This Infamous second add on for the Sega Genesis was released in late 1994, at the low cost of $159.99. It was just in time for the coming Christmas season. Coming off the success of the Genesis, Sega seemed almost invincible. Sadly, the timing of the 32x could not have been more poor, as the next Sega console was already on it's way out. Sega's first ever stand alone CD based console, the Sega Saturn. With gaming transitioning to CD based media, and a CD add on already out for the Genesis(Sega CD), a cartridge add on seemed like it made very little sense to the regular consumer. Unfortunately, developers agreed, and the system failed to gain traction with 3rd party support. The 32x was discontinued in 1996, with less than two years on the market. The library only had a staggeringly low 36 games in the US region. Considered a commercial failure, and one of the mistakes that attributed to Sega's loss of market share, the 32x stands as a unique piece of gaming history.
