id tech boss John Carmack has said PS3 is the best machine to use when developing. Other than a 360, obviously.

Speaking to gamesTM, Carmack said it was much better to build with PS3 and 360 rather than Sega Saturn or PS2, something he said were “quirky, cranky, architectures.”

“The PS3 is still far and away better than anything else that’s ever been made… except maybe the 360,” he told the magazine.

“It’s a great time to be a developer,” he added. “It’s not like working with the Sega Saturn or the PS2, where these are really kind of quirky, cranky, architectures that are not, well, architected, I would say.”

He added: “Because I do favour the 360, it doesn’t mean I have anything all that negative to say about the PS3.”

id’s next game, RAGE, releases this September for PS3, 360 and PC.
