    Developing for almost [b]any[/b] console can get very expensive. Because you state that you are a beginner in game development, I recommend starting off on PC at first, as development on PC tends to be more readily available.

    Most consoles use C++ with a modified version of the standard libraries. If you already know C++, I recommend using that.

    There are no special "game development kits"--Besides software like [b]GameMaker[/b], which are quite limited in what they can do (Although provide a way to practice game design and basic game theory)

    For a website, I personally recommend [link=http://www.gamedev.net]GameDev.net[/link], a great game development site featuring members from both hobby/indie, to even professional game developers. I myself is a member.

    Good luck :-)
