What "issue" are you refering to? The issue that BryWI has with his PS1 or the issue of the Edge magazine?

It's not that complicated. By stealing exclusive footage or anything that contains even the slightest sign of creative work of the person who did the video (which would include any gameplay footage), he's violating copyrights. But with simple gameplay footage, that's just YOU copying an already copy...

Re: The saddest list ever...unreleased 3do games.

I highly doubt that. I never heard of any plans for that, and i collect any little bit of information about Doom since ages. Apparently, you didn't collect that hard, as that information is from the original design document, which is, at least one version, available for ages. ;) Back then, the cuts...

Even the original PC release was to have cutscenes, but they were dropped at some point. Seeing how bad the 3DO version is, I don't think some FMVs would have saved the game anyway.

About 7 times as powerful as the PS1 and about 3 times as powerful as N64. No way for it to compete with the DC, however.

In fairness to Panasonic it isn't as good looking as the FZ-1 That's because this was not the final design for the M2. The final design was never revealed (cf. NextGen, Oct. 1996). And when Matsushita finally produced the units in 1998, they kept using that case design, as they had a patent on it (...

Monitoring whether the system is mains-powered or not. The battery is not constantly used to power the SRAM, only when the unit is turned off.

But the fact that I've never known a 3DO to lose its data due to a dead battery strongly implies that it does not use battery backed up SRAM and uses some other form of NVRAM.
The battery simply lasts very long. I've heard about a couple of 3DOs that could no longer keep save games.

Again, NVRAM is not a technology, it only means "RAM that keeps its data when the system no longer run on mains". How this is achieved is not important. NVRAM can be flash memory these days, but also SRAM backed up by a battery. And that is exactly what it is in the 3DO, and also in the Sega Saturn,...

NVRAM only means non-volatile RAM. It doesn't say anything about the technology behind. You probably think of flash memory, but that wasn't used back then. The 3DO's NVRAM is simply implemented as conventional RAM with a backup battery.
