Screenshot of the Atari 2600 homebrew Duck Attack! All major sixth generation consoles enjoy some use by homebrew developers, but less so than earlier generations. This is mostly the case because software production requires more resources, accurate emulators do not exist yet, and the consoles themselves often employ rather complex systems to prevent the execution of unauthorized code. Homebrew games for older systems are typically developed using emulators for convenience since testing them requires no extra hardware on the part of the programmer. Development for newer systems typically involves actual hardware given the lack of accurate emulators.
