Ranking as one of the most unusual-looking consoles of all time, the NEC PC Engine Supergrafx was a strange machine. It was a PC Engine at heart, with extra RAM for graphics and slightly better sound. It accepted PCE HuCards and could be connected to the PCE CD-ROM system, making it the only NEC console to accept all PCE software. However, only a handful of dedicated Supergrafx games were ever released (including an excellent conversion of Ghouls 'n Ghosts) and the machine quickly faded away as the original PCE took centre stage.
