    A dedicated Retroarch box with fancy bundles cartridge & controller adapters? Hopefully the 'module elements' are just talking over USB so can be used with a beefier system than the dinky little mobile chip.

    Assumed the same but then I had a little dig. The Polymega uses a 35W Intel Coffee Lake S series Processor that's upgradable to support more demanding systems in the future. Storage uses an SD card upto 1TB but interestingly an NVMe can also be added!

    Making the right moves as well. Working with the emulator developers to fine tune the software. From what I've seen the frontend looks slick and they mentioned the ease of game installation on the Digital Foundry video above. What caught me by surprise is a partnership with Sinden (http://www.sindenlightgun.com/) to create a peripheral for the Polymega. The fact that I could crack out my Sega Saturn copy of Virtua Cop and play it on my UHD flat screen got my attention!
