Cowboys are back in town

Same game, less Trophies
Rockstar's upcoming and relatively featureless port of PS3's Red Dead Redemption for PS4 has been garnering a lot of attention of late, mostly negative. We prefer to
Put 'em up
Red Dead Redemption is coming back, but not in the form many fans were hoping for. The PS4 port was announced earlier this week, with Rockstar's official press release pretty much confirming that this version won't boast any enhancements over the PS3 original.

Red Dead on arrival?
Rumours of a Red Dead Redemption return have been doing the rounds for years.

The Uncharted movie, while critically panned, did very well at the box office, Sonic the Hedgehog and its sequel broke records, and HBO's The Last of Us show has been extremely well received. The latest doing the rounds is the
Git along, little Dogies
Red Dead Redemption was a landmark achievement in game design, one that few studios have managed to replicate in the more than a decade since the cowboy epic was released. But, like the age of the Wild West itself, Red Dead Redemption has become a relic of a bygone era, with the title no longer playable on modern PlayStation...
Kotaku corroborates reports
Rockstar has put development of remasters of Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto IV on ice according to a new report from Kotaku. This is so the developer can put all of its efforts into Grand Theft Auto 6. Rumours of such a move had been swirling over the past couple of days because of a
Back in the saddle
A new Kotaku report based on several sources gives an overview of Rockstar's plans to remaster a number of classic titles. The PlayStation 2 GTA games are apparently first on the agenda, but the article also briefly mentions that the developer is prepared to revive Red Dead Redemption. Ever since the
Update: We've since been informed that this supposed leak is almost certainly a fake. On closer inspection, there are a couple of small inconsistencies in the text. We told you not to get your hopes up! Original Story: Here's a juicy new rumour that we pray is real. Apparently, an Amazon listing for something called 'Red Dead Redemption...
