Polymega Busted Using Arcade Footage to Show Off System Running Sega Saturn

Polymega a new system boasting the ability to play all your retro classics from cart systems like snes and turbografx, along with cd systems like ps1 and turbocd. The big reveal was Sega Saturn though they had the internet going nuts, myself included. But upon further investigation it looks like the Polymega team has been busted faking the funk. While we were all excited about Saturn it seems the gameplay footage was from the Sega Rally arcade game according to @saturnmemories on Twitter.

  1. It’s so annoying when companies do this. The officially licensed mini Genesis that they sell at places like Target includes screenshots on the back from the arcade version of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. What the customer is getting looks WAY different than what the box itself shows.

  2. I wish I could say this was something that’s never been done before, and give everyone hope that it may never be done again, but unfortunately that may not be the case as even Nintendo themselves have gotten away with this: during an early N64 press event, Cruis’n USA was showcased. For one, they claimed that the arcade machine used N64 hardware when it in fact didn’t even come close. Second, they showed footage from the arcade version and claimed it to be the N64 game despite the actual N64 version being blatantly inferior.

    Hi Author, merely a small query, I learn somewhere that if I have a couple of sites then I can use typically the canonical tag on a web page of my first site to point to a page within the second website, Is that true?
