Bethesda: RAGE Assets Are Identical Across All Platforms
Wait, wait...we've heard this somewhere before.
Amidst a flurry of rumors that id Software's RAGE will be slightly inferior on the PlayStation 3, the developers have responded to the concerns. According to Destructoid, Bethesda claims that all three upcoming versions of the hotly anticipated game will be identical. Said marketing chief Pete Hines:
"We also had RAGE running on PS3 in the press room [at QuakeCon] for folks to do their previews. We are very pleased with the PS3 version of RAGE. One of the cornerstones of the new idTech5 technology is that all assets are identical across all platforms. The experience that players have will be the same on all three platforms."
Yeah, well, that's not likely to halt the skepticism and arguments. PC-oriented developers typically generate products that look and run better on PC and Xbox 360; the PS3 versions are often found lacking. At the very least, though, the differences have been relatively minor and as the generation progresses, developers fare better with the PS3 when it comes to multiplatform games.
And we are excited for RAGE. It could be one of the year's best...
