The PC-FX was a video game console released by NEC in Japan. It was the 32-bit successor to NEC's PC Engine known in the US as the TurboGrafx-16.

Unlike the PC Engine the PC-FX was only ever released in Japan, where it is seen to have been a commercial failure, unable to compete effectively with its fifth generation peers. The PC-FX was NEC's last dedicated video game console, and was discontinued in February 1998.

This serial number for the console in our collection is 5Y04019YE.
