Did I pass up on a great deal?

 

I don't know if I need the CD but I played this console at a friends and had a blast...  i owned a sega Genesis at the time and still holds a place in my heart.

I have no idea if that's a good price or not....I've wanted a TurboGrafx 16 for a while, but never see them for sale locally.  Looks to be in really nice shape, though.

These days if in good shape and working conditions yeah probably not too bad a price. The CD attachment is hard to get for a good price.

It's an OK price in my opinion. I've seen better prices but I've seen a lot worse. NES collecting really got big after 2006, more and more of those NES collectors have rounded out their collection and have moved on to greater challenges like collecting for TurboGrafx-16. It's driven prices much higher than they already were. Especially on eBay. The benefit here is that you're buying a system from a known dealer and not a random person. Does it come with a 30-day warranty or return policy? I bet it might.

 

Good prices in my estimation:

TurboGrafx-16 complete console, no box, in good to great condition: $80-$100

TurboGrafx-16 CD complete, no box, in good go great condition: $160-$200

 

The TurboGrafx-16 system and CD look to be in nice shape. It's not that bad of a deal right now, I would take it.

yeah it is really hard for me to find games for it too.

 

i guess i could go evil bay but this story has no games for it

 

and yeah it is harder and harder to find stuff..  I just don't know if I want to part with 300 of my hard earned dollars.

 

thanks for the advice though

My advice is start with the the TurboGrafx-16 console and a few common titles and see if it keeps your interest. You can always add more later on.
