    wasn't it this price on release day?

      I think it was $62 on release, that's what I ended up paying on my pre-order.

      GTA V was in the top 10 sales for over five years straight … RDR2 may do even better as far as sales due to more people gaming compared to 2013.

        I think it’ll struggle to do that. Looks like it’s sold 24 million copies which puts it well behind GTA V on 110 million (and that title is still pushing units)

        GTA V likely benefited a lot from being rereleased on the next gen systems that lead to a lot of people double dipping. That and I think the GTA name simply carries broader appeal and recognition.

        Not to say RDR are anything less than impressive, just GTA V is basically in a league of it’s own.

          They're still holding off on a PC release of RDR2. Odds are we will get it on the PS5/XB2 and PC with better graphics and some bonus content for that sweet double dip.

            @Agret: It wont be on PC like rdr1.

          •  

            @Agret: Could equally see GTA V on any future console too and there’s persisting rumours of a Switch port. Clearly has the user base there. That said, with both systems almost certainly being backwards compatible I'm not sure they'd actually re-release the titles. Maybe but I suspect the vast majority of gamers that don't own a Pro or X will get the optimisations out of RDR that comes with having more powerful hardware which would unlock the Pro + X optimisations and that'll be what we get.

            But yeah, any future releases is speculation and nearly 90 million units is a lot to catch up to GTA V and as I mentioned, GTA V still sells extremely well itself. Apparently is was the 11th highest seller of 2018, 5 years after release, which suggests to me it could very likely be outselling RDR2 at this point if RDR2 sales dropped to around 1 million for the Nov - May period (half the year that included the lucrative Xmas months). To get in the top 11 of 2018 GTA V must have been pulling well ahead of 1 million per 6 months.

            As above, not trying to be dismissing of RDR2 but GTA V's sales are astronomical. This article looks to put it in context

            https://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2019/05/14/putting-gra...

            as does this

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_video_gam...

            To put it simply there's a fair few 20million unit titles there, GTA V is one of three to ever pass 100 million and that includes PC titles so I wouldn't assume a potential PC port will nearly make a big enough dent. They'd need to add more sales than the 4th highest selling game of all time got to catch it (Wii Sports with 82 million, and that was a pack in title) while having GTA V sales halt in the mean time such is the sales gap right now.

    Playing this game is like watching 2001 or listening to The Dark Side of the Moon - if you haven't done it, you're missing out.

    Is this game fully enjoyable offline? If so I'll buy later. Got so many games to play still lol

      Yeah, the single player campaign is. Obviously the online multiplayer side of it won't be much good to you without a connection.
