    Wow! Great screen shots! I really hope Rage will be another Doom3 or Crysis style release where the game is barely playable with current hardware; this kind of pressure to upgrade is needed to force PC Gaming ahead of the console curve!

    I'm going to assume you're not bein' sarcastic and respond to this as a straight comment: Carmack has already said the game is bein' designed around Consoles (he even went so far as to say the preferable control scheme will be a gamepad, not mouse/keyboard)... He's also stated id has the game runnin' at 60FPS on the 360 and on the PC, presumably using current PC tech... so... as far as Rage bein' a PC-centric killer app level title that will push boundaries, expand frontiers, and forge a bold new era in computer gaming...

    Not bloody likely...

    Does look pretty though... The skies are spectacular... but...is it me, or does the overall geography seem a little... LOW-POLY?
