digitalmars.D - [OT] Sony is making their Playstation C# tools open source

Hi,

since game development discussions tend to come up here, Sony is 
making their C# tools open source, used in games by Naughty Dog, 
Guerrilla Games and others.

One good example how GC based languages do not hinder game 
development and are gaining place alongside C++ as part of the 
development process.

Yeah, but it's for tools, not the game itself. I don't think anyone ever said c# wasn't good for tools.

Sure, I agree with you. But this is a recursive trend. Back when Assembly was king, BASIC, C and Pascal were used for tooling, with Assembly having the king's role. Then the same cycle repeated itself when C was the king and C++ was slowly being used for tooling. So now GC enabled languages are starting to replace C++/MFC/Qt in the tooling area. Eventually a new replacement cycle will happen, even if we are still away from it. -- Paulo

Don't use gcc anymore is the best thing they could do.
