Carmack Shakes the Earth with RAGE Xbox 360 Install Size

22 gigabytes. Or 22,528 megabytes, which makes it sound even worse. That's how much space you'll need if you want to install RAGE to your Xbox 360. I don't have to tell you that's a lot of HDD space. There are no partial installs, either.
id Software mastermind John Carmack broke the news during his QuakeCon keynote address:
Before PS3 fans start high-fiving over Blu-ray's massive storage capacity, Carmack says that Blu-ray is worse than DVD in "total latency time", and that the PS3 has memory issues:
Carmack also voiced frustrations that consoles are too far behind what PCs are capable of now:
But the PC isn't in the clear either, as Carmack says that it has "been a struggle in many cases to get the game running at 60 frames per second on the PC like it does on a 360".
If this were someone else, I'd comment on how they seem to be bitching about having to do their job. But this is John fucking Carmack. He can bitch all he wants. I'll still buy his games. You can watch his entire keynote below:
