'Revolver,' not 'Redemption.'

Sure, Xbox One owners have been able to play Red Dead Redemption since this summer, but Sony fans have been left out in the cold on PlayStation 4. Well, that's sort of changing. The game's progenitor, Red Dead Revolver, is the latest PlayStation 2 port from Rockstar Games to grace the PS4. But unlike past instances, you won't have to wait a week for the game to mosey over to the US PlayStation store from its European counterpart.

Naturally, playing it on PS4 brings 1080p upscaling, support for trophies, Shareplay, Remote Play and, if you haven't sold off your PS Vita or uninstalled the PlayStation app from your mobile gizmo, game manuals via your second screen of choice.

Sure, this feels like getting Google Cardboard when you asked for an HTC Vive for your birthday, but it lays the groundwork for us (possibly, finally, hopefully) getting closer to another Red Dead sequel. Hell, maybe it'll even come out for PC. While I'm dreaming, maybe Sony will put a UHD Blu-ray drive in the PS4 Pro too.
