At this year's QuakeCon, Doom creator John Carmack surprised everyone by showing a tech demo of the Rage engine running on the iPhone.

The demo runs at 60 frames per second and Carmack himself says on the video that it will even run on a iPhone 2G as well as an iPad. This of course set tongues wagging but nothing concrete has been confirmed at this stage. If anything it's more a proof of concept - simply showing that it can run on Apple's touch-screen devices.

Rage is Carmack's newest first person, action, adventure, shooter, RPG. Yes, that many genres.

The game shares a lot in common with Borderlands and Fallout 3, and so has generated a considerable amount of expectation among the fanboys. News of a potential iPhone version will stokes these fires even more.

More as we get it.
