Xbox 360 starting to show its (R)AGE

200°
333w ago - The differences in PS3 and Xbox 360 hardware capabilities have been debated since the dawn of next-gen, but has the Xbox 360 finally revealed its Achilles heel?

John Carmack of id Software states that the PS3 version of the upcoming cross-platform first person shooter RAGE will look better than the Xbox 360 version of the game. Carmack was quick to add that the reason for the inferior look of the Xbox 360 is a storage problem and not associated with a lack of hardware power.

Despite the obvious oversight of the Xbox 360's DVD drive being a hardware component that is lacking in power (when compared to the Blu-ray drive of the PS3), RAGE's humbling of the consoles hardware abilities raises some doubts for Microsoft's next-gen console. Although at least a year from release, RAGE is not alone in its need for more than a single disc on the Xbox 360. Games such as Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey have already utilised multiple DVD's, with the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII following suit.

Up until now, there has been no trade-off between multiple discs and the graphical power of the Xbox 360, but RAGE demands attention in this area. Carmack claims that id Software will have to use a "different type of compression" for the Xbox 360 version of the game in order to fit it onto two discs....

334w ago - A new consumer survey from ABI Research has revealed that while there is a widespread reluctance for consumers to commit to a Blu-ray player in the near future.

ABI Research say that there is a bright spot, however, with the PS3 "rapidly becoming a favorite for hard-core gamers and so the installed base of sockets for Blu-ray discs continues to climb."

To quote: "While you might think gamers purchase fewer movie discs that others, we didn't see any significant evidence of that in our results," said an ABI rep.

"PS3 console shipments will go a long way to help bring down manufacturing costs and drive down Blu-ray player prices."
