Should have asked him if anything came up on the TV (provided he hooked it to a television). 3DO systems have a changing splash screen that plays when there is no disc in the system. Anyway, I think it will probably be fine. I haven't heard much from people here about FZ-10 systems just outright dying frequently. I could be wrong.

Yeah I sure hope it works!
It came with no games, but I saw a reveiw of it and the guy said that you can download ISO games on a computer, burn them on a disc and play them on a 3DO? What's that about?

The 3DO can play backups, yes. Outside of that, we don't talk about that here.

Thanks, I fou d one of those adapters in my basement, now it'll work when I get it! There was one downside to this though, the guy is taking forever to ship. He's using us parcel post, not FedEx or ups, which is a bit cheaper. Its coming from Texas, but the estimated deliver time is like 10 days! How am I gonna survive for all that time waiting for a 3DO?!?!? :?

Yeah I found flying nightmares for 9.95, 2 controllers for 15$, hopefully they'll come sooner than the 3DO. (I love airplanes as much as the 3DO) :wink:

Okay, so I am wondering where the heck my 3do is. I ask the guy, it's may 11th, where's my 3do?!?!? Here's the response:
Howdy,

I'm sorry for the late message! Right when you purchased this item I was in a bad accident afterward. An Idiot ran me off the road trying to pass me. I was driving my mg midget:( love that thing and it was my first car. I'm having a hard time shipping items so i ship them by limping with a package a few miles to the post office. Not too much fun but I did get your package out today. Thank you for your patience,
(blocked by SOPA)

Any way, he said that he had shipped it on the 26 th of April but ow he says he only got it in on the 10th?!?!? I'm really angry. However I am happy that I got an n64 with 2 controllers and 6 games for 35$.

Shit does happen. If he really has been in an accident, 14 days can be perfectly reasonable. Regardless, i hope you get your 3DO soon. I hate waiting too.

Yeah, but the thing that pisses me off is that he said he shipped it on the 26th of April.

3DO came with a Naki controller which I like because there is a switch on the back that lets you use p as a button in sf2. The only thing is the shoulder button sticks, I'm gonna try to fix it.
