Red Dead Redemption 2 has biggest entertainment opening weekend ever


The game had more than $725 million of retail sales worldwide during its first three days, blowing past analysts' expectations.

Another user BLAQKROXSTAR mirrored this sentiment, saying "Yea I exhausted turning off HDR because my video clips looked like trash and the game looks disgusting without HDR".
