I usually stick to the Neo Geo and Saturn for fighting games but have a few on other consoles too! I like Street Fighter 4 on my xbox 360....BUT....the 360 controllers are absolute crap for this game! The clunky D-pad is horrible and i only realised this after buying Street Fighter 4!! I looked into...

It looks like a 3DO on life support after being stamped on by the sega saturn and playstation.... but of course it's not! It's another piece of interesting hackery :D

Yes it was definitely the hefty price tag that made the majority of people look the other way! and then the saturn and especially the playstation banged the final nails into the 3DO's coffin :(

Just get some tweezers and pull the piece of paper out.... And if that fails then the controller port pins could be fractured/broken! This has happened a couple of times with me over the years with megadrives and amiga's... It can happen to pretty much any console that uses those old dodgy pin ports.

Both US and Jap NTSC systems run from a 110V mains supply. I on the other hand have to use those ugly, bulky "step-down" converters to run NTSC machines in the UK (220~240V).

Is there such thing as a "step-up" converter for running PAL equipment in NTSC territories??

So if i got a Jap 3DO then would all storage manager CD's display in japanese? even if i got the US or UK CD version?

Also does this mean that UK and US games will display in Japanese on a Jap system? My Jap Neo Geo did this when a US or UK game was inserted :roll: until i fitted a switch :D
