Looking for a magazine w/ article on NEC SuperGrafx mentioning 50,000 units manufactured.


Recommended Posts

I clearly remember reading a U.S. magazine (okay could be UK but I doubt it) at a bookstore in the mid-late 1990s about NEC's ill-fated SuperGrafx, you know the beefed up PC-Engine that only had 5 dedicated games made for it (plus 2 that were bi-compatible with original PCE)

The article specifically mentions that around 50,000 SuperGrafx consoles were manufactured.

For a long time I believed this was in an Electronic Games (LC2) in the Test Lab column, but going through the posted contents of each magazine here, I don't see it.

It was not in EGM, GamePro or GameFan. I believe it was published sometime in 1997 but I could be off by a couple of years. I'm thinking anywhere between 1995 and 1998.

Would really at least like to know what magazine I'm even looking for. This is the place to ask!

In the early 90's, before more adult oriented magazines such as Edge/Next Generation came out, upcoming or Japan only hardware and software was always a bit of a mystery. I'd often see ads for game importers in the back of magazines like Electronic Gaming Monthly that featured shadowy consoles with names like, FM-Towns, Core Grafx and the notorious Supergrafx.
