Carmack: Rage Runs Slower On Playstation 3 Than On Xbox 360 And PC

The PC and Xbox 360 versions of id's Rage runs at more than double the frame rate of the Playstation 3 version, John Carmack revealed.

Currently under development at id Software studios, Rage is a first-person shooter and racing video game which utilizes the company's latest id Tech 5 graphics engine.

Currently, the Playstation 3 version of Rage runs at no more than 20 to 30 fps while the PC and Xbox 360 versions maintain a solid 60 fps.

"The PS3 lags a little bit behind in terms of getting the performance out of it," John Carmack said. "The rasteriser is just a little bit slower - no two ways about that."

"The RSX is slower than what we have in the 360. The CPU is about the same, but the 360 makes it easier to split things off, and that's what a lot of the work has been, splitting it all into jobs on the PS3," he explained.

look everyone know that the 360 has better gpu and the ps3 has more cpu cores ..just except it that some games need more gpu power and some games run better with more cpu power..its a lesson that us pc owners have had to learn many time before case in point flight sim x once i bought a really good graphics card and the game run like poo , only to find out that it loves a fast cpu .you cant expect to systems that took slightly different routes to power to run all games the same so LIVE WITH IT

Screw you Sony. I have been hearing many bad things about your hardware, now It's confirmed by a pioneer in the gaming business. It's official folks, Xbox360 is twice as fast as the PS3. I'll be selling off my PS3 now that I know all the facts. Thanks JohnCaramak, thousands of us will now be selling off our PS3'S for a brand new shiny XBOX360.

i have both machines and my midget wii over in the corner somewhere.i do agree that the ps3 is better hardware, and has better looking games, 360 is just an average modern day console to me, lots of good games, and lots of bad ones. now since this "rage" runs better on 360 bs is out, it gives the fanboys room to spread their wings, but if they knew the technicalities of programming for the ps3, they would understand that it can actually run better on the ps3 if utilized properly, but multiplat games are almost never in favor of the ps3, since the 360 is the bigger market.

All of you that say carmack is the tard need to get educated before posting. He has done more for us than your dumb asses ever will. You are just ignorant and can cry till all the pussy juice in your moms vag runs dry. Since sony was foolish and made it so difficult to code for problems happen but will be fixed. End of story. I'm probably arguing with 8 yr olds so maybe I'm the tard.

u f**king idiots who bought PS3 and say SUPERIOR hardware u have no f**king clue do you? What the f**k is more superior? CELL? 2 Tflops that DO NOTHING for graphics, NOTHING. And since blue ray doesnt render graphics neighter you idiots are f**ked with s**ttier games. ITS A DAMN FACT that most crossplatformers look worse on PS3 so shut the f**k up there also.

I have a PC, an Xbox360 and a Wii. I was interested in the PS3(mainly because of it's exclusive titles, ofc.) since it'll probably get a price drop next year. (Maybe even this year?) But when I see how desperate the PS3 owners are for acknowledgement, I'm starting to wonder if it's really worth it. They don't even respect one of the greatest programmers ever, and that's just sad.

"lol Idiot. If anything fails it is Carmack. Other FPS games out there run faster on PS3 with more pixels. This simply shows the tard can't code for the PS3 and doesn't want to learn. Translated it should read 'I Coded for PC and when I ran it on the PS3 it ran like s**t, I'll just blame the hardware instead of my ineptitude'"you have no f**king idea do you

all of you need to stfu and buy a decent PC. If you want the best gaming machine so badly that you have to c0me here and argue over PS3 and Xbox then go and buy yourself a gaming PC, then you will have the best hardware, graphics, physics and gameplay.Until some sort of benchmark test c0mes our for console we will never know which is best cos all we have is "word of mouth"Personally, i think they are evenly matched but ps3 are built better, i repair xboxes so i know how much they break and why (usually cos of cheap materials eg. solder cant withstand the temperatures very well = cheap solder)

Xbox is three cores, PC is generally two now. PS3 has 7 threads, 1 reserved for OS. Carmack needs to split his game into 7 workable threads for the PS3 to be able to properly run the game. Basically it's going to take more work for a not so significant performance improvement. And odds are they are just going to go with something that is "good enough" because the damn thing is so advanced for it's time.
