Three important things to notice about this screenshot.
1. It’s gross and horrifying
2. It’s made by John Carmack’s company (Id Software)
3. It’s going to look worse (better) on the PS3
However all three of those things are overshadowed by our last article where John Carmack himself said that the 360 is the better platform to develop on. So why now is he coming out and saying that his new title RAGE is going to look better on the PS3.
This is purely down to the fact that the uncompressed graphics for the game are over a terabyte and since it needs to be compressed down to two DVD’s they have had to use a different type of compression ratio which just isn’t as good as the PS3’s option. Since the PS3 has all that storage space to play with.
However what’s possibly the most surprising aspect of the entire story is that it is being featured on TeamXbox.com. I have to say it is nice to see a fanboy site posting bad news about its console of choice, there are some other sites that can learn from this.
