Yeah theres one, CD-ICE, but it doesn't run very well. (IIRC, it only played one game "Rise of the Robots".) It used to have a website but I think has since closed down....(Maybe it's discontinued???)

CD-i = Compact Disc Interactive

Check out The New International CD-i Association for more information on this interesting little niche system.

Apparently, it's still used for corperate training and other multimedia tasks.

Buh, all I know is that it had Zelda, which is what made it noteworthy. (I don't even like Zelda)

For some reason, I couldn't get enough of the infomercials. In fact I can't get enough of any technological infomercial. I even watched that AOL TV one.

Don't worry, you're not alone. I used to watch the CD-I infomercial all the time. Hell, I almost bought one because of it.

Also, I still have the WebTV infomercial on tape - I just had to see it more than once. :D

Oh my gawd, Would the original Dragons lair and others like Space Ace be considered CD-I? In that case, yeech

CDi was awesome. I used ot have one till it was stolen.

The Zelda games were all prettycool except for one problem witht he platform ones -- that being that UP was jump. It made it really aggravating to control. Reminded me of old PC platformers.

There were a lot of other great CDi games like Mystic Midway, etc. I'd kill for an emulator or a cheap system so I could play my old games again. All the systems sell for way over $50 on eBay (at least last time I checked and still had money).

Yeah, I saw that one too. All I can think of is that Voyeur game and the shots they kept showing. I wanted one for a brief period of time, namely the 1/2 hour the commercial was on

I remember playing a game called Escape from Cyber City (i think) on my friends cd-i. It was an FMV game, but was animated and i remember it having some really cool artwork. Maybe it was just cuz i was young and was really only exposed to 8-bit nintendo, but i think it would be cool to be able to play that game again. Apparently lack of support, and too many "I want it NOW!" e-mails persuaded the programmer to stop work on CD-iCE. Shame...
