Sega CDX System - 09/12/2007
Gamers longing for a kinder, simpler system to replace the bulky combination of the Sega Genesis and Sega CD received their wish in April of 1994. First announced at the 1994 Winter Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Sega Genesis CDX came as somewhat of a surprise. Seemingly to show the world "look what we can do" rather than "here is what you want," engineers at Sega came up with an all-in-one CD platform that could play Genesis cartridges, Sega CDs and audio compact discs. The appealing part of this equation was that the unit would be similar in size to a portable CD player!

As with most miniaturized technology, the Sega Genesis CDX (known as the Mega Multi-X outside of the U.S.) didn't come cheaply. Gamers who wanted the best of both worlds had to shell out $399.99 to own the hybrid system. This was a significant cost, especially considering both the Genesis and Sega CD could be purchased separately in 1994 for nearly $100 less than the CDX. And while the platform was compact and perfect for road trips, players could only listen to audio CDs using a pair of headphones, since the unit did not feature its own screen.
