I’ve ignored the PC Engine for too long. Is it cheap to buy one or is it cheaper to do the whole mister thing?

You can get a beat, yellow, but functional "white" original model PCE for ~$50, but games cost a fortune, and controllers are bizarrely rare and ~$30 for a decent one. It's overall an expensive console to get into; and that's just talking about HuCard games. A huge portion of the library is CD-ROM2, and getting a working CD unit is virtually impossible unless it's been refurbished or you do it yourself, even broken DUO units like OP are a couple hundred, and putting together a "suitcase" is only a little cheaper (and still broken). I bought a few cheap PCEs, an RGB expansion port dongle, a few controllers, and a Turbo EverDrive a few years back, but I'm missing such a big chunk of the library I barely play it anymore. Been thinking about getting out of the PCE game altogether honestly.

>> No.6101336

does the turbodrive fit in a duo with its card-lid closed?

>> No.6101346

I believe so, but I can't speak from first hand experience. If I was going to do it all over again I would buy a cheap PCE and a Super SD System 3 —it would end up being cheaper than a working DUO and far more reliable, and I could play all HuCard and CD-ROM2 games. I don't think it had been launched yet when I started buying PCE stuff.

>> No.6101356

Yep, you just gotta make sure the Turbodrive's switch is set to PCE. I got one of the Stone Age ones. Works great. Actually I've made it a point to only buy stone age ever drives (Mega Everdrive v2, Famicom N8, and SD2SNES) and they've all been legit and function well. And the Turboeverdrive is the only one I've bought straight from S.A.G.

Shit, actually the Mega Everdrive v2 doesn't say it's from S.A.G. I could just tell what it was from the pictures when I bought it on ebay.

This guy. I want to agree with this guy, but I can't. Not all television speakers are that bad. And not all games deserve Hi-Fi setups.

>> No.6101404

ProTip: Only get the White Model if you're planning on also getting the Briefcase for the CD-ROM2. Otherwise get the Black Model with the Blue Lettering. Unless you want that Black Super CD-Rom that matches the orange lettering. Honestly there's a bit too much choice when it comes to PC-Engine. I didn't even realize there was a hardware difference between the Duo-R and the RX but there is. The RX has the expanded Save Memory.

100% of stereo games deserve an external setup. It’s not even that the speakers are bad (but they are) it’s more with the positioning. They need to spaced wide to get a proper soundscape.

NEC bet on anime FMV games and VNs as the next big thing when Sony, Nintendo, and even Sega to an extent and by itself the horsepower to compete with even the Saturn. I've also have a hunch NEC were further trying to consolidate their console and PC developments as the PC-98 and pretty much every other Japanese computer was about to get steamrolled by Wangblows 95.

If I want to get into PC Engine, where do I start? I know it's a fairly expensive console, but where do you guys who have a PC Engine get Jap games from? Am I pretty much only limited to Ebay? Is it cheaper than TG16 shit or more expensive? Which version of the console is best? The briefcase, Duo R, or Duo RX? How are the arcade ports compared to other consoles?

This seems like a really fucking neat console and I'm surprised it flew over my head for so long.

where do you live? depending on that you can get a fully refurbished PC Engine Duo-R. in my opinion the ideal system to enjoy CD, Super-CD, Arcade-CD and HU cards.

costs about 200-300€.

games are actually still ok price-wise. not inflated shit like Mega Drive or Neo Geo.

East coast murrica. There's two retro stores in my area, but I've never seen a PC Engine in there. Not that I was actually looking but I think I'd remember it. I'm leaning a lot towards the Duo R, but is the Duo RX worth it for the extra save memory or does the R have enough?
