The Red Dead Redemption II PS4 Pro bundle was announced the other day, giving people an opportunity to do what they do best and scrutinize the box for details. RockstarIntel was able to do exactly that and mined out details from the console box to figure out what to expect from Rockstar's upcoming western.

The bundle says that Red Dead Redemption II requires a minimum install size of 105 GB. This puts it ahead of the previous PlayStation 4 record holder, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, which stood at 101 GB. Rockstar's last PS4 game, Grand Theft Auto 4, came in at 65 GB.

While PlayStation 4-exclusive content had already been announced, the console box clarifies that "online content" will stay exclusive to the PS4 for 30 days before going to Xbox One. It is unknown if this is the only content for PlayStation 4 or if there is completely exclusive content and timed exclusive content.

GLAAD Introduces Outstanding Video Game Award

The GLAAD Media Awards are awards designed to shine the spotlight on media for "their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community, and the issues that affect their lives." The awards have been running for 29 years and, for their upcoming 30th year, will be recognizing video games for the first time ever.

The Outstanding Video Game Award is introduced this year for video games with outstanding LGBTQ-inclusive content. While the category has just been introduced and nomination suggestions are still being solicited, GLAAD already has an idea of what they're looking for: "[Outstanding Video Game] Award is given for an interactive experience that includes authentic and impactful LGBTQ characters or storylines. Judging will take into consideration the degree to which the LGBTQ-inclusive content is effectively woven into gameplay, including player agency and the world itself."

Oculus Announces All-In-One VR Gaming Headset Called Oculus Quest

Oculus Announces All-In-One VR Gaming Headset Called Oculus Quest

Facebook and Oculus have announced that a new VR headset called Oculus Quest, making a gaming-focused standalone headset. This means that there's no computer or wires involved, everything you need is in the headset, except for the controllers you use to interact with it.

You can check out two videos below explaining it a bit better. The first, a dramatized introduction to the concept, is funny in just how hard Facebook goes to avoid referring to any other copyrighted properties like Mario or Pac-Man but wants to invoke them.

The second video goes into a bit more detail about the headset itself, but can basically be summarized as the same features as the Oculus Rift but without wires. It is more of a basic primer for VR than a deep dive into the Quest itself.
