Making games doesn't require cash, it requires a couple of skilled people who like to do this kind of thing. Making games like Final Fantasy 12 on the PS2, that requires cash, not making fun old-school games.

And that doesn't apply to everyone. There are people who aren't nostalgic, and I'm one of them. When I play a game, the only thing that matters is that I think the game is fun, and some old games are still fun to play.

At least it will be easy to program for. Also, sticking some Intel or risc cpu in the thing will mean it requires emulation, well, we already have that.
