Commodore Amiga CD32

The Commodore Amiga CD32 was basically an Amiga 1200 computer with a CD slapped on and made into a console. The system had a short shelf life; it was brought to market in September 1993 and Commodore filed for bankruptcy in April 1994. It was claimed that the CD32 was the first 32 bit CD console, however it actually wasn’t, there was an obscure Japanese only system, although that was only available in Japan. The CD32 games were basically Amiga computer games, ie DOS ports from what i’ve seen; there are some good titles on the system worth playing.

The CD32 has a Sony CXA video chip that can be tapped off for RGB quite easily, using pins 11, 21, 22, 23
