No Saturn Wipeout 2097?
Also, why does your Wipeout Pure look completely different to mine?

LOL, :lol: I hope you didn't think I was having a dig at you, I was saying that I'd go pretty far for a collection like that! Kidding of course :wink:

If my wife was half as understanding as your GF, I'd consider myself extremely lucky. Great collection, you should be proud. :D

Good God people, that's certainly something for me to aspire to. Jeez, thought I was doing well with a few of those 'Plug n Play systems! :lol:

The size of mine is pitiful in comparison...must be a cold morning :)

This is something I've never put online before - so no laughing. It's about 75% of my 3DO collection. I said, Stop laughing! :oops:

Behold! The Panasonic 3DO arcade stick. It's not rare at all in Japan but quite rare in the States and Europe.
Image

Some big box games. Nothing of note really. Apart from my copy of Perfect General is missing and so is Dragon Lore. They are on my desk still. DOH! I'd like to say that Strahl, just peeking from behind Jurassic Park Interactive, is an under-rated game!)
Image

Electronic Arts' 3DO stuff -- They did some unique to Japan stuff too, which I have still to get! Most of the best games for the 3DO came from EAs stable.
Image

The add-on FMV module for the FZ-10. A glut of these came out of Germany recently. I keep missing out on the FZ1 version which I've only ever seen for sale in Japan.
Image

A boxed Japanese FZ-10. Not rare at all. I personally prefer the look of the reguar FZ-1. (Not pictured!)
Image

A boxed Japanese joypad. These are smaller than the standard EU/US ones and significantly nicer to use. No head phone socket though, which is a shame, because, despite people slagging-off the standard 3DO controller, it's addition of headphone jack was one of my favourite features!
Image


Some Japanese 3DO games (Mostly Japanese I think anyway!)
Image

The biggest memory card on Earth :) These are pretty rare, but I've had my FZ-1 for 13 years and it's never ran out of memory and the battery has never failed either.

In general reliability was never a problem for these Panasonic machines. I have never witnessed a Panasonic 3DO unit failing, ever. There are rumours of fuses blowing and being replaced relatively easily with off-the-shelf stuff, and the CD tray seizing on some, but I have 4 of the FZ1 units and I've never had a problem -- Sony, Microsoft, Sega take note!
Image

...more Japanese games.
Image

Studio 3DO did some cracking box-art - pity my photography skills are none-existant! Japanese box-art was the best, even the Japanese versions of the Shockwave and Escape from Monster Manor box-art is better than the EU/US release.
Image

...some 3DO stuff...
Image

Theme Park, so good I bought it twice.
Image

Some Warp stuff -- Ds' Diner: so good I bought it thrice! I do have the first disc to BrainDead 13 too. Somewhere :? ! And a bunch of Live! 3DO Japanese discs but I can't remember where they are! (And I got bored of looking!)
Image

What's not here? I have some concept art for the Star Trek game, some interactive smut and none interactice smut, some other joypads, some loose stuff and some stuff in the post that isn't here yet! And some 3DO magazines and other odds and sods. Hell is misisng, Sherlock Holmes game is missing... plus i have a mountain of duplicates boxless Japanese games that I trade for!

Edit: I even missed off some pics. [Slaps head!]

Dr Hauzer and friends!
Image

Off-World Interceptor and friends! Mostly Crystal Dynamic games.
