I can't lie. I got bored after a while with my Wii and realized that I needed to trade it in for a more modern console. I chose the Xbox 360 and haven't looked back. I'm EXTREMELY happy with my purchase.

Honestly, after having a Wii and then trading it in for a 360, I've had a chance to try both the VC and Live Arcade and I would say Live Arcade is more worth getting a 360 than the VC is getting a Wii for. Besides, Nintendo IPs, there is an alternative or the same exact version of almost every VC ga...

Re: Phillips CDI - The Games

Remember all that, plus they raped Mario and Zelda too. Mario Hotel is a good game, by CD-i standards. But, that is what really bothers me MOST about the CDi. It was a neat system. It was (at the time) a very original kind of gaming and entertainment system. But, it just failed to live up to any po...

Dang, pushed the wrong button and submitted to fast. I meant to add four options, and strangely cannot edit the poll now. The other two options that I'm aware of (although I think they fall into the "also ran" category): * Phaser Patrol (SuperCharger/Arcadia) * Star Voyager (Imagic) Phaser Patrol f...

Was it bundled with a Chess game and Tetris? I only remember seeing Voyeur and 7th Guest on it. As well as Myst (I think?). Like a few other game systems over the years, especially the more unsuccessful ones it was bundled with a number of games as in its lifetime. The one I most vividly remember i...

I found this Promo from the old Phillips CDI, talking about all its "great" games. LOL

Considering it was up against consoles like the PC Engine (£250+ on import) and the NeoGeo (£170 A GAME) at the time, the projected price of around £300 for a Konix base unit and £25 a game (on 3.5" floppy disks) would have been viable Yeah, that's a good point. I never considered what the impo...

This thing didn't stand a chance. There is no way it wouldn't have been too expensive for the market at the time. It might have been cool. But, it would have cost a fortune.
