AMD was too busy burning the midnight oil on BF3!!

But sending out a BROKEN HOTFIX driver is just plain ole crappy! Way to FAIL AMD!!

Yet, neither Id or Bethesda tested them either BUT sure didn't stop them shipping the game though, did it?

lol wut? AMD put out their broken drivers AFTER Rage went Gold and it's somehow the developers fault?

@ Apoc

lol wut? So, are you saying then, that RAGE didn't even ship with AMD drivers? No wonder people were/are having problems if that the case.. And AMD didn't release 'broken' ones until after the game shipped?

Yet it's no blame of Id as developers (going on what you wrote) to ship a broken product?

Apocwhen2475d ago

eh, no. PC games rarely ship with graphics drivers at all. It's up to the PC owner to keep their drivers up to date. The game was developed against the latest ATI drivers at the time. Since the game went gold ATI put out broken drivers (for the Battlefield 3 beta) and it borked up the game.
