RAGE: “Kudos to Sony for letting us” do 8GB install on PS3- id Software

RAGE, id’s upcoming First Person Shooter, looks awesome, and seems to be marking id’s reentry into the FPS genre as one of the main players. In an interview with Eurogamer- Digital Foundry, id’s Tim Willits talked about RAGE, the PS3 installing, and many other things.

When asked about the 8 GB install on the PS3 and why RAGE decided to go with it, Willits said, praising Sony for their developer friendly views: “Sony was great. Kudos to Sony for letting us do that. They don’t allow every game to do that. So definitely, hats off.”

“What we were able to do is install all the textures to the highest level,” he continued. “What is nice about the PS3 platform is that it’s just one platform. Everyone has one Blu-ray drive, one hard drive, it’s all the same. Some of the other systems you have… should I install it on my 360? Should I not install it? So yes, it’s very nice.”

Well, it may take a lot of time to install the game, definitely, but it also means we’ll get to see some really crisp textures. Honestly, I’d be more than willing to wait for some time to see some really good visuals.

And this might just give the PS3 version an edge over the Xbox 360 one, if being on one disc over three doesn’t.

You can read a lot more about the game in the interview through the link above.

RAGE releases early October, in a few days, for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

  • Give it an edge as an out of the box experience in loading performance sure. A total edge over the 360 version NO! Having to wait for 20+ minutes untill an installation finishes is wasted time and people would rather swap a disc for 10 seconds.
    Plus, while it has been seen countless times that load times with a mandatory install on the PS3 are marginally faster than loading off the disc on the 360, once you do the optional install on the Xbox 360 the performance is once again in favor of the 360 version.
    Going by John Carmack’s keynote I don’t see the PS3 version being the better one on consoles. It’ll be the 360 version and the PC version will take the crown anyway.

    • Hardcoded? Your name is Walter. What you need to do is get a job and get out of my basement. You’re 35 with no woman, job, or life. I can’t take care of you forever.

    • For optimal performance on the 360 though, it was recomended (not said particularly in this article) that you install each Disc of the 360 version when you come to play them. For example, you will install disc 1, then play whatever content disc 1 contains, then uninstall disc 1 to install disc 2 and repeat the process. So for the PS3, your getting all of that in 1 shot, 1 install before you play anything to play the whole game straight through on the 1 disc, rather than swapping discs and installing for every disc, having to wait in between playing the campaign.

    • You don’t know jack squat about anything, but you’re just another pathetic fanboy so I honestly don’t give a rats ass about your comment.

      All I can say is, “In the past John Carmack stated that the PS3 version of Rage will have superior textures over the Xbox 360 version due to disc space differences. In addition, Willits recently revealed that the team has optimized Rage to work on the PS3 so all eight of the CELL cores or SPEs are utilized to prevent nasty texture pop-ups.”

      Die fanboy, die?

    • Only a fool would complain over a big install. It’s a one time install. It’s not like you have to wait 20 minutes for the game to load every time you play it.

    • Don’t let the pauperstation fanboys get you down hardcoded. They are in plain denial with their shabby machine rammed so far up their bums. Nobody in their right minds prefers a large install over a few seconds of swapping. Those are the real fools. A console isn’t meant to have installations, that’s why it’s a console and not a PC. But yeah the PS3’s hardware is sh*t and that’s why it has mandatory installations for most of it’s games. The PS3 version will once again prove to be inferior, no doubt about it. The Pauperfanboys are just hoping to have an edge once in a while, because they hardly ever get one.

    • Dear Roidrage, 2006 called and it wants you back.

      Where the hell have you been these last few years? The PS3 dominates in all areas.

      KiddyStation 360 has no games, enjoy your kinect!

  • The 360 is straight garbage, people who like the xbox is just plain in denile plain and simple. Hey retard, the install handles crispiness and better HD Quality and audio then the 360 with the “marginally” different load times REALLY MEANS the PS3 is a beast. You yourself said this when u say that load are almost the same but our experience will be better ha! And my 640gb PS3 can handle this install sleeping!

    Enjoy Your Garbox 3fixMe

    • The PS3 is a straight piece of sh*t. People who like the PS3 ARE just plain in denial, plain and simple. Hey retards, the install doesn’t handle crispiness and better HD Quality and audio thAn the 360 with the “marginally” different load times. It REALLY MEANS the PS3 is a piece of sh*t. Enjoy Your Ph0n3y Piece of Shit 3. The PS3 will have another inferior version. PC>>>360>PS3.

      /fixed it for you.

      I now know why people call it pauperstation. The people that support it can’t even spell.

  • i prefere the one time install over 3 disc swapping each playthrough any day of the week. im sure that hard guy will have the biggest smile on his face each time he has to get up and swap disc.

    • Yeah only if he’s a pauperstation fanboy, because they are the largest population of obese people.

    • You do know that the 360 only sells well in America, right?

      Do you by any chance know what the rest of the world sees you Americans as? I’ll give you a hint, since you are American (stupid): fat obese fuckers.

      That’s right, isn’t it. You are surely a microshaft fanboy, and you are fat, stupid and American…. right?

      Yeah… we all know you are.

  • This game will determine if I will give up on this generation: Nintendo (though not really this gen) failed me with Twilight Princess; Crysis 2 dissapointed me to death (hyped to excellence); developers favoring XBOX 360 and giving leftovers to PS3) Sounds like they actually put some thought into PS3…just hope I don’t regret my RAGE pre order. I will be playing RAGE and SAINTS THE THIRD for LOOONG time.


    • 8GB’s is nothing. Is your hard drive too small? You do know you can buy a new drive that’s a lot bigger don’t you? I have a 500GB drive in my PS3 so 8GB will be nothing.

  • Rage is gonna rock, I have full faith in id!

  • Why do people complain about installing games before they play them, PC has always made you install the game into the computer and in the end no one really cares about installing because it’s only a couple of minutes wasted.
    In those couple of minutes you could’ve done something productive.
