what a beast of a game xD

ive had it since launch and still havent played it, doh :(

Ha I’m not ahead of you much; only got in about 5h.

These numbers are friggin huge. My jaw dropped when I read it. From everything Ive heard about RDR2 (e.g. slowness of travel), this must be one of the most untraditional sales behemoth games ever made.

Almost certainly, though I suspect they will release Bully 2 and GTA 6 first, maybe a new LA Noire as well (Take-Two said they have future plans for the IP), so we might not see Red Dead Redemption 3 for another decade. 



Those sales are just insane



But remember,wont effect hardware that much,maybe a slight'bump'
Amazing sales!

A slight bumb is actually good being as though these consoles are 5 years old and at least one of them are anyway in the hand of 85 million players. Half of that base also have an Xbox.



Xbox 6 million.
PS4 11 million.

If this generation's trends are to be considered anyway.

Really interested what they do with Bully 2, me and my bro really had fun with the first one, either way, any of the three you mentioned I'm good, I want them to make another masterpiece out of RDR so I'll wait until they can finally release it.

Only 17m?



Few days after its release date some people were saying that it wouldn't sell more than 20 million. Now 40-50m should be quite easy.
