A look at a PC Engine LT | Ashens

  • Published on Nov 9, 2019
  • Forgot to mention: LT stands for laptop! Yay!
    Quang's got a game coming out soon, have a gander: thexvid.com/video/ln3kaufVupk/video.html
    The PC Engine LT - a big chunky clamshell that won't run off batteries! Like a giant Game Boy Advance SP that you can't play on a bus. But it's a great way to play Air Zonk in bed! (You'll need an adapter if you have the Turbografx-16 version.)

    I imagine at one time ashens wanted to start filming on a table, or perhaps a nice desk. But then realized he was too far deep...

      4:30, you can power it using an external battery pack. The Lynx uses the same connector, and you can use the Lynx's official external powerbank

    Hi I love the videos on the cheap hand held games. You hate them all lol, but my question is have you ever found any of them quite good? Or dare I say, impressive?

    Can we get a "reprint" of these? I love how clunky it is. I mean I know for its time it was super duper sleek and awesome...

    I wonder why they decided to change the form factor of the Turbo Express for the Japanese market?
    Or was this a separate product altogether?

    • Asobi tech

      The PC Engine LT a separate product. The Turbo Express in Japan is called the PC Engine GT.

    It was going so well until "no batteries, has to be plugged in at all times." Da fuq!? Seriously, they wanna charge that much and you can't even play it on the train.

    PC Engine line was ahead of its time. You could play your games on your desk with the LT, in handheld with the Express, or on your television with the 16. A synergy that only recently became mainstream.

    What do you think about the new COPPA and FTC rules? Since you review toys you'll be affected. No more money or notifications.

    If they use this form factor and have a built in screen I'd still like a port for an external controller and an HDMI output.

    That bloody deep breathe in every 15 seconds gets extremely annoying! Breathe in a lot quieter or stop breathing all together!

  • LarixusSnydes
    LarixusSnydes 23 days ago

    Yes, quite beautiful chunky device, but the whole thing of having to plug the bugger into an outlet somewhat defeats it's usefulness, unless somebody is already using the telly for something else at the time you want to play a game. But at this price I'm not amazed that these things are rare.

    If you only had some good PC-Engine games, I'm pretty sure this would've been a blast to have back in the 90s

    The bloody video was far too long and the interesting part far too short. I would have appreciated if Ashen had more (and better) games to show off on it.

    You can get composite a/v output from the pc engine portion through the expansion port on the back via cheap passive DIY cables / adapters, if you want to. There was an official adapter sold for that in the states called the "turbobooster". There are now also various enthusiast doodads that plug into the expansion slot and give you scart/rgb/whatever.

    @ashens Technically if you can add an external antenna, it's quite possible to use a digital converter with it to pick up modern tv stations. Yes it would be crazy to want to do that but it's still entirely possible.
