id Software focus on consoles for Rage

Needs must for Carmack and co

Market conditions dictate that id Software focus on the console versions of Rage ahead of the PC release, id's John Carmack reveals.

Speaking to Game Informer magazine (thanks VG247) Carmack says that Rage's controls are designed first with consoles in mind.

"The largest chunk of our markets going to be on consoles. I mean, yes, you can use the mouse for it but it's critical that the controller be the way that we design the game."

The game will feature a plot that sees the player leading the resistance in a post-apocalyptic future, battling the mysterious Authority and mutants across a vast wasteland.

Rage is out next year.
