An Altera Hardcopy version of the N68070/SuperAGA isn't likely to cost $300,000 USD for one chip, that seems to be the most likely route they'll take with the design.
Of course an Altera Hardcopy is just an FPGA for which the ability to flash in new functionality has been permanently removed, so while it IS cheaper than a nomal FPGA, it doesn't perform much better (or any better at all)
