John Carmack has never had anything negative to say about the 360 (the 360 is id's lead platform because of Carmack) but he has said that the PC is faster then both next gen systems. however this is to be expected since he is, at heart, a PC developer. there may be plenty of console developers that will say the same about the consoles. i think when put on an even playing field (same resolution, AA, and AF levels) the consoles would be faster, with most of the games on the PC the only clear advantage that i can see is higher resolutions and faster framerates.
Gabe Newel may be the developer you guys have in mind to have nasty words about the next gen systems. he was very open to diss the consoles because they are forcing his team to "re-invent the wheel" to work on multi-core architecture.
thats probably where the confusion came from. like i said, i was talking from memory and just got confused This post has been edited by Reaper527: Aug 25 2006, 10:48 PM
