Cool, now you just need an old 486 to install that into.

Wow, that was fast shipping. They weren't joking when they said 3-5 days. :shock:

I'm just glad everything arrived safely. Now we need to get that beast up and running. :wink:

And to put a twist on that--how many of those 5,000 are still in existence today? :)

Me neither until yesterday. It's massive. It's twice as long as any modern graphics card.

LOL we aren't gonna see 3DO kid for a few weeks lol.

That thing looks roughly the size of the old Quantum3D Obsidian2 X-16 SLI Voodoo 3DFX video card. Anyone remember that huge beast? I had a huge pc case because of that thing.

What do you use it for, anyway? I looked it up in a 3DO FAQ, but it doesn't explain what its actual function is.

It is a complete 3DO console on a PC card.

Wow, that's crazy. Did the 3DO company actually license that thing?

I'm late to the party on this, but really nice Kid. Finally got one. That's one more than I have though, so congrats!
This is a stick up! Put all of your 3DO games in the bag and nobody gets hurt!

I always thought they were vaporware with only a couple prototypes if anything, that's cool! Now I must find one! (not really, I hate playing games on PC's, even if it is a real 3DO, I like kicking back on the couch with a controller and playing on my 150" projection screen! FZ-1 RULES!)
