    Almost all console systems nowadays use C/C++ to code their games. Back when the SNES was popular most games were coded in assembly but since hardware is so much faster now and games do not need to fit into a mere 4 megs of ROM high-level-languages are being used.



    Usually you can find specs on programming console systems at emulator sites. However since most console specs are unknown or just partially known there are usually no compilers for such systems. You'll need to use assembly to code games or even basic programs.



    Take for example the N64. So far the only "game" coded by people other than Nintendo is a pong game.
