    That can only if you compile it with a playstation OS C++ compiler. A windows or linux compiler is useless in this case, unless the playstation OS is linux.

    Nope. Your computer uses a different processor, and hence instruction set, then the Playstation.

    You will need a compiler that can produce Playstation code, and the Playstation PSDK. Some companies used CodeWarrior for this.

    Please note, however, that you will need to get a license from Sony to release software for their console. They useually only grant licenses to big name development companies though, and the cost of all of this easily exceeds $10,000.

    If you want to develop on console, the easiest ones to develop for are the GBA, NES, SNES, or even XBox. There is a free GCC port for GBA, NES and SNES can be developed through assembler, and XBox uses DirectX built from Windows.
