Hello.

This might not be the right place to ask this, but I'll give it a shot.

I just got my self a Playstation Console, and want to know how I can program games for this thing.

I know about game programming, I know its hard and all that.

What I need to know is; Where can I find an dev-kit, API's compilers and the things I need.
I think I can program in C/C++, id this correct?

Also, can I make the game-CD's on a regular CD-R? I have noticed that all(?) Playstation game-cd's are black/dark on the data side, is this important? And how do I accomplis this.

I hope you understand what I am asking.

Thanks

Hey, guess what? A playstation is not a computer and a computer is not a playstation. A playstation is set up differently. It typically has the bare minimums for playing all games. The playstation has a graphics engine that makes writing 3-d games easier. For this reason, the Playstation company has most rights for who writes programs for it. When writing an application for a Playstation, special equipment is usually required for testing and writing the programs. Your best bet is to get ahold of Playstation Headquarters and tell them that you are interested in writing programs for the Playstation. It is best to let them think that you know a lot about programming. They are not interested in teaching people.

You can use Metrowerk's CodeWarrior.
It's good overall, as it also has a built-in feature to convert your C/C++ code to Playstation data.
