It should come as no surprise I am a fan of the 3DO M2 AND the Sega Dreamcast. As a Dreamcast / Sega fan the fact that Sega no longer makes video game consoles really bums me out…but it didn’t have to be that way! Let’s rewrite retrogaming history!
Did you know Sega almost purchased the M2 technology from the 3DO Company to release an add-on / successor console to the Saturn in 1996? and that by 1999 they could have released the 3DO MX console with a built in DVD rom drive and had a console that was CLOSE to rivaling the PlayStation 2 on the market before Sony even released the PS2? Or that Sega actually coded some game demos for the 3DO M2 in anticipation of releasing the hardware and getting their internal development teams ready to make games for the M2 architecture?
Well all that is true and this is the story of how Sega could have potentially won the Sixth Generation Console War and been successful enough to NOT have to leave the hardware business! Retrogaming would have been so much better had Sega succeeded!
In this episode we will be directly comparing the 3DO M2 vs the Sega Model 2 arcade boards to prove that Sega could have had Model 2 power levels of hardware in a home console in 1996!
