As far as other consoles, to my experience, the only option seems to be to go through its owner (Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, etc) and that would require an organized company and a big chunk of change. Sorry I can''t help you much there. If you want info on Nintendo''s policy for those, go to http://www.warioworld.com and read up on the stuff there.
You don''t really need to learn the console before its released. That only applies if you want to get a launch or otherwise early game. The official dev kits, I would imagine, anyway, would include documentation on programming for them, but I''ve only used the GBA, and the tuturials on the links I''ve already given.
Anyway, I hope I''ve been helpful, and good luck!
