bitrate Posted October 2, 2011 Share Posted October 2, 2011 (edited) Well, here it is. Eleven years of collecting 3DO and 3DO-M2. These pictures represent about 97-98% of the collection. The only things I didn't include in the pictures are a couple of Konami M2 arcade units, a 3DO dev station and a handful of PAL titles. They are stuck in a storage locker and will have to be pulled out later. I collect for other systems, but 3DO and M2 are by far the systems that I am most passionate about. A lot of what is pictured below I found to be extremely difficult to locate. Some of the items took more than ten years of active searching. The pictures are more or less grouped together in categories to make searching a little easier. For larger images, just click on the respective smaller resolution picture. Anyway, I hope you can all enjoy the following trip back to the mid-1990's from the perspective of an often dismissed gaming system.

These were used by developers to debug games and are therefore able to run unsigned code: (Click on images) Edited February 12, 2012 by bitrate 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
