Red Dead Redemption II had biggest opening weekend in history of entertainment

Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Suggests PC Version Exists Red Dead Redemption 2 is the UK’s second-biggest physical launch of 2018

Video games have an unfair advantage over other media, in that they're considerably more expensive than music or movies, but even so Red Dead Redemption II made $725 million in its first three days.

We've had another tantalizing hint that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be coming to the PC after some enterprising soul rifled through the guts of the game's companion app and found references to a PC version.

Then, hidden with the first paragraph - which many likely gloss over - is this sentence: "It is made by skilled laborers who work tireless hours each week and on the weekends for little pay in order to the finest revolver in the field today".

This makes Red Dead Redemption 2 the second highest Grossing entertainment launch with Grand Theft Auto V holding the number 1 spot.

Most pre-ordered PlayStation game ever. The reactions to the stunningly immersive world have been intense, but what truly shows off what an "experience" this game is and how real it gets is one particular scene regarding the KKK. Through its first three days the western brought in a whopping $725 million. Copies of RDR went from anywhere between $60 and $100 (for special editions), but still, it's opening weekend is nothing short of fantastic.

Red Dead Redemption 2 may not be ideal, but its minor shortcomings are like tiny blemishes on a stunningly attractive face.
