Red Dead Redemption to hit on Xbox One
Red Dead Redemption is one of the most anticipated games to be added to the Backwards Compatibility program. Recently there has been an error which allowed some Xbox One players to view the game on Xbox Store, but was soon removed. It was not the first time this game has been rumored to hit Xbox One. The same error as I said above has happened before to many users. Also Red Dead Redemption currently holds 3rd position in the Xbox Feedback Page.
Microsoft’s backwards compatibility title listing this month revealed Red Dead Redemption as one of them and players can play it from July 8th onward.
What’s the great news is not the game’s release but the value for the game on Xbox One. Since the announcement, Red Dead Redemption jumps more than 6000% on Amazon’s Movers & Shakers list which tracks sales rankings. Red Dead Redemption now holds 17th rank in video games on Amazon which was previously at No. 1093. As well as the Game of The Year Edition which includes the Undead Nightmare expansion increased by 1877% (currently holds 36th position in video games, previously No. 712). Also note that these percentage increase does not indicate the number of units sold as ZhugeEX pointed out on Twitter.
So what is Red Dead Redemption?
Red Dead Redemption is a Rockstar San Diego game, released in May 2010 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game is based on the open-world of Red Dead, where John Marston, a former outlaw now returns to the west only to find that his friends had turned against him. The gameplay allows you to freely roam around Red Dead and is equivalent to Grand Theft Auto 4, where you can choose missions and side missions whenever you desire.
Red Dead Redemption was critically acclaimed for its gameplay, graphics and settings on Xbox 360 and PS3 and has a score of 95% on Metacritic.
