TechEruo Century 16 is the first home video game console in the Century series. It was developed by TechEruo. In North America, it was distributed by Nintendo in the first third of the consoles lifespan, although, in 1992, TechEruo now distributed it themselves.
Century 16 was launched in 1990, in Eruowood with the price of $259.99. The console features 4-player controller ports, 16-bit color graphics, 64MB max cartridge. It has similarities to Sega Megadrive/Genesis. The US manufacturing was originally in Louisville's GE Manufacturing, but was moved to TechEruo's new New Orleans US office/manufacturing plant in 1991, it can easily be told apart judging by the serial numbers "C16-000" and "C16-001-NOLA". European (or really any PAL region, besides Eruowood) GE consoles are extremely rare and cost $10,000 Eruowoodian Bucks.
