Rage is headed to PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 id veteran and programming genius Carmack said the toughest technical accomplishment was getting the game to run at 60fps on all formats.

Ahh, Here We Go Again, First "Crytek" Now "id Software".

Doom 3 on Xbox looked amazing for the H/W it was run on, I think if anyone can pull it off ID can; they have some of the best programmers around.

Lookup jace hall show, one of the last episodes shows new rage footage on 360; basically best looking 360 game i've seen.

I think he might be right..only time tells though.

malamdra2473d ago

not even close according to the vids released so far

both Uncharted games, both PS3 Killzone games, God of War 3, Metal Gear 4, Crysis 2, al look better than Rage

malamdra: What the heck have you been smoking son. I mean seriously lmao!!

I agree with ya for the most part. id does have an awesome track record....So I just checked out the footage you mentioned from the Jace Hall show, and that's where I disagree. Especially when Jace said it was the best looking console game he had ever seen. In my opinion, Gears 3 looks better. I know I'm not seeing it on my own tv, but that was direct feed footage if I'm not mistaken. Still though, I mos def plan on getting Rage.

@mezzo- Problem? If Carmack wants to say that he has the best looking console game to date...why isn't he allowed to voice his opinion?

DelbertGrady2473d ago

He's not a 1st party developer for Sony. Only they are allowed (by the N4G mob) to utter such claims. Nevermind that id have been pioneers in graphics since Doom.

Biggest2473d ago

Where in mezzo's post did he say anything about quieting Carmack's opinion? He simply voiced his opinion about someone else's opinion. Why isn't mezzo allowed to voice his opinion? Nevermind that Carmack never pioneered anything on closed consoles since ever.

LOGICWINS2473d ago (Edited 2473d ago )

@Biggest- I never said mezzo couldn't have his opinion, I was merely questioning why he had that particular opinion.

@MysticStrummer- I was just pointing out that its okay for a dev to say that they think that their game looks better than others. From mezzo's comment, I got the impression that he thought that devs weren't allowed to do this.

MysticStrummer2473d ago

And if mezzo wants to point out that this claim has been made before and proved false, which it has... Problem? Also, Carmack says it's arguable, not that it's truth set in stone. If it's arguable, people should be able to offer another opinion without being jumped by the usual trolls. But... we are on N4G after all.

*looks at picture*
Really?....Wow, you are such a fanboy

OT: that is a strong claim. I could believe it if he said on 360 or something like that, but even then it's still a strong claim

Crytek claimed this and while the game looks good, it takes A LOT of hits in draw distance, texture, AI and more to achieve this, and although it does have great lighting, it doesn't look THAT good, so I'm not sure if I would actually believe this

-....-e go again.. -.- ZZZzzzzZZZ

Crytek was right.

Why won't iD be right too?

Why won't DICE and their BF3 perhaps be the best when it comes out? Console graphics software advances and unfortunately Fanboys sacred cows don't.

MysticStrummer2473d ago

Troll nonsense. That's what never changes. No honest person with functional vision thinks Crytek was right.

zero_cool2473d ago

id software can back it up unlike crytek & id softwares track record proves it!

KDubyah2473d ago

Lol, DICE is saying the same thing with Battlefield 3. :)

Well i am happy that it's 60FPS on all platform, let wait and see if what Carmack said is true or not.

ian722473d ago

All developers seem to be saying this lately.

bumnut2473d ago

True, but this is coming from the devs who invented the fps.

thekiddfran2473d ago

Naughty dog of released an official response!

That pic has been old since it was 1st used

Humour or humor (see spelling differences) is the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement. The term derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which taught that the balance of fluids in the human body, known as humourous (Latin: húmor, "body fluid"), control human health and emotion.

And if your joke's not funny...and it's just a stale old meme/animated gif that you saw on NeoGAF three years ago...well..intended humor or not it's just not funny.
