After the TurboGrafx-16 performed poorly in the United States, NEC decided to cancel the European release of the console. Units for the European markets were already produced however, which were actually US models modified to run on PAL television sets, and branded as simply TurboGrafx. NEC sold this remaining stock to distributors. In the UK Telegames released the TurboGrafx in 1990 in very small quantities. This same model was also sold in Spain and Portugal, though only through selected retailers. No PAL HuCards were ever made, and instead the European system can play all American games without modifications, albeit with the necessary slowdown to 50Hz.
