Homebrew & Emus - Will Anyone Bother?
With all the hoo-hah and difficulties that our asian friends are having getting these Jailbreak devices out of Hong Kong, there obviously isn't going to be many of them knocking about.
My greatest fear is that the wonderful chaps who port and code all them fantastic homebrew proggies and emulators are not going to think it's worth the bother working to a tiny audience.
When I first heard of the Jailbreaks I nearly wet my pants with excitement over the thought of all them fantastic emulators, etc.
I remember when the Dreamcast scene exploded in the early 2Ks and it was surely a magical time for homebrew, dozens and dozens of emulators, media players, and so on.
I'm not too arsed about piracy and consider the ability to make copies of games to be a 'nice side effect'. But I must say that I am absolutely GAGGING for a full speed - hi rez MAME port to PS3.
Like I said though, the folks that actually port and program the stuff will maybe see this as a niche market and maybe not worth the bother due to the limited audience? :cry:
