Take-Two videogame 'Red Dead' makes record opening weekend sales

Take-Two videogame 'Red Dead' makes record opening weekend sales

The actual top dog when it comes to being the highest grossing entertainment launch goes to another game developed by Rockstar however; Grand Theft Auto V, which opened with an absurd $1 billion in its first three days.

Released on Friday to critical acclaim, Red Dead Redemption 2's opening weekend eclipses the $640.5m of Avengers: Infinity War, which is the highest-grossing of any film in history.

The sequel to 2010's original (or the closing of a trilogy if you count Red Dead Revolver), Rockstar have gone all out creating one of the most stunning, lifelike, realistic and shockingly visceral depictions of the wild west in entertainment history.

Using the fences will be the best way to make money in Red Dead Redemption 2 as these fences will also buy all of the stolen items you come across throughout the game.

The game is also now the highest ever scored game on the PlayStation 4, with an average score of 97 on Metacritic, and the same on Xbox One.

Shares of Take-Two were up 7% this year. Rockstar is planning to release an online multiplayer mode for RDR2, Red Dead Online, this November. The publisher no doubt has high aspirations for Red Dead Online, but as an online experience it's still an unproven entity.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is rated M for Mature by the ESRB. In the list, it comes right after Grand Theft Auto V, which was released in 2013. "So the real question is what will consumer response to Red Dead Online be, as that will determine the strength of what will nearly certainly be an extended sales curve", Piscatella continued.

· "Red Dead Redemption 2 is Rockstar's best game; a grand, magnificent adventure that's vast yet intimate".

Video game stories from other sites on the web. Piscatella does not buy into that view.

The game launched to reviews heaping praise on the ambitious title, but it appears fans were already convinced to purchase it, as it broke the records for most pre-ordered full game ever on PlayStation Network. The market is clearly there for it, and from what I've seen, it doesn't abuse the freemium model where only those with the deepest pockets can succeed in the game.
