The LaserActive is a converged device and fourth-generation home video game console capable of playing Laserdiscs, Compact Discs, console games, and LD-G karaoke discs. It was released by Pioneer Corporation in 1993. In addition to LaserActive games, separately sold add-on modules (called “PACs” by Pioneer) accepts Mega Drive/Sega Genesis and PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16 ROM cartridges and CD-ROMs.
Pioneer released the LaserActive model CLD-A100 in Japan on August 20, 1993 at a cost of ¥89,800, and in the United States on September 13, 1993 at a cost of $970. In December 1993 NEC released a cloned version of the system, the NEC PDE-LD1, which was priced identically to the original system and also accepted Pioneer’s PAC modules. Due to its low value for money, the LaserActive was a commercial failure.
The LaserActive has no regional lockout, allowing software from any region to be played on any system.
