3DO
スリーディーオー
4 Oct 1993 (US) 20 Mar 1994 (Japan)
 
 
There are many ways of remembering the 3DO, and fondly is not one of them. It was a rushed and poorly thought out format, released just as the 16-bit era of the Mega Drive and Super Famicom was coming to a close, and the 32-bit Sega Saturn and PlayStation were looming on the horizon.
Arrogantly thrust upon an unsuspecting public in late 1993, the 3DO was noisily presented as a must-have 'technological standard', that was to 'ease customer confusion' in a marketplace 'swamped by too many formats'.
In truth it was nothing but a brazen attempt by some of the industry's most dictatorial greedheads to challenge the established market dominance of Sega and Nintendo, and seize it as their own.
What they failed to understand was that Sega and Nintendo were leaders for a reason: they produced excellent games. 3DO's problem was that they focused all of their efforts on technological wizardry and deceitful marketing, with next to no regard towards software quality control.
The format's eventual withdrawal from the market in 1996 was inevitable and long overdue. Yet the chain of events surrounding its cringe-worthy lifespan and hilarious demise make for an interesting story.

3DO HISTORY

 

Trip Hawkins



Matsushita HQ


Original FZ-1 'REAL' model
 
'The 3DO Company' was founded in 1991 under the moniker of 'SMSG Inc.', by Electronic Arts co-founder Trip Hawkins.
By this time EA was one of the largest software publishers in the world, having entered the market as early as 1983 with a flurry of home computer releases that skillfully tapped into the expanding PC market of the 80s.
While a few interesting titles exist, most of their success came in the field of celebrity-endorsed sports games, with titles like 'Jordan vs Bird One on One Basketball', 'Earl Weaver Baseball' and 'John Madden Football'.
They always sold well - mostly thanks to their name rather than content. It was a clever marketing trick: EA were evidently cunning opportunists, ready to seize every buck in a young, inexperienced and rapidly expanding industry rather than contribute anything of lasting artistic value.
Having spent most of the 80s ignoring consoles (and arcades) in favour of home computers, Hawkins suddenly decided to enter the booming Mega Drive market in 1990. This volte-face belied what was slowly becoming EA's notorious greed and lack of ethics. They even went as far as brokering a specific deal to allow them to manufacture their own cartridges, to avoid licensing fees and maximise profits. Cue another seamlessly endless stream of sensationalist, brand-endorsed and immediately disposable software for the Mega Drive, most of which had little or no merit beyond its year of release.
Be it golf simulators, American football games, or bikini-clad bimbos crashing luxury cars into each other, EA have always been happy to oblige. Their legacy is one of never ending sports 'franchises' updated on a yearly basis, released at maximum cost and supplanted the following year. So, with a coffer full of cash and egos on the peak, it's easy to understand why they considered the next step to be nothing less than total industry control.
News of the 3DO project first leaked in 1992 when the machine was officially announced at a press conference during the Winter CES (Consumer Electronics Show). By then Hawkins' idea of creating a new video game console had morphed into an all-new business concept: The 3DO Company would provide a set of 'pre-determined hardware specifications' that would then be licensed out to external manufacturers.
First to sign up for hardware duty were electronics giants Matsushita Panasonic, while media conglomerates AT&T, Time Warner, and (now-defunct) MCA all promising support. All of these names were giants in their respective fields, but in truth none of them had any experience in the games business.
The recipe was enough to strike fear in the hearts of anyone with an even vague understanding of what makes a good game. But the suits were jumping for joy - an outrageously loud marketing campaign was already in full swing, promising punters and pundits alike that 'over 50 third party developers' had been recruited to develop on the machine, and that the 3DO was destined to become 'more commonplace than the VCR'.
Hawkins himself had become completely completely out of control by this point, caught up in a deluded, self-induced fever of self-promotion; ranting and raving incessantly with hilarious one-liners like "It plugs straight into the future" and "It's going to be the single most important invention since the printed word".
The first 3DO unit, the Panasonic FZ-1 R-E-A-L ('Realistic Entertainment Active Learning' apparently) eventually launched in the US on the 10th of October 1993, with a suggested retail price of $699.95.
 

 
 
The five 3DO launch titles (10 October 1993) Look out: the 'next level in interactive entertainment' is here

 

Crash'n Burn
 
Besides the outrageously high price of the machine, there was a minor issue that completely eluded the head honchos at 3DO: software. The five launch titles (above) broke all records in terms of poor quality.
Regardless of this the specialist gaming press remained inexplicably optimistic and the 3DO advertising campaign reached boiling point: 'The Next Level of Interactive Entertainment is here'.
Which was true - the only thing they failed to mention was what kind of level they were talking about. Never before (and since) has such utter junk hit the screen for the launch of new hardware. How on earth did something like this happen? Didn't a single person at 3DO know the basic foundations of what makes a good game?
The video game press (and buying public) have always been easily serenaded by new technologies, but that couldn't have been their only strategy. Or was it?
 

 
 
The 6 Japanese launch titles (20 March 1994)

 

Ultraman Powered
 

Following its disappointing debut in Western territories, all eyes turned toward the Japanese launch date of 20 March 1994. But sadly the lineup was just as pisspoor.
Amusingly it was Bandai's 'Ultraman Powered' (left) that ended up as the most entertaining title of the bunch, but for all the wrong reasons: it was so atrocious, corny and kitsch that it paid perfect tribute to the series it was based upon.

The second batch of titles couldn't arrive too soon. When they eventually did, it was clear which direction the 3DO was taking. It was not a 'games' machine in the traditional sense, no - it was an 'interactive multiplayer' of 'immersive experiences'.

For the best example of this, look no further than Dragon's Lair (1983) - the ultimate anti-game, in which the player must randomly guess (then memorise) a pre-set button sequence in order to, er, watch a cartoon.

 

 
 
Week 2 in Japan (26 March 1994) and six more nuggets of shit flick off the 3DO fan

 

Starblade
 

Each time you load up a 3DO game the same thing happens: obnoxious company logo animations, cheap live-action films, loading screens... Every angle is covered to distract you from the fact that the game itself is utter garbage.
While the machine's 3D capabilities were ok, truth is they were nothing special by mid 1994. With the likes of Ridge Racer (1993) and Daytona USA (1993) setting new graphical standards and their PlayStation and Sega Saturn iterations looming on the horizon, average PC-style games just don't cut any mustard - at all.
It's a genuinely sorry state of affairs when the first good game to get released on the machine was the three-year-old Starblade (1991), and even that shouldn't be considered as the future of gaming.
Amusingly Starblade was eventually bundled with some 3DO units, so maybe there was one person at 3DO who knew what they were doing.

Music Player
 
It's a shame that the 3DO was so lacking in terms of software because it has everything it needs in the hardware stakes. The technology itself was more than adequate, and it was supported by a good range of add-ons and accessories.
The multiplayer system was worthy of particular note: the machine included only one controller port, and despite the poor joypad design featured another port on each controller. Up to 8 players can be 'daisy-chained' with no multiplayer adaptor required.
The operating system was simple and easy to use, and the Audio CD player was one of the first to feature ambient on-screen visuals that moved along with the music. MPEG-1 Video-CD playback could be enabled by adding an external device.
One major downside is that the machine does not output RGB - it only features (rather blurry) composite video.

Super Street Fighter II X
 
By late 1994, the other licensed manufacturers had released their own models (above) and the price dropped to a more reasonable level, but it was too late - the Sega Saturn and PlayStation had arrived, blowing the 3DO away in every field imaginable. The party was over.
When it comes down to it, the 3DO just didn't have enough quality software. Its library consists entirely of unimaginative conversions of established PC games (Wolfenstein 3D, Myst, Alone in the Dark, Wing Commander, Star Control II, Flashback) and its exclusive content is just mediocre (Gex, Off-World Interceptor, Captain Quazar).
In retrospect the only 4-star game ever to appear on the 3DO was a superb version of Capcom's Super Street Fighter II X (1994). It remains one of the best ports of the game to this very day - but even that is offset by the added expense of two 6-button joysticks.
 

 
 
 
 
The cream of the crop: the best the 3DO has to offer?

 


M2 demo


M2 Prototype

 
Things started looking really bleak when almost every single successful 3DO title (see above) started appearing on the Sega Saturn and PlayStation, often in superior form. Exclusive content dwindled to a near halt.
The 3DO Company started blaming an 'over-saturated market' and 'lack of third party support', but they were wrong. This was a purely self-induced disaster - the hideous brainchild of some of the most despicable and sleazy ten-percenters to ever crawl out of the game industry's rotten woodwork.
The last few months of the 3DO's lifespan were marred by the constant promise of a 'Mark 2 Accelerator' upgrade, expected to (wait for it...) 'break new ground in digital entertainment'.
Seriously - these guys never give up. Matsushita were in so deep with the partnership that they went full steam ahead with the project, first announcing it as an add-on upgrade unit, then as a separate format altogether.
The hardware was finalized and prototypes were produced (left), but the project was eventually canned. The technology was sold off, ultimately used in commercial advertising equipment and ATM cash machines.
Interestingly, having agreed to use the technology Konami released five arcade games based on M2 hardware: Polystars (1997), Total Vice (1997), Battle Tryst (1998), Evil Night / Hell Night (1998) and Heat Of Eleven '98 (1998).
The 3DO Company battled on briefly as a software company before vanishing altogether in 2003. Hawkins is still around, working his magic in the ever creative field of mobile gaming.
Oh well. These people are bound to find something they're good at eventually. They are after all, men of valour.
