Khali: There is no way it will be out at Christmas. The dev kits only got
to 3rd parties recently. And no, you can't have my doorstop. It is next to
my SNES, Megadrive, 3DO and Atari. Sadly someone nicked my spectrum from
college years ago. :(

Trip Hawkins is busy working on games. There is a rumour about them trying
to launch another machine. We wait.

It died due to lack of marketing and little 3rd pary support.

Also they did a campaign with the strapline "Dont but a Dodo, buy a 3DO."
Error. The also bagged Edge and stuck some feathers in it. Ho ho. How

Damian: Playstation 2 is slated to be out as early as...this Christmas. I
think it will be more like Q1 or Q2 2000. This from an inside source.
Regarding your doorstep Playstation, can I have it? Ill exchange it with my
Sega Genesis, its a better doorstop. I have two TVs but one PS, and would
love to play multi-link :)

PS: What happened to Trip Hawkins of 3DO (was it Trip Hawkins?)...I must
admit, I have got my Panasonic 3DO wrapped-up and sitting next to my 1985
Apple Mac SE 30 (with internal HD!). One day, they will be worth...A
MILLION DOLLARS (little finger nears corner of mouth, evil laughter emerges
and tappers off.)

Mind you, 3DO was ahead of its time - for sure - at a time when most were 24
bit cartridge based systems, I could play superb games like FIFA and Need
for Speed, with superior graphics, listen to CDs and it DID look good with
my AV unit. Why did it have to die such a slow, painful death? I am
actually writing a piece on it and your opinions will be appreciated.
