NEC Turbo Grafx 16 Holiday Edition
(NEC - 1990)
To compete with other systems that were being deeply discounted for the holiday season, NEC released some special holiday edition TurboGrafx 16 systems. They had already reduced their pricing down to $99.99 previously but were losing traction to other cheaper and less capable systems. This was a common malady in the early wars between gaming systems. People would opt for price over quality... and this type of behavior prematurely ended the lives of many superior systems over the years.

The price for the holiday edition was set at $69.99 and some fun bonuses were included in the package. The first bonus piece of promotional swag were the Air Zonk "Power-Up!" toy binoculars and the second were some Bonk promotional stickers. They also included a mail in card for a free game for your TurboGrafx 16. All in all, it was an awesome deal for just under $70!
