The Red Dead Redemption bundle has arrived on Microsoft Store. The bundle, including both Red Dead Redemption original and Red Dead Redemption 2, has a crazy price tag and gamers are NOT having it.
As spotted in the Store, the bundle is priced at a whopping $100. Red Dead Online, included at no additional cost with Red Dead Redemption 2 and has been showing diminished presence in the online gaming community for years, is priced at $20. Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for $60, aligning with its cost on the Sony PlayStation Store.
The Red Dead Redemption 2: Story Mode and Ultimate Edition Content package can be purchased for $50, while the comprehensive RDR2 Ultimate Edition carries a price tag of $100.
Rockstar recently faced significant criticism for the “re-release” of Red Dead Redemption 1. The reveal video received an influx of negative reactions on YouTube. The cause? The game was exclusively launched for digital purchase on Sony’s PlayStation 4 consoles and Nintendo Switch, with a physical version slated for release shortly.
However, the pricing at $50 has been met with astonishment. This hefty cost is attributed to a game that is well over a decade old and lacks any remake or remastered elements.
Instead, it’s simply a repackaging of the existing port, devoid of advancements such as a next-gen version for the PlayStation 5, a multiplayer mode, or support for 60 frames per second (fps) gameplay.
