[XB1, PS4] Red Dead Redemption 2 $62 Delivered @ Amazon AU

1520

Thanks to the amazing 12.5% cashback offer from CR and Shopback, this brings RDR2 to about $60.375 for a preorder. Amazing value and I reckon this would be the cheapest any brick and mortar store would offer. At least you get the convenience of shipping on release day to save petrol.

Update 11 Oct: Cashback offers have expired.
Update 20 Oct: Price now $62, from $69.

Black OPs 4 sells for $54.25 after 12.5% shopback/CR cashback (thanks aja12!) - https://www.amazon.com.au/Call-Duty-Black-Ops-PlayStation/dp...

Edit 11-Oct-2018: I made a calculation mistake. I wasn't supposed to include GST. RDR2 would cost $62.73 after cashback.

        • True, I missed that. I assumed expedited shipping for pre orders was simply their normal 2 day shipping. That's more promising, but I still wouldn't rely on it :)

    • Good pickup, thanks. I got free expedited delivery.

  • No way I'm relying on Auspost to get it to me on release day, especially being a Friday and having to wait until Monday if anything stuffs up

      What do you mean? don't you enjoy your tracking staying the same for a week then suddenly getting a text that a parcel is coming today that requires your signature?

      • That's how tracking works.. Every time it reaches a depot there's an update.

        I take your point, but there's a reason for it. It's en route between states then they deliver it same day when it gets to your state (assuming youre near the capital)

        • Actually all my packages have been dispatched one day after they reached Perth. Even if they arrive at my local post office which is like 3km away they still wait a day for them to dispatch.

    Is this game out on PC also??
    I don't really want to be limited with 30fps on console..

    • Unfortunately not.

      • :'(
        Hopefully it will be released at a later date just like GTA 5.
        Fingers Crossed!

        • Well I never played the first game and I'm a PC gamer but if this game really does live up to the hype then I might buy a console just for it. Something like the One S is pretty cheap when buying used and would be perfect for exclusives and games with terrible PC ports while still playing most of your games on PC.

          • @Ostrk: The One S is a pretty cheap 4K Bluray player also.

          • +1

            @Ostrk: One S will be 900p. One X will be closer to native 4k. Pro is a custom resolution of 1920x2160p according to digital foundry analysis of the ps4 pro gameplay released so far. Depends on TV you own. PS4 has some killer exclusive games that many PC gamers would enjoy. I'd get a pro to play it but up to you.

          • @Ostrk: You can run the first one at between 10-20fps at 4k on the ps3 emulator lol

  • +2

    But nobody should preorder games ever.

    • This will be the greatest game in the world

        I know and it sorta has me on the fence. Ive never preordered. Can't think of a game Ive bought on release (probably a digital download).

        but its such a poor idea and is exactly why they crank out fifa, nba, cod, AC every year with no benefits.

        • in-game bonuses, people wanting to play sooner, and the time value risk in waiting for a competitive price

          if these are important to you and you think it offsets the risk of a bad game, then preorder

        • +1

          I've never even bought a game a few months after release let alone pre-order but for me Cyberpunk 2077 is very tempting.

        • Stand by your convictions friend. I very rarely pre-order, and when I do it's typically because I do want the publisher to know that I'm particularly invested in that product. I'm happy to wait for RDR 2 to prove itself to me, even if it looks good now.

        • -1

          The fact that you compare a Rockstar game probably 4+ years in the making to FIFA which is an annual release game…is disturbing. Judge by the previews and trailers. I've watched a few and can say this will be at least a 9/10 for sure. It looks way better than GTA V.

    • -1

      dont preorder EA games and activision

  • +1

    Waiting for The Gamesmen to come through with the competitive deal, I ordered Spiderman and it came launch day with them (non-express)

  • +2

    Never pre-order games

  • +1

    The Gamesmen, come on, compete with these lads!

  • +2

    Cant risk not having it on release date, but good price!

  • +3

    This is probably one of very very few games where I would have no problem pre-ordering and actually want to pre-order

  • I've never seen any special pre-order bonuses cone with my Amazon pre-orders of games. Can some one provide an example of when they've actually given you a bonus?

  • +1

    I’m still waiting for RD1 to come out on PC, unlikely as that may be.

  • +2

    The only time I've regretted getting PAX tickers this year. Oh well, think I'll wait for PC.

    • Oh wow, I didn't even realise. I was planning to take the Friday off work to attend PAX … Decisions, decisions.

  • +2

    Damn! I haven't even finished 5% of Odessey. I want to play this one too…. What to do.. :(

    • Waste two weekends to finish the game

    • Im a bit unimpressed with the graphics of Odessey but RDR2 will make up for it

  • +2

    Hey all, sorry for the noob question, but I am new to cash rewards program and wondering: If I preorder today and the funds don’t get debited until a day or so before release as it’s a preorder, will I still get the 12.5% reward?

    • +1

      I just ordered assuming this. If this is not the case, I could have got this from EBGames matching Price. (Most probably it will be $67):-o.
      OR from JBHIFI for $69 with a chance to win a US holiday ;)

    • +1

      You will as it will ship within 60 days of ordering.

  • Is it a ruse? Requirements say your pre-orders have to ship within 60 days to get the cashrewards. Got a whole heap of games with October and November release dates, yet Amazon says they'll ship after 12th December…

  • -1

    How long does it normally take AAA releases like this to come under $40? I'm hoping by Xmas… Trying not to fomo…

    • +1

      Considering GTA 5 stayed above $50 for YEARS, I doubt it. It still goes for $40-50 new…

      RDR2 will probably be the same.

      • Agreed. It feels strange that a game stores value that well.

  • Is it worth the extra money to pay for Red Redemption Special Edition? or buy the normal version without the bonus content?

    • Well you have another 1.5 hours to decide. Cashback offers expire at midnight.

    • +1

      No way, extra content cost almost $60 more.

  • +1

    I assume this also applied to Super Smash, as that releases within 60 days (as per the comment above that it has to ship within 60 days).

    https://www.amazon.com.au/Super-Smash-Ultimate-Nintendo-Swit...

    • I held off preordering this, but have now pulled the trigger since I had $10 credit with Amazon. Hopefully the cashback comes through.

  • Cheers for the post OP. I agree, this price will be hard to beat. So worth it for this too.

  • I decided to send Amazon.com.au an email in regards to the Spiderman pre order special edition bonus content I never received. This is the body of the email I received in response. Note the use of the words "beta code", I believe he means "bonus content code"?:

    " … I request you to please contact the manufacturer in order to receive the Beta code.

    As per the information we received from the manufacturer,they will be sending the beta codes directly to the purchaser's email address.Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you in this regard.

    We appreciate your patience and understanding.

    If you need any further assistance, we are just an email away."

    Absolutely useless. Do you want to be emailing rockstar and asking for your warhorse and revolver and expecting a timely and helpful response on release day? I doubt it. You' pre-ordered for what exactly from Amazon? They've really stuffed this stuff up when it comes to distributing codes for bonus content. I'm very hesitant to preorder anything from them ever again.

    I've screen shot the bonus content image and will be coming after Amazon on horseback with loaded revolvers if I have to. But then again, never had JB hi-fi let me down with this stuff so I guess I'll go with them …

  • had just ordered recently with a controller when it was 10% CB…just cancelled and reordered with 12.5% …yay!

  • +1

    Why did mine cost $62.73 😭😭😭

    • +2

      Cashback amount is calculated based on the price minus GST.

      • +1

        Ahh I see, thanks. The final price shouldn't really have been listed as $60.375 then should it.

        • +1

          Nope. looks like OP made a mistake.

          • @asubtleviolence: Sorry guys! I believe you can still cancel. From earlier comments, Amazon will charge upon dispatch.

  • +1

    Still $62.73 is the best price you will ever see from this game in the first 3-6 months.

  • Sometimes it's best not to get it on release date, after a week or 2 they usually have several patches released to fix bugs with the game.
    I hate playing buggy games but this is RDR 2 so i'm not sure if I can wait.

  • +1

    Winner winner chicken dinner! Amazon price is now 62. Thank you price match guarantee!

    • +1

      @Julius Seizure You should change the title if it's now $62.

  • Nice one OP, pre-ordered

  • Going by how Amazon has deducted from my account, I'm inferring it has been shipped!

    • You can check the tracking to see if it's shipped. Mine hasn't yet but was supposed to today.

      • +1

        Still says "Will dispatch Oct 24". Darn! If it arrives next week, I'd still be okay. No rush to play it.

  • Expected delivery time by 8pm. Ordered but not yet shipped as shown by tracking.

    Guess I'll work from home tomorrow lmao.

  • +1

    Shipped from NSW Wednesdau morning arrived in WA last night, looking good for an afternoon gaming session.

  • +1

    Thanks OP. It's just been delivered to rockdale parcel locker @ 9 AM

  • Mine has been onboard since 8am :|

    FYI - now $64 on XB1 and PS4.
