    Default Turbo Zone Direct - Turbo Grafx collectors read this

    I received this email today from Turbo Zone Direct. If you want anything from them, I would buy now.


    Hello Sean McGrail,
    TZD continues to support TurboGrafx-16!

    On June 1st 1994 TZD opened our doors to embrace the Turbo community. In turn thousands of you have kept alive a videogame platform that proved more resilient than anyone could imagine. You folks made that happen.

    Though gaming has changed dramatically since the TG-16 first came to market in 1988, few among us would argue that Turbo games were just more 'fun.' True gamers know and value style over flash, game play over eye candy.

    But the business climate has changed, especially here in California. And TZD must change with it. For years the volume of sales carried the day and the owners of TZD fought to keep prices low even knowing they had a corner on merchandise trading for outlandish prices elsewhere. Now we find we must adjust pricing on our remaining inventory to ensure that we will be here when you need us.

    Do not despair, we will not make any changes before next Tuesday September 2nd. Any orders postmarked before that date will be accepted. So if you need! anything, or just want to pick up a few games, now would be a good time.

    Soon we will add a "Collector's Corner" for rare Turbo items not available for many years at any price. We'll be adding to that collection so check back from time to time.

    Thanks again for your contined support, with that we'll soldier on.

    "We're STILL here for you!

    He's upping the prices of some hardware and some software to match the going rates from what I understand. Some of hte huCards are going up by $10, and some of the hardware is going up as well. I'm putting an order in in a couple days to beat the price hikes

    The variety of items at TZD has shrunk quite a bit over the last year or so. Maybe they put some items away in a warehouse or maybe they have sold out of the items. I just don't know.

    As far as I know, he sold out of everything....I don't think anything got stashed unless it was for a personal collection.

    I've heard rumours that a lot of their stock went to LikSang.
