Nice "Just the facts" info...
Negative: 3DO Zone not mentioned, as german RETRO did with my M2 article.

No mention of the IMSA racing game either. Meh.

It is a little odd to have the Konami M2 arcade games take up half of the picture allotment without showing anything from IMSA.

Well, clearly the Assembler forums know better than us. :roll:

M2 information is slowly deteriorating into this kinda stuff.
just the trend as it gets older and less interesting.

I disagree with this completely.

More information, more software, and more hardware is out there and understood than at any point in the last eleven years that I've been involved. Three years ago people still were not sure if the kiosks would even play M2 media.
I would not say that M2 information is deteriorating at all. Quite the contrary.

I also do not think that it is becoming less interesting. The number of people spending big money on M2 hardware is equal to or greater than it has been for years.
FZ-35's used to sit on Ebay for $25 back in 2003 and 2004. Now they command hundreds of dollars (up to $700 and $800)

This is also the third article covering M2 I've seen in a magazine in the last year and a half.

If there was a downward trend in interest as you suggest at least some of the above, if not all, would be negatively impacted.

I don't think it's time to declare a waning interest in M2 just because an article may be somewhat lacking.

I don't understand this. I also told the director of the RETRO magazine in the beginning of 2011 to quote 3DO Zone in my article. Did not happen. But they cannot take our pioneer work.

Thats a well worded reply bitrate. You should be writing M2 articles. I agree w/all that you said btw.

I dunno, but I can tell you I'm becoming less interested every time I hear something. Maybe when someone finds the warehouse holding all the FZ-21S1s I'll get excited again.

We need to find an FZ-21S1 for 3DO Experience guys. She has been looking for a long time (I think Pitsunami, too).
