Best Retro Consoles 2021
If you’re looking for an all-in-one retro console that can handle just about anything retro that you want to put in it the Polymega is perhaps the best, and most polished of all on the market right now and a great choice to kick off our list of the best retro consoles to buy right now in 2021.
The base Polymega has a CD drive that can play discs from the following consoles: PlayStation, Sega Saturn, Sega CD. TurboGrafx-CD and Neo Geo CD. Then, for an additional price, you can purchase modules that can be added onto the base Polymega that can then also play NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, and 32X cartridges.
The Polymega is sleek and professional-looking and can fit in with your modern consoles very nicely on a shelf. What’s also nice is that while there are no guarantees, Polymega may also in the future add additional support for new retro games via a software update or a new module.
Really the only negative is that Polymega is not cheap. The base unit is currently going for about $450, and the modules are about $80 each. You get what you pay for, though, this is a top-of-the-line retro console option.
