I’m still interested in the hacking potential on this- it’s not as powerful as I’d like, but if I could get all my disc based systems running on this I’d be living the dream.

Got an email from Polymega asking to verify my address is still correct and that they will be shipping soon. Maybe they mean it this time? They have certainly gotten plenty into the hands of YouTubers.

Same, got a verification email a few days ago.
Now that my Neo SD Loader was kind of a bust (for now) the Polymega is the only way for me to make good use of my (few) Neo Geo CD games.

Really looking forward to putting my collection on there (probably not going to mod it even if it does get hacked), even got a 1TB SSD all ready to plug in.

I'm actually really looking forward to it.
The Polymega is actually kind of a neat thing for people with large collections.

Leo_DS is a very outspoken critic of Polymega. I wouldn't take his opinion as the gospel truth on the matter. Granted, a lot of his criticism of Polymega is valid but he definitely has a grudge. A good bit of his video was just speculation. That said, it is concerning that we are so close to the promised launch date of November 15th and there has been no public communication from Polymega in quite some time. Another delay is looking likely especially for WalMart and international customers. We'll have to wait and see if it will also apply to those that ordered direct from Polymega.

I got an email yesterday from Walmart. Delayed again but they don't have a real date just December 31st. So it's not happening this month. Or this year.

Hey, what do you know, it's an actual update.
https://polymega.com/blogs/system-softw ... nformation

So another 3 months then (2/21).
A major reason I'm still holding on to my pre-order is that I really think that future light gun option is a must have.

Also, I have this SSD here that I can't use with anything else really.

Can't say I'm surprised about yet another delay, but it is disappointing.
At least I have other systems and ODE's to occupy my time and interests.
