Doom 3: BFG won't find a home on the Wii U and other sub-platforms is not because the system isn't powerful enough or the wannabe-iPad controller is inhibitory or anything like that.

John Carmack let loose some pretty big news at this year's QuakeCon, including a heartfelt speech to the PC gaming community about letting them down with the piss poor port of RAGE, and how the game failed so badly to meet the expectations of the audience that made id Software famous.

3D Headset Gets A Test Run In Doom 3 BFG Edition
Ross Miller from The Verge managed to get their hands (or head, rather) wrapped up in John Carmack's new head-mounted 3D peripheral.
