Rockstar also claimed that RDR2 also became the most pre-ordered game ever on the PlayStation Network (PSN), Sony's online gaming service for its hit console system.

It was announced today that Red Dead Redemption 2 officially had the single-largest opening week in the entire entertainment industry. Other personal anecdotes share mixed reactions, with some saying turning off HDR improves colors but harms contrast, and others calling for Rockstar to release a proper HDR patch as soon as possible.

"Some staff have been encouraged by Rockstar to speak publicly".

Hunting rare and valuable animals and using their pelts to craft powerful items or awesome looking pieces of clothing is a major part of the experience for players in the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 created by Rockstar Games. "Simply put, some people feel they can not go through this again".

Rockstar Games is no stranger to record-breaking releases with each GTA release being a cultural event and GTA V making a whopping $1 billion in just three days.

Meanwhile, Red Dead Redemption 2 remains a critical success as well. Piscatella does not buy into that view.

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. "We're seeing record setting launch sales performances across a number of major titles already, and I expect this trend to continue". We have some short videos, however, that show the specifics of a shootout and hunting, from how immersive they are (very) to how the weapons act (realistically) to how Arthur deals with high-stress situations (well).

Early reviews say the game is "one of the best" of the year, if not the generation.
