This machine is largely unknown or common outside japan.It tends to go for big bucks on ebay from time to time.Apparently it was the worlds first 32bit console.It took cd's and had some great ports of games.I linked videos below-

Yes from me, I would really like it to get a retroinspection as its a console that Ive never owned and dont know a great deal about other than its usually very expensive when Ive seen them on ebay, its held in high regard and had it an excellent port of Splatterhouse.

I used to dream about owning one of these... even enquired about it. Operation Wolf looked arcade perfect, as did Turbo Outrun.
