The big questions to help me buy the best 3DO

Ok, so I'm going to be finally getting back into 3DO in a couple of months & I turn to you all for some advice. I've already asked elsewhere what's the best way to connect a 3DO to a HDTV which doesn't have S:Video (my bad, never thought about it when I bought it) in the How Do You 3DO thread. But n...

Re: What's your 3DO story?

Substitute "rambling on" for waffling, basically sorry for going on and on :)

Yeah, I loved the FZ-10 & because it was the one I had all the way back then I assumed I'd sell the FZ-1 but once I had one... no way. It's beautiful! And even today it still looks awesome & very modern.

Re: A Cry For Help

Brilliant news! Their last feature, while handy for collecting, was very negative and made it sound like there were no good games and the whole idea was rubbished. Will be great to read something setting the record straight! :D

Re: What's your 3DO story?

I can't remember exactly what got me interested in 3DO, it may have been a Channel 4 Equinox programme on videogaming, which had some amazing footage of Madden and Road Rash. I started collecting Edge for its first year but once Playstation was announced all other systems may as well have been dropp...

Re: Best picture quality? How do you 3DO?

I've got a LG 42" HDTV (42LS3450 if anyone's interested) & it doesn't have a S-Video input :( That's the way I used to use my 3DO a couple of years ago (before I sold it to clear debts) on my old SD TV & it was a really good picture. This new HD TV has RGB, regular aerial, 2 HDMIs, & Y Pb Pr L R. Wh...

Re: Got my Sanyo 3DO today! (now with pictures)

Oh.

Word.

Now that is one sexy unit.

I'm just starting out again and while I'm hoping to collect all 3DO machines I know that one will probably cost mega bucks, so congratulations on tracking one down at that price, even with all that additional cost!

Took ages but I eventually found some info on the Jurassic Park game I was referring to and after all that it wasn't the Commodore Amiga CD32 after all, it was the Sega Mega CD version.

His movie-making skills are still fantastic, the actual ship sinking hour of Titanic and Avatar prove that to me.

Been selling a lot of stuff recently and if starting price is under £1 it's free to put on, so always put a starting price of 99p. Hasn't stopped me getting top money for some things though :) Plus for 3DO games there's some Buy It Now items but plenty of auctions starting out that low anyway.
