In 1991, Sega released the Mega CD, an add-on for its popular Sega Genesis console.  Though an innovative creation, it was not considered a total success.  A number of factors prevented the Sega CD from attaining a dominant position in the videogame market at the time. The initial high price prevented the add-on from selling well.  With the competition heating up, Sega released the Multi-Mega (CDX in North America) in April of 1994.

The Multi-Mega was a single unit that combined both the Genesis and the Sega CD into a single unit.  The sleek design was slightly larger then a normal CD Player.  Unfortunately, the $399 was a severe deterrent, especially when the standard gamer could pick up the Sega CD and Genesis for far less.  Overall, a great system but more work (and money) than its worth to us standard gamers.
