I am almost embarrassed to mention that this is probably 1/3 of my 3DO consoles... almost :D

okay I give up!
.........and I thought I was doing well with one loose FZ1 , one TRY and one boxed Goldstar!

I do have a small but nice collection of boxed consoles though - including a Virtual Boy :oops:
Damn that's a nice collection

I know I keep banging on about this, but do vacuum the carpet before you take one of those pictures?

Oh and yeah, before I forget:

WHERE THE F**KING-HELL DID YOU GET 7 BLASTERS?

Cool collection mate. :twisted:

If Bitrate isn't J R Mical, then he lives next door to him and he's robbing RJ's garage.

If only it were that easy. I wish I could put into words how much time I've invested (wasted?) into my 3DO collection. A LOT of my stuff has not come from the popular internet auction sites.
For instance, in the above picture there is a piece that I am particularly proud of which is a factory sealed 3DO Blaster. It has both factory stickers intact on the flaps and is factory sealed in cellophane as well. I found it in some random video game store in Italy which was, at the time, just getting their website up and running.

That has been a LONG time in the making, believe me. I search ALL THE TIME EVERYWHERE and I've been doing that for about 8 years.
I actually have 8 Blaster's, but the last one is not boxed and I currently have it installed and running in a PC.

Please change Bitrate's moniker from "Demi God" to either "3DO horder" or just "God" please. :wink:

3DO experience you are so my kind of gal! :wink:

PS Bitrate if you start running out of space/money because of that baby you aquired/bought off evil bay/squired a few months back feel free to give me some 3DO love (ie blaster , M2 dev kit , boxed TRY...etc) :wink:

I promise I'll look after them :)

Something I've always wondered ..... was there a North American release for the Sanyo? I've always liked the look of those and I would love to own one one day. Unfortunately, I'm nowhere near hardcore enough to fool with making a PAL machine work on my TV. :shock:

Sorry Harmonic Bond but no Sanyo for us. However there is no Sanyo in the UK either, it's Japanese which means NTSC. Good for you.

Hey matty, maybe I should just hold his account hostage with a ransom of some of that hardware. Sound good? :lol:

When I first saw the photo all I could think of is "how?"
But the same thing is happening to me albeit on an infinitely smaller scale. You see the last 3do purchase I made was for a Goldstar and a job lot of games - my collection is now at @150 games and now the ones I want/need are getting harder to find. So I paid $70 AU to simply get 3 of the 20 games and a spare 3do. What the seller forgot to mention was that the Goldstar was still boxed and with its original packaging!
So now I am starting to aquire large excesses in my journey for one perfect collection. I've only been at it for a couple of years now but can see that with the right contacts and plenty of time how it can happen.

only if it's shared :lol: :wink:

Unfortunately, those are probably the two biggest holes in my collection. At one point a while back I had an Alive II system complete but I traded it for a rare piece of M2 hardware. I don't regret the trade, but it is something that I definitely need to get fixed. :D

You hit the nail on the head. Quite a few of the above consoles can be tracked back to various 3DO lot purchases I did in order to obtain certain games and/or other hardware. When you do that for years things start to add up. :wink:

BryWI wrote:Man I saw that picture and laughed out loud. Then I saw the 1/3 comment.

The remaining 2/3 are mostly loose consoles. I think I only have a few more boxed hiding in the back of storage.

So, you got a Alive II boxed ? I never saw a box for it and always wondered if it was released in a box or just in a pice of cardboard without any much stuff written on it.
