You missed out the other 3DOs:

Goldstar
Panasonic R.E.A.L Interactive multiplayer
Goldstar R.E.A.L. Interactive multiplayer
Panasonic M2 (never completed; Panasonic bought the rights and threw the idea away)
They were made by another manufacturer who's name I don't recall.

The consoles boasted the worst version of Doom ever available (although it is generally considered the one with the best music), Space Hulk, Gex, Alone in the Dark 1+2, Soccer kid, Wing Commander 4, Iron Angel of the Apocalypse 1+2, Slayer and its sequel, Powers Kingdom, etc.

It is notable for not having region coding.
I too use chicken as a measurement.

Quote from: indysmith
Pre-NES i have no idea what that's all about; but it was very interesting to see the years certain things were released, and why they were released (i.e. who they were competing with). It was also quite interesting to see the various release prices of the consoles.
I'm intrigued that i'd never even heard of the nintendo virtual boy - looks interesting!


I wouldn't touch the virtual boy, not if you enjoy having eye sight at least ;)
