Released in 1987, for the cost of 99,800 Yen, this was a machine of two halves, firstly it has X1 architecture, so can use most of the software library of the X1, X1 Turbo, and Turbo Z software. It also had a PC Engine built in, though the machine was released when the PC Engine format was in its infancy, so it was not able to use many of the later software, such as that released on the CD formats.
The two halves of the machine are independent of each other much like Amstrad's later Mega PC, which had dual Sega Mega Drive / PC capability. So the PC Engine side could not access any X! capabilities and vice versa. The platforms could not be used at the same time.
