Product Description

Love having a Sega Genesis with CD add-on, but hate having two huge brick power adapters and a huge fat behemoth taking up too much room? This system is perfect for you! It's sleek design only uses one power adapter and combines a Genesis and CD into one manageable console. It is officially licensed from Sega, so it plays ALL the games and exactly as they're supposed to look and sound. Plus it's made by JVC so it's sturdy and very well put together.

Like the Sega CDX, this is a Genesis/Sega CD combo system that uses only one AC adapter, which is great for those that have multiple systems hooked up.

The difference between this and the CDX is mostly cosmetic. The X'eye is larger and, IMO, less sexy than the CDX, but in my experiences (and a ton of heresay on retro forums), the X'eye is a much more reliable piece of hardware - the likelihood of bumping into a CDX unit where the CD portion has crapped out is much greater than finding a similar problem with the X'eye.

Supposedly, the CDX can output better quality audio, but I sincerely doubt that the average gamer will notice the difference - It all sounds the same to me, but I'm not claiming to be an audiophile either.

For those that are curious, the X'eye can play imported games without the use of a Game Genie because it does have a slightly larger slot for cartridges, which isn't possible with a CDX without modification. However, I have heard that the imports that will run are older (pre-93') games. I'm not perfectly sure, so I would ask some questions in some retro forums if it's going to be the primary reason to buy one of these.

Since an X'eye can often be pricey, I would definately do some research into the Sega CD library. There's no real point in getting this if you really can't stand the Sega CD library, which does have a handful of great games, but might not be for everyone. For those that have a moderate to deep interest in Sega CD games, this is a fantastic option that I would suggest over the CDX for it's reliable hardware.

sewer shark was fun (back in the day) but collectors expect people to pay $5oo dollars for the worst video game systyem ever? it only has about 30 games, and most of them suck!! do not waste ur money. get an emulator. the only system that sucked more was virtual boy.
