The TurboGrafx Express was not a popular console. In fact, I don’t know one single person who owned this hand held. The reason being was all the problems the TurboExpress had. All the reviews that came with this console had one thing in common; the problems. Problems like sound failure, battery life(isn’t this always a problem?) and dead capacitors really hurt it’s image.Despite the public being aware of this, TurboGrafx-16 still listed the hand held at $299! Back in 1990, you can imagine how expensive this was for gamers, and during the rise of video games the average age of gamers in the early 90’s was probably around 13-16; unlike now where the average age is 35. How many of these gamers back in 1990 were able to afford a $300 hand held console despite this console being superior to it’s competitors? Just a couple quick facts: The TurboExpress got quite the Hollywood exposure as you can see the system in Enemy of the state, the Doogie Howser T.V series, and the movie 3 Ninjas. Also, this hand held had sold 1.5 million units up till 2007 according to Wiki.
Well, these are quite rare and popular for hand held collectors. Moreover, the TurboGrax Express doesn’t get listed below $150 and even the system by itself gets listed at $300-$500, but I doubt anyone will buy these. This particular auction is different, as it’s running on a regular auction with no reserve except for one problem: yup, the capacitor doesn’t work. But, if you win this for cheap you can fix the problem and still pay less than for a $300+ auction. System comes with a game too!
Soul Blazer Original Soundtrack – This is a really rare auction! A Soul Blazer soundtrack is VERY hard to find, expecially if you’re into YJA. They hardly pop up and I am guessing these were done in limited quantities. Oh yeah, the name on the soundtrack is the Japanese title, “Soul Blader”, but I always liked Soul Blazer because it was different. The price is painful to look at, but eBay’s all about bargaining with the seller :).
