16bit video game console.  Use any video artchitecture you want by
defining it in the FPGA that drives the video out.

I personally do wish that they had made it a 32bit chip.  Not a 32bit
chip that would be competetive with modern consoles, but perhaps
something like a 25mhz SH2 or ARM chip with a 24bit or larger flat
address space.
