Plus, while testing solely on emulator you miss a large number of issues which appear only on the real hardware.

This is not specific to the Amiga btw. The games industry mostly develops console games on development kits with additional memory, storage medium and extra debugging capabilities but we always do tests on customer hardware because there are always differences between a development environment and the hardware that people have in their homes.

Unless you test on the real thing you are never sure your code actually works.
