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.

Game Boy Advance homebrew developers have several ways to use GBA flash cartridges in this regard.

Along with the Dreamcast, Game Boy Advance, and Play Station Portable, the most frequently used platforms for homebrew development are older generations of consoles, among them the Atari 2600 and Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).

Efforts have been made to use actual console hardware for many older systems, though.

Atari 2600 homebrew developers use various methods, for example, burning an EEPROM to plug into a custom cartridge board or audio transfer via the Starpath Supercharger.

The relative simplicity of older systems enables an individual or small group to develop acceptable games in a reasonable time frame.
