    It will come to PC but if GTA is anything to go by the PC version will take a year or two more of development work from them. They don't do a PC port but really build PC version for the PC. That gets a lot more features (in terms of options) that PC power users want. Performance is also likely to be much better on PC.

    Ya should, it's worth it. Gamers follow the games no matter where they go.

    If you can wait, I am fairly confident it will come to PC just a year or so later.

    but why would you want to, I've spent more on a video card for a game - bought a 980 to play TW3 with pretties, worth it.

    But just like that card there are other console exclusive games that make the purchase worth it in the long run.

    That and there's nothing wrong with buying the game twice and playing it twice - I know I did that for GTA5 when no PC release was on the horizon, bought a PS3 from the forums to play it - I regret nothing!

    I've got both, I was more talking about for this game, if you can wait the PC version should be worth it. I bought GTA twice cause of this very reason. Hoping I will have more self control with RDR2 :Pirate:

    as if you will :)

    Also I just realised this means roamin hasn't played the first game.

    Dude, you should get on that - it still holds up.

    Cheapest way to get the first game and be ready for RDR2 would be to grab an XBOne as you can play RDR on backwards compatible.

    Why Red Dead Redemption Was, and Still Is, Such a Damn Good Game

    hard to convince the missus i need a new console when i just spent a heap on a new pc upgrade lol.

    pc parts are easier to hide compared to a console in the lounge room. :weirdo:

    Some of us have transcended, and learned that you just hang around them until they get annoyed, and then you can game all you want.

    mine knows gaming makes me happy so is fine with me playing and spending money on my hobby. :)

    Bought me a PS4 which I was super happy about even though I would have been just as happy to wait for them to come down in price and buy a used one.

    I dont even need a remake of RDR, Just having a PSN copy I can play on the PS4 would be great

    I booted up the PS3 a while back to play it, but the PS3 feel so clunky after using the PS4

    It didn't start out that way. There was a major update about a year back that totally killed it.

    The cynic in me likes to think Sony did that to intentionally make it feel slower, and push people to PS4.

    The PS3 definitely feels slower than I feel it ought too, especially when you go side by side with a 360.
