    You must only be in your first year of college, because if you were any older you would understand the great complexity that goes into a game as ambitious as this. The games you enjoy nowadays are made by a slew of developers developing for an utterly massive audience. Quality control on a smaller scale does it's job by getting the game playable for the majority of the players. Yes, there will always be issues caused by the millions (yes millions, it's not too unlikely with all the pr that has been generated, as seen here http://www.industrygamers.com/news/red-dead-redemption-outperforms-for-gamestop/ ) Also, the bugs you are referring to are either being worked on, or are going to be worked on for a future patch. All you can do now to help is reporting bugs to the right places, and hope for the best.

                Any news yet when we might be able to watch this film outside the US? It would be nice if R* would consider the world outside of the US, there are quite a few of us...

                  After watching, I was mostly reminded of machinima. I was fan and even slight creator of GTA machinima. I'm putting together a story and stuff so if anybody wants to voice act or act in it, it will be in multiplayer and on xbox 360. You can e-mail me at: yoyopop10@hotmail.com
                  Bear in mind, it is at very early experimental stages. I'm still finding the right character models for the job, devolping a story, and finding out how to film. I'm putting together a 'how to' video that pertains to Red Dead Redemption machinima. If anybody would like to help me devolp the story for my machinima, help me with ideas, or overall help with the making of RDR machinimas, once again e-mail me, or PM at madhattergaming on youtube.
                  P.S. R*, Great game I've played through the story 3 times already!!!

                    @Jackbamm Sorry i think i miss read what you said, did you say developers dont have enough money? Well i think Rockstar for one has plenty of money(GTA IV 100 million). Its just 5 years of development and Red Dead is crashing and theres frame rate issues all sorts of bugs on PS3. You see your not a good company if your company cant change and adapt to new technology. Im at my first year of college and i know this. Why dont Rockstar or any other games company, afraid of change? maybe..... who knows maybe they need better programmers who can learn new things.Or i could be wrong and Microsoft are just paying companys to develope on Xbox i cant find any PS3 screenshots for multiplatform games well until the games released then they might pop up somewhere. But look at all the videos on his site not one of them is of Ps3 and why is that????Just dont get your hopes up for Agent im sure its going to look like GTA IV only in 1970s. No way are they going to develop a game on Ps3 they might create a great looking game that they cant port to xbox and that will be bad for the company so why bother. Come monday morning these comments will be gone.

                      HEY R-Tards! These comments are supposed to be about the short film. If you have a problem R has a support division you can send your whining to. "Wah Wah the 360 version is better" Duh. that's why I bought a 360. Why don't you get on SONY's site and --- about their terrible online play. I bet they don't respond either.

                      RDR is a great game, unfortunately the movie was slow and boring. But it's exactly what I expected when I saw that John Hillcoat did it. "The Proposition" was hard to stay awake to.

                            Well Ravetoda, it's a fact that games are harder to make on the PS3. It takes longer time and have bigger needs than the Xbox 360 development kits, tools etc. While its a fact that 360 games are easier to make, it's also a fact that PS3 can have way better graphics, only problem is that its hard to do, it takes time and money that most developers have. Thats why most 1st party games look best, and generally are best (GOW 3 Ratchet & Clank).

                                  Tenner bet, Rockstar are developing Agent on Xbox 360 then porting it to Ps3, After 6-12 months that Agent is out it will be on Xbox. Its cause its "too hard" to develop on Ps3. Effing useless Rockstar are "oh we are afraid of new technology" Face it your stuck in past with the xbox look at games that are created for and on Ps3 code there excellent. Look at Xbox there all the same level. Im sure GTA IV:Vice City is going to have the same look as GTA IV and if it has the same problems as Red dead on Ps3 has you can go eff urself. With the new patch you still didnt fix the Mo Van Barr issues and the game crashes from time to time(game just freeze's and the game quits to the XMB. First time to ever happen to me on a console) sumtimes i ride into a town and the town hasnt loaded yet. My friend who has a xbox said he hasnt had any problems like mine. Next time do a little better job at porting the god damn game we pay the same price for the game we deserve the same AAA development.

                                    @Jakniphone. I hope you dont mean the ending to the game. that was the worst and most depressing ending ive ever seen in any video game past, present or future. They made the game less fun with that ending

                                      Josh922, i read both your comment, and Lewis' comment, and i must say that some of the things you say do not make sense. First of all, Lewis never said that England was above any other country, he just stated that he wanted that his country should be treated with respect, witch i am sure almost everybody wants for their country.
                                      Second of all if a R* employee said anything bad about him or his country, for no apparent reason, he should tell R*, since that they probably would want to fix that "problem". Also saying he might get his kneecaps busted and so forth, for snitching is ridiculous, he only said something about and employee that might have said something wrong, thats like saying that the clerk at the retailer called you a ---. What he did was the right thing to do.

                                      By now you must think that i hate you, or think your a --- idiot, pest and so forth, but i don't. I just simply disagreed with some of the things you stated in your comment.

                                        LewisHarsley england doesnt deserve respect for thinking its above every other country. and btw id be careful who you snitch on. one day youll snitch on the wrong person and have your knee caps busted and your neck snapped.... britard... at least let him see this b4 you delete my comment R* :)
