Red Dead Redemption Trailer

Here comes the launch trailer for “Red Dead Redemption”,  one of this month’s most anticipated releases.  Originally set to be in stores, last month, “Redemption” was pushed back at the eleventh hour – but now the wait is almost over.  Rockstar’s sandbox western hits shelves tomorrow.

I know you’ve seen it already, but I can tell that you wanna see it again.

The Games of May, 2010

May looks to be a high-profile month in the video game world.  While the centerpiece of this treasure trove of potentially epic games is definitely the return of everyone’s favorite princess-saving plumber, but it by no means overshadows other long-awaited titles like “Lost Planet 2”, “Alan Wake” and “Red Dead Redemption.”  Mark your calendars, everyone.

Publisher Pushes Back “Red Dead Redemption” Release

Publisher Take-Two announced today that they will be delaying the release of Rockstar’s upcoming western, Red Dead Redemption, by a about a month.  The game was originally set to ship on April 27’th, but Take-Two said that resetting the launch to May 18’th would be; “…the optimal time frame to release what is being hailed as the next generation of sandbox games.”

The only notable change between the two dates is that “Redemption” now falls in the third quarter of Take-Two’s fiscal year:   Most likely, Take-Two shifted the release to somehow make the company look better for its shareholders.  Since Rockstar had nothing to do with the shift, it makes sense to believe that the delay was not over development issues.
