Re: id Software's RAGE to use Steamworks and Steam Cloud
Well games are developed quicker than ever now days. Game houses have better tools, better software, better porting software, easier graphics API, less GPUs, lower costs to develop on the PC.
idsoftware spent loads of time getting their engine done for the consoles and getting 60fps for the Xbox360. This is all in the hope that they will sell millions. They wouldn't need to sell that much on the PC and such companies have been around doing that for the last 20 years.
