It has the same CPU as the NEC PC-FX.
Yeah, it's more powerful than any 16-bit system. It was marketed as a 32-bit system.

Someday you should try playing it with a VB controller, or better yet, with a VB system. It's the same experience but on another level.

Not him but VB while high is awesome.
The VB isn't nearly as bad as most people meme it to be.

One of the most ergonomic and symmetrical controllers ever, though.

But Teleroboxer wouldn't be the same if not on the actual VB. I'm a bit of a VB fanboy (although I recognize its design problems), but I always loved the "feel" of the VB. It's feels like being inside a small red-lighted theatre, all alone just you and the game, can't get the same feeling when you play on regular screens. That, and the 3D effect which is impressive although not all games needed it.I consider the VB more of a prototype than an actual finished product. So, from a regular consumer standpoint, the VB is ridiculous. Not really just because of the red-black thing, or the fact it used 6 batteries (although it had a SNES AC adapter). The bizarre thing was the thing itself. The tripod, the big helmet-like VB set, and the fact that you have to break your neck (or nose) in order to play with it.
Scrap the "VB gives you cancer" meme, it should be "VB will break your neck".
But from a hobbyist/enthusiast standpoint, it's a really interesting piece of hardware with some clever/unique design choices. I for one love the controller, its symmetry, it's grip, it's really comfortable to hold and having 2 of these amazing d-pads (maybe Yokoi's best designed one) is a huge plus. Teleroboxer is a game that benefits from the double d-pad. It's not the same to play it emulated using a regular controller.
The library is small but most of the stuff in it is interesting.Most of the games are fun to play, although many are simple arcade-style games. I think the only turd on the console is Waterworld, but the rest is solid. The japanese catalogue is even bigger with some games like Gundam DW.
Plus rarities like the first Megami Tensei-related games localized for the west, Jack Bros. Actually pretty good game but has gotten hella expensive.Hardware-wise, the micro is the same one as NEC's PC-FX. It's a 32-bit micro so even if the games are in red and black, the sprites are all pretty big, detailed and gameplay goes at constant 60fps, it boasted a pretty good resolution

it's just very ergonomic and symmetrical. The only retarded thing it has is that you use the battery pack on the controller instead of in the actual headset. But should it be turned into a USB pad, it shouldn't need to use it.

I actually got mine for cheap in 2010.

The best part? the previous owner was a really hot chick so I don't mind sitting my face on it even if it's used.
