Moto Roader! Double Dungeons! Shockman!
It's been announced that the TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine module (or the EM04 “Turbo” Element Module Set to give its full title) for the upcoming modular retro console Polymega will include five licensed pack-in games playable from the module itself. The five bonus titles are Moto Roader (NA and JP versions),...
And House of the Dead and Time Crisis!
Light gun-based video games are as old as the games industry itself – in fact, the very first consoles came with gun accessories which could be used to shoot objects on-screen. However, these devices were heavily-reliant on CRT technology found inside old television sets, and the move to flat-screen, LCD and...
Time to dust off your entire vintage library
The classic-gaming-as-viable-business landscape looks wildly different from its form a decade ago. Where retrogaming fans once had to make do with Nintendo's haphazard Virtual Console release schedule and an occasional dribble of retro compilations, today we have something approaching an embarrassment of...
Along with some bad news
We've had our eyes on the modular Polymega console for quite some time now, and with good reason – if these guys can pull it off, it will be the ultimate one-stop retro system, covering consoles such as the NES, SNES, Mega Drive / Genesis, Mega CD and even Neo Geo CD.
"There are things we definitely could have done better"
Like a great many retro gamers out there, we've been following developments surrounding the Polymega console closely for quite some time now. Originally announced as RetroBlox, this modular system is built on a single goal: to offer modern-day players access to the original, physical-media...
Sega Rally! Guardian Heroes! Panzer Dragoon!
It's fair to say that the launch of the Polymega pre-order campaign didn't exactly go according to plan. The Polymega site was subjected to an attack just as the campaign went live which sent it down for a few days and meant many people weren't able to place their orders, and when the dust had settled...
Plans in place to sell cartridge and CD games digitally
We've had our eyes on Polymega for quite some time, and even got the chance to go hands-on recently, which only made the wait for this amazing retro system even harder. The unit was supposed to go up for pre-order this week, but there have been teething issues - one of which invol
Touted as the world's "most compatible" games console, the Polymega is now available to pre-order from the official website (note: the site is currently down due to the sheer demand for the device). To coincide with the system's availability, the team behind it has released a launch trailer, which also reveals Sega Saturn...
If you’ve been keeping your eyes on these pages, you know that we’re keenly interested in Polymega, the new retro console by Playmaji, Inc. We tracked down Bryan, the company’s founder on the E3 show floor last week to talk about, and more importantly, actually play the thing. The Polymega is a sight to behold in the flesh; it...
NES! Genesis! TurboGrafx! SNES!
Polymega - the console formerly known as RetroBlox - is one of the most exciting pieces of retro hardware on the horizon. Unlike other examples, it uses special modules which enable it to play a wide range of vintage games. The catch is that each of these modules has to be purchased separately, but the selection...
More news coming this year
Polymega - which began life as RetroBlox - is a name we haven't heard much of over the past few months. The modular system aims to offer support for several key vintage gaming formats using removable sections which house the interface for each console's media and controllers. It's a really interesti
Clue: it's a bit of a MEGA SHOCK
Polymega - the modular retro gaming system formerly known as RetroBlox - is shaping up to be an incredibly interesting piece of kit. It supports various retro systems via modules which come with cartridge slots and controller ports for that particular console, and these bolt onto the base unit which also
A new supported CD format will be announced next week
A short time ago we reported on RetroBlox, the world's first modular HD retro gaming system. Designed to support a wide range of games via swappable modules - including CD-based systems, which is quite unique - RetroBlox will be hitting Kickstarter soon, but it will have a new name: Polymega...
"For the people who are speculating $300, it won't be nearly that much"
The announcement of RetroBlox (now known as Polymega) came as something of a surprise a few weeks ago, but in many ways this proposed system is a logical evolution in the growing "clone" hardware market. Built around modularity, RetroBlox aims to offer the benefits of...
