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.

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

It’s that time of year, folks.

The time where we sort the men from the boys, the wheat from the chaff and find out which is better: Coke or Pepsi? Daddy or Chips? But in our case, Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare 2.

These are just two of the game that are in the running for Game of the Year 2009, alongside Batman: Arkham Asylum and Street Fighter IV.

We do have other awards too though, you know. So, let’s not waste any other time, and let’s get cracking. All of the awards are below.
