In XNA, what defines are set to allow me to determine if my code is running on a PC with Windows, Xbox, or Windows Phone?

Right now I am assuming it is these three:

  • XBOX360

Are these correct? Are there any additional symbols?

According to the documentation, the available symbols are:

  • WINDOWS for Windows.
  • XBOX or XBOX360 for the 360 and
  • WINDOWS_PHONE for the phone.
