I am currently funding my next film "Almost There - Stories from the American Road" on Kickstarter, and of course need all the help / word o...

I had a 3DO when they first came out, but that's just cause I was an only child, and my parents were doing pretty well back then. It also helped my dad was a tech junkie in the 90's haha

but yeah. Even TODAY, as an adult, I look at $700 as a huge amount of cash.

Apparently Playdom (never heard of them) acquired Acclaim, so they may be the end owners of anything Killing Time related

I think, given the fact there are SO MANY different versions of packaging for 3DO titles, (seven if you include titles that came in jewel cases only) the 3DO wins for "most revisions to packaging" of any console I can think of.

This is just a guess, but may be correct I assume the two cables are neutral and live, and the 3rd one on the NTSC may be ground. Although the 3do plug for the wall does not have the ground post, so I could be off. But thats my guess, one wire is your live, one is your neutral, and the 3rd is ground...

I've been jealous of the translation patch Policenauts got for the PS1 version. I really dont want to mod my PS2 to play backups, and since I own Policenauts for the 3DO, I'd love a patched version for it. So whats really stopping us?
