    Following the delay due to COVID-19, the TurboGrafx-16 Mini has found a new release date, at least in the United States. Those that pre-ordered the throwback console on Amazon can expect theirs to ship soon, and arrive on May 22nd. Initially, the system was supposed to release on March 19th worldwide, but it only managed to launch in Japan, with European shipments delayed indefinitely. The official Twitter account from Konami states that they're keeping an eye on a situation, and for those in Europe to hang in there as they try to get a new release date set in stone.

    Liked Europe version than ugly USA version but I wont be buying it because most games sucks except Castlevania. Not good enough so I will save my money for PS5 since I already have SNES MINI and NES MINI EUROPE VERSIONS!

    Oh this seems like a classic throwback to the old 8/16 bit days when Europe got new consoles and games way after Japan and America lol.

    Ah good, glad when I saw the release date on Amazon it wasn't just a placeholder :lol:

    Nabbed a pre-order yesterday, since I'll never get my hands on a real TG16 in good condition for cheap, so this is a good enough alternative I suppose.

    Not even the Raspberry pi 4 is powerful enough for that. But it is powerful enough for somewhat accurate Playstation emulation.

    That makes the Playstation Mini even worse.

    How are those Raspberry devices I remember a friend of mines had one and he had to build it... I asked him why he just didn't buy an android box is there really a perk into owning one vs an android box?

    Raspberry Pis are cheap ($35), have long time support from the manufacturers and the community, and can do a ton more things than any Android TV box can. I can think of a whole 1 Android TV box that's any good whatsoever, and that's the Shield TV at $150+.

    Got mine from Japan, pretty quick to Europe.
    Okay, you have to pay additional Tax / Shiping, but it was only 20%.

    I would honestly prefer one of the smaller ones, not this honking beast.

    Meanwhile I've had my Core Grafx for about 2 weeks now.

    Amazon Japan is your friend.

    Neat :) For the fans of the past system that must be welcome.
    But I am waiting on a Nintendo64 ... now that is something I would reallly reallly like.
    (Not getting my hopes up on that though)
