Konami Announces The Turbografx-16 Mini

Recommended Posts

Because everyone else is doing it and the fan boys with the grey hair and the stable incomes will spend their nostalgia bucks.

WHY?!?!?!!

Bonk's Adventure!!!

Seriously though, this one doesn't hit me in the nostagacles. I never did own a Turbografx-16. I'm a bit interested, but I will probably let this pass.

I'm not interested.  I might be thrilled to get a Mini Genesis as a gift, but I don't need any kind of mini console.  I just don't seed the fad.

Ideally, I feel that supporting these projects signals public interest for retro games. It may help renew the gaming industry's interest in preserving video game history, a role the emulation scene has traditionally filled. I can't see them ever doing so with the same attention to detail, but it would signal a good shift in thinking. One toward preservation, rather than neglect.

Having said that, I have enough of these mini consoles already. Also, I don't think the industry cares about old games or feels loyalty to their aging demographic of nostalgic would be coustomers. This is a cash grab on the coat tails of Nintendo's sucess with the NESC and SNESC. That all.

Yep, Nintendo proved that  you could neglect your fans by dropping a handful of units (comparatively speaking) and watch everyone go nuts over them, so now everyone releases them in bulk and floods the market with this landfill.  I'll take the real thing over any of these minis, although the SNES almost turned me to the dark side.
