View Full Version : Sega CDX lovin'

Walked into my local Cash Converters today (retail-looking pawn shop) and lo and behold, what do I see but a mint condition Sega CDX system, the all-in-one Genesis and Sega-CD combo unit. It was just sitting on the shelf, waiting for me to grab it, for a mere $29.99! These easily go for $100+ on eBay, so I was naturally ecstatic to happen upon this little gem.

I'll probably look into getting an Xeye next. Does anyone else here own both the CDX and the Xeye? I imagine the Xeye is cool too, but just because the CDX is so small, yet packs so much retro power, it's my current favorite of all my Sega hardware!

If I saw one cheap, I'd buy it and later sell it for a profit.

I'll definitely be on the lookout for more of these, but I couldn't possibly sell my only one. I'm well on my way towards collecting all the original Sega-CD related games and hardware, so this CDX will be a nice addition!

I'd love to own either of them. Given a choice, I'd take the X'eye first just because it's more obscure (and I'm a Game Snob), but either of them would be perfect for me.

I own both, because I'm ultra cool.

Why not keep it?

Ok, maybe if I was really impressed with the unit then I'd keep it, that is a big maybe. Really, I have two nice Sega CD systems, a Model 1 and 2 in pretty damn good condition.

I think if you got one you'd be impressed. It's so compact, not much bigger than a cd itself! It seemed to run a bit smoother than my Model 1...maybe it has a faster drive.

Hey, that was a great find! Did you get any rare Sega CD games in that lot or just common ones? The few places I visit locally haven't had much lately, but I did recently get Streets of Rage 2, SFII:CE, and TMNT: Hyperstone Heist all boxed and complete for $1 each!

Metalshadow your post does not make any sense. A pronoun combined with an interjection as the only words in a sentence means nothing is not acceptable in the English language.

i just bought a cdx just for the hell of it. Was a bit pricey though 116US with 14 games, 2 first party sega controllers. Games include Aladin, Altered Beast, Decapattack, Flashback, Gargoyles, Golden Axe, King of the Monsters 2, Lion King, Rocket Knight Adventures, Sonic 2, Sonic & Knuckles, Sub Terrania W/ Box + Instructions, X-Men 2 + Instructions, and Dragons Lair for Sega CD.

How did I make out? Fair? Poorly?

That's certainly not horrible or anything.

Gee, THAT was reassuring. ;)

I think you did alright, it's a decent sized haul and the CDX's I see are usually $80+ anyway. I probably wouldn't have gone over $100 for it, but it's not like $116 is a huge deal.

I included the shipping price in the total. It was $16 for shipping.
