    Sales of Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption - Game of the Year Edition on Xbox 360 have skyrocketed since the announcement that Rockstar's acclaimed open-world game will be playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility.
    Amazon's Movers & Shakers list, which tracks sales ranking and notes increases, lists a 6329% rise in Red Dead Redemption sales and currently lists it at as the 17th most popular video game on the site. It was previously at No. 1093.
    [​IMG]The game of the year edition, which includes the Undead Nightmare expansion, has increased in sales by 1877% and is currently the 36th most popular game, previously being No. 712.
    The Duck Hunt Amiibo is also quite popular right now, for some reason.
    Red Dead Redemption will become playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility on July 8. If you don't own the game, it is currently on sale sale this week on Xbox 360 for $7.50/£6.49 for Gold members; for everyone else, it's available for $10.50/£8.47.
    Earlier this year Red Dead Redemption was discovered to be playable on Xbox One through an error that Microsoft quickly fixed.
    On the Xbox Feedback site, only two games have more votes to join the Xbox One's backwards compatibility catalog: Call of Duty: Black Ops II and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. With more than 148,000 votes, Red Dead Redemption was the No. 3 game on the list.
