Just saw a couple newsfeeds on this. I never played it back when it came out. My buddy always called it a Red Dead Rip-off. I want to try it though, but if it’s download only I’ll probably pass.

It was rated for a physical release in North America.

I'm not sure about a physical release in other regions though.

Certainly can't find anything about any Europe version, at all.... Could always import, if you wanted to, though

Anybody here ever played Gun on PS2, Xbox or Gamecube? Now there's a game I'd like to see make a comeback! that was a fun western themed game! Never played call of Juarez but I'm interested.

It’s certainly not a Red Dead rip-off. Your buddy probably said that just because of the wild west theme, but that would be kind of like saying that Red Dead is a Gun.Smoke rip-off, or that The Witcher is a Zelda rip-off.

Isn't everything a rip off these days? Platformers rip off Mario, Every open world game is a Gta ripp off etc. Hard to stay original after nearly 40 years of videogames.

Most video games are a rip-off of concepts that exist in the world around us. #RIP_Originality

I’m actually getting pretty stoked for this now. We should get a release date on whatever Techland says on Oct. 24th.

With this coming out i can only I hope one day Ubisoft can port Red Steel 2 to Switch. That game is an underrated gem.

I don't enjoy suffering alone. However, I don't mind making others suffer alone.

I'm reading Machimaho, Baki, and Magical Girl Apocalpyse.

Ugh, my heart is broken.

Call of Juarez is another physical release that's just a code-in-a-box.

I really don’t get these code-in-box releases... just waste of plastic.

Just in case my thanks in the comments section was missed, thanks to Liam Doolan for the kudos in the Call of Juarez article. It wasn't necessary, but I appreciate the gesture.

It’s for marketing/selling purposes. Even though they took the cheaper route and only made a digital version to save on cartridge cost, the physical case is just that, a physical product to be on store shelves. So when Auntie Whoever or Grandma is strolling by shopping for the holidays they may grab it. Also for even hardcore gamers to see it in case they don’t normally check the eShop releases.

Lastly, and I know I’m not alone, but also in the minority here. I love to have the physical case to have it with the rest of my game collection. I 100% prefer a physical cartridge but when it’s a game I really want regardless I’m super happy they did a physical case for it. (COJ Gunslinger, Overwatch, & Wolfenstein Youngblood) @JoakimZ

This port is awesome. I picked up my copy at my local Gamestop last night. Real fun game so far. @JaxonH

I'm going to hold off and see if a boutique company will put it on a cart. Codes in a box are infuriating and quite frankly, I'm amazed it's a thing these days. Unbelievably naff for the hobby.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

Boutique company? What do you mean? An I don’t like it anymore than you do though. I’m a strictly physical copy person myself and only do digital on extremely rare scenarios and/or when I have no choice and really want the game. So far it’s only happened 3 times for me on Switch like I mentioned above.

...but you do know why it’s a thing, we just don’t like it. It’s simple, the developers wanted to save money on the expensive cartridges just like we try to save money in our own personal lives anyway we can. Switch cartridge making is very expensive from what I’ve read on multiple articles in the past. By paying for the cheaper physical case & cover art only as a marketing scheme to have people visually see the product will increase sales. @GrailUK
