted 2 on crushing thats a choice between you and your God.
Beat Uncharted on Crushing!! XD
Typical flame bait...
Well, they did cancel Hitler's LIVE account. :D Pity they're taking those vids down, they were pretty funny.
It's not sold out because of a significant sale difference between the platforms but because of a manufacturing problem affecting the PS3 versions in Europe meaning everywhere got low stock initially.
And i like the 'inferior version' mucho!
That's why I pre-ordered mine. I knew this was going to happen.
They said that RD Redemption PS3 is sold out. I went to a shop and they said that RD Redemption 360 is sold out. That deserves a scratch on the head for confusion.
i've been playing this on 360 (did want PS3 version but..) its an excellent game but its also one of the most bugged out games too, horses dissapearing, main character glitching into walls and hills, bounty's ive captured and hog-tied dissapearing into the floor, and double people appearing on the same spot. and that's just a few one made the whole screen go fuzzy lol. excellent game tho (still think the horse controls are way too complicated)
You steer direction and tap X/A respectively to increase speed. It's really very, very simple.
compared to some other westerns where you use analog to control how fast you trot (tilt forward a little to go slow push forward to go faster) that would of been better than tapping A/x to go different speeds and r1/RB to stop and Y/triangle to get on and off the horse. just think it could of been better.
I tried to buy a copy of Red Dead Redemption for my PS3 from the main GAME store in Oxford Street in central London, and they were sold out but, they still had 360 versions in stock. An employee told me they had sold out the PS3 version in all the GAME stores across London. I stupidly did not pre-order it like I did with GTA 4 when it came out 2 years ago. The game is very good, I'm really enjoying it so far. The map is big, and the natural environments are so realistic and vast. I love the wide variety of activities you can do, and the storyline is looking very interesting as I play along further into the game. I really like the fact that you a great real of random activity (many dangerous ones) on your encounters, whether it's with humans or animals. I recently had one where I was travelling through the forests up in the mountains just to have a look around, and a stranded passer-by asked me for help and before I knew it he knocked me off my horse and galloped off with it! I called my horse back with my special whistle-call and then I chased him down on horseback and I shot him dead. Then as I bent down to loot his body, I heard a screaming growl. Right after that got attacked a by cougar that came out prowling out of the woods and it attacked and killed my horse! I shot the cougar once and it ran away downhill into the woods on the other side. Just as I was trying to see if I could revive my horse (which I could not), another cougar leaped out of nowhere and killed me with two swipes! Those damn cougars! It's brilliant stuff!I definitely recommend this game is something different but very good aswell. The PS3 version is just fine and looks amazing. Dont listen to any bullsh*t comparisons. The sub-HD rumors have never even been confirmed, so dont listen to that crap either. It's brilliant.
And as long as YOUR happy with your game nothing else matters. However it's not Bullshit, the 360 version is alot better and untill you see them side by side like they are in our local game store, you wont ever notice. But when you do actually see them together, there's no doubt, you'd have to be blind not to notice the difference in quality.
You said this earlier, if one scrolls up: " The technical analysis is pretty conclusive: if you've got the choice of buying the game for either console, Xbox 360 is the version of Red Dead you should buy....whats your problem with that ?. ive got both consoles and so always enjoy the best versions. I can only imagine the shit the 360 owners would have got if it was the other way round. " And now you are telling me: " Glad your enjoying it. And as long as YOUR happy with your game nothing else matters. However it's not Bullshit, the 360 version is alot better and untill you see them side by side like they are in our local game store, you wont ever notice. But when you do actually see them together, there's no doubt, you'd have to be blind not to notice the difference in quality." Now listening to you, it clearly seems like you are a 360 fanboy or supporter. You view would obviously be biased and therefore you would say all these things to put the 360 version on top. There is nothing wrong with that, I respect the fact that you are a fan of a particular brand of console. But you cannot possibly expect me to see your view as unbiased. Listen I did not say anything bad about the 360 version - I'm sure it looks great. All'm just saying is that the rumors and stories about the PS3 version looking poor and blurry in sub-HD is complete and utter rubbish. If I had easily believed all these 360-biased PS3-haters bashing the PS3 version just as easily as you want me to believe you, I may not have even bought the game. There is no conclusive or definitive proof that the PS3 version sub-HD. To me that would mean an official statement from Rockstar confirming this. Like I said, the PS3 version looks brilliant and it plays brilliant and it's a native 720p like it says on the back of the box until Rockstar says otherwise. If no one can show me an official statement from Rockstar proving the PS3 version of Red Dead is sub-HD, just simply dont bother to try and convince me. I have the game and it certainly does not look sub-HD to me at all.
yeah i got caught out first time when a woman called me over she was standing in front of a wagon then all these bandits jumped out and shot me down lol. those cougars are B'stards they keep killing my horses managed to kill two of the buggers tho. im no good at the horseshoe game thats hard (maybe because i didnt take notice of the instructions), i always end up throwing it at my feet. yeah this game has one of the best gaming worlds created IMO better than GTA4.
I bought the PS3 version and I am surprised that there are at least 3x the amount playing RDR on PSN than my Live list.....I have yet to see as many on Live playing RDR,,,,conversely more on my Live list are playing BC2 than on my PSN list
It's good to see the game doing well.
in my country(denmark). the local game store told me that the pre orders for ps3 was over the top(xbox 50 and ps3 150) this is crazy, i really what this game, but i guess i have to wait till next week!
ive got both consoles(need proof? i dont care) and i got a western rockstar sandbox game on the ps3 cause thats where it belongs
Makes sense...when I was buying Alan Wake at Bestbuy there were 3 women in front of me buying RDR, all PS3 versions.
