The great FPS game released in 1996. It was the early era of PS1 games, but Insomniac games worked hard to pack in their shooter the stunning graphics and cool gameplay. Initially planned for the 3DO M2, but the project was shifted to the PlayStation, thanks to Mark Cerny. After that, Insomniac started to make their own most successful game - Spyro. #ps1 #psx #insomniacgames #spyro #ps1games #playstation #playstation1 #disruptor #3do #3dom2

A great contribution from a German gentleman on eBay. He was kind enough to give me great high resolution photos of this FZ-JP2X controller by Panasonic that is not licensed by 3DO and was sold with particular M2 kiosk units. #Archive3DO #3DOM2 #3DO

“M2 has a wide mouth” Looping my 3DO M2 FZ-DR21, the dev version of the unreleased M2, sequel to the 3DO, cancelled in 1997. It’s technology was later used for vending machines and automated teller machines. Music composed with #teenageengineering #pocketoperator Arcade and #valhallashimmer reverb. Thanks to @fedeweb76 for fueling my electronic music passion. My M2 is as new, with all parts and box. I think I have also some software... #unreleased #panasonicm2 #3DOM2 #hardware #retrogaming #retrogames #chiptune #panasonic3do #3DO #gamescollection #gamescollector #videogames #rare #ultrarare

Code named Marvin, 3DO would develop a Cirrus based graphics card power by the Bulldog GPU. This card would be compatible with Direct X and have drivers of its own for maximum usage of the hardwares capabilities. The Cirrus chip would handle display only and the Bulldog would handle rendering. This is the only known, tangible, physical, card in existence currently. If you're interested in more detail on this item check out Video Game Esoterica on YouTube, as he has uploaded a hands-on video with the card, or my website under the M2 category. #3DO #3DOM2 #Archive3DO

Here is the case art I made, up close! #3DOM2 #3DO #Archive3DO

A huge thank you to my good friend @chicagogamecollector for letting me be a part of his M2 project. Over the course of the past year he has been slowly working towards this goal with an M2 developer. This past month I got the opportunity to design the case art pictured and tease it with a previous post. After getting this demo disc up and running he released the ISO in his latest YouTube video for anyone who has the ability to play it with M2 hardware. The project was featured in Eurogamer as well. Once in December of 2019 and just today as well. He has huge plans for the M2 coming and I only wish I had a kiosk unit so I could join in on the fun. For those of you who can, go grab it and give it a whirl. There's been a tremendous amount of time and money put towards this project and everyone involved with this project genuinely hope, for those who can, will enjoy it. #3DOM2 #3DO #Archive3DO

In collaboration with @chicagogamecollector and another source who wishes to be unidentified, a new fresh piece of 3DO software will be revealed at the end of January. This is its case... of course I can't reveal it as of yet, but, I can show you this out of focus image. I also will not reveal it's platform (Opera/M2). The case art is a custom design, and will look great on any shelf without feeling out of place. #Archive3DO #3DO #3DOM2

The 2D shooter demo for the M2. Even through VGA, this is just not impressive. Then again, it was also just a few developers screwing around with hardware that wasn’t going anywhere. #videogames #retrogaming #2dshooter #3dom2 #panasonicfz35s

Preview of Clayfighter 3, for the sadly canceled 3DO M2. Pretty tragic, as I think the M2 could have been something very special. #3DO #3DOM2 #retrovideogames #vintagegaming #retrogamingmagazine

Hardware Week Day 6! I debated between posting the 3DO M2 arcade unit or kiosk, but the kiosk looks like nothing top down haha. The 3DO M2...a console that almost made release! Somehow I collected eight of these...way too many! 🤣 . . . #3do #3dom2 #panasonic3do #konami #arcadegames #cancelledgame #gamecollecting #gamecollection #gamecollector #instagamer #instagaming #videogames #videogamecollector #videogamecollection #videogamecollecting #importgaming #retrogaming #retrogames #retrogamer #videogames #videogamer #videogaming #videogame #gamer #gaming #videogames #gaminglife #gamerlife #oldschoolgaming #retrocollective #videogameaddict

Here's another 3DO Live! Magazine demo disc! The CD-ROM #7 is especially important because it contains the first trailer for the cancelled D2 for the 3DO M2 (Multiplayer 2) console. It's possibly one of the best and most provocative trailers to a video I have ever seen. It's on the level of Death Stranding. @hideo_kojima would appreciate the quirky genius of Kenji Eno. #demodisc #demo #3do #3domultiplayer #3dom2 #d2 #d #enemyzero #kenjieno #gaming #retrogaming #survivalhorror #deathstranding #hideokojima

Footage from my M2 machine. The first is a simple vertical shooter with pictures and overdone explosion effects. The second is IMSA Racing, a very VERY impressive looking racing game for 1996. It’s a pity we never got to see what this tech could really do. #videogames #retrogaming #m2 #3dom2 #vaporware #prototype

I’ve touched upon the M2 before. This powerhouse hardware was intended to succeed the 3DO before it was scrapped. However, with the chipset already made, units containing M2 hardware were repurposed into service machines squandering their power to run kiosks and DVDs. The Panasonic FZ35S is one of these machines. However, thanks to the 3DO controller port on the back, it is perfectly capable of running the few bits of prototype M2 software out there. I am very pleased to add this holy grail to my collection. On Sunday, I’ll post some game footage when I get back from Cleveland. #videogames #retrogaming #3dom2 #m2 #panasonicfz35s #3do

The Cirrus Logic 3DO M2 prototype graphics card. I don’t normally post hardware, but when something so rare and esoteric comes into my hands I can’t help myself! 1 of 1 known to exist. Maybe there’s another somewhere? Who knows! . . . #3do #3dom2 #graphicscard #prototype #raregames #oneofakind #holygrail #gamecollecting #gamecollection #gamecollector #instagamer #instagaming #videogames #videogamecollector #videogamecollection #videogamecollecting #importgaming #retrogaming #retrogames #retrogamer #videogames #videogamer #videogaming #videogame #gamer #gaming #videogames #gaminglife #gamerlife #oldschoolgaming #retrocollective #videogameaddict
