    Hi I was wondering are all our questions going to be answered this week, price, release date, bundles , shipping and any new systems that may be added (Saturn and Dreamcast please). Everxdrive support, save states, scanlines, as you can imagine this console is the thing I am most excited for at E3, I couldn’t care less for a PS5 , polymega is the console I wanted when I was 13 in 1989

    $250 is still vague what does you get a base only or a base and a module

    The FAQ says the base unit comes with your choice of one module for “less than” the price of a Switch. So I take that to mean $250 for the base unit and a module.

    This thing gets pretty pricey pretty quickly if you want all the bells and whistles. $60 per module for 3 modules + $250 for 1 module and the base is like $430.

    But then I’m reminded that I paid that much for a PC Engine Core Grafx and Super SD System 3 and I think it’s not so bad. Not to mention what I spent on my OSSC and all the fancy RGB SCART cables.

    So I’ll remain cautious and pessimistic, but color me interested. I also absolutely do not want under any circumstances to be forced into using any kind of online anything. I hate it with my PS4 and I hate it with my PS3. I want to play offline. I don’t want friends. I don’t want Facebook. Everything needs to be optional.

    The system appears to be malfunctioning.  My last post would not appear either.

    phpBB is free and easy to use, maybe they should consider it. 😆 The problem seems to be multi-paragraph posts or something. THIS shows up, but my concerns about online requirements and my rationalizing the cost in my head don’t.

    I like it. The polymega is basically a way for developers to get their share from the used games market.

    Get what share? That’s not great logic. Devs sold their games, and they can sell digital copies. Those are their “share”

    There’s going to be a digital game store, if you look closely at their e3 poster. Like it or not developers want their “share” from the used games market. The polymega is their way to do that, albeit however marginally.

    Those are new digital licenses, not used games.

    You need to think abstractly.

    I could buy a copy of Magical Chase on ebay for $600, of which the original developer gets nothing.

    Or I can get a license of the game from the digital store the polymega will have, whereupon the same developer receives a small cut.

    Thence their share of the used game market.

    I read the FAQ more times than enough and still missed about the unit will come with one module, thanks for pointing that out, I guess you are looking at around £400 for all the modules including shipping to the UK then, ah well glad I started saving a while ago for this

    It’s going to be hard to decide which module to go with first.  No way I could afford them all at once

    Maybe they will do a special deal if you buy tbuy them all at once
