We hoped yesterday that Apple fan John Carmack would have a little treat for iPhone and iPad gamers at his QuakeCon presentation on Thursday, but we didn’t dream it would be anything as good as what actually happened! According to Kotaku, not only did Carmack run an amazing tech demo of id’s forthcoming console game Rage on an iPhone 4, at 60fps no less, he also announced that the long, long, long awaited game will actually be hitting the iPhone and iPad BEFORE it hits the consoles, or at least a scaled down version of the larger console game will. Apparently the Rage app will be little taster and promo for the full console game. And yes, the released version will run at 60fps, it’s not something they hooked up just for the tech demo, although as running a game at 60fps eats up the battery like crazy, you’ll also be able to run it at 30fps. According to Kotaku, Carmack also said that the iPhone 4 Rage demo could "kill anything done on the Xbox or PlayStation 2."

No word as yet on a release date, but we’ll keep you posted.
