RAGE PS3 Vs Xbox

This topic is locked from further discussion.

The 360 version matches the PC's 60 FPS while the PS3's framerate runs at just 20-30 FPS. "The PS3 does lag a little bit behind in terms of getting the performance out of it," Carmack acknowledges.

"The rasteriser is just a little bit slower - no two ways about that. The RSX is slower than what we have in the 360. Processing wise, the main CPU is about the same, but the 360 makes it easier to split things off, and that's where a lot of the work has been, splitting it all into jobs on the PS3."

He is, however, confident that the PS3 version will match that of all other supported platforms: "Everything is designed as a 60 hertz game. We expect this to be 60 hertz on every supported platform."

"The work remaining is getting it locked so there's never a dropped frame or a tear, but we're confident that we're going to get that."

Rage seems like something we will have to wait closer to launch to know what is going to happen.

Yes ofc the pc will get better .. but this is between PS3 'N' Xbox not the pc ?!

60fps vs 20-30fps... thats like a MASSIVE difference. I know the 360 can produce better graphics but that sounds like just like BS. You see that sort of difference between different gen Graphics cards.

If it was "the ps3 has no AA and is behind about 10fps max, then I would believe it asside from that just comes across they cannot programm for the ps3 well ;)

True, but this was a statement how well they perform between the consoles and not the pc version..

But i can see the point, but again the topic says " PS3 Vs xbox "

Its all over the net Google "Rage Runs faster"

many many sites with this info

Here's the copy/paste.

'The Xbox 360 and PC versions of id's Rage sport higher framerates than the PlayStation 3 version, the latest issue of Edge magazine reveals.

In a ten-page reveal in its latest issue, Edge writes that the Xbox 360 version of Rage - which uses id's new Tech 5 engine - matches the 60fps framerate of the PC version, while PS3 runs at just "20-30fps".

Update: id Software has responded in the aftermath of the Edge article, saying: "The Edge Magazine article has caused quite a ruckus. We are committed to ensuring that gamers on all platforms have a great RAGE experience," on its official Twitter feed. Update Ends.

It's not mentioned whether the PS3 framerate will be addressed by the game's eventual release.

"The PS3 lags a little bit behind in terms of getting the performance out of it," John Carmack told Edge. "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 saidThe PS3 edition was thought to be the most technically capable of the console pair, thanks to id being able to squeeze the gigantic shooter onto a single-player Blu-ray disc, compared to Xbox 360's four DVDs.

Update: Edge has posted further details from its article saying that Carmack is confident that the PS3 version will match that of all other supported platforms: "Everything is designed as a 60 hertz game. We expect this to be 60 hertz on every supported platform.

"The work remaining is getting it locked so there's never a dropped frame or a tear, but we're confident that we're going to get that."

Am i reading correctly? 4 disk for 360? o_O thats one huge game!

#13 Posted by ragie12345 (10 posts) -

not four disk.. one maybe 2 "see the new interview".. but still i rather swap disk which takes 10 sec to do, than installing the game and wait 20-30 min
- i can swap the disk many many times even before the ps3 has finished the install.. and yes got both systems :)

#14 Posted by archvile_78 (8382 posts) -

Thats the best result i could find but either way, seems like the PS3 issues will be fixed by the time that game is out. If you find a more recent article post it here. I'm too tired to do further search. .-.

#15 Posted by ragie12345 (10 posts) -

Thanks for the clicky info btw ;)

Yea. 4 disk is many disk for a game.. but i think it will stay on 1 one max 2 or atleast i hope :P

#16 Posted by archvile_78 (8382 posts) -

To be honest, more disk for me = more stuff to discover and explore so it doesn't matter to me. :P

#17 Posted by ragie12345 (10 posts) -

Damn, could'nt have said that better!

But still i think the game will be amazing even on 1 disk or 4 disk doesnt matter 8)

Correct me if im mistaken but wasnt one of the reasons microsoft made the xbox like they did was to make it easier to produce games for than the ps2. I know this is 360 vs ps3 but the same still applies. Sony pack a lot of punch into their systems but because of the way the codes written developers find it harder to master the Sony consoles full potential whereas its easier for the xbox's and also why games developed by sony tend to look a little nicer than those by third parties.

Just a thought - please correct me if my memory is wrong.

Oi! Don't ruin this moment of joy. Can't you see, by excluding PC they are conceding to the power of the Full Tower!!! This game is not worth getting on console at all!

PC fans like to say they don't come into console threads except to "correct" us (usually when some deluded idiot says "x better than Crysis"). Well, guess what: no one mentioned PC in this thread until you guys showed up.

Chill people, i am not like those pc fanatics "pc and crysis are gods" or "pc rules and consolers suck" NO, am not like that..crysis sucked for me and the pc gaming is at the worst state it has ever been... iv been gaming since '92 and the pc never was in such a bad state. So am not like those "annoying pc users" but i think that the fact that pc will have amazingly superior graphics on this specifc game (not just better, amazingly better) so i guess it worths to be mentioned just once.
