    XBox uses a version of the VS compiler probably based on the 2013 compiler
    PS4 is based on LLVM and CLang, there was some additional work dome on the compiler by US R&D and SN, SN provides the linker, VS. Integration and a number of other tools
    Nintendo licensed some embedded IDE solution which is I believe based on an earlier GCC build, no one will touch later GCC builds because they moved to GPL V3, and no ones legal department likes the wording of the viral clause.
