John Carmack, when MW2 was released, gave an interview approving IWnet and p2p over dedis. Hence, for Rage and iD in general, I'll believe it when I see it, though it would be sweet if they went back on their word and supplied dedis.

He just said they were thinking about not having dedis as well, that's all. Didn't approve, no final decision has been announced yet unlike the announcement of map tools.

Ah cool then. I thought he had made a decision back then. Well, if modtools do come indeed there's a good chance dedis will be implemented as well unless they're releasing the tools in order to find more creative modders to hire.

At least some tools for the pc gamers were confirmed. I am not sure whether the producer meant a big variety of mod tools or only a level editor.
Here he says something about it at 4:04 http://g4tv.com/videos/46676/E3-2010-Li ... sion-Demo/

Interesting interview, I'm glad he realized now that if you make the game for the PC and then scale down appropriately you'll have the best game possible.

Also some new footage http://www.gametrailers.com/video/e3-2011-rage/715397

This is what John Carmack said:
Quote:
It’s not cast in stone yet, but at this point no, we don’t think we will have dedicated servers.

The interviewer also wrote that Carmack sees dedicated servers as "something of a remnant of the early days of PC gaming." (Note that's not a direct quote of Carmack.) Discussing IWnet, however, he also said this:
Quote:
'The great thing is we won’t have to be a pioneer on that,' he says. 'We’ll see how it works out for everyone else.'

Rage is 6 player max of course it's not going to have dedis. I wouldn't want to rent a server just so 6 people could play on it that's insane.

I didn't know that, but I agree with your logic.

Either way, I'm just not excited about Rage.

The whole keynote is absolutely worth watching (even though I understood less than 30% of it) but especially from 1h:20min mark till the end. It's about editor for Rage and the mod community.
