High Noon on Friday. Red Dead Redemption on Xbox One

Red Dead Redemption Xbox One BC

Friday. It’s the day I’ve been waiting for since first hearing about Xbox One’s backward compatibility feature. Red Dead Redemption will be playable on Xbox One this Friday.

It’s actually not the first time it’s been playable on Xbox One. A bunch of folks gained access to it back in February, but it was quickly removed by Microsoft. They claimed it was a “test.” Well, the test is over. Get ready to play John Marston’s adventure again.

And if you got rid of your disc, or haven’t played it before – it’s on sale this week for $10.49 ($7.49 for Gold members).

Hell yes! Finally. Red Dead Redemption on Xbox One. I had been thinking about buying a used Xbox 360 over the past few weeks just to play it again. I’m glad I held off. Now, I just have to decide between playing the singleplayer or jumping on its awesome multiplayer.

Mexican standoffs at the beginning of every match? It doesn’t take long for hilarity to ensue on Red Dead Redemption. Or, do I just throw sticks of dynamite at other people in Free Mode? Decisions, decisions.

Alright Rockstar Games, now that we have Red Dead Redemption coming via Xbox One BC – where’s the sequel?

GTA V-style heists in a western setting? I’m not one to pre-order games, but I would in a heartbeat if that was announced.

So what are you playing first this Friday? Story, or multiplayer? Let me know in the comments.
