Analyst predicts Red Dead Redemption could sell 4 million this year

Posted in PlayStation 3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360 with tags , , , on May 17, 2010 by James Love

Analyst Doug Creutz of Cowan and Company is predicting that Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption will sell 4 million copies worldwide in it’s first year.

“Red Dead has been perched at the top of the online retailer best seller lists for several weeks now, and we believe it is poised for breakout success,” he said in a note to investors. “Although this positions Red Dead to be another core franchise for Take-Two, given the time between Rockstar franchise iterations, it is possible we might not see another Red Dead title until the next console cycle.”

RDR launches May 21st in the UK on PS3 and Xbox 360. Rockstar released the launch trailer for the game this week which you can have a peek at here.

Rockstar have announced the first piece of DLC for Red Dead Redemption.

Arriving on XBL and PSN this June, Outlaws To The End will be a free co-op pack for the game which “adds an entirely new dimension to Red Dead Redemption’s game play.” It’s the first of 3 planned pieces of DLC for the game, and can be played with up to 4 players.

The DLC comprises of six new missions and offers additional multiplayer XP rewards and new Achievements and Trophies to unlock.

“Multiplayer in Red Dead Redemption offers players a whole new way to encounter the massive open world we’ve created, but we felt the experience would not be complete without co-op game play,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “With these missions, we wanted to create new ways for players to share in the experience of engaging with this amazing landscape.”

Red Dead Redemption launches May 21st on 360 and PS3. Check out some new screens of the DLC after the jump.

GOONL!NE Advent Calander 2010: #11 – Red Dead Redemption

Posted in PlayStation 3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360 with tags , on December 18, 2009 by Chris Hawke

By Will Swarbrick.

It was Niko’s walk that really got me in GTA IV. The way the immigrant swaggered, shoulders rolling, feet pumping the ground, leaning into each corner. It put so much character into something as simple as walking; you knew, right from the start, he was here to chew gum and kick ass.

So, Red Dead Redemption is leisurely strolling to our consoles, and the walk is back, albeit changed slightly. Arms slightly outstretched, large, unnatural sides, palms facing backwards, and a look that’s melt and burn butter simultaneously.
