im still rather new so this might not be totally accurate.

i dont really kno about 3d engines, all i know is that generally assembly is used for the bits that need to be executed really fast, i don''t kno if this applies to your engine.

console games are developing using a special Software Development Kit for that particular console, which will emulate performance or something, and in many respects is similar to programming for the pc

What about me? What about Raven?

You don''t have to know or use assembly.

Generally, the same languages are used (C, C++, Java). See the main page for a news item on VectorC{PS2:VU}. The difference lies in the compilers, exuction environments and executable formats. Architectural differences may also require you to think and write code differently.
