The Pioneer company is most well known in the stereo market. Back in 1993 they also tested the video game market with the release of the Pioneer LaserActive. The system went on sale on September 13th, 1993 and cost $970. The most notable feature of the system was the number of add-on modules that could be connected to the system.
The most popular add-on for the system was the Sega PAC which allowed owners to play Sega-CD and Genesis games. It cost $600 and came with a Genesis controllers with a Gold Pioneer Logo.
Other add-ons included the Karaoke PAC which, for $350 allowed the ability to play karaoke titles and came with two microphones. The Computer Interface PAC allowed the system to be controlled by computer based programs. It came with a 33 button infrared remote. The LaserActive 3D goggles allowed players to play 3D games and was compatible with the Sega Master System.
There was a total of 19 games available for the system here in the United States. Needless to say the system didn’t sell very well.
