AtGames is no longer including homebrews with the products. We hope to create a portal at some point for homebrew availability. Let's wait until some of the official announcements in the coming months to discuss more specifics of all of this.

The bundled pacman on the portable is a homebrew.

I didn't mean for last year, I meant going forward, 2018 and beyond. Also, a few select ones, like the hacks (Adventure II, etc.), will stay, as I'm sure Pac-Man will.

That is totally awesome sauce! You see the SD card slot on that too? Open source to update firmware as well? They said it licensed Stella as well. I'd really like to know the exact build and

how they went about it but aside from that I think this looks like my next atari purchase.

Wow so it isn't cancelled :o I really want this thing. 

 

Also if it downloads the rom, then I assume that the supercharger won't work? or the stella cart?

They said it licensed Stella as well.

If they use a legally licensed version, then this must be a very old one (v1.1 from 1999!). Since then Stella is GPL and has been massively improved (see ChangeLog). Stella 1.1 wouldn't even play Pitfall 2.
