The Polymega's journey to market hasn't been a smooth one by any stretch of the imagination, with some customers still waiting to get their hands on the system they laid down cash for many moons ago – but now the product is finally out there, there's been a lot of speculation about where it could potentially go next.
We already know that an N64 module is in development, but one system that fans have constantly been asking about is the Sega Dreamcast.
Playmaji – the company behind the Polymega – has long maintained that supporting Dreamcast would be difficult due to the fact that the system used GD-ROM discs, but in a recent interview with Electric Playground Network, Playmaji CEO Bryan Bernal appeared to offer a little more hope:
We're working on that. We have been vetting it basically since day one, and looking at different mechanisms [by] which you can get at the types of data on the GD-ROM... the media is completely different and there were specialised drives that were made for the Dreamcast. My understanding is that it will be challenging a normal DVD or Blu-ray drive that you could buy off the shelf in 2021 and 2022 to read a GD-ROM disc, but there's more than one way to skin a hamster, or whatever! We are always thinking outside the box... maybe we can look at plugging in an original Dreamcast and load it in that way... something like that. We're coming up with ideas. It's 'TBD' at the moment.
The interview also showed the first footage of the N64 module in action, which you can view around the 23-minute mark.
