I actually know very little about the PC Engine (TurboGrafx-16 around here) or its follow up. Never even saw one in person, not even at retail. I know it was popular overseas. What made the SuperGrafx so bad?

It was a massive commercial flop. I cannot find any sales data for the hardware, but it sold very poorly to be sure. Nowhere near the roughly 10 million that it's predecessor did. The PC Engine had hundreds of games, and the SuperGrafx had only 5....!

- Just found console sales numbers. 75k. A small fraction of the TG16/PC Engine. It was also only released in Japan and France.

I'm actually pretty intrigued by it now. I need to find a history video!
