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

I played 1 hour on the PS4 Pro and sold the game, for me it wasn't enjoyable playing at 30fps...
Agreed. I bought Deluxe Digital on PS4 Pro and uninstalled after an hour. Was pretty shit at 30 frames.
