On PC? That's absolutely false. I'm sure there's a local Gamestop competitor of some sort selling copies for that amount, but that's neither here nor there. It's been on and off under $20 on Steam for some time now.

It surely doesn't prove that RDR wouldn't have sold better on PC, had it released alongside consoles, but it does prove that T2 makes it's money from consoles. Hence, their release schedule.

Haven't seen it dip below $50 on steam for quite some time. But that maybe due to region.

I don't know what your region is, but it's currently €14.99 on mine. And this pricing isn't new. It's been $15-20 during Steam sales for a while now.

It's also the current top seller on Steam, too, if you can believe that, after all these years.

Currently sitting at $25 local currency for another 8 hours. Might have misread earlier.

I'm sure he meant MSRP. Retail price is around $10 for the x360 where I am. Picked up a copy myself a few months back and the price hasn't changed since then.

Doing the mission with the crazy bald guy shooting bikers while on the water tower as we speak.

The stock price for a couple of reasons. The first one being Take-Two is a publisher, not a developer. There has been a huge amount of backlash over microtransactions in RDR2 Online and the garbage release and aggressive microtransactions in NBA 2K19.


There's far more too it than "This game sold well, the price dropped for no reason".

I hope it keeps sinking until they fold. After GTAV I would very much enjoy seeing TakeTwo and Rockstar become a thing of the past.

GTA V was just a huge cash grab, one that I'm they hope to duplicate with Red Dead. The game itself was amazing, genuinely one of the best. It's the business practices behind the game that I didn't like and once they started going after mod makers I was done with them for good.

The cycle is already starting to repeat with the lack of single player support and all of the focus going into MP. I'm sure Red Dead will be chock full of things to buy and I wouldn't be surprised if it was fairly difficult to actually earn the amount of game currency needed to buy those things. I don't know if red dead will be as bad as GTAV with the money siphoning, but I wouldn't be surprised if you have to pay daily fees in game to keep your horse fed and healthy (like your apartment in GTAV). Whatever they can do to drain away your game currency so that you buy some from them with real money.

People like to give EA a lot of crap but TakeTwo and Rockstar are the absolute worst.... except for maybe that spaceship game that people have been paying stupid amounts of money for.

All game publishers are going in this direction. The only way to avoid it is simply not give into the hype.

Bethesda is the worst. FO76 $5-$10 for a skin. Some skins are as much as $25. They look cool, but if you're willing to spend as much as $half$ of what it cost to purchase the game you deserve to be fleeced.
