It is using the same FPGA as the Pocket and the MiSTer. So in theory, it could run any cores that MiSTer can. Personally, I'd probably get the Pocket with a dock instead. Have they even shipped those yet?

Still a very cool device if you have a good collection of PC Engine/Turbografx games.

I'm impressed on the price point. I'm guessing they aren't needing to evolve their hardware too much for this one and maybe just focusing on pure manufacturing for the hardware. But you'd think hardware would be more for both cartridge reading and CD drive.

I think the only concern I'm seeing so far is that Everdrives won't fit in the slot -- but also heard rumor that a revision could be due for the Everdrive.

I have a Pocket on pre-order, so excited about that option. But I would highly consider picking this one up.
The only Analogue unit I haven't ordered (other than their original Neo Geo) is the Mega SG just because I've been content with my setup so far --- but would probably get one someday.

...this is super cool and I'd like to be down but getting TG-16 stuff is pricey and I already have a Saturn habit :lol: I think the Turbo Mini and Wii U VC will be how I get my TG-16 fix.
