This is utterly spoiler free, so feel free to jump in a peruse yet another in-depth analysis of Rockstar San Diego's action open-world videogame opus, which we're absolutely chuffed with thus far. And in case you missed it, you can check out part 1 right here.

Thanks for the write up steve, makes me want to get it now.

I previously was going to avoid it since it didnt seem to have anything from red dead revolver but the name, but you cleared some things up.

Just to clarify peeps, at this stage there's only plans for PS3 and 360 release for the game. Hopefully we'll see it on PC down the track"

I hate the waiting.....it kills me! Waiting for GTAIV was really hard, delay after delay was like a knife to my opposable thumbs.

Question: Which console with RDR be best played on? Its always hard to figure out which one to buy for.

Haven't heard of any difference between the 360 and ps3 versions. Usually you would hear of exclusive content by now.

I think it would be more of a case of where are you going to buy it from?

Retailer = exclusive content + expensive + play on day one
online = cheap + the possibility of it arriving late + possible DLC or MP problems if a different region

edit: Seems that GAME, EB, JBhifi all have the same 'exclusive' content. Want to order online but I would be pissed if I didn't receive the copy on day 1 or 2.

I honestly think 360 is holding back the industry now. With PS3's blu ray ability, could you imagine the size or content if they used blu ray to its full extent?

Its hard to imagine there will be no difference between PS3 or 360, I was always of the opinion that PS3 gave you better graphics.

Disregard my last....Ive read unbiased comparisons of the two consoles and currently the 360 wins.

Apparently 360 has the better graphics and is easier to design games for, so currently the games being brought out on both consoles are better on 360. Eventually this will reverse once developers start utilizing the PS3 to its full potential.

yer, i guess the ps3 is still a new conslol;

oh hang on, no its not, its been out for years
