WARP Weirdness

Ok, so I am in the process of going through my Japanese imports for the 3DO. In sorting through the imports it is quite common to come across games that have jewel cases that are thick and heavy due to a large number of inserts/manuals/mail-in cards/etc. I happened upon the game Short Warp by WARP a...

The unit in the picture I picked up new at a mom and pop store about 5 years ago. I believe I have another one boxed away that I purchased on Ebay probably two years ago.

Hello,
I can understand your desire to repair your unit. However, to tell the truth, you will be much better served by simply purchasing a functioning unit at auction or from an on-line store.

I haven't had a chance to look into the specifics of the control pads on 3DO vs. Genesis, but from what I do know they will not work interchangeably on the two machines. Additionally, you run the risk of damaging the 3DO if you try to use Genesis pads on it. The reason is that the 3DO uses a serial ...

Great pictures bitrate. In Germany: The Blaster with Joypad and Software: 800 German Mark (400 € / GBP 585 / $303) Sounds like Germany may have gotten a little bit of a break on the cost. Of course, it's all relative to when it was released in Germany. If it had released at that price in the US it ...

I tend to gravitate more toward turn-based RPG's. My favorite RPG's are Dragon Warrior 1-4. The amount of crap they stuffed into an 8-bit cart in Dragon Warrior 4 is amazing. On the 3DO I also loved Guardian War, and of course Lucienne's Quest. I haven't completed either of these, but I will as soon...

When it debuted it cost $399, which I believe was the same price as the then marked down consoles.

It was said to allow 3DO to expand into the PC market and it allowed Creative to offer an advanced gaming platform to their then extensive installed base of Creative CD-ROM drives.

I'm playing a little more now than I was before. This might just be a coincidence though as I am currently in the middle of sorting out my 3DO collection.
One thing is for sure though, it is really nice to have a place to discuss the 3DO and all of its games.
