5.0 out of 5 stars Expand the Turbografx library exponentially! December 13, 2012
By jSten
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This expansion lets you play CD games on the Turbografx system. While comparable to the Sega CD, assuming a similar level of game support is a huge mistake. The CD system was hugely popular in Japan, with more CD games than chip games. Also note that all CD games are region free, so this unit will play CD games from Japan with no hassle.

There were only 94 Turbochip games released in North America. If you get a region converter to play Japanese chip games, there are 287 of those. On CD, there are 417 games released (both regions, since CD games are region free). I think you can see the benefit here.

In addition to playing CD games and music, the CD attachment also includes stereo output, and internal memory to save game data. Even your existing Turbochip games will look and sound better when running through this attachment.

If you get a CD attachment still in the box, you'll receive the largest console expansion box you've ever seen. Included is the CD player itself, a casing that links it to the Turbografx (bigger than the Turbografx itself), and a carrying case to hold the whole thing (bigger yet).

The CD player itself is surprisingly simple. It looks like a Walkman with an added output for the console. Given that this is a NEC product, that shouldn't be surprising I guess. It even has play/stop/ff buttons on it for music CDs.


When you assemble the CD attachment into the Turbografx, make sure you turn both knobs to the locked position. There's one under the CD attachment, and one on the side of where the CD player attaches. The unit will not turn on unless both of these are turned correctly.

There are three types of CD games: CDROM, Super CDROM, and Arcade.
