Perhaps make a joke on personal computers powered by combustion engines, and use {{whoops}} to link the two articles; but then again, "turbo" also has something to do with combustion engines... Could we expand the abbreviation as "Politically Correct Engine"?

The SuperGrafx is a slightly improved PC Engine (with hardware parallax scrolling support) that was only released in Japan. It was a very big flop[1][2][3]. This should be mentioned as a section of the PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 article, not as a separate article.

European distributors of the TurboGrafx-16 removed the "16" from the name. It doesn't actually have a 16-bit CPU, after all. Make a joke about false advertising.
