The relatively rare glory of the Sega CDX

Sega CDXSega CD X boxThe Sega CDX (or Multi-Mega outside the US) was a brilliant portable little gaming gadget, that managed to combine a fully working Sega Genesis (or, well, MegaDrive), a Sega (Mega) CD and a complete and quite advanced potable CD player with a hefty price tag. Of course, it flopped and is now quite a rarity. You can find out more about it here, here and/or here.

What's more, and provided you are willing to spend a few hundred dollars (perhaps even less), there's a lovely US only complete Sega CDX auction @ eBay. The console seems to be in mint condition, comes packed in its original & complete box, with a manual, carrying case, 6-button joypad, all cables and 5 games that include Sonic CD and Lunar: The Silver Star.


  1. I own one of these (well the European version called the Multi-Mega) but it cannot run CDs properly sadly. At the moment though I have some guy looking to see if he can fix it for me. =)

  2. Now, that truly is a shame, even though you can actually run them Sega CDs on your PC via emulation. BTW, nice seeing you around these places Gagaman. Cheers!
