The Philips CD-i was a multimedia device released in 1991. It featured some game software on it, though not as much as your typical home console. The device is also notable for soiling the Zelda series with three poorly made games. The CD-i also ruined the Mario series with Hotel Mario game. These games were not developed by Nintendo and series creator Shigeru Miyamoto had no input in their creation but Nintendo did give them permission to use them.
