I saw that DGSDK can’t create games for consoles (PS2, XBOX, GC), will that ever be possible?

Is DGSDK capable to use other app that DB (DBPro) can use?

When will the commercial version come out and how much will it cost?

What are the benefits of DGSDK from DBPro? (only the speed or something more?)

Most definately no.

It can use almost all of the ones that DBPro can use (if you mean by things like Cartography Shop, Geoscape etc).

DGSDK IS DBpro literally.

The power, flexibility and features of C++. Plus C may be a first language for some.

Get 15 new commands, all the date / time commands left out of DBPro for free!

No. DGSDK uses Directx and consoles use...something else.

It has support for the same files and support for the plugins is being added. So yes.

You get to use C,C++ and thier compilers and IDEs. That means You get a better languaje, a better IDE and a better compiler.

EDIT: Darn DavidT beat me

X-Box uses DirectX

Anyway, we would have to pay huge license fees to Microsoft in order to be able to publish anything for X-Box, so I much rather prefer to just make PC games
