Well, *bleep* you very much... I thought this game was going to look amazing. Now that it's limited to the capabilities of the console versions, albeit higher resolution, I have doubts.. many doubts. I'm all for equality on the platforms, the equality of pushing each system to its limits, not limiting it to what the xbox360 can handle.

Oh come on can you seriously be disappointed with that? I mean have you seen this game even on the PC there is probably not much they could upgrade to make it look any better. They already have the whole 26k resolution textures thing going on, they already have some of the best particle physics in the industry and the best lighting model a game has ever seen.

What else do you want from this game I mean right now your only concern should be "does it play nicely on PC with mouse and keyboard" and the most important thing is that iD have confirmed that it will.. I mean on all platforms this game looks pretty, it is arguably the best looking game ever made what more can you ask for... I'm going to file this under PC gamer wanting too much from an already excellent looking game. By the way it is limited to what the PS3 can handle which is much much more..

He's annoyed because one of the main draws of PC gaming is supposed to be the fact that PC maintains graphical superiority over the consoles.

It's like, hmmmm, having a 1080p HDTV and being forced to stick with a 720p video because most other people with TVs have just 720p and the producers of video just decide 'not to bother, we want everything equal'....(or, to be more analogous to gaming, having a PS3 disk game that's only 4GB on disk because the 360 version is only 4GB)

It's doubly bad considering the developer's history is rooted in PC gameplay.

I loved Doom, Quake, Quake II, Quake III, but ever since Doom3 shrunk their vision along with the in game environments and the amount of enemies on screen, id has been losing me. I actually liked the PC version of ET:QW and even bought the 360 version against my own better judgment just because I wanted to play it (it was horrible btw). But id games have been impressing me less and less lately. Even though I liked playing them and played the games thoroughly, I hated the direction that the Quake IP went after the first game actually. I liked the organic enemies in the first game much better than all the robotic or cybernetic ones. Plus there was a "spook house" quality to the Doom and Quake games that has been lost since Quake II. I doubt they have any intention of recapturing any of that atmosphere with Rage given the post apocalyptic theme, so although mega texture is an awesome tech and Rage looks very impressive graphically, I haven't much interest. As an aside, isn't it time to expand the color palette a bit?

If they are all equal then the game is limited to the worst systems highest settings/enhancements, the 360, not the ps3. I feel that the ps3 players are also getting screwed, albeit a bit less than pc users.

Just because you have low standards from playing console games does not mean everyone else has to. I may have been a bit harsh but *bleep* ID and other companies who turn their back on who made them who they are.

And making controls PC centric on a fps is a weak pass off of, "Well... we really didn't do anything for you so we're going to act like we did and say that the controls will be good for PC." Heads up, it's hard to mess up FPS controls for PC. I think they would actually have to try to mess it up.
