This game is the most fun I've had in years!  I love how grounded and serious it all is so far.  I love it.

So what are some thoughts so far?

I have sadly lost my first horse. :(  I was at the train station in Valentine paying off a bounty when a train came and hit my horse on the tracks.  The train did try to stop in time though.

RED DEAD REDEMPTION II SALES UPDATE

Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 sold through more than $725 million worth in its first three days of sales. That indicates roughly 10 million copies sold at the outset (and if you consider average game prices, 12 million units at $60 each), according to analyst Ben Schachter at Macquarie Research. And it means that game sales could hit 15 million or 20 million copies sold by the end of Christmas, he said. Based on my own take, that means the game could be profitable by the end of the year.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold about 70 percent as well as Grand Theft Auto V in its first three days. Schachter’s own estimate for sales in the initial quarter are at 15 million copies, a conservative number, and he said that investor expectations are at 20 million copies. If Red Dead stays at the 70 percent level, 20 million is doable by early December, Schachter said in a report. With an average rating of 97 out of 100 on review aggregator Metacritic, the prospects look good.  At 20 million copies sold, overall revenue for Rockstar Games would be $860 million.

So we take revenue estimated at $860 million, and then costs of $540 million, and this game will have a profit of $320 million by December 31. Add to that revenues from Red Dead Online, which are likely to be good. The breakeven point would be about 12.5 million games sold.

Pachter estimates that Take-Two gets $100 million in revenue per quarter from GTA Online, which has been out for five years. That’s been a huge success, with the peak quarter at maybe $125 million. It will take Red Dead Online some time to ramp up its revenues. But it’s a conservative bet to say it could generate $50 million per quarter for Take-Two, or an additional $200 million a year. It will have costs as well, but not nearly as much as it took to create the game.

Into perspective, GTA V broke sales records of all forms of entertainment when released.  Rockstar and experts never thought RDR II would even come close to what GTA V, and they didn't expect it too.  That wasn't the goal.  GTA V broke records including the Highest revenue generated by an entertainment product in 24 hours and the Fastest entertainment property to gross $1 billion.  GTA V sold nearly 12 million copies in the first 24hrs and hit over $1 billion in sales in less than three days.

Full list of Grand Theft Auto V record-breaking achievements:

1. Best-selling action-adventure videogame in 24 hours

2. Best-selling videogame in 24 hours

3. Fastest entertainment property to gross $1 billion

4. Fastest videogame to gross $1 billion

5. Highest grossing videogame in 24 hours

6. Highest revenue generated by an entertainment product in 24 hours

Well.... I did it.  I beat the "main" story but haven't done the epilogue. 

I won't give any spoilers.... but this game is an easy 10 of 10.  The storytelling and story itself when completed with RDR I is one of the best stories in video games and all media.  I'm blown away.

Been loving this game.  I think I am near the end.  We are leaving Saint Denis after certain events happened.

I can say this is the most fun I've had in a game since GTA V.  The story is fantastic.  I actually feel bad for people I have to deal with.

Awesome, Kiwi! :D

This game is so reflective.  I love just riding off with no real aim.  I always find something to interest me.
