Developed and manufactured by Japan's SSD Company, the XavixPORT is a small console designed for use with a variety of physically interactive, first-party controller-and-game bundles. The North American launch titles for the system are sports-based, and feature controllers shaped like athletic equipment which players use to participate in the on-screen games.
The XaviX Tennis cartridge, for example, comes with two wireless, racquet-shaped controllers; players hit the on-screen tennis ball back and forth by actually swinging their racquets with the appropriate timing and direction. XaviX Bowling features a round, grapefruit-sized controller (complete with finger holes). Players hold the controller in their hand and swing their arm, as if throwing a real bowling ball, in order to bowl on the TV screen.
Unlike most console systems, the main processors for XaviX games are in the game cartridges, instead of the console itself. This allows the processors to be custom designed for each different application. The XaviXPORT communicates with the various XaviX controllers using infra-red signals.
The XaviXPORT console comes with an AC power adaptor and an AV cable that allows it to be easily connected through the RCA-style inputs on a television set or VCR. At launch, the console had a manufacturer's suggested retail price of 79.99 dollars. Game and controller packages were sold separately, for around 50 dollars each. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
