Now that we’re into the final week of CD-i month, we know that many of you must be eager to get your hands on the CD-i Zelda games and own them for yourself. Well, never fear! We wouldn’t tease you with pieces of CD-i goodness all month without also showing you where you can buy them.
So, where exactly can you buy a Philips CD-i and the infamous Zelda games almost 20 years after they were released? Hit the jump and find out.
Ebay of course! In fact, not only are people selling old CD-i consoles on there, there are even businesses refurbishing them, so you know that your new old console will work when you receive it.
Daily Deals Electronics Shop is one such seller. They have a package consisting of a refurbished CD-i, the gamepad controller and 12 games, including Link: The Faces of Evil and Hotel Mario for $355. They also have a couple of refurbished CD-i 220 consoles, one for $195 and one for $225. They’re also selling a portable CD-i along with 8 games, although the games aren’t listed. Their full list of consoles can be viewed at their store.
dorwena777 also specializes in renewed CD-i consoles. They have a CD-i with a wired controller for $245 and one with the gamepad controller for $249. Check out their entire list of items to see what other CD-i gear they have.
The games are considered to be rare, but there are a few copies floating around right now. Someone is even selling Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon together for $230, and this would be my pick for someone wanting to start a CD-i Zelda collection.
There’s a copy of Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon that has never been played selling for $135. There are a few more copies currently listed on eBay for between $300-$800, and one person is even trying to sell a copy for $17,000. Be quick with this one as it’s currently on sale from its original price of $20,000.
Zelda’s Adventure is the rarer of the three games. There’s currently only one copy listed, which is currently at $102, but it has 9 bids so far.
