Dle mï¿½ho nï¿½zoru jedna z nejlepï¿½ï¿½ch konzolï¿½, kterï¿½ se kdy vyrï¿½bï¿½ly  moï¿½nï¿½ to lehce souvisï¿½ s tï¿½m, ï¿½e je zcela jistï¿½ nejlï¿½pe emulovanou konzolï¿½ souï¿½asnï¿½ doby...
Zaï¿½ala se prodï¿½vat v roce 1988 v Japonsku jako PCE, v zimï¿½ dorazila i do USA pod nï¿½zvem TG16. Bylo to ve stejnï¿½ dobï¿½, kdy na trh pï¿½iï¿½la Sega se svï¿½m Genesis. TG16 mï¿½lo lepï¿½ï¿½ a rychlejï¿½ï¿½ grafiku, Genesis mnohem lepï¿½ï¿½ zvuk, a potom pï¿½edevï¿½ï¿½m... marketing. Jako uï¿½ tradiï¿½nï¿½ v USA, lepï¿½ï¿½ vï¿½robek se neprosadil :((, ostatnï¿½ o mdlï¿½m rozumu americkï¿½ populace bychom si mohli povï¿½dat hodnou chvï¿½li. Ale zpï¿½t ku prï¿½ci. Oproti USA v Japonsku prodï¿½vanï¿½ PCE dosï¿½hlo obrovskï¿½ho obchodnï¿½ho ï¿½spï¿½chu, vznikalo pro nï¿½j velkï¿½ mnoï¿½stvï¿½ originï¿½lnï¿½ch japonskï¿½ch her  pï¿½edevï¿½ï¿½m stï¿½ï¿½leï¿½ek, a alespoï¿½ na krï¿½tkou dobu se NECu podaï¿½ilo bï¿½t ï¿½spï¿½nï¿½jï¿½ï¿½ neï¿½ 'big N'.
PCE se vyrï¿½bï¿½lo v mnoha modifikacï¿½ch  s CD mechanikou, sloty na pï¿½ï¿½davnou pamï¿½, rï¿½znï¿½m pï¿½ï¿½davnï¿½m hardwarem atd. Tï¿½mï¿½ï¿½ vï¿½dy se NEC pokouï¿½el znovu o prï¿½nik na US trh, ale nebylo jim souzeno... Krom vï¿½ï¿½e uvedenï¿½ch dï¿½vodï¿½ to bylo takï¿½ dï¿½ky cenï¿½  400$ za CD verzi bylo opravdu hodnï¿½, i pï¿½esto ï¿½e CD mechaniky byly v tï¿½ dobï¿½ jeï¿½tï¿½ horkou novinkou.
Skvï¿½lï¿½m poï¿½inem byl tï¿½eba Turbo Express  pï¿½enosnï¿½ verze PCE, zcela zpï¿½tnï¿½ kompatibilnï¿½, aktivnï¿½m barevnï¿½m LCD displayem, TV tunerem (!). To vï¿½e na 6 tuï¿½kovï¿½ch baterek ï¿½lapalo 3 hodinky. Pï¿½estoï¿½e stï¿½l 300$ (tj. dvojnï¿½sobek ceny libovolnï¿½ konkurenï¿½nï¿½ konzole od Nintenda, Atari ï¿½i Segy), veï¿½kerï¿½ vï¿½roba se bleskem vyprodala, a na dalï¿½ï¿½ dodï¿½vky se stï¿½ly v Japonsku stejnï¿½ fronty jako u nï¿½s v tï¿½e dobï¿½ na banï¿½ny...
Dalï¿½ï¿½m v ï¿½adï¿½ "inovacï¿½" byl Core Grafx  uï¿½ se pï¿½e rok 1990, design je mnohem lepï¿½ï¿½, a takï¿½ cena nï¿½m ponï¿½kud poklesla  175$.
V tï¿½mï¿½e roce se objevuje PCE Shuttle. Design je opravdu nï¿½dhernï¿½, jen odletï¿½t... :) Na zadnï¿½ stranï¿½ mï¿½l slot pro pï¿½ï¿½davnï¿½ pamï¿½ovï¿½ karty  podotï¿½kï¿½m ï¿½e jsme stï¿½le zpï¿½tnï¿½ kompatibilnï¿½ s pï¿½vodnï¿½m PCE. Chvï¿½lyhodnï¿½ to poï¿½in, ve svï¿½te poï¿½ï¿½taï¿½ovï¿½ zï¿½bavy tehdy zcela nevï¿½danï¿½.
Konï¿½il rok 1990, a NEC vydï¿½vajï¿½ dalï¿½ï¿½ modifikaci  Super Grafx. A tentokrï¿½t nespoï¿½ï¿½vajï¿½ vï¿½echny zmï¿½ny jen v designu. Jeï¿½tï¿½ stï¿½le je to 8mi bit, ale zvï¿½tï¿½ila se paleta barev (4096), maximï¿½lnï¿½ poï¿½et sprajtï¿½ (128), zvuk zï¿½stal stejnï¿½. CD nebylo souï¿½ï¿½stï¿½ systï¿½mu, ale dalo se pï¿½ipojit do jednoho ze dvou expansion slotï¿½. IMHO vcelku pï¿½ekvapivï¿½ se pro nï¿½j pï¿½edï¿½lalo dost her, a povï¿½tï¿½inou tak vznikly nejlepï¿½ï¿½ verze klasickï¿½ch arkï¿½d  1941, Ghouls'n Ghosts. Jeï¿½tï¿½ ale nenï¿½ konec... ;))
Jsme v roce 1992, a NEC nespï¿½. Na trh pï¿½ï¿½chï¿½zï¿½ Duo. Zcela novï¿½ design, konzole je skoro dvakrï¿½t vï¿½tï¿½ï¿½ neï¿½ pï¿½vodnï¿½ PCE  dï¿½vodem byla opï¿½t snaha proniknout na americkï¿½ trh, vzniklï¿½ prostor v bednï¿½ zabï¿½rï¿½ jakï¿½si zï¿½hadnï¿½ zaï¿½ï¿½zenï¿½, zabraï¿½ujï¿½cï¿½ interferencï¿½m s TV a radio pï¿½ijï¿½maï¿½i. Boï¿½e, ta Amerika, zemï¿½ zaslï¿½benï¿½, na co tam nepï¿½ijdou... Nejsmutnï¿½jï¿½ï¿½ na tom je, ï¿½e to opï¿½t bylo k niï¿½emu  Sega pï¿½ichï¿½zï¿½ ve stejnï¿½ dobï¿½ se svou SegaCD, historie se opakuje, a Duo se stï¿½vï¿½ majetkem pouze nemnoha ï¿½ï¿½astlivcï¿½, kteï¿½ï¿½ za svï¿½ch 300$ dolarï¿½ mohou dnes hrï¿½t vï¿½echny PCE hry (jistï¿½, Duo je stï¿½le zpï¿½tnï¿½ kompatibilnï¿½ i s nejstarï¿½ï¿½mi HuCardy pro TG16).
NEC jeï¿½tï¿½ zaï¿½ï¿½tkem roku 1993 vymontoval z Dua vï¿½echen americkï¿½ antiinterferenï¿½nï¿½ shit, a pod nï¿½zvem Duor a s novï¿½m designem kasï¿½roval videoherchtivï¿½ japonce... Tato labutï¿½ pï¿½seï¿½ NECu v symbolickï¿½ bï¿½lï¿½ barvï¿½ se doï¿½kala jeï¿½tï¿½ jednoho, opravdu uï¿½ poslednï¿½ho updatu, kdy pod nï¿½zvem Duorx, vybavena 6ti tlaï¿½ï¿½tkovï¿½m gamepadem, byla prodï¿½vï¿½na jako speciï¿½lnï¿½ konzole pro milovnï¿½ky bojovï¿½ch her ala Street Fighter II.
Ve vï¿½ï¿½e uvedenï¿½m vï¿½ï¿½tu jeï¿½tï¿½ chybï¿½ alespoï¿½ letmï¿½ zmï¿½nka o druhe generaci Core Grafx II  opï¿½t pouze novï¿½ design, o PC Engine LCD TV, a nï¿½kolika dalï¿½ï¿½ch, ale dost uï¿½ bylo ï¿½eï¿½ï¿½  o jeden PgDwn nï¿½e uï¿½ ï¿½ekï¿½ pro ty nejvï¿½tï¿½ï¿½ nadrï¿½ence, kteï¿½ï¿½ se textem prokousali aï¿½ sem, to, o co tu jde pï¿½edevï¿½ï¿½m  emulï¿½tor a ROMky...
