The 3DO / Konami M2 - the system that almost went to Sega - Total Vice - 2/5

Post#1 » Fri Jan 08, 2021 10:07 am



In Feb I will be doing a virtual convention and I'll be talking about the history of 3DO, the M2 and my collection and beta hunting for it. So I decided to revisit the five full arcade games available for the platform since they are all awesome in their own right AND the run on M2 hardware.

Part of the fun though is the story of how Sega almost bought the M2 hardware platform to supersede the Saturn and become their "next" home console. Glad it fell through because then we would have never had the Dreamcast but it's a fun story I plan on doing a video about eventually!

Great video! I've never heard of the game, but now I'm interested to see the other M2 board games.

Definitely post them and I will watch! Have these games been emulated or is the PCB the only way to play these games?

Interesting

I haven't heard of this one before, and yes it does tread extremely close to The House of the Dead ha!

The game looks completely a copy of HOTD. I am sure this can be port on Sega Saturn also.

Def can't run on Saturn....not unless it was cut down severely.

Far as a copy of HOTD it has more things then that did and it was thought of at about the same time..

Yes it's basically "in the style of House of the Dead" but Evil Night brings plenty of new and fresh ideas to the table
