TurboGrafx-16 gets miniaturized

Recommended Posts

Who saw this coming?  Glad to see Konami making an obscure console and some of its games available for those who never got to play it.

This is pretty cute. Also will go nicely with all my other mini consoles. I'm excited that of the games so far announced one is a CD game (Y's 1&2). I hope that means we will get more. a dream would be Rondo and a bunch of shooters.

If it's not a pile of shit, I'll add it to my mini collection.

 

I actually.grabbed the PS Classic this week. Amazon had it for $30 and the husband and I split it. He mostly just wanted the controllers.

I was very surprised to CD games amongst the list.  Can't wait to see what else will be announced and given they own Hudson, they have easy access to some pretty big titles for the console.

Konami had M2 do the Castlevania collection so here's to hoping just like the Genesis mini, M2 will be apart of this one as well.

M2 doing it would be an automatic buy for me. 

 

I don't buy these thing to actually play, since I own the original systems and the games I want, but I'd don't want to give my money to a half assed product.

I really hope m2 is also involved on this one and it’s not a pile of crap.

 

with that said, i’m hitting my limit on space for mini consoles. :/ (i’ve got 6 so far plus add a 7 when genesis hits).

I have only one major complaint so far... Why is Europe getting the Core Grafx Mini?!?! That's the one I want the most :cry: and depending on the game selection i'd like to not end up with 3 of these.  (my actual PC-Engine is a Core Grafx).

Yeah I want to buy this. I will most likely still keep playing the originals. However I can stick this in another room or take it with me to a friends house and such. I wonder if this will come with a multi-tap. You know since one controller port. Although not many 2 or more player games.

One day i’ll cave and buy a turboexpress :money:

It's not really worth it. Ours has done nothing but sit on a shelf for display.

I know, because I'm the same way. :p 

 

I have limits, though. But we had all the other TG models, so it was like "why not?"

No thanks. I had a Turbografx 16 and didn't like it. While there were a very few cool games, there was much more crap on that system.

Uhh what? What games were crap? I can think of more crap on other systems than tg16.

Yeah, I missed out on it back then and didn't even know what it was until adulthood. There are some real gems on the system. I don't play it much, but I can respect what it has.

Have you had the experience when someone asks you the events of a bad experience but you can't remember too many details due to how bad it was? That's how I feel about this system and games. Only games I enjoyed were Splatterhouse and Bonk. I just was underwhelmed by any other Turbograhx 16 game I played. And I recently recalled how bad the games were when I transferred my data from my Wii to Wii-U last summer. I still had money left on my Wii so I went to the store maybe looking to buy a game and I went into the Turbograhx 16 section thinking maybe those games were not as bad as I remembered them. When to the section and I you tubed all those games with Splatterhouse being the only one I wanted cause they were just as bad as I remembered them.

 

I just did not enjoy that system. I often just went back to my NES quickly back in the day.

My husband is selling his spare TG16/CD unit. $600 if anyone is interested in the real deal. :batting:

I saw a loose unit yesterday for $200 Canadian. I think I’m good with my pc-engine. :P

It's a little on the high side, but he's not in a hurry for it to sell and he can always lower the price a bit. But it's comparable to other units that have been selling. Plus it has the official carrying case and it's confirmed to be in working condition, unlike a lot of the listings you see.

 

We have a PC Engine Duo R, a Core Grafx+Super SD System3, another TG16/CD combo, and a Turbo Duo. Plus, the Turbo Express. Might as well get rid of a spare system and make some cash while the thing still functions.

I have two duos, a pc enigne and an Express. I'm good. I'm considering the SSDS3 but I know it has some issues but most worked out or can possibly be resolved with mod after.

My close friend just bought a boxed TG16 this weekend for $300 (~$227). While the box was beat up it was complete including Keith Courage and inserts. Lucky...

Have you ever have someone give a response so vague you just have to chalk up their experience as just something unique to only them.  I seriously could replace your response with NES/SNES/Genesis and the point would be the same.  I mean for all you know my childhood could have been filled with crap like Back to the Future and for that the NES has the worse library in existence.

Providing konami doesn't kick themselves in the balls (they have a habit), I get the feeling the west will get Rondo as some big announcement. 

 

Also USA very much needs a bonk game (pref bonk 2). 

 

-edit-

I'm also going to just leave these fantastic TG16 videos here.
