    I like the cheezy look of the US tg16! I will buy IF:
    1. Emulation is decent
    2. Contaims all Hudson Soft and NEC games (they are owned by konami)
    3. English rondo

    Yeah, after it looked like these mini things might be a thing, I was thinking this would probably be the only one I'd actually really want. I don't have an actual console, and I don't expect to acquire one at this point. Right now, the interest is definitely there.

    I wonder if they'll get the Kato-chan & Ken-chan license (that wouldn't be a problem for the localized version but it'd be silly to have it in the West and not in Japan). The problem is that celebrities tend to charge quite a bit more. Also I'm not sure if the TV network would be involved or not (as this was based on a TV program).

    Amusingly, the Western version of the game got a Virtual Console release back in 2007. Not the Japanese one (it seems). Go figure?

    Konami only owns Hudson Soft. NEC is still a massive company compared to Konami.

    respect the turbo. It is superior compared to the white PC engine, its single board design eliminates the PCEís achilles heel: the ribbon cable that connects the hucard slot to the motherboard. Turbografx is a robust console for the rugged AMERICAN life. (Fuck yeah).

    But TA literally hates everything so what did i expect

    It's like the resigned of the Famicom and SuperFamicom. Bloody horrid and went against everything that was so good about the PC-Eng; small, lovely design super powerful and the same size of a packet of Skips crips.

    Crack on mate. I'll just say the USA redesign was hideous and went against what so so great about the PC-Eng and that was a tiny little box, that was stupidly powerful.

    The North American design isnít bad at all, well, except for how it looks with the CD attachment. Itís much better than the purple buttoned SNES.

    It would have been cool if they gave us a Supergraphx Mini. That way we could have the coolest looking console, along with the handful of games made for it.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    I understand why some people do or do not like the look of the TG-16, but it was totally in line with PC Engine hardware/accessory designs. It retains all of the key physicals aesthetics and the t-bone shape is the same as the SuperGrafx. Even the name TurboGrafx-16 fits in with the rest of the PC Engine line.

    The USA Snes and its games looked like a breeze block and the USA version of the PC-Eng looked like something taken off Michael Knight Car and had all the style and charm of the OG XBox .
    Both with the Snes and Turbo 16 we had hideous and needless redesigns. The Japanese PC Eng system was a thing of beauty and so understated, such power in a little box.

    Would you say the pc engine was the dreamcast of its day? Compact and power in simple aero box. Compared to the rectangle ps2 box and tg16 looking xbox original box? Game cube shape was cool but dreamcast in my eyes is best. Sega always made cool looking hardware across ALL regions !

    Turbo-16 is more the Saturn of its day to me. Popular in Japan. (DC was not) . Similar sales. Practically non-existent in the US. A 3rd man out console.



    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    Yes ,very much so. The Dreamcast minimalist looks and small stature hid what was a brilliant and powerful system. The DC is a thing of beauty

    At first I was happily surprised by this news and then shit happened when I heard that:

    -It gonna have two controller ports

    -It gonna include Hucard and CD games

    Is it true? Because if so, that would be stupid since this goes against the actual system legacy. The PC Engine does NOT have two controller ports (only one for those who aren't aware) and the PC Engine does NOT play CD games (since it needs an add-on to do so).

    And BTW ye, the Turbografx-16 is quite ugly and despite its bigger size, still doesn't have RGB output nor two controller ports.
