RAGE Faster on PC, 360

Computer and Video Games has some news from the new print issue of EDGE Magazine about RAGE, id's upcoming first-person shooting/driving game. Speaking to id Technical Director John Carmack, Edge learned that in its current state, RAGE, powered by id's new Tech 5 engine, runs at 60 frames-per-second on PCs and Xbox 360, but only 20-30 FPS on the PlayStation 3. Carmack says: "The RSX is slower than what we have in the 360. The CPU is about the same, but the 360 makes it easier to split things off, and that's what a lot of the work has been, splitting it all into jobs on the PS3." It is not specified what improvement over that, if any, can be expected by the time the game is released. The article also confirms a Mac edition of the game is still in the works.

sony's mistake was in assuming people would embrace innovation and the possibility to explore new opportunities.. they should have known people are too stupid and lazy to give a shit

That is without a doubt one of the STUPIDEST posts I have ever read.

oh look another clueless ps3 fanboy....

The only inovator this time around was Nintendo. Now Microsoft and Sony are going to try and one up them. The PS3 is the LEAST innovative of the 3 consoles. Sega went the complex processor route with the Saturn almost 15 years ago. It didnt work for them either.
