Formerly known as Retroblox, Polymega's modular, retro gaming system is finally getting closer to the finish line with a pre-order announcement and firm pricing details. The system itself has stayed the same. A base unit lets you insert different modules for different systems and a CD drive is built into the base for CD-based gaming. The company plans to open up pre-orders later this summer for the base unit, which will cost $249 while swappable modules will cost $59. Polymega hopes to ship units shortly thereafter.
