Found one of these babies hidden up on a shelf at a Kmart. When I climbed up and took it to the register it run up at $15 :)
Followed by a run to EB and snagging Doom and NFL quarterback club for $2.99 each I was set down the 32bit path.
Speaking of doom this was doomed from the start since the Sony Playstation was already in the works when it came out. Only the price made it stand out. But as with the SegaCD the lack of software titles kept it from catching on. It did add some impressive power to the Genesis. Much like a system32 board from the arcade side.
It was the cheapest way to play Doom at the time :)
