SharpDX is an open-source project delivering the full DirectX API under the .Net platform, allowing the development of high performance game, 2D and 3D graphics rendering as well as realtime sound application.
SharpDX is built with a custom tool called SharpGen able to generate automatically a .NET API directly from the DirectX SDKheaders, thus allowing a tight mapping with the native API while taking advantages of the great strength of the .Net ecosystem.
SharpDX is fully supporting all Windows platforms including latest Windows 8 Metro and Windows Phone 8. Easily develop multimedia applications for desktop, WinRT and Windows Phone with the same API!

Yesterday was announced that Xbox One will allow indie developers to easily publish games on Xbox One.
We have still very few details about the indie developer program on this platform, but in order to use SharpDX and have full DirectX access on this platform, we need to ensure that .NET will be accessible on this platform.
If you would like to be able to develop cross-platform games with .NET on all Windows Platforms including the Xbox One, please vote for this user voice feature request:Allow .NET games on Xbox One
This will allow SharpDX to provide a compelling game development alternative on Xbox One!
