    Because the Saturn audio stage is awful. Even a cheap CD player is miles ahead.

    I made it a plan not to actively pursue the NES Classic since a lot of what's available is also on my 3DS (ambassador) but Target received new stock today so I picked one up. The store also has a bunch of the new Sonic game but they wouldn't sell it and when I asked why would it be on display if it could not be purchased, the worker looked at me as if I was Tri-Klops.

    CD (and SACD) is alive and well in the classical scene. I was referring to the Saturnís era in my post however.

    Plenty do. Just like plenty of people still, buy LPs and brand new turntables. I have a stereo I bought only a couple years ago. I play Videogame OST on it and they are released on CD. My most recent one came out in May with Xenoblade2.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    I was thinking of standalone CD players. There probably hasn't been one since 2007.

    Ok I see theres still a niche market for them.

    But even stuff like the PS4 dropped CD support. I support 4K Blu-Rays but it doesn't matter if CDs go the way of the dodo with VHS.

    However, I thought it was way better than it had any right to be ... especially after Godzilla Ď98. It was probably much more high-brow than it should have been. I think Kong of Skull Island nailed it.
    I love the 1998 Godzilla film.

    On a related note, anyone looking forward to Kong v Godzilla (or whatever they're calling it)?

    What? The PS4 doesn't play audio CDs (as I shake my head) because they don't want to support them? As if the optical drive was unable to keep up with or it was hard to keep the driver software in the PS OS? Wow

    I thought that's what Rampage was. Ha-ha
    I myself didn't realize until recently that Kong Skull Island was going to be apart of the Godzilla franchise as I was sitting through the entire credits and saw the teaser at the very end waiting for the next movie to start. Can't say I liked Skull Island at first watch?

    If you care about CD players, start hitting thrift stores for them. I got an HDMI-capable Sony receiver for ten dollars last year, and it works perfectly. I keep seeing Sony, Sanyo, and other CD player decks for a pittance, but sometimes I see them hipster-priced, too. No, I've never seen a $4 CDi, like Clint did. Nothing that good ever shows up in the midwest.
