Wanting to get into PS3/VITA programming!
Wanting to get into PS3/VITA programming! –
Hey guys. I can program in Java with GUI. I use eclipse, for my projects. What languages are supported on the homebrew PS3/PSVita Scene? Are there any IDEs similar to eclipse, to help with the code writing process? I have heard of PSLight, but haven't read anything about it.
Would really appreciate a response and I am very eager to run homebrew on my PS consoles and contribute to the scene!
all real programming is done in C++

I am aware that the C family is integrated a lot more firmly into operating systems and Java is predominately for web/mobile based application, but I've looked at C# code and the step over really doesn't seem too large. I am willing to give this a real go.
I started learning Java last September and I have loved it and have already made quite complex games which require pretty complex algorithms (Othello, Minewseeper, Tetris to name a few). I am not scared away easily from a problem :P.
If any of you have an advice on how to get started that would be great, since next academic year I can make a full featured game in any language I want/ on any platform and I'd really like it to be the PS3 (and I can actually have an excuse to do it, other than personal interest XD) .
Going from Java to C++ shouldn't be a huge leap. I'm less familiar with Java, but I believe there's some pretty significant difference when it comes to memory management. You will have to learn to use pointer variables in C++. I also think interfaces and abstract classes work differently or don't exist in Java.
