DECGTA: Wild Wild West (Red Dead Redemption)
GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 08:37 PM MDT | By Zidane
So, news on the regular Grand Theft Auto series is a little slow at the moment, and I'd like to take this opportunity to quickly tell you a little about Rockstar Games' next big project... it's a lot like Grand Theft Auto, in a sense, only it takes place in, well, the wild west. The game is called Red Dead Redemption, and it's a massive open world, just like Grand Theft Auto IV. It even runs on the same game engine as Grand Theft Auto IV, so it will probably play a lot like it. Oh, there's multiplayer, too! The first trailer for the game has been out since May, but the second was released very recently. You can check it out below!
For screenshots and additional information on the game, check out the official site. For constant updates, a community forum, and other news you can visit Red Dead Resource, and Rockstar Gaming. The game arrives April 27th, 2010.
DECHas the GTA franchise Peaked?
Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 08:27 PM MDT | By Ash_735
Grand Theft Auto IV was one of the fastest selling games of all time during it's launch, a feat only recently topped by Modern Warfare 2, but in regards to the sales of the handheld game Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and the sales of the Episodes from Liberty City disc at retail, analyst Ben Schachter wonders if the GTA franchise has peaked:
...we must raise an even bigger question: has the Grand Theft Auto franchise peaked? Given the strength of GTA IV in 2008, the question may seem misplaced, but our concern is that the very highly rated new GTA content for Xbox as well as PSP and DS did not perform up to expectations in 2009. Now, we very clearly understand that these do not represent 'true' new GTA titles. However, the fact is that these were compelling titles, attractively priced, and reasonably well-promoted, yet they fell relatively flat
He continued by saying:
We do not mean to pour salt on an open wound, but this does raise questions about the strength of TTWO’s crown jewel. It is an issue we will monitor closely (we also note that we expect increased competition in the open-world action genre in 2010 and beyond)
With comments on other gaming websites where the majority seem to agree with this statement, What do you guys think? Has GTA as a franchise Peaked? Were you disappointed by Grand Theft Auto IV? and What direction would you like GTA as a franchise to go in?
