    Default WTB: Turbografx - 16

    I'm finally looking to pick up a TG-16. The vintage game store around the corner is asking $99 for a boxed one, fairly rough box. I'm looking for something cheaper, boxed or loose, with or without the CD add-on or TurboDuo dosen't really matter.

    I'm located in 80015, if someone could get me a shipped price, that would be awesome.

    for cheaper than that you can get a region modded coregrafx, which is a much better option

    I had to actually look that up to see what that is. Honestly, I'm not much into modded systems anymore, but would a Coregrafx be cheaper than a North American Turbografx?

    I think that's a good deal for $99

    I'd say that isn't that bad, just keep in mind that like new units are rather common despite the overall scarcity of the hardware

    I sold one a few months ago for $60 (I think) with a few games. I might have another one, but maybe missing a controller. I'll look around and get back to you.

    the coregrafx is a better option as it will let you use pc engine games, which has a much better library than the tg16.

    it also has compoite video built in and is so small that its awesome

    I think I've got a spare unboxed system around somewhere. Are you just looking for console & power supply?

    Yes, I am looking for a system, that is complete, but loose, so I can play the games I have on it.
