We still have a few months before the Polymega releases to the public, but the team behind this product keep sweetening the pot before launch.
Polymega’s free pack-in games
To give a little background, the Polymega does not play games directly from the cartridge or disc. Instead, the device creates an ISO file that it then loads onto the build-in hard drive. So, all games will live on your hard drive, whether you purchase them from Polymega’s online store or install them from your discs at home.
Fun fact: The Polymega’s storage capacity can be expanded to 3 terabytes. That’s a lot of retro action.
For those of us repping PlayStation 1, we have a total of seven games coming along with the Base Unit. Those include:
- 40 Winks (PS1 – NA Version)
- Viper (PS1-PAL Version)
- Iron Commando (SNES – NA Version)
- アイアンコマンドー 鋼鉄の戦士 Iron Commando (SFC)
- トップレーサー Top Racer (SFC)
- Battle Squadron (Genesis)
- Rescue: The Embassy Mission (NES – NA Version)

As of this publication, the free games that Polymega intends to include with the fourth module, the PC-Engine, are still under determination. Once that list finally arrives, we’ll be sure to get this post updated for your viewing pleasure.
If you haven’t had a chance to see an example of Polymega’s emulation abilities, then be sure to check out this video on the Polymega running Burning Rangers on the Sega Saturn emulator. The Saturn may be a retro console, but that console has been historically tricky to emulate.
