New details surface on the POLYMEGA clone system

The ultimate way to play NES/SNES games?

It's been awhile since we've talked about the POLYMEGA, a console that aims to let you legally play NES, SNES, Genesis, SEGA CD, Neo Geo CD, 32X CD, Turbo CD, PC Engine CD, Saturn, and PS1 carts/discs. It appears the project is going well, as a handful of new details have been shared.

- second round of pre-orders kick off in May, and retail pre-order info is coming
- 14nm supply shortages are affecting the ship date for Polymega
- SNES Emulator has expansion chip support for SA1, SuperFX, CX-4. DSP-1/2 + variants
- includes only in-house created or legally licensed software
- emulators are best in class and only one of them could run on a low-power arm device
- support for NVMe M.2 2280 SSD's via expansion port
- SD expansion remains intact, up to 1TB
- Polymega hardware is finished and runs a powerful 35W Intel Coffee Lake S series Processor which can be upgraded

I'm interested in this for N64 and PS1 only. Sounds like an expensive proposition though.

EDIT: Forgot N64 isn't even included. Crap.

It's looking like something I'd be interested in. Though I'd love to see it in action before I consider picking one up.

Just the list of systems has me asking one thing, why not anything pre-NES for that matter? Probably don't want to bother with the older hardware generations that were before given that the Colecovision and Intellivision happen to have their own controller keypads or a number of other options.
