The LaserActive by Pioneer was perhaps the most expensive gaming console ever at launch. The console cost $1,000 and required additional modules which cost an extra $600 each to play certain types of games. Games ran on LaserDiscs and the formats were Mega LD discs by SEGA and LD-ROM2 by NEC. The modules were also backwards compatible with Genesis and SEGA CD games on the SEGA module, and TurboGrafx-16 and TurboGrafx-CD games on the NEC module.
