PSXE Poll Update: RDR Popular, But GTA Still King
Established, blockbuster, revered franchises get all sorts of respect. And deservedly so.
When we asked whether gamers would rather have the sequel to Red Dead Redemption or Grand Theft Auto V, the majority went for the latter. We're relatively certain Rockstar will deliver both eventually and we're huge fans of RDR, but when it comes right down to it, GTA is GTA. It's gonna rule because...well, we just told you why. It's GTA. However, Rockstar should be happy with the following gained through RDR; there were a significant number of readers who would either prefer an RDR sequel, or desire RDR2 and GTAV about equally.
That's pretty impressive, especially considering that one would hardly call Red Dead Revolver any sort of smash hit; i.e., you probably didn't predict the start of a second awesome franchise with that title. But Redemption redeemed Rockstar in more ways than one and now, we sit anxiously anticipating what should end up being two of the best open-world sandbox games ever created.
This week, we'd like to get your Gran Turismo 5 release prediction. How soured are you? Are you now convinced it just won't make it this year? Are you buying the security reason, which would translate to only a brief delay? Let us know.
