id Software may be splitting Rage across multiple DVDs for the Xbox 360, but studio co-founder John Carmack says that the game's Xbox 360 version will run at a higher framerate compared to the one for PS3.
The Rage feature inEdge magazine's latest issue reveals that the Xbox 360 version will run at 60 FPS -- the same as the PC version -- while the PS3 version will run at 35 to 30 FPS.
"The PS3 lags a little bit behind in terms of getting the performance out of it," Carmack told Edge. "The rasteriser is just a little bit slower - no two ways about that.
"The RSX is slower than what we have in the 360. The CPU is about the same, but the 360 makes it easier to split things off, and that's what a lot of the work has been, splitting it all into jobs on the PS3," he said.
Rage's 2010 launch is still a long way off, but Carmack didn't mention if they'll increase the framerate in the final PS3 copy.
