Red Dead Redemption 2 Announced for Consoles

A couple of days of teasing now culminate in an official announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2, saying the wild west shooter sequel is coming next fall. This is bad news for those hoping this announcement would somehow involve the PC platform, as they only say this is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. They say: "An epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland, the game's vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience." This multiplayer news corresponds to word that Rockstar registered a domain for Red Dead Online. They promise a reveal trailer on Thursday, so keep an eye on the Red Dead Redemption 2 website.

Yeah, my post wasn't meant as a rant at you personally. It just surprises me some folks will write off a company when a game doesn't come to their platform of choice. Exclusives are nothing new...
It's a bit easier at least for me with rockstar, since their obviously a bunch of jerks. Not only the way they handle PC ports, but GTA is a good example too. Their stories suck because they give no option to be neutral or good. They force being a villain on players. I'm not saying take away all the villain aspects but not even offering a neutral, that's complete dickishness. Protest

While I don't have any scientific info, to me it seems like exclusives are slowly dying.

Great Troll Rockstar!

Maybe the PC will get a version with the "updated" version that ships on the next set of consoles like we got with GTAV? The wait was worth it yeah?

Hope the MP expands on what RDR had. Had some great times hunting bears and shooting gangs of goons with family in the original.

Why do you automatically assume it won't be?

Sorry, went code black and then into a fit of rage when I focused on the line that said "Red Dead Online"......If it is more of the same from RDR, I am all in. Not interested at all in the online.

I've owned a few consoles over the years, hell I started gaming on arcades, and my first home platform was the NES all those years ago. Still once I got my first true PC (I think it was a 486) I remained on the PC and to be honest, there was no more going back for me. Yes I admit some games are better on the console, things like driving games (if you don't own a wheel) and beat em ups (if you don't own a gamepad or two) are no brainers on consoles. nin and the like have said why limit yourself to just one platform? Well its like this, I don't play beat em ups, and my driving games work just fine on the PC. So why should I buy a box that sits gathering dust, just so I can play a few "really good" exclusive games every few years or so using a control scheme that makes me feel like a disabled person, on hardware that can barely keep up with the software that runs on it??

For all the vitriol it doesn't matter in the end. Every time GTA hits the PC everyone is all over like a fat kid on cake anyway.

A child-like part of me hopes they just say "oh, we need another few months for PC".

But right now I'm just bitter. Even if it is just PR spiel and a PC version is coming, it's a scumbag play.

And if there isn't at all, whoever made the call needs to get gout. On the tip of their pecker. PS4 /or/ Xbox exclusive I could understand, because that gives perks; but there's no reason to exclude PC in this day and age if you're already going for both those two, technical or otherwise.

It's no rocket science. R* games are the living proof that the PC community brings in some big bucks and R* has always been great at giving a zero fuck about it until they do (GTAV PC felt like a miracle). I'd like to hear their reason not to release a PC version other than "We like to milk!".
It's like an actual musical star not coming to his European fans because why the hassle if he can grow fat and rich in Amerkca as well. It's not charming.

"Then buy a console" is a no go for some of us. I, for one, play games for the immersion. To escape from reality now and then. Consoles with their controllers cannot give that to me. I need more than two thumbs and two fingers to get a sense that I'm playing the game and not the other way around.

As I've said before, I'm a gamer, and I don't limit myself to one platform. If it's awesome, I want to play it...

In addition to a pc, I've owned a 2600, a nes, a genesis, a ps1, an atari jaguar (egad!), a dreamcast, a gamecube, a 360, a GBA, and a DS.

Why limit yourself to one platform?


I've had a 2600, NES, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, SNES, Genesis, Dreamcast, GBA, Gamecube, 360, and PS3. I've also had, at times, roommates with an N64, PS2, and Xbox, and therefore owned games for each of them, too. I may be forgetting some but don't think so.

Some of those I really hardly touched. The GBA came with the GC I bought on eBay and got maybe 10 hours of use. The PS2 was used solely for Katamari Damcy, the PS3 basically only for the Naughty Dog games, the Genesis mostly for Sonic 2 and Road Rash, and the DC I bought after it was discontinued and actually really struggled to get into.

But there are tens of thousands of hours into those combined, particularly the NES, GC and 360. Way too many great games (at the time) for them.

Nice! I'm of the opinion consoles are well worth owning even if you only play a couple games for that platform. As a gamer from the arcade days, paying $200 for a console and $50 for a couple games you like is easily worth the price of admission.

I've had an Intellivision, NES, SNES, Sega Saturn, N64, PS One (the small white version of the PS1), Gamecube, Xbox (original), and PSP, all acquired in that order. My next console will probably be Nintendo's NX, just so I can play the best possible version of Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild.

PS4 is looking mighty enticing as well, but would only get used for a couple games realistically, including RDR2. Do the original RDRevolver and RDRedemption play on PS4?

I guess Revolver was on PS2 so I could emulate it on PCSX2, but I'm a big fan of playing the originals, on the mediums they were intended. I even have a CRT still for the older systems because of the lack of scanlines and such on LCD's, which were very much taken in account for in the original games from the generations where that kind of display was still relevant.

Revolver - yes Redemption -no, you most definitely would want to play all the uncharted games too and they have all been ported to the PS4.

I really don't care what kind of game anyone plays or what platform, just seemed funny to tease you about it. Personally, I don't believe in proprietary crap like console only any more than PC only. The only real world downside is getting sales keeps douches like rockstar from developing for all platforms.

I've only ever tried a console a couple of times. Once for original Halo at release(lazy aiming was nauseating), Boxing (beat a veteran, first time I played cause I blocked and he didn't) and some sexy golf game. The mechanics are too prehistoric for me to really enjoy myself. I was weened on Coop and deathmatch lan, from back in the serial cable and termination resistor days.
