So, ya know that cowboy game that everyone, including myself, has been raving about? Well, it's first week sales at retail have been pretty decent, it seems.

After only a few days on store shelves, Red Dead Redemption 2 has had this year's second best physical launch, with only FIFA 19 beating it this calendar year. As well as that, it outsold the 2010 original by 50%, which was to be expected, but still. 

PS4 owners make up 68% of sales, but we don't know digital numbers, sadly. You can only imagine that it made Rockstar a couple of bob on both the PSN and Xbox Stores too.

This has had a knock-on effect at parent company Take Two… eh… too. Stock prices have risen by 9% after taking a dip in the aftermath of Dan Houser's now infamous 100 hour week comments.
