id Fans Flames Following John Carmack's Comments About Rage's Poor PS3 Performance

Developer id Software has quickly jumped on the recent console wars flame up that company head John Carmack sparked after telling Edge that the PlayStation 3 version of id’s upcoming post-apocalyptic title Rage currently runs at “just 20-30 [frames-per-second]” whereas the Xbox 360 version runs at 60 FPS.

In response, id said, via its Rage-dedicated Twitter account, “We are committed to ensuring that gamers on all platforms have a great Rage experience.”

An official response from id on this whole mess was obviously expected, however, it’s a bit surprising that the company had to even make it in the first place, considering in the same offending interview with Edge, Carmack said, “We expect [Rage] to be 60 hertz on every supported platform. The work remaining is getting it locked so there's never a dropped frame or a tear, but we're confident that we're going to get that."

Did the PS3 users who raised all this “ruckus” reach for the pitchforks and torches a bit hastily on this one?
