No RAGE Dedicated Server?

Variety has some disappointing news for PC gamers, revealing that that id Software's upcoming RAGE will likely not include dedicated server support. After we learned Modern Warfare 2 would not include a dedicated server they posed the question to id technical Director John Carmack, who answered: "Itís not cast in stone yet, but at this point no, we donít think we will have dedicated servers." Mr. Carmack also seems to appreciate Infinity Ward being the first ones out of the foxhole on this issue, saying: "The great thing is we wonít have to be a pioneer on that," he says. "Weíll see how it works out for everyone else." Speaking of which, Activision says they are "not overly concerned" by MW2 PC complaints.

maybe whats needed is for the big money to fuckoff to the consoles where it belongs. Stick it in the musty hole of those willing to be sticked. there's a certain point where bigger isn't better anymore, and pc gaming reached that point several years ago when the equation for money well overshadowed the desire to make artful entertainment. it's like the dev's have all become shitty's 80's cover bands that rot out the old dingy bars, playing on the past successes of others til their livers give out. give the torch back to those that actually want to carry it for the sake of carrying the fucking thing, not because of how much money you could make on sponsorship deals afterward.
