Red Dead Redemption Would Never Come To PC

Good news is: Rockstar's newly published FAQ has confirmed that L.A. Noire will be coming to PC this fall; Bad news is: Red Dead Redemption won't.

"We hope that with the announcement that L.A. Noire is coming to PC this fall, and the knowledge that our next big game Max Payne 3 will have a PC release (plus that we've released both Grand Theft Auto IV and the Episodes from Liberty City for PC), we can finally put to rest any misconceptions that we've 'abandoned the PC platform,'" the FAQ reads. "We do know that, yes, there is just one title absent from our PC release plans -- that game of course being Red Dead Redemption, and of course we're well aware that some fans have been asking for it."

The FAQ didn't give any reason why Rockstar decided not to port Red Dead Redemption to PC, even though it has been released 16 months ago.

"All we can say is that whenever it is viable (technically, developmentally and business-wise) for us to release a game for PC (or any other particular platform) -- we will and we usually do; unfortunately, that is just not the case 100% of the time for all platforms. To PC gamers, we hope that between the Grand Theft Auto titles, and the forthcoming L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3, you'll have plenty of great Rockstar action to enjoy."

It is hard to believe that porting Red Dead Redemption would be harder than porting a huge open-world game such as GTA IV. Also, if fear from piracy was the reason for not porting it, Rockstar wouldn't port L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3.

NYC-TERROR-WALI Freezing PS3 Consoles

There is a punk on Red Dead Redemption named NYC-TERROR-WALI that has been using an exploit of some kind to crash PS3 consoles in gang matches. Several people had to restart their systems after getting shot by NYC-TERROR-WALI. One person believed it was dynamite that hit him but wasn't sure because the console froze immediately. I've heard of people doing stuff like this but never experienced it first hand. I don't know if the hacks he is using can cause physical damage to the PS3 but it can't be good for it.

Way too many cheaters

spiderone69 is a cheater on Red Dead Redemption for the Playstation 3. This bitch uses a modded PS3 console with an aimbot and a modified controller. Several people have also said that he uses a lag switch. Don't waste your time playing with this cheater.

BriAn_eL_PeKe is a cheater on several Playstation 3 games including GTAIV, MW2, Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 and Red Dead Redemption. He uses a modded PS3 console and a modified controller. If he ever gets Battlefield 3 or MW3 he will probably cheat on those as well.

MET_ALL_ICA_1978 is a mexican cheater on Black Ops and Red Dead Redemption for the Playstation 3. He uses a modded PS3 console and a modified controller. This bitch has no legitimate skill and has cheated under multiple PSN usernames.

ReallyGroovy is a cheater on Red Dead Redemption for the Playstation 3. He is already listed as a cheater but the number of complaints gave us the incentive to mention him again. He uses a modded PS3 console and a modified controller. If anyone has seen him cheating on any other games like Battlefield 3 or MW3 let us know.

Pyrothedon1 is a cheater on Red Dead Redemption for the Playstation 3. He uses a modded PS3 console and a modified controller. Several people have also seen him on MW3 so his game has to be suspect there as well.

ANIMEOTAKU-KIMOI, K-RIDER-BIBARI, J-F-K7 and Rikiya-1205 are all Japanese cheaters on Red Dead Redemption. They all use modded Playstation 3 consoles and modified controllers. The number of Japanese cheaters on the PS3 continues to climb.

RDR is on the PC

RDR is on the PC, its called Call of Juarez. I played that game to the end and it really sucked. I'm guessing the RDR is no different. So i could give a shit if RDR came out on PC or not. If they ever come out with a western RPG, then i might be interested. Other than that, the devs can suck my ass.

Red Dead Cheaters

Red Dead Redemption for the Playstation 3 is full of cheaters. In just about every match you will find someone using a modified controller, aimbot, rapid fire, glitches, and several other hardware and software hacks. These are some of the known cheaters on the PS3.

How about we all just agree

How about we all just agree that PCs and consoles are all doing fine, no one platform is better than any other, and piracy isn't really an issue. Than we all agree that obviously they have some other reason to not port Red Dead Redemption, because if any of those things were true they wouldn't port any of their games. Personally, I can't really figure out why they wouldn't port it to PC. Seems like it would sell enough copies to justify it. Unless it was programmed in such a way that they would have to completely rewrite the game from scratch, but that would be quite the mess up.

Red dead redemption was maybe

Red dead redemption was maybe the only game that teased me to get a console for this gen. I have GTAIV and pc... fcuken drm while you need to create a stupid account to play.. not to say it'S buggy and unconscistent. I got bored of it after a few days.

L.A. noire? no thanks I prefer watching movies and PLAYING games. that's what games are for: playing.

Rockstar has turned like Metallica: they claim to be rebels while they only care about their sales.

Well said...

Well said indeed & then we'll have Fallout 4 & all will be right with the PC world. Also to compliment another posters comment about L.A. Noire. I haven't played it of course, but I've heard all about the animated movie that it is. Mass Effect is about as much a movie disguised as a game as I want to get into. I can rent a movie for $5 or less, you can shove your $60 ones up your ass Rockstar.

RDR is waaaay too easy, not

RDR is waaaay too easy, not to mention boring and bland as all hell, just the same crap over and over again.
I guess people like games they can beat with their eyes closed, thats why la noir did so well.

People are so predictable and rockstar knows it.

Total mediocrity.

LA Noire

I somewhat liked LA Noire, but not so much as a game. It was more like an interactive story and it was interesting for that reason. You couldn't really lose in LA Noire, however, making it, as a game, not really great.

anonymous

aw that sucks. they should have port it to PC, the only reason people buy RDR is that they lost their copy or they recently bought a console. they would made more money when it arrives in pc. the pc community is waiting for a different open world setting other than GTA clones over and over and over again.
and they are talking about piracy... they should check that console games got pirated too. gears of war 2 was pirated 2 months before release...

oh and umm L.A. Noire sucks ass.

GUN

GUN did pretty well. There's you open world PC western right there. I have all 3 discs sitting beside me. I never really played it though. A few minutes, that's about it.

What the HECK?!!!! corporate greed !!!!!!

What the HECK?! this doesn't make sense at all. All games are DEVELOPED ON PC! games should be built for PC to begin with, and THEN 'ported' to consoles - if games are developed purely for consoles, graphics will always be second rate and the latest technologies will not be used - because consoles use outdated hardware and are not powerful enough!

Nice job.

Finally caught up did you? That's why PC games don't look any better, because they're all made for stagnant console hardware. PC games will look better when the next gen of shit boxes comes out.

What the HECK?! this doesn't

What the HECK?! this doesn't make sense at all. All games are DEVELOPED ON PC! games should be built for PC to begin with, and THEN 'ported' to consoles - if games are developed purely for consoles, graphics will always be second rate and the latest technologies will not be used - because consoles use outdated hardware and are not powerful enough!

So...?

Hardware capabilities are irrelevant... If they make a game that uses all of the technologies available for pc only a small percentage of people will be able to buy it... And guess what? Profits run the show, not fanboys and not hardware...

Consoles have outdated hardware? Of course! Consoles have prehistoric hardware! But consoles have much higher software sales then PCs so its much more profitable to make games for consoles.

If PC users stopped pirating 90% of the games they play, and if they where willing to allow some level of hardware standards (which allows for easier) then PC would start getting a lot more games again.

Hmm

You don't seem to understand how things work. You can make a game with all the technology available for the computer and then easily port it to the consoles by removing the super over the top technology, without harming the actual game/gameplay. PC is actually still the highest profitable game market. Whether it is facebook like games, MMOs, competitive games like Counter Strike or League of Legends/DoTA, or indie games like Minecraft, there is a lot more computers in the world than consoles and thus a larger market. Providing a game with scalable graphics means it will work on all computers and can even be ported to consoles very easily. And people need to stop with the pirating issue. It has already been proven many times that the people who pirate games were never going to buy the game in the first place and that it leads to some buying it, to play the multiplayer most of the time, or them social networking how great the game is helping sales in the long run.

pffft

I was going to make a long post detailing the process of creating a top notch engine with 'scalable' graphics. But since you used words like 'easily' and 'very easily' its obvious I'd be tossing advanced knowledge into someone who lacks the base knowledge required to understand it. To put it simply, you know nothing about software development and your post showed that, clear as day. So I'll settle with this: shut up and go study before you talk kid, making games is HARD work, there's nothing easy about it unless you're making a snakes or pong clone.

Oh really?

I currently am an engine programmer. I do know how they work and I do know that it actually is easy. Most of the problems lie with companies that are not using standard programming practices to allow scalability of not only future content, but also graphics. Building the engine to allow for easy patching of the software's components allows you to add or remove whatever you need whenever you need. It can also let you set up configurations for specific hardware, such as the Xbox 360 or the PS3.

I agree

I would have to agree. I too am a developer and making games available to many different platform is not that hard. The reason why they dont is simple..."Profit". Why release a software title to a platform where the retail price is lower. I admit it, I bought a console just to play a few titles, mainly because my friends didnt have a PC. I paid the 60.00 for the game, where the same title would be 40.00 on a PC. In reality though, gaming is moving back toward the PC. PC gaming sales outnumber those of the console. And piracy is becomming a bigger issue for consoles than PC. Another reason for crappy games is that Microsoft stated that any games that offer more content, or better "playability" on on other platforms, will not be licensed for sale on the 360. In summation, that is your answer.

Indie games

Quite true, but I wouldn't make the claim that console games are selling better than PC. Sure it would be overwhelmingly higher in statistics if we're talking about buying CD's. But if you look at the transactions being made almost hourly in game managers such as Steam, then I would daresay console game sales are more or less in par with the PC.
