The Halcyon is a LaserDisc-based, third-generation home video game console produced by RDI Video Systems.

The system was planned to be released in January 1985, priced at US$2500 (equivalent to over $6000 in 2020). This would have made it the most expensive console of all time. However, it does not appear that it ever reached retailers, and less than a dozen prototype units exist. Only two games for it were completed: Raiders vs. Chargers (released in arcades by Bally Midway as NFL Football) and Thayer's Quest (released in arcades by RDI, then for other systems by Interplay as Kingdom: The Far Reaches).
