Red Dead Redemption pre-order bonuses releasing as DLC

We could name a number of reasons why you should pre-order a game, but one that everyone can understand is, you get free stuff. For instance, if you pre-ordered Rockstar’s wild west ride Red Dead Redemption, you got the Deadly Assassin outfit for Marston (fastens regeneration of your Dead Eye perk), the Golden Guns (increasing fame per kill) and the War Horse (probably the most bad-ass looking horse in any videogame ever released).

Now, if you didn’t pre-order the game, well, we’re sure you must have noticed the absence of all of the above. No reason to fret though, as Rockstar’s announced that said bonuses will be available as DLC for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 going for $0.99 (USD) and 80 MS Points a piece, respectively, as of next week. Don’t just be a cowboy; look like one, shoot like one, ride like one.
