The game is literally around the corner - we have it, and are running it through its paces ahead of our official review in the coming days, but prior to that, Rockstar have released the absolute final trailer for Red Dead Redemption, and it's an epic one.

If all the hyperbole up until now, all of our own previews and features don't sway you in this game's direction, then maybe this trailer will. It shows off the game's overall tone, more of the lush landscape and all the action and excitement you're going to be facing. Check it out embedded below, and stay tuned next week for the official AusGamers Red Dead Redemption review.

Too right I am, but I don't get all defensive about it. Actually now I feel the need clarify, I only say PC because it's faster to type than keyboard & mouse. Add a keyboard & mouse to an Xbox or PS3 and I'd buy one for sure. Until then, PC wins.

The ps3 allows you to plug in a usb keyboard and mouse, I think only a small amount let you play the game with it though, Unreal Tournament 3 comes to mind.

GTA IV was worth waiting for on PC, a much better richer experience, look at some GTA IV Console vs PC comparisons and the game looks much worse and there is hardly any NPC life.... less traffic etc.

The thing i don't get is rockstar has ALWAYS been focused on releasing top quality CONSOLE games. This isen't a developer who decided "Screw you pc pricks with your pirates and dedicated server issues!" like ubisoft, this is a company release what i forsee to be another awesome game, designed by a console company, FOR a console...?

If it comes out on PC later, freakin epic! but otherwise whats your real reason to complain if not just for the sake of complaining?

Really is there even a need for reviews of this game. I mean the pedigree behind the guys who made it makes this an instant buy regardless.

But when the reviews come out, theyll be kissing more arse than GTA IV and MGS 4 combined.

Ohh and every threads got to b**** about PCs?? I swear you wouldnt b**** so much if the games actually came out on PC. Instead of whinging about not playing the game, just swallow your pride and buy a console. The shtick is ollllddd.

No game is an instant buy, especially a Rockstar game and no we would not 'b****' so much if they would release on all platforms simultaneously, that's kind of the point. I know this game will play better on PC because it has guns and therefor aiming, it's a no brainer. Also confirmed by watching the livestream last night, his cam control was horrid and it's all auto aim s***, apart from the lasso, which he missed with... a lot.

The PC thing comes up a lot on AG cuz most on here are PC gamers, so get used to it I guess or ignore it.

1. Dont use mouse with a console.

If this isnt the highest rated game on metacritic this year ill eat the game disc


Thats a pretty big call with Starcraft 2, Cataclysm and Halo: Reach all due out this year! I'm going to save a bookmark to this thread, and I expect video evidence of you eating the discs if your prediction is proven false.

Though, I do agree about the big tv and comfy couch bit. I find myself much more enjoying gaming these days lounging on my couch in front of my tv, than I do sitting in front of my PC. I bought Bad Company 2 ages ago on PC and while its a good game I've hardly played it at all, cos I just can't really bring myself to game much on my PC anymore these days. Maybe its cos I work on it all day, I just want to get away from it in my leisure time. Its certainly not a "Consoles are better lulz" type issue, theres plenty of great games on PC, but I guess they offer different gaming experiences and I find myself more and more these days not in the mood for what the PC offers.

They will release on PC because there would not be much involved in porting it and it will make them more money and I'm no rockstar fanboy because they sell out to microsoft and delay the PC versions, I don't need much more reason than that. I don't care about metacritic myself, I judge the games I play by how much I enjoy them, trying to shoot something with a controller is not fun at all and for me game breaking, remember I do actually aim, not auto aim, big difference.

I didn't say or imply that PC is the predominant platform, I do believe and indeed imply that it is the best platform. Rockstar don't suck, but they are not exactly amazing either. I have an xbox controller sitting to my left on top of my PC, I do use it and know how to use it (like it's hard?) but if I have to aim, it just seems totally illogical to me to ignore the mouse sitting to my right. I swap between them a lot in Just Cause 2 and use it exclusively for any and all racing games. I don't how ever use it for GTA IV, and would not use it for RDR, here's to hoping they allow PC users to disable auto aim like they did with GTA IV.

1. Dont use mouse with a console.
2. A large screen TV with surround sound and awesome couch more than negates the 'low graphics settings' as you would call it.

1. Yea I wont cuz I wont own one till I can.
2. Large LCD 2ft away from me... high quality headphones plugged into high quality sound card... comfy desk chair.

Playing a shooter with a controller is like going out for 18 holes with plastic clubs.

Clicking is no different to pressing a button on a controller, getting it on target is indeed different though and the mouse is far superior in this action, auto aim beeing added console shooters is all the proof anyone needs of this. But for driving/fighting/sports games controller is best.

But you know this, you is trollin'!

Trauma, ahead of my review which will cover this anyway, to be honest I'd be happier playing this on console, if only for the sheer size of it all. Also, horse-riding feels more suited to a controller. Aiming would definitely be better on PC, but the snap system in place is actually very intuitive.

IF this game makes it to the PC, then PC gamers are likely going to enjoy playing their preferred way, but if I had to suggest getting a console solely for this... well, you'll have to wait till Tuesday to find out ;)

Yea that's what i was thinking while watching the stream, the horse riding would be better on controller, but the shooting and anything on foot KB & mouse for sure, same thing for GTA, I just suck it up when riding a bike in GTA.

Lol wetwire, you got ripped off, I know for a fact you can get your pc upgraded enough to play that game on high for $300 or less. Unless you had to get a new pc XD.

If you ask me its like this, Your going to prefer to play games on whatever you grew up playing, for me thats consoles. However I do also play Pc games for something different and some exclusive games.
True Pc gaming is more expensive and windows is plauged with errors and incompatibility, but the advantage you get is better graphics and online community mods that expand the life of games.

Ive heard many pc gamers complain about controllers not being smooth enough, Im sorry but this just means you probably suck at consoles, If you had played a console for even 2 years I bet you wouldnt be saying that its hard to aim with a controller. On that note however, I do think RTS games are more suited on Pc, although there have been some decent RTS games on consoles you just dont get the speed of scrolling with the keyboard.

Consoles are made for Gaming, Pc's arn't thats why it costs more but in the end it all comes down to what youve been playing IMO.

It isn't hard to aim with a controller but it is very restrictive compared with a mouse. If we could get a mouse+kb pro vs a controller pro test it would be a one-sided match.

Anyway I have thoroughly examined all sides of the argument and have come to the conclusion that consoles are s***.

Anyone seen any cheap deals for RDR? I'm not buying it online because I want to play it this weekend. So far cheapest I've heard of is K-Mart @ $84. Might get EB to price match and trade in a game for credit.

That looks like an ad for the monitor or something, the picture may be Red Dead Redemption but the banner along the bottom (that the PC bit is part of) is for the Aquos E77 series screen that its being displayed on. Thats not even grasping at straws, thats like inventing a straw and THEN grasping at it.

I don't understand the blind rabid devotion on both sides of this argument, just seems kind of stupid. Whoever said enjoy games on all platforms earlier in the thread had it right. I'll be enjoying Starcraft 2 and WoW and Diablo 3 and whatever else comes along for PC that I want, on my PC. But I'll be enjoying stuff like RDR on my 360 and playing it this week instead of in 6 - 8 months time. There'll be other stuff I want to play in 6-8 months time, I want my dose of RDR awesomeness sooner rather than later.

pc is leaps and bounds infront of console, you jump online on a console and it's all highschool kids, + try closing a browser asap with a control with a stupid capped sens take 10seconds to flick to the top with a mouse its like BAM you saw nothing!

So they are saying that this massive screen is PC DVD compatible? I get that you may want a certain game sooner via console but me, I'd rather not ruin it.

Yeah I'm the same, I'd prefer to play the game on a higher resolution and wait out the 6-8 months to do so.

Yeah, it doesn't really make sense, but it doesn't really make sense that they'd advertise the game for PC when it doesn't exist on PC either, and it is at the same level as the banner ad for the monitor. Simplest explanation is often the correct one?

I get that you may want a certain game sooner via console but me, I'd rather not ruin it.


Yeah, but thats just a matter of perspective, I can't say that anything I've played lately (or ever) has ruined the experience. I'm sure RDR wont be ruined by console, since it was built from the ground up to be a console game, but if you hate consoles, then sure, playing it on a console would probably ruin the experience for you. Not really the game's fault though, its more just your own hangups. I'm sure if it the console version was ruined it wouldn't be getting rave reviews and have a 96 metacritic average.

That is because all the gameplay vids are on low detail because of the console restrictions.
Calsy

console restrictions, what the hell??? is that some garbage you just made up.

Do they look like stick figures to you?? Both the 360 and PS3 versions look great. Another point in this whole debate is the game itself!!!

The story the detail, s*** just because its not in some bulls*** resolution that can only run on an expensive high end PC where 99% of people would not even be able to register any difference in their eyes, you think its s***.

Do you guys play games! SERIOUSLY DO YOU PLAY GAMES!! or do you just fap over the amount of pixels jammed on your screen.

I really cant stand this idiocy. Is there anyway you can get rid of these people and just talk about awesome games.

For those who are looking for a Keyboard and Mouse combination for consoles

FragFX v.2 for the Playstation 3

Quote:
The FragFX v.2 features a separate right hand mouse controller and detachable left hand grip controller, ideal for experiencing the traditional PC mouse and keyboard style gameplay of shooter games in a console environment.

* v.2: Improved optical mouse
* v.2: Improved Frag button
* v.2: Improved mouse sensitivity
* v.2: Improved motion sensitivity
* v.2: Improved mouse buttons
* v.2: Improved d-pad
* v.2: Improved games support

Key FragFX controller features include:

* The right hand mouse controller has the complete set of PS3 controller buttons. The mouse is used during game play to shoot, look left, right, up and down for that same PC style game play experience on the PlayStation 3.
* The mouse is optimized for navigation within the recently announced PlayStation Home virtual world.
* A menu mode on the mouse allows it to double as a regular mouse during menu selections. A lap mouse pad and left hand grip cradle is included with the FragFX to allow for comfortable play in a living room setting.
* The left hand re-programmable grip (nicknamed the "FragChuck" by G4TV) has the full range of 6-axis motion control providing Wii-like motion sensitivity for the PlayStation 3. In games like Resistance: Fall of Man, to reload a weapon or to rifle butt an opponent, the user can swing the FragChuck.
* The FragChuck also offers a game speed dial and frag button. When the frag button is pressed it slows the mouse down to incremental movement for smooth sniper shots. The speed dial allows for instant fast or slow overall game play. These two additional features let the user get out of battles as fast as they get into them.

This thing is the Bomb and works for all games. And I can guarantee I will frag ur arse in red dead if you dont have one of these.

I already have a fragnstein mouse for ps3. While it is great when the only other option is a down syndrome controller it is still a bit retarded, you can't do quick 180 turns and micro-movements are jolty but you get used to it. I can confirm that it dominates online... imagine if you had 100% PC mouse movements.

@calsy: watch someone play GTA4 on x360 or ps3 then watch someone play it on a decent gaming pc. the difference is abundantly clear to anyone who isn't a retard. picked this as an example as it has already been mentioned in the thread but there are bajillions of others.

but in all seriousness, the real losers here are the chumps who are unwilling or unable to own more than one platform. sux2buguyz.

What's the go with people not owning both a ps3 AND a PC? I mean, it's not that expensive and you get to experience the best of both worlds. Some games like Fifa 2010, tekken6, uncharted 2 and now Red dead redemption are epic on 42" screens.

Anyone that can't afford both is a straight up dole bludging loser

See that's what I find interesting, ppl always say a 42" or w/e screen is awesome, but it runs the same res as the LCD 2' in front of my face, the image quality is the same or better on the LCD.

also noobies makes you sound terribly childish, just saying :P

It wasn't a very good comeback though, it was too long, comebacks need to be punchy and to the point. Something like "2 inches was enough to please your mum last night" would have been much more succinct and to the point.

Maybe I'm just blind, but I couldn't really tell the difference, the only thing that seemed to differentiate the games when he was doing the split screen thing was different contrast or brightness settings. I didn't watch it to the end though cos it got boring pretty quick, maybe he does some super reveal at the end.
