Ever heard of an 16-bit console which was released in 1987, and is actually 8-bit? I'm sure you haven't. If you did, you guessed it. The PC Engine (Turbographx 16 in the US). This console was actually Ill-fated in the US, for that it only sold a few million copies of the game, and that it was expensive. Not to mention that it was launched in 1989 in the US, at the same year the Sega Genesis (Megadrive in Europe), so the competition was in the dust for the the Genesis/Megadrive was more successful, but the Turbographx 16 went down to the dust. The Turbographx 16 was last sold in the US in 1993, while the Turbographx CD came to the picture, which I doubt that in the US was successful. Today retrogaming dedecates The PC Engine as one of the better consoles known to our beliefs. I think the PC Engine is a very polished console, while for the rest, you figure it out whether it's a great console itself, or if it's trash.
Right now, I'm focusing on the japanese games and etc. related to this very nostalgia.
