Console Graphics?

Recommended Posts

Certainly this may seem like a ridiculous question, but I happen to be wondering what graphics library some consoles [PSX, N64, etc] use, if anyone really knows? I would think they would use some custom graphics system, but does anyone know what they''re based on [like OpenGL or what?] @_@ Sorry if this question seems too abstract or totally crazy. Any answer is appreciated.

None of the above, for the most part. Seeing as they''re hardware designed for gaming specfically, they tend to work different from PCs. If I remember correctly the X-Box uses at least some variation on DirectX... I don''t have one myself, but I''m pretty sure I remember hearing it even has a sticker somewhere that says "Powered by DirectX" or something like that.

For the most part though, the consoles use their own methods specific to themselves. Anyone, feel free to correct me if I''m mistaken... All I''ve worked with personally is homebrew GBA stuff.
