ok so cd-i

It can play video games, edutainment software, Video CD, Photo CD, Karaoke CD, and Audio CD correct? What about MP3 can it decode MP3 at all with or without an upgrade, add on, or expansion? Also are there any CD formats I am missing that it can or can't play?

so this scart thing do they make a converter for other stuff like Component or DVI or is it exclusive to PAL? For old games and stuff RCA is usually good enough but considering my primary interest is movies I would like S-video at the very least if possible.

No I was not trying to whine I was providing an alternative perspective, I could have worded things differently but the truth remains that from someone not particularly familiar with this stuff it appears as though everyone else is doing just as much work for nothing I meant no disrespect to you per...

yeah my impressions of 32x were all from a while back, I sold my console in 2006 I think it was so I could be remembering the names wrong. I did download the emulator and some roms I missed and I don't see much improvement over the Genesis version of VR but that could be because the game did not age...

yeah I notice ebay is not the place to buy this stuff. I live way out in the country in Nebraska a few miles from the KS border so my local market is a long drive not really worth it to bargain hunt for stuff. One of the reasons why I have not looked too hard for this stuff. BUT since my main reason...

yeah I wrote a review of his show on my blog where I mention just that. I still watch just because lets face it I am generally considered a nerd and it is entertaining even if over the top. I like his show probably for similar reasons why I love Kevin Smith movies so much, especially Mallrats. The o...

I am sorry but I disagree entirely as far as I can tell this is the ONLY emulator in existence where someone is charging money for it period. This isn't even a well sought after system. The author talks about how he wants to get something for his coding, what about the authors of nesterj, Fusion, pr...

Just Watched AVGN review of CD-i

Ok so I know he is a character and is often over dramatic so I don't really make any judgments based on his review alone but I do have to say that Hotel Mario game sure does actually look pretty entertaining, kind of reminds me of Wrecking Crew but better. The first two Zelda games looked like crap ...

ok well I did some ebay searching and DAMN those things are expensive even now and used. I think I am going to have to think long and hard before I drop that kind of cash on basically a curiosity. At least with 3DO I found a few cheap models but I image they lack the digital card so might have to ho...

well if you read the list it also does not mention CD-i or 3DO as consoles that play back VCD and instead talks about Sega CD and Playstation consoles I think the article has some bias as well as misinformation. Wikipeida also said Sonic the Hedgehog was an Atari Jaguar game among countless other li...

Yeah but Wikipedia is wrong, Sega CD did not play VCD, I know I had one and I could never get any movies to play back on it ever. I even had the 32X to go with it and never found anything that would allow playback on Sega CD. Because of that and other experiences with wikipedia I don't trust their i...
