    If Carmack says it is hard, it is hard. This guy has coded more FPS code than the next 3 guys below him.
    He will nonetheless find a way, Obama got his motto, Yes,We Can from Carmack,lol

    The more I hear about Rage, the more I think it might be Fallout 3... done right. ;)

    Other than that, I agree with Gunsmith.

    Despite regular evidence to the contrary in most things... I do tend to remain optimistic. :p

    If you don't laugh you'll cry, right?

    maybe if the PC market wasn't flooded with copied version of everything on the planet, maybe, just maybe this would of been a PC only release, but time and time again developers know they get a good return on console development.

    Take COD for example, Infinity Ward know that the 360 version will sell more copies than the PC, so for them not to pay attention to the console market would be a stupid idea and the this series of games would of never reached the acclaim that it has achieved.

    So you dont think Xbox 360 has a piracy problem? lol
    Every game is easily available to download, normally well before UK release dates eg. Ghostbusters.
    Console piracy is more tempting because of the ridiculous prices and awful FPS controls.

    I'm not sure where in this thread anyone mentioned piracy, he was just referring to raw figures, CoD4 sold more on the xbox 360 than it did on the PC.

    Consoles do have piracy, this is very true, but it's much less widespread than PC piracy. Think about it, what do you need to pirate a game on a PC? A PC, that's it. For a console, you need the console, then you need to open it up and add in hardware, invalidating your warranty, risking a permanent ban for that console and your account of it's online capabilities (for the 360 at least). Console piracy is much less accessible than PC piracy is. I know many people with 360s, none of them have a modded xbox, they've all downloaded PC games in the past.

    All you need is a PC, Broadband, and a burner, not exactly rocket science. £40 tops to flash your Xbox and games cost roughly 50p each to burn. Simples

    Firstly you dont need to add hardware to play copied games on 360, it dosent effect your warranty as the sticker now slides off and back on again! It cost the price of 1 game for endless almost free games. And by the way, ever heard of Stealth patching your ISO before you burn? Its un-detectable online, so no negatives from where im standing.
    Im a PC gamer but i just want to open peoples eyes to the fact that its just as easy to pirate console games, considering most households now own a PC.

    because you need a base of users to actually play said pirated games...
    My PS£ *cough* PS3 is gathering a layer of dust until I find a game that doesn't play and look better on the 360.

    P.S. Awaits the legion of fanboys to start quoting unreleased games with "true next gen graphics" - what a ploy!

    I didn't realize a user base barely 8 million behind it's competitor constituted not having one at all.

    Piracy at least sells consoles. Id never dream of shelling out £40 for the shite ive played so far, with a very few exceptions.
    PS2 is outselling PS3 so hardly a good advert for the non pirated PS3. Both Xbox and Wii are fully available to flash and play backup copies "cough" and both console sales are very healthy.
    Games developers need to spend more time on gameplay and stop wasting so much time and money on purely graphics and anti piracy, maybe then games could be cheaper, more fun and people on a budget might dip in their pocket more often.
    All the talk of Modern Warfare 2 at £55 is gonna kill the industry!

    its only a matter of time until they get the engine working properly on the PS3... remember that they won;t be selling only RAGE but the whole IDtech5 engine!! The guy itself showcases the damn engine while showing RAGE

    It will be bad business for ID to release a slow running RAGE for the PS3, discouraging the already discouraged PS3 GameDev Crew
