Red Dead Redemption Remaster Becomes A Top Trending Game On PlayStation Store
The upcoming remaster of Rockstar Games’ open world action-adventure game, Red Dead Redemption, has become one of the top trending game on the PlayStation Store.
According to the PlayStation Store, the Red Dead Redemption remaster is now among the top trending games on the ecosystem, shuffling between the #1 and #2 spots. All the negativity over the social media doesn’t appear to have impacted it, as it is still eagerly anticipated by fans.
The aforementioned negativity around the Red Dead Redemption remaster stems from the apparent lack of visual upgrades over the 2010 original. Twitter user PlayStation Game Size had shared YouTube statistics for the trailer for Red Dead Redemption on PS4 and Switch, which has amassed around 1 million views at the time. The interesting thing to note, however, was that the video had received 34,877 likes while there were 100,595 dislikes.
The large differential between likes and dislikes on the YouTube video suggested that fans were not satisfied with the bare-bones state of the port, especially the PS4 version, nor were they happy with the lack of support for other platforms. The game is not being released on PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Recently, IGN had asked Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick about the lack of a PC release, to which he responded by saying that he left game release announcements up to the developers. Additionally, on the subject of doing ports/remasters/remakes, he said, “It depends on the vision that the creative teams have for a title, and in the absence of having a powerful vision, for something that we would do with a title, we might bring it in its original form, we’ve done that, and in certain instances we might remaster or remake, so it really depends on the title and how the label feels about it, the platform, and what we think the opportunity is for consumers.”
