OVERVIEW

The Sega CD was released in the States on October 12th, 1992. With CD media on a rise in popularity, Sega wanted to capitalize on that technology. The CD quality music, and larger storage looked to have a very bright future in the world of gaming. However, Sega decided to make it's first attempt into a CD based gaming console an add on for their hyper successful Sega Genesis. So while this was not a stand alone console, and you needed the Genesis to use it, the system built it's own separate CD based library. Not to mention it gave you the option to listen to music CDs you put into the system. Even with it being an add on console to the Genesis, the $299 launch price told customers this was going to be a whole new console investment. Though it wasn't a commercial hit, the 5 years it lived on the shelves were filled with unique, fun, and experimental video games. From spirtes with full rock anthems playing over them, to movie clips, to interactive animation and FMV(Full Motion Video), the Sega CD has carved out a place in gaming history as one of the god fathers of optical media gaming.
