Rage Q&A: Digital Distribution Still Possible

The Interview with id's Tim Willits and Todd Hollenshead on 1Up talks with two of id Software's co-owners about Rage, their upcoming first-person action game.

Come on id get with the program. Digital Distribution is the future.

Game sizes are going up and ISP bandwidth caps are going down sadly. I hope digital distribution isn't hamstrung by ISP's. I've installed a few games well over 10GB
