A game console based on emulators and ports can be really interesting even
before adding non-free software.
For starters, you may be able to find public domain or even free software ROM
for most of the emulators, and they could even be shipped with the device
operating system as part of the free software included! Users looking for a
device to play classic games will of course download what they want, but that
base set of games will be there, pre-installed, free, and legal. It would take
some searching and verification, but even a handful of free ROM would be good.

RetroPie has an interesting project they call
[Ports](https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Ports). Some of the
engines and games they are porting are free software.
Lastly, it could be really helpful to provide a platform target for free
software games developers. I'd guess that a device that can run/test games
written in [Godot](https://godotengine.org/), [Löve](https://love2d.org/), or
[Pygame](http://www.pygame.org/) would be rather attractive.
