There were some recent concerns around Playmaji, the company behind the Polymega console that lets gamers enjoy their original retro CD-ROM-based games and even cartridge-based ones from modules. Playmaji missed the most recent release window (February 2021) and also had its business license suspended in California, where it is based.
In a tweet, the official Polymega Twitter account said that the license suspension is a "temporary hiccup" as it is due to a failed auto-payment and that it should be restored "shortly".
This is a temporary hiccup for our California LLC (basically a IP holdings company) due to a failed auto-payment from an old CC on file. Should be restored shortly!— POLYMEGA (@polymegaHQ) March 9, 2021
Speaking to NintendoLife, the company had the following to say:
There was some kind of issue with our last tax payment in 2020 related to an old credit card we had on file. We're paying a penalty for it, and our accountant is resolving it now. Also, it's worth noting that Playmaji, LLC is just one of our corporations – we have multiple, so the tax suspension is just for California.
Regarding the console launch delay, the company attributed it to slower production from their Myanmar factory, where the console is assembled, due to the ongoing protests. Playmaji told NintendoLife the following regarding this issue:
Polymega is still shipping but its coming out slower than expected from our Myanmar factory due to the protests that are happening. The modules and controllers are made in China, while the console is assembled in Myanmar. The timing is changing daily which is why we haven't announced anything concrete yet. We are still on track to ship everything here over the next few weeks.
