As far as Rockstar Games is concerned, the focus right now is on “Red Dead Redemption 2,” which is set for release in the Fall of 2017. With that a long way off, players are left with nothing but to make do with what is available right now.

As most know, one of the requests that many have been asking is “Red Dead Redemption” to be playable on the PC. Only game console versions are available but all that could change soon with a bit of a catch.

Come December 6, “Red Dead Redemption” can be played on the PC but limited to gamers who have a PlayStation Now Service (PSN) account, the PlayStation Blog reported. The announcement was made by junior product manager for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Ben Thorpe.

For the ones who have a PSN account, all this should be welcome news – particularly for the ones longing to see “Red Dead Redemption” on the PC. For those who don’t have an account, it means that open-world Western game players will have to shell out some cash to enjoy the IP on their PC. The PlayStation Now annual subscription costs $100 year, Cinema Blend reported.

The annual offer is a big discount to gamers from the original price of $45 per month charge. But paying for a “Red Dead Redemption” PS3 version may not necessarily hit it off well with gamers. It calls to mind the graphics quality, something that will likely disappoint.

Aside from that, “Red Dead Redemption” will need certain requirement to satisfy. This includes a machine running on Windows 7 at the least, a minimum i3 CPU clocked at 2.0 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 300 MB of space for the actual game software.

Aside from “Red Dead Redemption”, there is also the “Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare” expansion available. With the PC version up, many will likely take the cautious route. Apparently, some are still concerned about the graphics, particularly optimization, before deciding to shell out cash and come on board.
