Saturn was not an overly sizeable threat during 3DO's run in the states w/it's early botched launch, high price tag & small and spotty library. I know Japan was a killer, but 3DO was done by the time Sega hit their groove here. PSX didn't have near as many growing pains ... sad news for 3DO fans. :...

Having had to send back my 360 twice in a little over 3 years I know about its lack of reliability. That being said in my opinion taking into account its recent price I think the 360 is worth it. Sure I hate to be without my system for a while, but its the only way I get to play notable exclusives l...

If I remember correctly (its been a while) there was never anything that they sent to you. However they did have items you could order from the 3DO company like shirts, hats, jackets, and things with the 3DO logo.

I was a member of The 3DO club and I had all of their newsletters. Their newsletters were informative; They would provide info. on upcoming games, developers, and related business news. When I sold my original console I gave the new owner all my 3DO newsletters.

Family games like Twisted and to some extent Return Fire have become a hit with my family. I'm still playing Bladeforce also, I never did get to complete the game when I had my orig...

No, identity wasn't really an issue. It was PRICE that killed it. I totally agree. Everyone who played my 3DO loved it. They just could not afford it. They did lower the price, but by then the market was flooded with 32/64bit machines (Saturn/PS1/and to some extent Jaguar). Had they released the un...

Can someone recommend some import titles

Hey all, I was a big 3DO fan back in the day and as a 2nd time 3DO owner I am starting a new collection. I am very familiar with the domestic releases, but unfamiliar with imports. Can someone recommend some import titles that I should become familiar with. Thanks.
