Red Dead Redemption 2 still sold admirably, doubling the sales of its predecessor and comfortably beating rival Call of Duty Black Ops 4 in its opening week.

It seems that Rockstar Games are aware of HDR issues regarding Red Dead Redemption 2 and are working to fix them.

However, Red Dead Redemption 2 hasn't quite managed to scale the lofty heights of Grand Theft Auto V, which accumulated $1 billion in sell-through to retail within the same time-frame.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Has The Biggest Launch Weekend Ever

The game launched to reviews heaping praise on the ambitious title, but it appears fans were already convinced to purchase it, as it broke the records for most pre-ordered full game ever on PlayStation Network. The caveat here is that Grand Theft Auto V launched on a Tuesday, while Red Dead Redemption 2 launched on Friday, thus allowing Take-Two to make such a claim.

Highest one-day sales for a PlayStation game. It also generated the highest day one sales and highest sales for the first three days on the market in PlayStation Network history. Copies of RDR went from anywhere between $60 and $100 (for special editions), but still, it's opening weekend is nothing short of fantastic.

For starters, the Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app has file names such as "PARAM_companionAutoConnectIpPC" that suggests a PC version is in the works, but there are also multiple files that include mentions of the word "Oculus"-a possible reference to the Rift headset". Every single aspect of the game will put you into the very shoes of an outlaw roaming America with his gang as they try to escape the law long enough to make the money needed to disappear for good.
