Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

TurboGrafx-16 Turbo Stick

video game controller

The TurboGrafx-16 stands as an example of a home video game system that dominated the Japanese market yet failed to achieve any significant market penetration in the United States. The Japanese version of the system, the PC Engine, outsold the Nintendo Famicom and the Sega Mega Drive (Japanese versions of the Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Genesis). This was certainly not the case in North America. Inferior marketing, limited game releases, and a high sales price ($399) all led to mediocre sales. The system is noteworthy for its CD-ROM peripheral, which was a first in the United States.
