250°
217w ago - Today SCEE Content Producer James Gallagher has posted up answers to several Red Dead Redemption PS3 questions from fans in the community.

How significant a role will Auto-Aim have? Will we be able to turn it off and manually aim? (Milos-san, Poland)

Yes, you can switch your settings to free aim in both single and multiplayer games, but Red Dead Redemption's default setting isn't Auto-Aim: it's a snap-to-target system that helps you fine tune your own aiming.

We've implemented three levels of difficulty in the game that are primarily based around changes to targeting, which is something we have never done on a game before, but felt was useful on this game as some people may want to play it as a shooter and some as more of an adventure.

On the Casual setting, you have a full auto-lock targeting system, making for a much easier experience all around. On the Normal setting, you will snap to a target, but once you move the right stick you're in free aim. Expert mode is...

Red Dead Redemption Box Art Reveals Exclusive PS3 Content

400°
219w ago - Yesterday we saw the launch trailer for Red Dead Redemption on PS3, and today Examiner.com (linked above) has revealed that the PlayStation 3 version will be getting some exclusive content similar to what was done in Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Additionally, the rear box art indicates Red Dead Redemption will require 600MB of PS3 HDD space for the installation.

To quote: "Very similar to Batman: Arkham Asylum, which had the exclusive feature of playing as the Joker, Red Dead Redemption will also feature some exclusive to hopefully sway the consumers mind towards the PS3 version.

It did work with Batman and the title ended up outselling the Xbox 360 likely due to that reason.

The exclusive content will be Solomon's Folly Gang Hideout and Walton Gang Outfit - according to the retail box. The content is included for free and packed in the game's casing."
