So, RDR2's retail sales were 27% of GTAV's in the UK and yet here we see it did over 70% of GTAV's business worldwide in the same timeframe. That's a good indicator of how big digital has got since GTAV's launch.

And how irrelevant UK sales are for coming up with WW numbers.

More accurate would be 

How incomplete UK sales charts are without digital sales.

I’ll see you in a bit... Arthur.

Indeed, I think they are going to be included starting in January so that should help alot.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

This is to be expected from Rockstar by now, but another huge achievement nonetheless. I wonder how much bigger the potential audience was when GTAV launched on PS3 and 360? It must have been quite a bit larger than the PS4 and XB1 audience right now, so there is that to take into consideration, along with the games old western style.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Rockstar Games® is proud to announce that the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2 has achieved the single-biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment*. With over $725 million in worldwide retail sell-through during its first three days, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time next to Rockstar Games' previously released title, Grand Theft Auto V, which achieved over $1 billion in retail sell-through in three days.*

Red Dead Redemption 2's list of initial benchmarks include:

  • Biggest opening weekend in retail sell-through across all entertainment releases;
  • Second biggest launch (three days) in retail sell-through across all entertainment releases;
  • Biggest entertainment launch of 2018;
  • Most pre-ordered full game ever on PlayStation Network;
  • Biggest day one full game sales ever on PlayStation Network;
  • Biggest first three days full game sales ever on PlayStation Network.
These numbers for sure include digital. 
*Red Dead Redemption 2 launched on a Friday so that its ‘opening weekend’ (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) is the same as its first three days, while Grand Theft Auto V launched on a Tuesday.

Gratulation !! With God of the War the best Game of the Year for the most players. Earned! @ Rockstar Games
