Red Dead Redemption Ships Impressive Numbers

In the past few years we’ve seen our share of western games, and most of them were not received well, so when Take Two decided to release Red Dead Redemption earlier this year it seemed like a pretty big risk. Now, just over six months later, and a game of the year nomination from us (look for our awards next week), things couldn’t look much brighter.

Take 2 has announced during their year-end fiscal report, that the companies annual sales jumped 65%, due for the most part because of the impressive numbers of Red Dead Redemption, which shipped an astounding 8 million units. Now, this is only shipped numbers, but even so that is very impressive, and that should easily make it one of the years best selling games.
