id Software's Rage running on a iPhone 4 at 60 FPS

During QuakeCon 2010, ID Software's co-founder John Carmack demoed Rage on a iPhone 4 running at a very impressive 60 frames-per-second. And what's maybe even more impressive is the fact that Carmack believes this game will "kill anything done on the Xbox or PlayStation 2." We first heard of Rage coming to the iPhone and iPad back in March so it's good to see that this is finally going to happen and sooner rather than later.

Any first-person-shooter fan out there should definitely be chomping at the bit to see this one land into the App Store "later this year". And if one title is not enough, perhaps the planned sequel that will be available just in time for the 2011 launch of the PC version will make you happy.

Check out the most impressive video after the break!

How can something with no controller kill something that has a controller? Amung other things...
More power to them though. I hope this game is amazing as he says it will be.

It would be nice if Apple would design controller that would plug into the iPhone. Bot sure if it's possible. But would be nice.
I love FPS but not on the iPhone. That digital controller nub blows.

Dunno about you lot but I'm not bad at iPhone shooters with every type of control scheme, be it Nova's traditional layout, or ID's Doom custom version to NGMocos Gyro based system (Albeit the latter takes more time to get accustomed to it). So for me personally, I can't frikkin WAIT for this :-D

I have an iSkin hardshell case for my iPhone 4. I don't see why they couldn't make the case a little wider and add a thumbstick and an ABC button on it. Either connect through blutooth or utilize the dock port... Case wouldn't even have to be much bigger, maybe 3/4 of an inch wider.

I've been wishing for 60 fps on the iphone 4's video. Was expecting it on 4.0.2 as perhaps a "surprise" but nope. I hope Apple don't wait long enough for another competing product to do it first.

@Fastlane Here, here! This is ridiculous! Why only 60 frames per second? Where's the Mode 7? F***ing retards!
