Carmack: Quake Live Plays To PC Strengths


Carmack was talking up Quake Live today over on Gamasutra. "A lot of this project was about doing something that the PC was going to be better at than the consoles," he told the big G. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Carmack's comments is that he wants to see some of the web functionality from things like social networking sites to find their way into the browser-based game platform. ""For years, I've often thought about the fact that a lot of people spend vastly more time on websites and forums about the games that they're playing than they actually spend playing the games themselves. We hope to have some aspect of that here."

Quake Live went into open beta last night.
