c# but I guess mono is likely to work for whatever that is worth. I suspect the vita isn't doing very well. I've seen some 3DSs but I haven't seen a vita in the wild yet and haven't seen a psp in quite a few years. Now its mostly tablets and some phone gaming.

Game studios are adopting C# into their tools.

Note that in Windows Phone 8, iOS and the consoles targeted by Mono, it is actually compiled to native code.

Having said this, C++ support would be nice to have.

Would be cool if it actually worked - it craps out every time I generate a token and then try to progress with the registration process.

Actually, scratch that - it works in Chrome, not IE... as I was using a different gmail account than the one I have logged in to Chrome, I used IE to log in to gmail - and it simply just didn't work! Copied the link to Chrome, all good now.

I haven't had time for consoles in recent years but I'm definitely buying a PS4. They are doing many things right: hardware direction, cooperating with developers etc.

Finally, I'll get around to playing God of War and I'm hoping for a new Journey game.

PS: if you haven't read this interview on Gamasutra from the lead architect, you definitely should.

I have a PSP and last year bought a Vita but the game selection is a crap and now there are a lot of games of the same or higher quality in Android cheaper or for free.

I dont like touch controls for action games (I tried and some are tolerable but physical are better) and the Vita is great but it´s a lost battle. But if Sony allowed free/adware games ...
