A guy of my country say to me that he read a official nes programmers interview... and he find it in a faq.. They say: "we program for nintendo 8-bit console using a "language pseudo C Kit".. In this time (very much years ago) it cost about 30000 dollars!!.."..


And i read faqs of fayzullin, etc that says: "nes was programmed in assembler 6502".. what is the real true...??

Or really nintendo dislike that programmers knows technically how work consoles of "nintendo" then they dont teach how program in deep to workers.. they only giving kits in order to making transparent the process of knowing console???"... who knows....

Well they could've programmed it in anything. There were a lot of different developers. I've seen the source code to some Color Dreams stuff, and most of it was pretty strange-looking to me.

30000 for dev software sounds pretty nuts though. For that much, I wonder what it included?

Yes, $30,000 for a highly proprietary development kit including confidential documents, source code examples, and EPROM burning hardware sounds about right.

If someday I wish gain $30'000 at the lottery, I sure would spend them for that.... except that it isn't sold anymore.
This explain why so many programmers prefer going the unlicenced way.
