While there are plenty of examples of games, like Modern Warfare 3, ready to jump the console gap, take a slight graphical hit, and make a little extra cash with a release on the Nintendo Wii, id Software has drawn a line in the sand it will not cross - so pick your side.
When asked about the possibility of Rage showing up on the Nintendo Wii after the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions arrive in October, id Software’s co-owner and president Todd Hollenshead let loose with this gem of a comment: “We're not doing a crappy version of Rage on the Wii.”

It's almost like just being asked made him angry. Hollenshead continued, “If you play the PC, the PS3, the 360 version, you get all of it. All the media's the same. We didn't make the crippled version that somebody wishes they had some other platform to play on." Awesome. Everybody who plays Rage will get the full post-apocalyptic experience (all 22 GB of it), but for now, we'll have to defer our dream of a fuzzy Rage with extra wiggles.
