Sega first introduced its Sega (Mega)-CD add-on accessory for the Mega Drive on December 1st, 1991 in Japan. Two versions were released over time: one that “sat under the Mega Drive console and loaded CDs via a motorized tray” and “a top-loading CD-ROM drive with a lid.” Video after the jump.

In North America, the Sega CD was considered a failure due to its high price, low sales, few hardware upgrades, and general confusion with the Sega 32X, another Genesis peripheral offered. Due to Sega of America’s lack of support for the Sega CD and 32X, many consumers lost their trust in Sega
