Forums - Sales Discussion - Red Dead Redemption 2 #2 Biggest UK Launch in 2018. 27% of GTAV.

Retail only.

Around 600k sold.

Game is sold more than twice what Red Dead Redemption sold.

68% of sales were on PS4 while 32% on Xbox Onle.

BTW the average digital sales in the UK is around 30-35% so even with digital the game probably wont have hit over a million and would still be under half of GTAV.



The first GTA V release or the current gen release?

I think the first

Edit: not sure how accurate the numbers are but this site has ~400k debut for the PS4/XBO versions.



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

Great start, my local had around 300 ps4 copies and 100 xbox copies sitting next to the shelf. In the 2 mins I was in the store, i saw 5 people buying the game. And I was getting it the 2nd day after release.

I'd like to get into this series. Too bad I only own Nintendo systems lol.

They should port GTAV and the first RDR to Switch.

The original release. 



I was wondering what could have been bigger than it, but then I remembered FIFA There's no shame in losing to FIFA!

Crazy that it's double the original RDR but still only 27% of GTA. Shows just how massive GTA is!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

FW sales for this game are going to be a monster.



Yeah, people expecting this to be GTA levels of massive really overestimated the IP. Still a very big opening with very strong performance.
