Rage's Graphics Won't Be as Pretty on 360 Due to Storage Issues; New Trailer
The video above is from QuakeCon, and it shows off the newest IP from id, Rage, which will combine FPS and driving action with a post-apocalyptic setting. Looks pretty sweet, doesn’t it? Well, don’t expect the same quality of visuals on the Xbox 360 version. The game‘s creator, John Carmack, recently revealed that the 360 version would have to be scaled back visually due to some storage issues. Apparently, the royalty fees for a third DVD were too high to make that a viable option. Instead, the developers will have to compress the game even further to fit it on two DVDs. On the flipside, the PS3 version will be shipping on a single Blu-Ray disc, while the PC and Mac versions will release in both Blu-Ray and DVD formats. So basically, if you have the option, you might want to skip the Xbox 360 version of this game whenever it comes out.
