- What is NUON anyway?
NUON was a “DVD plus” technology released by VM Labs in 2000. It added multimedia capabilities to DVD players, including the ability to play games. At the time, it was supported by a variety of manufacturers, including Samsung, RCA, and Toshiba. Many former Atari Corporation employees worked for VM Labs, so it was considered by some to be the “spiritual successor” to Atari gaming consoles. Unfortunately, NUON never really caught on, and had a very limited market life with just a handful of published games before the demise of VM Labs in 2003.
