TurboGrafx-16 PSP and PS3 Games Headed To US
Hudson has confirmed that one or more of the TurboGrafx-16 emulated games that went on sale last week on the Japanese PlayStation Store — a place where many PS3-PSP offerings go and never leave for other markets — will be coming to the US. The hosts of the PS Nation Podcast waxed poetic about how great these emulated versions were not just on the PS3 but also when played on the PSP — they work like any other PS1 title you purchase on the Store. Glenn Percival noted that the emulator used is identical to the one used in other TurboGrafx-16-based game collections they had released for the PSP in the past.
This is something hardcore older gamers have been waiting to see, something the Nintendo online store has done very well — bring in emulated games from other systems. It has them wondering what other developers for other platforms will jump into the pool. The co-hosts of the PS Nation Podcast are die-hard Sega fanboys, so their great hope is to see Saturn games on the system.
I never had or played a TurboGrafx-16. Did you?
