The Sega CD, originally released as the Mega-CD in most regions outside of North America, is an add-on device for the Sega Genesis video game console, designed and produced by Sega. It was released in Japan in 1991, North America in 1992 and in PAL regions in 1993. The device adds a CD-ROM drive to the console, allowing the user to play CD-based games and providing additional hardware functionality. It can also play audio CDs and CD+G discs. While the add-on did contain a faster central processing unit than the Genesis, as well as some enhanced graphics capabilities, the main focus of the device was to expand the size of games. Known for several games such as Sonic the Hedgehog CD and for the controversy of violent video games including Night Trap, the Sega CD sold 2.24 million units worldwide. It was officially discontinued in 1996.
