    50% of these games will turn out to be shite. It happens at every E3, a game is talked-up then on release is actually piss-poor.

    That’s surprising, I don’t recall seeing anything about RAGE during the whole show. I didn’t go looking for it, but I don’t remember it making any headlines either.

    IGN,Gamespot,Gametrailers all had shown a demo and interview for the game.

    RAGE on consoles looks OK…

    Can’t wait for the PC version. I want to see how megatextures really works with graphics cards of the 200 series.

    @15 There is a benefit of getting the PC version besides the obvious, they will also giving the editor with it.

    You know, I somehow managed to make it through the whole of E3 without seeing any of RAGE at all. I surmise there are videos if I go and look, yes?
