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.
