    Announced by Konami at E3. I never owned one back in the day but definitely lusted after them with the endless import coverage that the likes of CVG gave them. 6 games revealed so far including R-Type

    I had a PC engine, that thing was so incredibly small and cute already. Looks like in the eu we're getting they grey one, white original or nothing for me.

    Though the eu version has alien crush I see..

    Never had one, always admired the dinky white one from afar. In pre internet era it had a mystical, unknowable quality to it from the little snatches of it I saw in magazines, and one time in an import shop in Corn Exchange Manchester.

    Iíve no interest in that grey thing unfortunately :(

    A mate of mine had one, I loved Super Star Soldier back in the day, looks like I've found what I'll be buying in Japan in November :)

    I recall how I really badly wanted one because it had a version of Street Fighter where you could play as the bosses, which was totally rad

    Hmm, looking at the initial line up of games, the Japanese one is the best version, as it has Super Star Soldier and Rondo of Blood.

    Still, depending on price and availability, it might be worth getting all three if the games list differs massively.

    Oh my lawd. I don't even mind we're getting the Core Grafx one - it's much sweeter than the horrid TurboGrafx one. Day 1 purchase for me, although I am a self-confessed mini console fetishist.

    Optional multitap, too. A Bomberman game is a cert.

    Why isn't it available to pre-order from anywhere, goddammit?

    Same here. The white one has aged so well. Along with the Neo Geo i could only dream of them as a boy.
