Hi, How does the process of porting normally happen to different platforms? Is the work normally outsources to specialists who focus on porting or do they studios who developed the game normally do it themselves? What does porting normally cost? for eg. porting a AAA title from PC to PS2 or Xbox.

Basicly you have to kind of re-write the entire program depending on what language you are porting to, I have done some of this myself and it is either something that will take you a while to do yourself or something that will cost a ton for somebody else to do for you.

As for specific costs to port to different console platforms, I actually have no clue, sorry. I''m guessing its a LOT.
