NEC TURBOGRAFX - TURBOExpress Handheld (box 360)



NEC tried its hand at the portable game marketplace with a portable version of their TurboGrafx 16. The result: The TurboGrafx Express.

While Nintendo and Sega were in 8-bit land, NEC was already at 16-bits. In pursuit of their 16-bit vision, the TurboGrafx Express played virtually all of the HuCard games for the console version. At the time, this was revolutionary, a portable system with the power of a console, and with one set of games. And for the fans of import titles, there was the HuCard Converter, allowing TurboGrafx systems to play Japanese titles

The TurboGrafx Express features a crisp active-matrix color display, a D-pad and 2 buttons, plus turbo controls for each button. There is also a communications jack for multi-player gaming, headphone and contrast controls.

The TurboGrafx Express has a dedicated port for the TurboVision TV Tuner accessory, allowing you to watch TV. You can use the antenna, or you can plug in an external antenna or use the A/V connector and plug in a VCR! The picture is crisp and clear on the active matrix LCD display.

A short while after the NEC TurboGrafx release, Nintendo and Sega released their 16-bit consoles. Sega released the Genesis and later Nintendo released their Super Nintendo. Despite NEC being first to the market, NEC suffered a rare condition of too much, too little, too soon. The system lacked the software development that the Genesis and SNES enjoyed. While the TurboGrafx was first, it wasn't able to compete once Sega and Nintendo joined the 16-bit marketplace.
