it was delayed due to marketing concerns... apparently R* doesn't think enough hype has been built up for this yet...

Slightly off topic, but I'm thinking about getting Call Of Juarez to tide me over until this comes out. Anyone played it and is it any good? I don't really mind the delay, means less glitches, which is good, unless they're fun glitches like GTA IV swingset glitch.

The delay seems to be purely about marketing strategy to make more money if you isten to 'Take-Two Interactive Software' chairman Strauss Zelnick.

Swing glitch on a horse would be hilarious. XD.png Anyway what I'm mostly interested in right now are details about the map size I really want to see a pic of the map itself.
TreeFitty
have any of the previews suggested the size yet? probably going to be bigger than IV.

All I can find are other conversations full of fan speculation, 'bigger than San Andreas', 'same as Liberty City', and people saying they've 'heard' it's this and that but can't remember where they heard it.
Edgecrusher
I read somewhere that the map is bigger than that of any previously released Rockstar title, can't remember where though. I really want it to be huge so that you get a real sense of the vastness of the old west. There's still limitations to the size though unfortunately because of the Xbox still using the DVD format.

i too read that it's slightly bigger than san andreas... it's their biggest map yet... i think i read that in the IGN interview...

*Edit*

Nm, just realised it was from the first post of this thread which doesn't site any official source. I can't see it being small though, parts are set in the U.S. and others in Mexico...
TreeFitty
And if you don't find your source, your input is null and void from now on. sleep.gif

Meh, my opinion is worth about as much as that of anyone else. Anyway, speculation is fun...

I didn't realize it was so complicated to get these bonus things. I thought you were just handed them at somepoint in the game.

I wonder if those missions will still be available in the non-special edition copies? Maybe doing them will unlock something else I dunno.
TreeFitty
Might be an achievement/trophy for doing them all. Or they just picked a bunch of random things for you to do to get the bonus.

I've pre-ordered the Limited Edition version from Amazon, wonder what I'll have to do to get the Golden Gun Pack and the War Horse?

How exactly do these bonus things works? i am very interested in the war horse, do i not get that if i just buy it from a shop? will i have to pre-order from somewhere??

I doubt you can get the bonus items like the War Horse and Assassin Outfit in the normal game because the Special/Limited Editions are more expensive to buy so the the extra money must be buying some exclusive material. My suspicion is that you'll be able to download the bonus items as DLC's later in the year.
That's just speculation from me, not sourced.

I'd like to know if you can use the bonus's in multiplayer as an advantage, maybe you'd be put into a lobby with others with the same package I dunno. More info needed for this game me thinks.
Edgecrusher
I would imagine it will be the same as the complete edition of Midnight Club: LA, i.e. users of the standard version will have to download the DLC to play against you. Either that or you just won't be able to use them online. I will be very surpised if these items are not released as DLC, I think the main reason for the difference in price is the included soundtrack CD.

I don't think they'd charge an extra 20 for a soundtrack.

Also just got this email from Gamestation;

Hey **********

Thanks for your following order placed with Gamestation.

You'll never guess what!! The UK release date for Red Dead Redemption Limited Edition has changed to 21/05/2010 00:00:00. This happens quite often and we know it's frustrating. It's just one of those (infuriating) things which are unfortunately out of our control.

Don't worry though, your order hasn't gone anywhere and will be sent out just before its release date via the option you chose - just hang on in there a little longer!
TreeFitty
I agree with the DLC remarks. Probably give the "exclusives" to everyone eventually. Not for a while though.

There's the rub though, with the tag, "Limited Edition," they can pretty much charge what they like, for whatever content they like (within reason, of course), and still ensure sales.

This is the best review I've read so far.

mace9 a GameStop forum member was given this by an employee over at his local GameStop store. He says it contained t-shirts and lanyards. And by the looks of it also contained mini booklets about the game.

Well, I guess the game has been pushed back to May, officially. Kind of sucks, but now I'm VERY glad I'm getting Just Cause 2.

That kind of ruins my late April plans, but now I have made a blood oath to buy no videogames in April. It will be purely a catchup month. And a ketchup month.

you should do it... it doesn't seem like any xbox people play online around here... we can't even get the GTAIV matches going... so, if you want to experience RDR online, you should get it for the PS3...

Kidding. But I've got this preordered, although it feels like it will never come out. Fucking MAY?
