I'm confused- is it up to the collector elite to determine which games are allowed to be published as a home brew? Part of the free market is to allow anyone to produce a product. Whether an individual likes a game or not doesn't matter- the development, coding, manufacturing, advertisement, and shipping is the sole responsibility and financial risk of the developer and producer. I would rather have poorly developed games available for anyone to purchase rather than a very limited run of a game that is only for sale by invite only to select few.
If games by certain coders or developers are known to be flops then the demand will be weak, resulting in a drop in price as the producer seeks to minimize their losses.
Bottom line we as hobbists are not the ones to decide on which game is to be produced. I, for one, applaud the man for creating a new game on a new console for him. Well done, sir. We should be encouraging the programmer.
