I only ever played a 3DO in a Software Etc. No one I knew ever convinced their parents to shell out the cash to buy this back in the day. Since it didn’t have RPGs (that I can recall) in its library, I never petitioned my own being perfectly happy with my SNES and Genesis. It’s price tag back then just turned so many people off.
That and the TG16. I did know a kid who had a TG16 mobile. I remember playing Bonk on it.
I remember this system but never own or played it. I dunno about other areas of the USA, but over in NJ/NY metro area, there wasn’t that much advertisement for it as far i recall. Atari jaguar was another with it’s attempt on more 3D graphic gaming console. The market was mostly dominated by Sega and Nintendo with Genesis and SNES. There were many attempts for more 3D gaming hitting consoles but I don’t think it really took off until Playstation hit off.
