Known as the PC Engine outside of America. A delayed release accidentally led to SNES and Genesis competition, when it was originally supposed to compete with the Famicon AKA NES. The console housed 16-bit dual GPUs, and was capable of delivering 482 colors simultaneously. With dimensions of just 14 cm x 14 cm x 3.8 cm, the Japanese PC Engine is the smallest major home videogame console ever made. In Japan, the PC Engine sold well. Delayed release and poor marketing led to failure to penetrate the North America market. At least 17 distinct models were made.
