I can't participate in a discussion about Rage's game design, because I can't get the game to a playable state! Technical trumps design when the technical problems prevent you from even playing the damn game.
There is no excuse for having a game unplayable at launch for large numbers of users on common setups. It shouldn't even be acceptable to say "we'll patch it shortly after release", particularly when it prevents people from playing at all.
