|The XGameStation HYDRA Game Development Kit is available from XGameStation.com for $249.95, which seems like a fair price for what's included. This is the newest and most advanced edutainment game development kit that XGameStation offers. Whereas the XGameStation Micro is geared toward learning the hardware mechanics of a basic videogame console, the HYDRA is aimed toward software programming enthusiasts wishing to take it a step further and develop on a simplified cell processor, similar to the concept of the Sony "Cell processor" used in the Playstation 3.
The HYDRA Game Development Kit is a complete edutainment platform to learn multiprocessing game development, graphics and media applications on the HYDRA Game Console. Based on the new Parallax multiprocessing Propeller Chip. For beginner to intermediate coders, you need only basic programming experience in any BASIC or C-like language to get started with the kit. The kit includes everything you need to get started (TV and PC not included).
