    I was going through storage this weekend and dug-out my old Sega Genesis. I wanted to fire up some Castlevania Bloodlines, but nope- I only have an RF switch-type connector for it!

    It's gotta be SNES for me.

    I can still remember clearly when I got one. I was walking through a Dick Smith Electronics store back in 91' when I wandered past a display that caught my eye. It was a just released SNES playing Street Fighter II. I turned to my dad and told him I was going to the bank to withdraw my savings, ran to the teller machine before I even heard him reply, ran back to the store and grabbed the console(which came with Street Fighter II), Mario Kart and a second controller.

    It blew me away that I could play arcade quality games like Street Fighter II at home. So many classic games. So many great memories playing them.

    Thanks Nintendo!

    Having owned both I can speak about this idea. It's a little different.
    While the turbo express did support all huCards/turboChip based on regional locality, the huCards/turboChips did not feature non-volatile memory.
    However, the turbografx16 did have an add-on feature called the turbo booster which allowed the user to pause the game, turn off the system, and fire it up later right where the user left off.
