Should I buy Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4 or wait for PC in December?

1) I am not buying Red Dead Redemption 2 from Rockstar, ever since owning GTA and trying to use their old piece of crap downloader/patcher, I'd rather take my chances with steam.

2) I have a PS4 Pro and was about to get Red Dead Redemption 2 on there, as I did plan to since it wasn't being announced for PC (bloody Rockstar is pissing me off with their timing).

So, the question as the thread states, to wait for PC release in December or just get it now (I feel console is more natural since RDR was on console).

Thoughts?

Just a side note though - R350/R400 for RDR2 second hand on PS4 vs a potential R700+ on PC is what is pushing me to just get it on console now rather .
I am not keen to spend another R600+ (bought GTA V Pre-order on PC) again on Rockstar Games when they have the cheek to make us wait a year to get it on my primary platform.

I'm personally waiting for PC release. Mainly because all my friends are PC players and they PC release will likely be far superior to Console in terms of graphics. That said though, if they don't announce a release by Mid 2020 I'll buy it for PS4

Depends. Right now it's up to personal preference seeing that you have both. But December you most likely have more time to play. So why not just get it in December. Also PC can just run better. Never know

Sell your ps4 pro ;)
Nah, there are plenty other exclusives still to play. I only just finished UC4 and started Horizon Zero Dawn, yoh these games would have been awesome on a PC but anyways.

Apparanty Detroit Become Human is coming to PC as well so that's something to look forward to as well.

I also purchased PS4 as the singleplayer/ local multiplayer offline gaming platform. Not going to use it online, sticking to PC for my online gaming.

can someone explain Red Dead Online?????
I can't find gameplay for it. doesn't seem like GTA Online????
Not too sure but it seems :


Shootout & Team Shootout
Classic gunfight modes with unlimited lives. Compete to rack up the most kills before the timer runs out. Sudden death will trigger in the event of a tie: whoever gets the first kill wins.
Make it Count
A true test of resourcefulness in two game modes: use nothing but a bow and a handful of arrows or throwing knives to be the last one standing. With a gradually shrinking player area, there’s nowhere to run.
Most Wanted
A tactical race to the top. Every kill pushes you up the scoreboard, but watch out: the closer to the top you are, the more points everyone else gets for killing you.
Hostile Territory
Work in teams to control the land. Capture a territory to start racking up points: the team with most points wins - or you can win outright by capturing every territory.
Name your Weapon
Demonstrate your personal specialty in this free-for-all or team based match: the trickier the weapon you use to land the killing blow, the more points you get.

That sounds interesting but it's basically a team Deathmatch, free for all, battle Royale type mode, capture the flag/most kills, control the area.

Seems somewhat generic. I think I'll stick with open world gta online

That price just seems cheeky. I know they are throwing in 2 free games but crikey no. I'm sticking to the PS4 edition for now because I can get it for R400.

The PS4 version is shit. I wasted 1600 on Deluxe. Sheer 30 frames shitness. If you can handle that then you'll probably enjoy it. I couldn't.

I'll manage, might suck a little but I'm still living on student sources of income and well, need to try save where I can. So will suck up the 30fps and just enjoy the experience until PC price is R500.

I got the console edition. Played a bit of it, mostly the intro which takes place in a snowy environment. So far, I don't understand what people are bitching about but it looks just fine.

PC version will definitely be miles better but it's not like this is unplayable. So I'm happy with it. Definitely worth the R400 vs extra R600 for a similar campaign experience.

If you decide you'll play multiplayer and/or mod the game then PC version is justifiable but otherwise.

I'm purely playing the campaign so wasn't worth spending more.

It's atleast R250 less than the console versions as launch,
it sucks that they don't have the standard version for say R750, but the special edition at R999 is better value then the other stores standard at $60+

I want to play it online on PC as I only played a month on xbox x, but I'm afraid hackers will ruin the game again.

It was fun, you just need to play with other people to get the best experience, else just avoid online players, in the begging there was allot of grieving but they've added new features that makes it harder for people to just grieve and troll others
