Polium, an NFT console developer, is being accused of copying the GameCube's signature logo. The Polium One is its latest console, dedicated specifically to crypto gaming and the NFT space. The "multi-chain" device is set to launch in 2024 but it has run into some backlash from hardcore Nintendo fans.
The Polium One's logo looks similar to the GameCube's, if you flip it upside down and remove the color.
The console devleopers have denied the accusations, tweeting in recent days that they did not copy the GameCube logo. They went on to state that multiple companies have similar logos. Despite that, change is coming.
"But we will illustrate a new logo that is original," a Monday tweet added.
Despite the backlash, Polium stated that Web 3 Gaming is the future and are confident in their first console. It will have exclusive games and is currently being built by a team familiar in hardware and software development. No pre-orders will be available until there is a prototype up and running, developers added.
While crypto products in general have mixed response from internet culture, Polium has impressed some with its specs. It will have 4K Ultra HD, 120 FPS cap, and even a fingertip scanner.
