Hi,
can anyone tell me if there's XBOX OpenGL support for XBOX? and if it's so,which OpenGL version is supported?

Not that I'm aware of, at least for official titles.

Microsoft must approve all system libraries you link to, and even their versions and patches. You cannot publish a title for non chipped systems without their approval.

Basically when you submit a title on XBOX you link to official XDK libs (D3D8 for graphics) which are tightly controlled for QA reasons.

This isn't the definitive answer, but I don't think OpenGL is officially available.

For underground XBOX development & Linux etc the story is different, but that's just mucking aorund, you can't publish that stuff unless it's for chipped or overflow exploited systems.
