No, I'm serious, I read somewhere that Panasonic was designing the M2, because 3DO gave them rights to it. It was supposedly going to compete with the Dreamcast, GameCube, Xbox, PS2, but was canceled?


Here's where: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panasonic_M2

Perhaps I should stop relying on Wikipedia (and ClassicGaming, which also said the M2 was canceled) for my information?

You see! What's up? I asked an honest question, because I was confused and I get pics like "facepalm" and replies like "are you stoned".
