A new console has been announced that will be the "world's first multi-chain" machine for Web3 gaming.

The Polium One will be released in the latter part of 2024 and will feature "exclusive games" from Web3 developers, as well as other titles.

It will be made by the eponymous Polium and will be available on pre-order to players who purchase an NFT "Polium Pass" on the Ethereum network. Only 10,000 will be mined, it is reported.

If all of that has already befuddled you and/or put you off, you're not alone. The announcement has already received its fair share of criticism and backlash on social channels.

To be clear from the start “web3”or “web 3.0” is the umbrella term for a series of transparently obvious scams, from the delusions of cryptocurrency to the embarrassment of NFTs. It doesn’t really mean anything, and if you see anyone using it, you know to steer very wide. So yes, the Polium One!

Polium, a company of such renown that it wasn’t even able to get the Twitter handle with just one underscore after the brand name, has announced its intention to create the first console designed for...for...the thingy. You know. The web3 stuff. Um, like, payments! Yes, the payments! You can pay for things on it using all sorts of crypto!

Seriously, that’s all it has. The hilarious website, suggesting a 2024 launch for backers, 2025 for the hoi polloi, has an FAQ that offers absolutely no answers, other than which bullshit payment networks it’ll accept. You, a nocoiner, might want to ask, “What games will be available at launch?” but you’ll only be told, “We are currently in talks with multiple game developers.” Meanwhile, a true believer will want to know that you can spend your pretend money via Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, BNB, Imm...
