Yes, we have emulation, but more people need to know how to make Atari consoles. The thing is, one day, all of our systems will seize working. Breaking. We need to preserve the awesomeness of physical hardware. Even though it won't be original hardware, it's not emulation.

I don't know what I am suggesting. I just had the thought that we need a way to play the carts instead of roms. One day the classic hardware won't work.
