Retro Video Game Homebrew

Over the past few months, I've been watching various videos about the cool potential of older gen six/seven consoles for homebrew and modding. Most of my inspiration comes from ModernVintageGamer, but I have been following a few others as well (Adam Koralik and Dreamcastic for Sega Dreamcast). Since my last post, I've been collecting older gen six/seven consoles including the original Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2, PS3, and Sega Dreamcast. My end goal is to have a working development environment for each system and try to port some homebrew to each platform. I would like to make a simple 2D game engine that can run on all of these systems. I have a lot of work ahead of me, but it will be a good learning experience to get familiar with each system's architecture. From what I've read, the hardest console of these to develop for will probably be the PS2, but I will have to wait and see. Fortunately, all of these systems are old enough that there are mature homebrew communities and SDKs available.
