Do most of the Korean releases come in the snapper style boxes? If so, I think thats a big plus ... I much prefer them to straight cardboard.

Yes, most of them come in the snapper box style. The Eye of Typhoon and Armageddon are the two instances, that I know of, where the games are not packaged in the snapper box. Also, The Eye of Typhoon has a slightly thinner box similar to Slope Style and Mathemagics, although not quite as thin as those two.

I'm not sure about Battle Blues as I have never seen a box for that game.

It seems as though all of the multi-region Korean 3DO games come in the snapper-style box.

I've always wondered if these are lying around in Korean retro game stores?

To us they are buried treasure, to them... it's probably trash that no one wants.

I used to think that this might be the case as well. A short while back I ran into a couple of guys on another forum who live in Korea. I asked one of the guys to look around for any reto gaming items. He looked for months and months and did not come across much of anything.
He also told me that the mentality over there seems to be one of trashing older/used electronics.

Another guy who I bought some of my Korean 3DO games from also says that retro gaming items are hard to come by over there, especially 3DO items.

I've never been there, so I wouldn't know for sure. However, even using Korean search engines and so forth does not produce good results when looking for retro gaming items.

You must live so that you can sing the praises of 3DO to your fellow French gaming enthusiasts.

Ok, but you must bring 3DO gifts. :wink:

Actually, my wife has an aunt who lives in Torrance. May be time for a reunion ... although I can't imagine I'd have any 3DO gifts that you don't already have at least 5 copies of. :wink:

Small world. My wife grew up in Torrance, and we live just a town over.

Also, I'm working on getting 10 copies of everything, so there is plenty of room left. :wink:

So, how does one get lucky enough to come across two copies of Eye of Typhoon? You must have some kind of Voo Doo Ju Ju Bone going on there, man!
