The 3DO was a failed video game console back in 1994. It used CDs and was one of the most powerful consoles in it's day. However it was also super expensive.
It was also one of the rare instances where multiple companies made the same system. Panasonic sold the most of them.
Though companies like Gold Star also sold some.
It received ports like Alone in the Dark.
Gex also showed up.
The Need for Speed started the Need For Speed series right here on 3DO.
