That honor also goes to Rockstar Games for "Grand Theft Auto V", which earned more than $1 billion in sell-through in its first three days.

The biggest of these achievements is the fact that it had the single best opening weekend in the history of entertainment.

Actually, website Rockstar Intel (via PC Gamer) recently discovered certain hidden parameters in Rockstar's companion app for Red Dead Redemption 2, which strongly suggest the game could be hitting the PC in the future.

The Wild West video game Red Dead Redemption 2 has made $725m (£650m) in retail sell-through during its first three days on sale, according to the title's publisher Rockstar.

[Update] Take-Two stock has been surging on the big sales news for Red Dead Redemption 2. But upon launching the game, the early adopters of Red Dead Redemption 2 have struggled to see any difference when playing the game with HDR. There have been few games with three-day sell-through announcements, so it is hard to gauge what the first few days of sales imply about the potential lifetime sales for a given game.

The region could buoy Netflix for years to come if the service can convince even 10% of its inhabitants to subscribe. Further, it issued aggressive guidance for Q4 2018, saying it expected an additional 9.4 million subscribers.


Rockstar Games' Red Dead Redemption 2 is sort of a big deal. Rockstar is planning to release an online multiplayer mode for RDR2, Red Dead Online, this November.

It's actually the second-highest grossing entertainment launch, although Rockstar won't be too unhappy with that, given that the record-holder is Grand Theft Auto V.

Most preordered full game ever on PlayStation Network. We're saying that it beat out every other video game, movie, TV show, book, and so on.

Red Dead Redemption 2 players will want to grab the legendary bear pelt in order to craft an awesome outfit for Arthur Morgan.
