Tuesday id Software released a new batch of screenshots from the upcoming FPS for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Rage. Although the game was originally announced back in 2007, Rage may or may not hit retail stores by the end of the year--it's believed that it may not see a release until next year. Until then, we'll have to endure the random teases id dishes out.
Destructoid reports that id Software whipped out the latest build during last month's Bethesda Softworks press event. Apparently this was the first time anyone had seen a console version, as previous demos typically used the PC version of Rage (can't say "port," as that's not the case).
But no matter the platform, id's Tim Willits promises that id Tech 5 will offer true cross-platform technology. When asked about the PlayStation 3 version, Willits said that the PS3 demo was definitely an option for the event, but he opted for the Xbox 360 instead. "Our program director actually said 'Do you want to take the PS3? I think it's actually running better,'" he said.

This I dont like.
But then I would choose the XBOX demo over the PS3 demo due to loading times...
I hadn't heard they were porting this to consoles. There goes another PC excluscive.
There definately is something that reminds me of fallout 3, maybe the heavy shadows on the guns, and the greyness and high contrast.
id software always make great choices. They're also doing very well with Quake Live (beta) which also is cross-platform on personal computers (as in also works on Mac and Linux).
Can't WAIT to play it! Wait, isn't ID using EA nowadays?
id may still make good game engines but seriously, couldn't they come up with a new colour scheme? Compare the id games (doom/quake/rage) to things like Unreal/Tournament or Half-Life. The id games show a *serious* lack of imagination.
