    It seems that one of the best looking games to come out yet (that hasn't come out yet) will not be looking so good on the 360 due to compression/storage issues. PC, MAC, and PS3 versions will all be available on blu-ray (as well as a dvd option for pc and mac).
    But royalties to put Rage on 3 seperate discs on the 360 would be much too high. So they must compress the game.

    This is like when they consoles made the switch from cd to dvd. Now to DVD-DL to blu-ray. [​IMG]

    edit: oh and here is a trailer for the game

    Okay. I have to say it. Normally the game/news section is generally for DS/Wii/Homebrew related stuff except for few exceptions like something really "wtf" causing or just something big in general. You've pointed out the 360's "compression" more times then needed. All this is going to do is start a war, even if that's not what you intended. Which I know you probably are. So I'm closing this ahead of time.
