Philips CD-I Infomercial
Holy, crap this is both badand good. I never came across thisinfomercial back in the 90s, but I would have loved it. The games look really horrible, but I can seewhat they were going for.
I love how the commercialkeeps using the word (Interactive).
Looking at the Wiki page, Sonyeven developed CD-IS called Green Book. It was a CD format used on the CDs in the CD-I.
Plus, Philips had the rightsto Nintendo characters after they attempted to develop a CD add-on to the SNES called theSNES-CD. The games were leftover rights from that scrapped deal betweenPhilips and Nintendo. Sony’sPlaystation would also emerge out of this twisted history too.The Biggest problem with the CD-I was the pricetag. It went for 700 at launch. Plus, the Sega CD add-on sold better thanthe CD-I. And, that’s saying a lot. I vaguely remember reading about this gamesystem back in the day.
