This is purely a marketing related movement, I have to assume.
Rage Release Pushed Back To October 4
Pushing back to October 4 is a disaster in waiting for Rage. Same Day as Twisted MEtal and Darkness 2, a week before Dark Souls, two weeks before Batman, and three weeks before BF3. Then November brings the beasts that will be Skyrim and MW3. Who thought that it was a good idea to move to October should be fired. If they are worried about Gears 3 then then push the launch up to August 30th or August 23rd.
John Carmack in an interview at E3 said Rage is done and they are polishing the game. If thats the case it could and should be released the end of August, thats plenty of polish time. They should look at October and reconsider that timeframe, because it could flop in sales if they stick to October. Just my thoughts.
I want to be excited about the new Twisted Metal but I can't. Black was the pinnacle of the series and this game is completely ditching that style of narrative. It also doesn't help that we can play games like Territories and CTF in every other game, why bring it to Twisted Metal? I also don't need Sweetimus Prime in my game (especially if everyone else can fly around too).
@DevilishSix: I think you're process of thinking is excellent. Of course, we don't know their true business designs, but I agree and feel that moving the game closer and closer to all these other release dates is an atrocious idea.

Thanks for the comments, I agree the transformers in Twisted Metal doesn't work for me. Anyways since Rage has decided to move from September 6 I may just get Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine instead.
I really looking forward to this game, but if Camerack says he needs a bit more time, then you give him more time.
Just what I am thinking. I am really looking forward to playing this but I want it right and if that means more time to get it finished then that is cool with me.
This fucking blows! So many people are like OH I'VE WAITED THIS LONG WHATS AN EXTRA 3 WEEKS. I have to disagree. With the 5+ years this has been in development I DOUBT that 3 weeks is going to be used for anything to better the game. Just release the damn thing already. My preorder has been sitting around for over 2 years. Fuck fuck fuck fuck
Wow dudes you really think that a car combat game (no longer relevant) , a sequel to a somewhat mediocre FPS (Darkness 2) would endenger the game from the FPS kings????? Also another Tom Clancy game ?pffffttt , the only game that will hamper Rage release will be Dark Souls , but I will get both of them.
As a side note GoW3 no longer interest me , MW3 can drop dead for all I care and I doubt that Battlefield 3 will be anything other than a COD clone (except the multiplayer part , but I rarely play on line) so the release dates is perfect , then I can round up the year with Skyrim ... perfect
