It has already exceeded the total lifetime sales of the original Red Dead Redemption.
I bet 60% or more of these 17 million were sold on PS4
In UK was over 2 to 1, WW is much bigger gap.
Is there a worldwide source for this yet?
Don't know why you pm'd me talking about console sales when this article is talking about RDR2 selling 17 million copies
@Kiwi66 - Yeah he does that, it's almost like he gets off to PS4 sales. Of course, he hides away when you ask him anything. He also doesn't like when someone points out the new Ratchet and Clank was mediocre.
@kiwi Because he leads a sad, empty existence?
Easily 60% i'm sure, probably much higher with the bundles and marketing.
Bro might as well take 99. If you are not satisfied take 101. Once you are on ground... Its celebration time and congratulate developer for the achievement.
I cant rest until it's comfirmed that it's higher than 60%
And it's really only fanboys who would care about that instead of saying well done to the devs on a successful game
No not fanboys. People who like good business practice and games are happy for the PS4
Less idiots to play with if you pick the less popular option.
Hmm... is that why Microsoft was begging for crossplay?
So you're saying that idiots are just fewer in number on Xbox? makes sense given that idiots exist everywhere, and you'd expect more, where there are more people.
Well, when the console outsells the competition by multiples, that's pretty obvious lol. I would say it's probably number 1 selling across Xbox and PS4 right now, and will be on PC as well if it ever gets a version.
Imagine it sold more than console exclusive.... Thats like slap on your face
@shiva You mean a multiplat game by Rockstar of all devs sold more than a platform exclusive? Gasp*
@Sirk Serious question.....do you feel that this game has slapped you on your face? @Shiva Serious question....then wouldn't that be a slap on all console gamers faces since going by the reported numbers, it did the same on all systems? @everyone Biggest slapping on the face to all those publishing execs who want to act like MP is king. Yet another SP game which has proven that SP isn't dead, or complicated, and that its far from dead. It's almost like these SP games are Redeeming the concept of SP games right to exist, especially in the face of some more notable MP games coming up in the red from their initial projections. 2 years in a row for one company to boot.
@ Rain why would that be on gamers... It always is a challenge for the console manufacturer. Its a slap on the console manufacturer that a third party software is selling well than their own no matter how big of a studio they own. @Sunny so if its rockstar we need to to set our targets low cause theres no point beating them even though console companies are big and worth billions more than rockstar...Right hmmm
So that means 60% were playing with soup textures? Look I can talk crap too 😂 I'm definitely happy I got it on the x!
Yeah you and like 5% of the overall Xbox camp. Congratz.
Yes the “soup” textures that was used to describe one game shadow of war by digital foundry and has never been used again besides by fanboys congrats
Probably cause I doubt many bought X just to play it and Xbox One version aint cutting it.
Does it matter which platform it sold the most on?
Im a psfan of course, but this unprovoked crap makes me cringe.
It is pretty pathetic isn't it and really does devalue the majority of comment threads. There are people caught up in these console wars who have children that are behaving better than them, and for what? SMH
I am happy that this game is doing really well and selling great... Regardless of any platform,. I can see it selling more...
who actually cares?
That's fine, I`m glad I`m not one of them. I prefer the best version. And we all know that's on the Xbox One X.
Does it really matter?
"Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present... man not caring." https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I bet you nobody cares
Such a serious game. I love it !!!!
Lol @ the downvotes like wtf?
Well, i’m glad to hear. I know Red Dead Redemption online is coming, but this show how much Single Player still have huge impact for everyone.
That's kind of what happens when publishers make quality SP games. Helps a lot when there are fewer big SP games to choose from, because there ends up being less competition. Also helps when you don't release them at stupid times like Square Enix does...although that's not a problem for R*, because well....it's R*.
and when the promise of an online world in the wild west simmilar to that of the highest selling game in a long time (GTa5) which is what got me in. I bought it now to get use to the controls before that online drops
I can see it getting people buying it for the prospect of the future MP. But I think the vast majority still are buying it because they also want the SP. I'm sure many of them will still play the MP though, because it's not like the two sides don't overlap in many ways. I don't know how many would have brought it just for the MP, since apparently most people who buy GTA buy it for either the SP, or both modes, since they're both considered really good.
People bought red dead for the single player. As it should be because offline single player is king. Red dead online is a side show to the single player portion (which will give the game legs)
Personally I didn't buy RDR2 for single player alone, although I've been playing the hell out of it. Can't wait for RdRO...
While all games matter the drop off from the SP mode will be huge once MP comes online. SP will never die out but it's a drop the bucket compared to multiplayer.
“I don’t think he is trolling. Red Dead Redemption 2 got PS4 marketing deal like early exclusive content and get online mode early. ” you do know that the only thing ps4 gets early (for 30 days lol) is a gun, horse and outfit. You don’t get the online mode early lol
Hard to believe that such a feat is only the second biggest opening in entertainment history
Is GTA5 the first?
Well deserved too, good for them
I'm wondering how many copies were sold & within those copies sold how many realized they should have waited or shouldn't have bought the game at all.
So far only 46% of gamers have completed chapter 2 then it's a big drop off, only 23% have completed chapter 3? I think give it a year and those trophies percentage will point twds alot of gamers not finishing it.
This is pretty common. I forget what podcast it was but they looked at both xbox achievments and PS trophies on games like RDR1, GTA 4, GTA 5 and a few other longer games and found that the achievement you get for getting to the last level or finishing the game was very very low and around the half way point of these long games most people drop off.
The problem of open world fatigue.
Game hasn't been out that long, and Chapter 3 is apparently when the game really opens up more....so it's understandable that it might not have that high of a completion rate yet. If it remains that way, then you have more of an argument....although, it's not uncommon for most games to see big drop offs as the game goes on.
Well I haven't completed chapter 3 yet because I'm taking my time. I have like 30 hours in the game already
I've had the game since night 1 and just now getting to chapter 3. Not everyone is in a rush to complete the main story
Some of us are just taking our time with it!
If that’s the case then why the game is still selling? Surely people would know how “bad” the game is by now(according to you) and stop buying it?
Awww!! Don't cry.
The one who need to stop crying is you. Coming to every RDR2 articles crying about how bad the game is, yet don’t have the ball to sell the game and just move on.
I can cry about the game as much as I want...lol!! You can bypass my comments you know no one's putting a gun to your head to read & respond. Just know I'll continue to be critical of RDR2 unless the game play gets better,know that.
Elda You sure have a hate on for RDR2. I read how disappointed you are every day, I just can't help but wonder why you can't just move on?
Stop putting words in my mouth,I never stated I hate RDR2,just my disappointment.The thing is I can voice my criticism about a game as long as I'm not disrespectful to anyone. This is why this site has different articles so every individual can voice their opinion may one agree or not. I will continue to voice how I feel about this game knowing it's just a game & folks need to stop acting as if RDR2 is their wife or sibling & taking the criticism to heart & acting as if their feelings are hurt.
You could wonder about that for any game
True but I'm talking about the masterpiece RDR2.
Well done, Rockstar! I’m really loving the game & I hope so many others are as well.
Congrats Rockstar and a big thank you to all the fans who helped support this wonderful game.
16 million That's a huge number. Most games don't sell 16 million in lifetime sales. After GTA5 could this be just like it and just keep selling especially after RDR2 online
Just?? What’s a Shame R*
