Newest Addition To Console Collection

I recently stumbled across a 3DO game system at a local thrift shop. My friend works at two thrifts shops and has some of the coolest toys and collectables you could ever imagine, all of which he obtained through working at his job. Some of his Akira toys are still in the original packaging. While he digs the toys and the collectables, I’m more partial to old gaming. I told him to keep his eye open for old gaming consoles, and he came across this and didn’t even know what it was. Thanks to our friendship, and his selling it to me without looking up the price, I was able to obtain this system for 20 bucks. That’s right folks, Andrew Jackson bought me this console that originally sold for 700 big ones. Even today the system sells for several hundred dollars. It is in near mint condition and came with all the various cables, Road Rash, and a controller. This bad boy is packing 32bits of power! When this console originally came out, it was the most powerful gaming console. Unfortunately the system was just too damn expensive and lacked the proper catalog of games. I think if it had been better priced and had more software support, it could have done quite well. Although this has nothing to do with Mac Emulators, it was a great find and I just had to share it. Cheers!

About Mac Emulators
I am an Old School gamer with roots in emulation and gaming. I love video games, but mostly I love the old ones from our past. Emulation is a way to experience all these old games on your personal computer.
