1UP is reporting some strange differences between the PS3 and the Xbox360 version of Red Dead Redemption. Its been known that there would be some exclusive content for PS3 owners but nothings been said for Xbox360 owners. Well it turns out that the Xbox360 owners are getting a higher resolution game. The PS3 version of the game is being reported to run at 640p while the Xbox360 version is being reported to run at 720p with 2x anti-aliasing. This seems to be a trend in Rockstars games. When GTA IV came out Joystiq reported that the PS3 version was running at 640p and the Xbox360 at 720p.
On top of the resolution differences 1UP is also reporting that Red Dead Redemption wont allow Xbox360 gamers with to play the Free Roam mode over LAN using the Xbox360s system link.
Red Dead Redemption was released today in North America and is scheduled to be released to the rest of the world May 21. The game is a successor to the game Red Dead Revolver which was release in 2004 for the PS2 and the original Xbox.
