Shootout at Old Tucson
Posted: Sun May 12, 2013 9:19 pm
Interesting and mega rare Shootout at Old Tucson just came up on eBay. Is this something even bitrate doesn't own??
I've never seen it on eBay before, would be nice to see some photos of the internal workings of this thing.
Pick up only, so that's me out then!

Oh wow! I didn't know they used the 3DO for arcade games.

Wow. Looks pretty cool.
Looks like they could use the money for a camera. And the missing 90 degree's.

How come the video quality of this game in the arcade is much better than the home ports from ALG?

I don't know for sure, but perhaps this "arcade-based" 3DO system had slightly better hardware (similar to the co-Jag arcade architecture)? Or, the company was able to tap into the full potential of the platform, since they didn't technically have to make the game compatible on each model of 3DO (if I remember reading here correctly, there were or may have been performance differences between each 3DO system, but games were made to work with a specific standard or limitation in mind so they would run the same way on each model of 3DO system? If I am wrong, some please correct me

I own a 3do arcade setup and the cds
of tucson and mad dog 2,i have also dumped
them for the scene.
It is indeed very rare to find a complete
cab,if i was in usa i would take it...
The arcade 3do console is a retail one but
with a different bios. It didnt make it in
the arcades cause it needs a lot of time

Plus, the 3DO laser wore out very quickly in an arcade environment. We discussed this game before. Nice to see the original cabinet.
