Carmack Chooses Xbox 360

Say what you will about its gameplay, but Doom 3 was a visually stunning game for those who had the PC gaming rig to play it. We say this to remind you that id Software’s John Carmack and his cohorts at id Software are technical wizards when it comes to presentation. As the next generation of consoles prepare to launch, Carmack is backing the first man out the gate: Microsoft’s Xbox 360. Speaking to PC Gamer, Carmack discusses the challenges with programming for consoles with multiple processors: "they can quote these incredibly high numbers of giga-flops or tera-flops or whatever, but in reality...they’re significantly slower than a modern high-end PC." Carmack has made a living in the PC gaming field, so naturally he is going to be a bit biased, but he still praises the PS3 and Xbox 360 for their graphics systems. That said, Carmack does call the Xbox 360 a "really sweet development system," noting that Microsoft’s recently-launched console "will probably be id’s primary development platform" - so if you are a console gamer who has to get his or her Wolfenstein fix, rest assured it’ll likely make it to the Xbox 360. Let’s hope, though, that they get more accustomed to fixing some of the lag issue found in Quake IV.
