so instead of not making a 360 one there going to chop off half the game
so you know what that means the PC and PS3 will get those wastelands for DLC

Probably, but the 360 will more than likely get those too.  Remember, compression plus a hardrive works wonders.  But yeah, the new area will probably be offered as DLC. And who knows, id may be so disheartened by this that they will make the DLC free, which in the end will make all of this pointless...

So, they are removing the wastelands on all versions because of....... lack of space on the Xbox 360's disc format? They make up for this by.........Releasing DLC on PS3 and PC only?
Kinda confused on this. Wouldn't they release it as DLC for the 360 too, or is it a different issue with the 360 other than space?

well if there is no space for them to put it in to begun with no space for DLC you would  think
plus they didn't say DLC I'm just thinking that will happen

anyways I'm just saying if the didn't make a 360 one the pc and ps3 owners would get a better game

Its the problem that they didn't want to pay for extra discs. A bigger world isn't always a better game, like San Andreas. I'm sure Rage will be a top seller on the 360, and that's what they're really wanting.

I could definitely see the Xbox 360 version getting canceled down the line.

honestly i doubt there ever was more wastelands and i am willing to bet that if the game sucks they will blame it on the 360.

come on id pay up for the extra dvd or simply include the content in the ps3 and pc and not 360.

It seems that we've reached the point where games have begun to surpass the powers of current consoles...or at least the Xbox 360...so much for ten year console life..

Well in a follow up, id said that nothing was cut from the game. They were going to have larger wastelands but decided it'd be best to have a couple smaller ones during development.
