I saw an advert on Vuzu either before, during, or after The Verge aired live last night. I can’t remember when, but it showed Red Dead Redemption, and it had a big bold date slapped on the screen at the end which read “21 May 2010”.
Then as I was going through my feeds, I saw that this is indeed the date that the game will be arriving in local stores in SA: Friday, 21 May, 2010 – which is today. Megarom confirmed this to LazyGamer.
Reportedly, if you have preordered the title, then you might have a problem getting it on this exact date due to the Icelandic volcano, but you’ll have to take it up with the retailer.
