The Polymega is a modular emulation box created by Playmaji to emulate older systems. Polymega is the first of its kind to support CD-based games and also the first to run on x86 architecture. The base system only supports CDs but modules can be attached for original cartridges. The Polymega is equipped with its own wireless controller, various USB controllers can also be used. Currently ROM files can't be loaded on the system. A store where you can buy and download games is planned for the future.

Emulation[edit]

Playmaji claims to use legally licensed versions of Mednafen, Mesen, Kega Fusion, and MAME with additional bug fixes, CD BIOS development, and replaced YM2610 for Neo Geo CD from Playmaji.[1] It has has a new and improved version of Kega Fusion, now in 64-bit and made by original author Steve Snake. Similar to the Retron5 it will be possible to use ROM translation patches, here loaded from a USB drive.

Controversy[edit]

  • Footage shown in trailer for the console featured video footage of what appeared to be the arcade version of Sega Rally, and not the Saturn one, as was claimed.
  • "Removing" FPGA
  • etc..
