cdi collection including unreleased hardware and games

Anything relating to CD-i can be discussed in this forum. From the multiple hardware iterations of the system to the sofware including games, reference, music and Video CDs. Maybe you hold an interest in Philips Media and the many development houses set up to cater for CD-i if so then this is the forum.

cdi collection including unreleased hardware and games

Post by BeaglePuss » Sun May 01, 2011 4:22 pm

Hello everyone!

I am new to the cdi scene, but have been part of vintage game collecting for some time now. I mostly collect prototype material for the NES, but have amassed a fairly broad collection over the years.

I just came into a massive lot of cdi material including prototype controllers, betas, and at least one unreleased game. Here are some pictures of what I've received:


The light gun is actually a Sega Justifier which was modified for the cde and used as a prototype/template for the peacekeeper. The roller controller was a prototype controller that never made it into production. I also have a prototype MPEG card and at least one other prototype controller. I will be more pictures including some "Secret Name of Ra" screen shots later today.

I have played a little of the Secret Name of Ra, and it appears to be fairly polished if not complete. I will definitely be posting some screen shots later tonight capturing some gameplay.
