Polium One recently unveiled its Web3 gaming concept and showed it to Twitter, which was quick to point out its absurdity.

Polium One has recently unveiled their Web3 gaming concept and it’s unrealistic specs have drawn a lot of criticism from Twitter users. Polium tried to address fans’ concerns but each answer they gave only prompted more questions, leading people to believe that the entire product/reveal was a farce to draw money from investors— nothing more than empty promises.

Here are some of the reactions from Twitter:

“ah yes, the “wallet button””

“We are introducing the Polium One, A multi-chain console for Web 3 Gaming. #Web3OnConsole

“A lot of criticism and mixed reviews. Web 3 Gaming will be the future . We will have a functional prototype ready before we take any pre-orders or funding. Let’s clear some things up.”

“We did not copy the Nintendo’s GameCube logo. There are multiple companies that are using a similar logo. But we will illustrate a new logo that is original.”

“”we did not copy the logo” “we will make a new one that is original” Meaning the first logo wasn’t original, and was therefore copied?”

“New logo is underway #Web3 #Web3Gaming #decentralized

“The console will have games and exclusive games. We are currently in talks with different Web 3 Game Developers and will make some announcements soon. We know that a console can’t be successful without games.”

“you’ve implied that this console would get around having to use “multiple websites” for games. So how would polium work with Steam/Sony/Microsoft/Epic/Nintendo as far as exclusives, or if it means to compete, what AAA exclusives does your storefront have lined up?”

“We have experience in hardware and software. The console will be built and we will execute on the roadmap. This space bashes builders who are building for Web 3 to help it expand. We are also building the console for ourselves and will not stop.”

“even as someone with no real hardware experience, the vague specs you give for the system are unrealistic given the form factor. even if you come up with some more concrete specs suitable for 4K120 or 8K60 gaming, how exactly are you going to manage the thermals that generates”

“Oh wow, 8K 120fps with ray tracing and HDR?

That totally doesn’t sound completely impossible for an independent studio to do on a system that small (completely ignoring the NFT bullshit and the fact that you’re using stolen game artwork in your promotional material)…”

“Also, you know you’re running out of features to put on the box when you’re advertising the ability to use multiple programming languages for game development (a feature literally every video game platform currently takes advantage of).”

“And they’re not even using real NFT games in the promo art either.

“Highstreet” shown in that picture is using promo art from the game Crayta.”
