Sorry for being so scatter brained it is finals week and you know how stressful that can be. What I did was posted on every home theater, dvd, and video forum I could find out there and all the responses were mostly lame, everyone generally tends to think there never were any VCD movies sold in the ...

Have you seen any this summer? I took my nephew to see Thor, now not a fan of Thor at all but the movie was half way decent although not really great either. I am kinda interested in Green Lantern and of course Transformers but I think I will pass on X-Men for a while cuz I don't want to ruin the ot...

I figured it had to be something like that, considering nobody anywere has any information on them from that time, even me all I had was vague memories from a couple of magazine articles and that 1 movie I found at a yard sale once and then sold it latter on.

yeah I bought close to 75 games then I got into emulating on the PC, I spent all that money on NES and Sega games for the Wii and after I sold all my old systems and games. After a while I turned to playing emulators on the PC instead.

So that is it CD-i, 3DO and CD32 then? Probably stupid question but where there ever any stand alone VCD players sold in the US during this time or was it all tied into video games? That was something else that has always bothered me but I never could find any answer to.

it was finding that site that led me here. So question about games then, are most games available on other consoles like Sega CD, 3DO and such or are there any genuine exclusives that are worth checking out?

I guess that was how it always was for me so I forget people did buy new consoles. I got my first NES in 1989, my first Genesis in 1994 and my first SNES in 1996 and my first N64 in 2001. The only video game console I ever bought day one when it was still new was the Wii I stood in line at 7 am at K...

I don't even remember now what I was even asking and I didn't save the link to the forum I was on. I think my main question was were any other movies sold in the US that were not made by Philips or something like that.

I will tell you what, I have a lot more respect for Philips and their CD-i than I do Sony an their demon possessed console of doom. I think the only reason Playstation was a success was their dirty deals and bribes. Don't get me wrong I owned a PSX back in the day but it was second fiddle to my Satu...

Yeah true on missing out on some neat stuff but it always seams that the really cool foreign stuff is always super rare and hard to find. At least it seams that way to me. What's kind of Ironic is US VCD's are the ultra rare hard to find item and the foreign stuff is mostly all I come across. So it ...
