The XaviXPORT is a fitness-based home video game console developed by Japanese company SSD COMPANY LIMITED and released in the United States in 2004[2][3] during the sixth generation of video game consoles. The console uses cartridges and wireless controllers. The controllers are shaped like sports equipment (such as baseball bats or tennis racquets), with users actions represented on the television screen through the use of sensors in the controllers. The MSRP for the XaviXPORT was USD $79.99 at launch[2]. However, the system has been officially sold as low as $19.99 bundled with tennis or bowling in their 2013 Spring Cleaning sale. [4] In 2013, Xavix's social media sites went silent, but the ecommerce site remained up until 2017 when the official domain expired. [1]

Hardware[edit]

The XaviXPORT was developed by eight engineers who worked on the Nintendo Entertainment System. [5] The processors were built into the games themselves with the more basic games using the same 8-bit 6502 CPU as the NES. More advanced games were released using the 16-bit 65816 CPU, the same CPU that the Super Nintendo's CPU, the Ricoh 5A22, was based on.
