    Homebrew is a term frequently applied to video games or other software produced by consumers to target proprietary hardware platforms not typically user-programmable or that use proprietary storage methods. This might include games developed with official development kits, such as DEVKITPRO. Some more frequently used labels, such as freeware, are often applied as well. A popular type of homebrew is the emulator. such as snes9xgx, fceugx, and vbagx.

    Edit button?
    Devkitpro is not an official sdk, the creators copied some(many?) Parts from the official nintendo sdk but it's still not official (and I know no homebrew created with it).
    Most homebrew on the xbox1 was created with the leaked official sdk.

    Homebrew Channel's for running homebrew. Pretty nifty.

    Have a looksy: Wii Section Overview
    If you follow the directions oh-so-carefully and do your research, you'll be just dandy!

    And if you need any more terms defined: Glossary!
