    Quick Question:

    Win32 and OpenGL go hand and hand right?

    What about when you're programming a game for a game console? Is Win32 not used, while OpenGL is?

    I know it's probably one of the stupidest things you've heard, but I'm still very new to this. Until I get a bit more comfy with this whole deal, I'll probably be asking some stupid questions.

    OpenGL requires that the coder create a window for it to run in, so you must use Win32, or the Mac/Linux/whatever equivalent.
