Rockstar Games is going all out with its promotion of Red Dead Redemption, even though the game seems to be selling perfectly fine through word of mouth. As a matter of fact, it’s getting a 30-minute short film that’s poised to premiere on FOX this Saturday. They really want all eyes on their newborn child, huh?
Since these are videogames we’re talking about here, you’ll need to stay up until midnight to watch. Alternatively, you can wait it out for someone to upload it moments after the original airing.
John Hillcoat of The Road fame directed this presumably big-budget machinima production, which I’m not sure how to feel about. At any rate, the characters and world of Red Dead Redemption are enough to have me interested. I am, however, a tiny bit worried about this being dialed down too far for television.
