On the Topic of Westerns or Lack Thereof

4Player-"Red Dead Redemption is easily among my favorite games of all time.

The Xbox Series console don’t run an actual port of the game. The consoles emulate and enhance the 360 version of RDR. The Series S and X could possibly use FPS boost to run RDR at 60 FPS with patching.
