Red Dead Redemption Robbed a Lot of Banks
Take-Two Interactive today released a pile of financial data for Q2 FY 2010, and one of the big bits that stands out is this, about Red Dead Redemption: “The title has sold in over 5 million units to date and has been a commercial and critical success.” Well, damn, man. Red Dead has been out for, what, three weeks? Five million sold in that time frame has got to be a big win for everyone involved, particularly considering Red Dead Revolver managed only 1.5 million in its first four years of release.
One other bit from the report under “product milestones” is that GTA IV has now, in two years, sold 17 million copies. Not bad for a game that will undoubtedly spark angry comments below about how lame it was.
