September 1989 Computer Entertainer
The September 1989 issue of Computer Entertainer has arrived and they have some hands-on impressions of NEC’s TurboGrafx-16. We have to admit the games sound like fun, but the asking price of $200 for the system (which only comes with one controller and requires an adapter to even add more players, which means you have to sink another $60 or so just to play two player games!) seems steep and we’re not sure the gaming market will support such a move from basically an unproven gaming company. Time will tell, but the Sega Genesis seems to have the edge in both graphical capabilities and brand recognition. The full issue is below!
