The message is clear. People still like Red Dead Redemption. So much so that John Marsden's gun-slinging adventures have rocketed to the top of the Amazon Movers and Shakers list after Major Nelson announced that its coming to Xbox One backwards compatibility on Friday. 

Sales are up a staggering 6329% on the Xbox 360 version as of writing and it's now 17 on Amazon's sales rank. It was previously 1,093. The number two game, up 1877% is the game of the year edition that includes the Undead Nightmare DLC.

It's now available for £10.49 on Amazon but if you don't care for the physical edition, it's currently on sale on the Xbox Store for the incredibly reasonable price of £8.74. Regardless of the way you want to get your sharp shooting hands on it, it'll be available to play on Xbox One this Friday.
