Check out some of the previously released screens from RAGE.

With about two months to go for RAGE, there should be no doubt that the game should be high on the wishlist of many gamers out there. Other than its awesome and addictive  gameplay, there is also a lot of hype sorroudning its visuals and the slick sixty frames per second that this monster will run at.

John Carmack, the legendary developer at id Software certainly thinks that Rage is arguable the best looking game in the market.

Rage is arguably the best-looking thing out there, but my personal point of pride is that it runs at twice the frame rate of almost all our competitors’. It is a 60-frame-per-second (FPS) game that looks like nothing anyone has seen before.

I had the opportunity with this generation to push the graphics in artistic directions that could have been somewhat more exotic than what we chose here, but it would have been at the expense of being a 30 FPS game. I made the early decision that, if we pick this technical direction, we could have this environment that looks incredibly awesome, but can be done at 60 frames per second.

We can all agree that sixty frames per second along with sharp visuals are the hallmarks of the RAGE.

RAGE releases this October on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

    Nothing liking tooting your own horn on the graphics. Although I happen to agree with him so far…

    More games needs to run @ 60fps. From next gen consoles I expect all games to run 1080p@60fps. I`m a PC gamer and it really is a pain to play a lot of games on a PS3 720p@30, so PC for multiplat, PS3 for exclusives :)

      Pretty much everything will run 1080p@60fps on next generation consoles, leaving little to differentiate them. Except for console exclusives. And who owns the most studios? Yup, Sony. Perhaps because they are better at playing the long-term game, while Microsoft look for the quick buck. I wouldn’t be surprised if Microsoft bow out of the race altogether after the next generation of consoles.
