    Hi there Turbografx discussion.

    As I havent found any or not much CDs with alpha/beta, debug, or "Not For Resale" text on it, I wonder how "big" the market is.

    Im aware of some NFR discs and cartridges on eBay, but press discs/previews or alpha and beta versions seem to be very very rare on the pc engine / turbografx ?

    no alpha/beta/review , because if it a card game , it direct load game in PC98 with PCE card ( look like PCFXGA)
    if cd, it only use cd emu system

    no review, they only send out photo , or ask editor come to play

    These do exists as I have a few of them. 6 or 7 of them. Theres also the 2 Demo discs for the kiosks. The Duo Demo for Lords of thunder and the Duo Demo for the 3 in 1 pack-in of Gate of thunder but has Air Zonk at the title screen instead of Bonk. Heres a picture of a Couple. The first is a Forgotten Worlds Sample. The Second is A Shadow of the Beat with Build Number on it. These are actual pressed discs and not CD-R's
