Question on PS3, Wii, 360 devkits...

SchevenScheven Member Posts: 24
What language are these platforms developed under? I heard it was the c language, but I'm not 100% positive. Reason I ask is because I recently finished a semester in Java to prepare me for C++, but now my teacher seems to want to lead me away from that language as if its not the right path for me to take. I am not sure if he has a gripe with Microsoft considering he's a big fan of Borland whom are competitors with them atm, but he has advised me to take Data Structures in Java over C++ for next semester. Would this be a good idea if my goal is to work as a dev for Nintendo or whoever else in less than 2-3 years?

    Any knowledge of programming is helpful for any developer. The language itself is not really important, since if you're good at programming than learning a new language is not that difficult, especially from Java to C/C++.
    You should take as many lessons in Data Structures and algorithms as possible, while honing your C/C++ skills at home, possibly developing windows/linux games.

    Awesome!! Thank you.

    I actually picked out a programming magazine at Borders not too long ago and had a chance to see some c# renditions of Arkanoid. Needless to say, I found the similarities to Java to be ridiciously similar, so now I'm sure you both are correct. Thanks again.

    Normally C/C++ is used. Knowing Asm helps a lot as there could be lots of instances when you have to look at Asm code.

    Asm? Is that short for Assembly? Also, thanks for answering my question.
