Here is some possible good news for Android Gamers.  id Software has released Rage, a First Person Shooter that has won 3 Game Critics awards at E3. Rage is currently available for the PC, Xbox360 and PS3.

At the recent QuakeCon conference id Software demonstrated Rage on the iPhone 4 during the keynote, It was also mentioned that it will run on the 3GS but looks best on the iPad. John Caramack announced that they are considering a port to Android but the final determination has not been made at this time. With the demonstration (see the video below) showing that the game runs at a steady 60FPS on the iPhone this shows that mobile devices including those running Android can certainly run this game and make it run well.

Its also worth noting that last year id Software served Google with a DMCA notice to remove the Android ports of Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein from the Android Market.
