Technical Information

Release Date


The first model Sega CD had a front tray-loaded CD drive, and connected to the original model Genesis on the underside of the unit. The second model was designed to attach sideways to the second model Genesis, and used a top-loading 'clamshell' style CD drive. Although each model Sega CD was designed to connect to a different model Genesis, they are cross-compatible (although not as asthetically pleasing)
