Carmack – “360′s the better platform” for modern games

Stoke that fire, John. Give it a blow. Speaking to Eurogamer at QuakeCon today, id’s John Carmack said he felt 360′s the platform to go for if you want to make games for the modern man. Or woman.

“You could design a game where the PS3 would be the superior platform, but you’d have to go out of your way to do it,” he said. “If you’re doing a game like people just want to do games now, the 360′s the better platform.”

    It’s a great week to be emotionally attached to a piece of plastic with some circuit boards inside.

    1) It’s about making games, not playing games.
    2) It’s about the similarity of the 360 architecture to the PC architecture, so it’s geared towards PC game devs after all.
