Hey fellas. I just picked up my very first 3DO with a stack of games (over half are 'adult') on ebay. I'm stoked, since I've wanted one since I was a child, and now I get to have one :)

I'm a video game collector, I'm currently collecting for the following systems:

Atari 2600
Commodore 64
NES
SNES
N64
GameCube
TurboGrafx-16
Sega Master System
Sega Genesis
3DO
And I'm not so much a collector for, but love to play Xbox 360

I am close to acquiring an Atari Jaguar, Jaguar CD, Sega Genesis 1, Genesis 32x and Sega CD, all with a nice stack of games.

I'm always looking to pick up consoles or console variations that I don't have, and the same with games.

My purpose here is to expand my 3DO collection, and catalog and value my collection, and we'll see where it goes from there :)

Nice site you have here. I just hope I can get my 3Do fixed so I have something to talk about.

Hello my name is Danny and I'm in the US - Texas to be exact.

I was one of the original 3DO owners back in the day, purchasing my Real player for $699. I had managed to accumulate a decent collection, but ended up selling it off shortly before the release of Dreamcast.

Thanks to Ebay, I recently purchased another FZ1 player along with WOTW, Gex, Offworld Interceptor, Total Eclipse, Shockwave, and Twisted.

I'm looking forward to amassing another collection, so if you have any 3DO titles for sale make sure to hit me up.

Hello. This is my mandatory introductory post.

You know, so I won't get deleted!

I bought a 3DO two days ago, and found this site because of 3DOkid's article about Jaguar and 3DO homebrew. (I was looking up 3DO homebrew, btw. No accident)

I figure I'd join up here to talk about the 3DO. The thing gets a lot of needless hate, so I figure this 'might' be a good place to talk about it without getting ostracized from the community.

Welcome aboard mate. The 3DO homebrew seen is a little peeky of late but the revelations department we've done pretty good, entirely thanks to the 3DO collectors we have on-board.

Enjoy your stay!

Hi all!

Some of you may know me from ASSEMbler, or maybe somewhere else! I frequent that site mostly, but I like to join the "niche" forums, as well. This seems like a good site, thought I'd join up!

My interest is primarily Saturn, but I do have a fondness for the 3DO, too! I still have mine all boxed from many moons ago!

Hey all,

I'm amazed that the 3DO still has such a dedicated following...I used to have the machine a while ago, sold it, and recently re-acquired it. I'm a collector of a lot of platforms, but I've always had a soft spot for 3DO.

I look forward to interacting with you guys in the coming days. I'm especially interested in discussing and/or acquiring import titles.

Welcome aboard. Like you I am also a 2nd time 3DO owner, well technically I am still waiting on my system. My 1st attempt on Ebay did not go so well. Anyway, looking forward to sharing information on this great platform that was ahead of its time.

Guess I should introduce myself.

I'm Trae, I've been enamored with the 3DO since I first played it at a friend's house in 1994. I didn't get my own until 2001.

I currently do a series of 3DO reviews called 3DO To Go.

That's about it.

Hello, I'm TripHawkins. I just recently purchased another 3DO after having one back in the mid 90's. Thought I'd check out the site.
