Who is dreaming? LOL! Maybe a little.
Watching the video seemed like these fellows were common folk. The son admitted having work done to get it running detracts from the originality. Like the snub to certain people that wanted to buy the system.
Seems the major value to this system is ownership. The two fellows are getting star treatment by just owning it. Sell it and it is all over.
If I am wrong on any of my information, sorry. It was said that development of CD games would not have been on par with the Sega CD.
My take is over time developers always get the best out of a system. Was it to late? Not sure. By 1995 some amazing games were still being made for the SNES and Megadrive/Genesis. So if this had started in 1993 and been on market by 1994 it might have still sold.
I would buy a remake if new games were being made. Look at the after market 8 and 16 bit systems. They already play SNES games. Maybe the next FC Twin or Retron will include cd or dvd technology. It would make the X SNES worth more if newly developed games could be played on it.
Sorry for the ramble. Really neat prototype but when the common game player can not enjoy it, for me at least the interest goes out the door. I do have a short attention span.
