Spot the two mythical PC Engine Hibino PC Engines.
‘Forget Nintendo and Sega, they are not even a spit in the ocean in terms of power and gameplay. Even the Amiga would be hard pushed when you come up against THE MOST POWERFUL CONSOLE IN THE WORLD.’
Who could forget the first time they saw the Japanese White PC Engine in English magazines? C&VG`s Mean Machines? The Games Machine? ACE? `That` Micro Media Advertisement? The Western gaming World changed through grey importing and some people’s lives would never be the same again, all thanks to the PC Engine.
I became a PC Engine owner in 1989.
The 30th of October 2017 marks the PC Engine’s 30th Birthday.
