Killer Red Dead Redemption 2 Deal: Save $100 Off Xbox One X Or S
Red Dead Deal.
Update: In addition to the original offer from GameStop, this deal is also available at Amazon (just add both items to your cart to see the discount), Newegg, and the Microsoft Store. It's arguably become even more tantalizing now, as a technical analysis shows that the game looks and runs best on Xbox One X. The original story follows.
Any game as big as Red Dead Redemption 2 is probably going to be a system-seller--and if you've read or watched our Red Dead Redemption 2 review, you know why. There is a nice new deal for the Xbox One family of systems to consider if you're thinking about picking up Rockstar's open-world western. If you're in the market for an Xbox One S or Xbox One X, you can save $100 if you buy Red Dead Redemption 2 from GameStop between now and November 3.
That's a killer deal for anyone who's looking to buy a new Xbox One and RDR 2 anyway. If you need help choosing between the two console models, you can check out our Xbox One S and Xbox One X reviews to get the full rundown on what features each one includes. We've also done an in-depth comparison of the models.
It's also worth noting that Red Dead Redemption 2 is an Xbox One X-enhanced game, meaning it runs in 4K and supports HDR when played on an Xbox One X connected to a TV with the corresponding features. (The S also supports HDR, but not native 4K--it's confusing).
As for the new game, it's a prequel to the 2010 original and takes place in 1899 and finds the Van der Linde gang on a crime spree in the Old West. You play as a man named Arthur Morgan this time around, though the previous game's protagonist, John Marston, also makes an appearance.
