#14297042 TurboGrafx-16 Mini Retro Console (Amazon Exclusive : Pre-orders start July 15th)

Posted by eastx on 12 June 2020 - 05:25 AM in Video Game Deals

I never thought Altered Beast looked Arcade in quality.  And seeing it in motion sucked away any interest I had in the Genesis.  The TG16 had all these colorful games and when Bonk's Adventure came out I knew I had to own that system.  Of course as a "gamer" that had to play everything, eventually I owned both and had plenty of fun with both systems.

Altered Beast on the Sega Genesis looks worlds better than the PC Engine version, and it does look fairly close to the arcade version. It's not flawless, but it's certainly a solid arcade port by the standards of the time.

Has anyone's wired Hori controller shipped? It's frustrating that the console will be arriving here tomorrow but my second controller won't.

Have any of you ever bought one of these just because it's on sale? I've been waiting for a sale for the ones I really wanted but it's never happened. The Street Fighter one, however, is in stock and heavily discounted at the store, but I don't think I'd ever play it much. :rofl:

That's why I bought Rampage and Asteroids - $156 and $75 each.

What's going on with the riser prices at Walmarts? At Brickseek, they all show as $44.88 in the Houston area, but I know that other people have been finding them for clearance prices elsewhere in the country.

 

Also, anybody know of a Houston store with Final Fight at clearance prices?

I ordered Street Fighter. I already preordered Marvel Super Heroes, but Street Fighter will end up being my first mini cabinet.

I also preordered the US model, mainly to support Konami releasing this type of product in the US. Looks-wise, it would be Japan all the way for me.

One of the few instances where the us console looks better than the rest of the world

Said no one ever. The Turbografx-16 is huge and fugly compared to the PC Engine.

TG16 just had a much bigger hill to climb being alongside the more powerful Genesis that had Sega's name on it.  Add in most of the best games on it were not things people recognized from the arcades (since we didn't have the Internet back then).

Most of the best Turbografx games didn't get released in America, you mean. It had a ton of fantastic arcade ports and recognizable properties like Castlevania, Street Fighter, Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Populous, Bomberman '94, etc. that simply weren't released in English. "Johnny Turbo," a producer there, apparently tried to release many of those games, but was often shot down, for whatever reason.
