Gaming Console
    (March 1993-1996)
    Created by Trip Hawkins, RJ Mical and Dave Needle
    Owned by Matsushita, AT&T, Time Warner, MCA, Electronic Arts, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and the New Technologies Group
    Seven companies partnered up for this.
    They claimed to be 'The most advanced video game system in the universe.'
    The name was made to rhyme with audio and video.
    It was so pricey that it was out of the range of most game players.
    Reviewers claimed that not only were the best games produced for it, but also the worst games ever.
    A 64 bit upgrade was promised but never delivered.
    Creator Trip Hawkins boasted 'It will be more stimulating to the human mind than any new technology since printing.'
    Using Sega controllers on the system could both damage the controllers and the system.
    Some users purchased the unit for above the retail price on the black market.
    They replaced the cartridge system with the much larger capacity (¾ of a gig) CD.
    The system supported up to eight players.
    It was the first mass marketed game system to have internal memory to store high scores.
    The system featured expansion ports, an attempt to keep the machine from becoming obsolete.
    There were tons of games produced for this system.
    It was the first game machine that displayed video and play audio CDs.
    Creator Trip Hawkins founded Electronic Arts.
    Most of the software was developed on Macintosh computers.
    The software contained a rating system.
    There were well over 500 companies creating software for it.
