CDTV is a home console released by Commodore in 1991. The system was actually a multimedia system with numerous capabilities like gaming, video playback, audio capabilities, even printing capabilities. The design of the CDTV could be described more like a stereo. The CDTV is essentially a Commodore Amiga 500 home computer with a CD-ROM drive and remote control. Because CDTV is one of the most expensive gaming systems ever released and because a lot of people expected a CD-ROM add-on for Amiga's personal computer, which eventually came in Amiga A570, CDTV was a commercial failure and discontinued in 1993. Plans for a CDTV II were cancelled also in favor of Amiga CD32.
