"Red Dead Redemption 2 sold-in more units in its first 8 days than the original blockbuster Red Dead Redemption sold in its first 8 years and, as of today, the title has sold-in over 17 million units worldwide."

Pathetic numbers I must say. It turns out people were just overhyping it all along and cowboys have no mainstream appeal. Clearly not as big as CoD or AssCreed!

shit. that's a lot.

sales are going to slow done huge though after most of those people got burned. i see it selling maybe 20-25million lifetime. that isn't bad.

I made a bet with quackknight pokemon will outsell xbox/ps4 combined on switch alone. This is going to be tough. :P

although quack left so i get to keep me money :o

Rockstar picked the right name for their studio.

Big hits like this are great for gaming and the industry.

I heard that having only multi-platform games are bad because it would eliminate competition yet you have games like this that dominate any exclusive on the PS4 or Xbox. Games compete with games. :)

Only 17 Million? And it’s been over a week since release?

That is pathetic.

GTAV has 100 Million sold.

Rockstar might as well close down their studios.

What an absolute disgrace, 17mill is not even worth writing home about.

Rookstar needs to close down their gaming department and stick with GTA.

After these abysmal sales they'll shut down and we won't get a GTA VI at all. They'll be buried next to Midway and Acclaim.

True, but who cares we still have COD and Ass-cream-Bioware masseffect clone.

All we need is Ubisoft and their excellent made games.

It's no GTAV that's for sure but those are impressive numbers.

I wonder what the console split was like? If it's anything like the UK's then Sony and Rockstar just made a load of money.

Yea, Sony and R* are laughing to the bank. If they do similar bundles this Black Friday with PS4 for $199, lawd have mercy!

He's salty that the Switch isn't getting it.

He's an illogical Nintendo fanboy. The only people that got burned are people with the Switch as their only platform this holiday missing out on a masterpiece like RDR2.

Yep, very impressive sales indeed. I’m not at all surprised though. I’m sure that it’ll continue to do great but I’m still skeptical on if it’ll pull in GTA V numbers though.

BOTW is a snoozefest. You should be hyping Mario Odyssey because at least that game is actually good.

That's only shipped numbers, not sold. So that makes the number moot.

And the game isn't exclusive. thought only exclusive games mattered.

Does that include Digital sales? I can’t speak for anywhere else but my local Target has sold out multiple times on physical copies, so digital is really the alternative solution.

That would be me, waiting for RDR2 PC version. Though to tell the truth, "if" I see RDR2 up for sale on Black Friday, I might just might, double-dip PS4 unless it's on a good deal that is.

#36 Posted by JasonOfA36 (983 posts) -

@davillain-: Can't blame you. Game looks fun, but I only have the base PS4 and I can't stand dips below 60, more so dips below 30 fps. Plus, once I get my 2080, the game will look glorious on 1440p 144hz(if it is well-opmtimized, that is.)

It will sell more with black friday, cyber Monday, Thanksgiving, Christmas and new years around the corner.

And even more once red dead Online goes gold.

Those causal gamers and multiplayer freaks will pour in right through

I don't expect it to rival GTA V sales to be honest. The GTA series is Rockstar's flagship and has an enormous fan base that even includes a part of the casual gamer demographic. You can't say that about Red Dead Redemption.

He's right in what he's saying. GTA is popular with "non gamers", as it's ingrained in culture outside of it.

Considering Red Dead is a Western, a genre that both is dead in games and (for the most part) movies, 17 million is..uh... gewd.

How many times do I have to say GOW got boring, just look around I'm not alone, and yes RDR2 gets boring sometime but not as bad as GOW.

You're a lemming so nobody should trust you on that. But anyways, I'm pretty sure all games are found boring by somebody sometime but when the reports come in considerable numbers (not saying that's the case with RDR2 because I haven't looked into that) then it makes a difference against other games.
