    Default Was Turbo Grafx 16 Sold As Console(no cords/controller)ONLY?

    I've been offered what the seller tells me is a brand new, sealed Turbo Grafx 16.

    Thing is he also says it's JUST the console inside the sealed box, no cables or controller/game.

    This struck me as weird seeing as selling a console only without any cables at least is weird as hell and unheard of.

    Am I being scammed here? Or was the Tg16 actually sold this way?

    Help needed asap and much appreciated, thanks.
