John Carmack on PC & Console Hardware

Carmack speaks out on hardware issues on Eurogamer reflects comments from the id Software technical director that while it would be "great" if the console life-cycle would be longer, the lure of "first mover advantage" will probably "be far too tempting" and will inspire an acceleration of the release of new hardware. Thus he hopes that Rage will hit store shelves during the sweet spot of the current console cycle, "and not when everybody knows what's coming next Christmas." He concludes with a discouraging outlook for the PC, as he feels that no amount of console missteps will reestablish the PC as the dominant gaming platform:

I think there are inherent challenges for the PC platform that consoles don't have that I would be surprised to see that desktop PC box making Sony and 360 and Wiis and everything obsolete. I don't think that's going to happen.
