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.

Only one entertainment property has ever topped that initial three-day total: Grand Theft Auto V, the last game made by Rockstar.

· "What Rockstar has delivered in Red Dead Redemption 2 is not just the best game of the year, but the best game of the decade".

It will be interesting to see how many copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 get sold during the holiday season and to see how Red Dead Online differs from Grand Theft Auto Online.

Rockstar Games' Red Dead Redemption 2 is sort of a big deal.

Money can be tough to come by in Red Dead Redemption 2 and inventory room is limited so you'll want to make sure you unload your extra gear as often as possible.

His forward runs were just as unsafe to Chelsea as to the opponents; both visiting goals came from the space vacated on his flank. With rotation likely, Loftus-Cheek will be one of the favourites to start for Chelsea and could yet again find the net.

Another very positive review came from US Gamer, which lauded its "absolutely attractive open world" with the few drawbacks in the game being the occasional bugs and the somewhat tedious travel across the game world at times.

It was also the most pre-ordered full game in the history of the PlayStation Network, now holds the biggest day one sales record on PSN and also claimed the biggest three-day full game sales stat on PSN. Looking for one of this generation's very best single-player action experiences?

This video depicts the blur effect, showing the game to be somewhat out of focus.

Given the success of GTA Online, Red Dead Online will likely boost revenue from the title even further.

Red Dead Redemption 2 offers a vast world to explore with more than 60 hours of content.
