Hit the loft, because gaming’s golden age is coming back. The Polymega aims to keep your old cartridges alive using a modular system that lets you add console support, and controller ports for that authentic experience, to one base unit. Using what it calls hybrid emulation to get Mega Drive, NES, SNES and others playing, the Polymega includes a Bluetooth controller for wireless play, and lets you back up your cartridges to its internal memory. It even includes an optical drive in the base unit for compatibility with disc-based systems like the PS1, Mega CD and Neo-Geo CD. If you have a love for the classics, upscale them to HD... Once pre-orders open, that is.
T3 SAYS: If the quality of the Polymega’s hybrid emulation system holds up, this will be essential.
