The game launched to reviews heaping praise on the ambitious title, but it appears fans were already convinced to purchase it, as it broke the records for most pre-ordered full game ever on PlayStation Network.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on Xbox One and PS4. It also generated the highest day one sales and highest sales for the first three days on the market in PlayStation Network history. Rockstar Games announced today that Red Dead Redemption 2 achieved entertainment's biggest opening weekend of all time with three day sales topping $725 million.

In case you didn't know, in Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar Games has made it so that you can't just magically grow a beard if and when you shave it off. The eagerly anticipated sequel to one of the last generation's best games was always going to make a heck of a lot of money - but nobody expected it to have the best opening weekend of any product in the history of media entertainment. That honor also goes to Rockstar Games for "Grand Theft Auto V", which earned more than $1 billion in sell-through in its first three days.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is very popular with the Twitch crowd.

Highest first three-day sales on the PlayStation Network.

And Jefferies analyst Timothy O'Shea told Barron's stronger sales bodes well for future add-on microtransaction revenue for Red Dead Online, which is the multiplayer portion of the game that launches in November.
