An Awesome Slice of History!

Post by 3DO Si » Wed Aug 06, 2014 11:40 am

Hi all, well I managed to get my hands on a 3DO Press Kit which was given out at a pre-launch event for the 3DO back in 1993. This thing is absolutely awesome, each page is printed on different paper, some printed on computer, some printed on typewriter. The information included is excellent too, it really is an all round awesome piece of 3DO history and it's definitely one of my favourite pieces in my collection.

Anyway, I hope I'm not breaking any rules (please let me know if I am and I'll remove it) but I've scanned in the complete Press Kit for you to enjoy, if you're a 3DO fan it's essential reading, if you're just a retro console fan it's definitely worth a read just to see some old names from gaming yesteryear!
