There were so many exciting announcements at E3 2019 in relation to upcoming video games that are set to be released now and 2020 its almost overwhelming. The news regarding future release of the Polymega console is something that everyone is talking about right now. The Polymega is a console can run older generation games from the 80’s and 90’s such as the NES, Super NES, Sega Genesis, TurboGrafx-16, Sega Saturn and more. While the appeal of owning an all in one retro based game console is high the price for the Polymega is reasonable considering the fact that the pre-orders for it is $299. As we wait for the upcoming release of the Polymega it should be noted that the Sega Mega Drive Mini along with the TurboGrafix-16 Mini are expected to be released later this year as well.
When the SNES was first released back in late September 2017 it had a price tag of $79.99. The Sega Mega Drive Mini which includes 40 classic titles from the early 90’s will also be priced at $79.99 following its release on September 19th later this year. While many are questioning whether or not the Sega Mega Drive Mini will surpass the SNES Classic in sales the Polymega is a console that has the potential to sell more than both respective game systems. Its tough to predict how much the Polymega game system will end up selling within its first year. As far as upcoming game consoles are concerned we have Project Scarlett and PlayStation 5 which are both likely to be released sometime in late 2020. Also, we have new gaming platforms such as Google Stadia and Apple Arcade which are expected to take off following their upcoming releases in Fall 2019 which can definitely affect the overall sales of the Polymega.
