Red Dead Redemption 2 maks a deal with Sony

Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer left a lot to be desired yesterday, if only for the fact that it didn’t really say much at all about the game. It looks gorgeous, and probably will end up being a sequel (or prequel?) of sorts, but beyond that we know about the same regarding the western open-world game than we did earlier this week. Sony, on the other hand, has been working hard to ensure that when we find out about a lot of the game’s content, most of it will be tied to a PS4 deal.

It was going to be either or, but it seems Sony have locked down some exclusive online content for the PS4 when Red Dead Redemption launches next year. A new blog post on the PlayStation website explains that certain online content will come to the PS4 first, ahead of the Xbox One. Since details about any content are scarce, the extent (or importance of the content) isn’t known, but it’s a big snag for Sony nonetheless.

Sony also revealed that they’re bringing the first red Dead Redemption to PC – sort of. The initial Redemption title from Rockstar will be making its way to the PlayStation Now streaming service, which will allow the game to be played on both PS4 and PC. If you have the bandwidth that is, which is currently not an option for most locally. Especially given the lack of region support.

But it does show that Sony is making a big effort to ensure that players know PS4 is the home of Red Dead redemption. Xbox One already has backwards compatibility with the first title, so it’s not confusing to see Sony scramble for a solution to this. At the end of the day, it’s all about whether Red Dead Redemption 2 is good or not. A PS4 or Xbox One won’t change that.

    They should have gone the Bethesda route. Refine the game more and announce at next year’s E3

      Firstly the game is a year away and we’ve only seen this trailer so how can you question whether it isn’t refined. Secondly Rockstar rarely if ever announce anything at E3 and it hasn’t hurt them yet. Thirdly if Fallout 4’s graphics are your definition of refined then I think I’ll stock with the way Rockstar do things thanks.

        Touchy much? It’s Friday, relax.
        I will be getting this, I was just underwhelmed by what they hyped to show.

        O, and if you play F4 (or any other game) for graphics then you’re missing the point that games should be enjoyed, not just a new art medium.

    I’m sure this game will be great, but still choo choo motherf******! I hope the year long (possibly longer) ride doesn’t end up spoiling the game for you.

    Just going to throw this out there. This is the worst possible time to throw out an Open world game. Many people I know are just as tired as me of having open world shoved in our faces.I am sure there is somewhere you can go check the completion percentages of games like Fallout 4 and Witcher 3 and GTA5.

      I love open world games and they will always be the type of game I go back too most, but it’s starting to become too much,

      I dunno. If a game says “Open World” I get excited. Feels like I get my money’s worth.

        Don’t get me wrong I still love Sandbox games. Just open world is an issue. If you are going to add story don’t hamper said story with tones of side quests.

        This pic explains it best.

            Yeah? I kinda never knew about that. Sorry. I am the kind of guy that avoids hype. Trouble? Not so much…

      Just as many, however, absolutely love Open World. Like myself.

        I used to love Open World, then I took a Skyrim to the knee. 😛

        If I want open world I would rather play a sandbox game. In fact I keep switching between 7Days to Die and KSP a lot lately.

        But you can even see from sales data what people want. Doom had much better sales than Fallout.

          Oh yea. They’re also tons of fun.
          Doom also has me interested but I’ve always been a bit partial to games like Fallout that gives you complete freedom with no time limit or restrictions on your gameplay. I get way more immersed in it.

      They should enjoy it, I’ll keep myself busy with my backlog until I can buy the complete game at a discount.

      I must be getting old.
