TurboGrafx 16 Gaming On The Cheap

Brandon Weicks writes, "The TurboGrafx 16 was the forgotten middle-child of the the 16-bit era. Nintendo was the older do-no-wrong sibling while Sega was the loudmouth look-at-me younger sibling.

Honestly, try to get a japanese PC Engine instead. The amount of games is much bigger and given the success of it in Japan, it's easier and cheaper to find games for it

A region switch is fairly easy to install, and I believe there is a new convertor in the works to replace the stupidly priced older one which is no longer in production.

A Duo from either region is a better bet IMO. Tons of great games on CD. The Macross SRPG is awesome.

I got one of those CoreGrafx + PC-CD combos which come in a little suitcase with AV out, having the CD drive is a must for Castlevania alone, and Street Fighter 1 for novelty

Yes Duo the best option bought my Duo R years ago still running. Games like Lords of Thunder, Castlevania, Gate of Thunder, Soldier Blade, etc put a lot of snes and Megadrive games to shame, fantastic system especially the CD rom stuff, incredible little system.
