Detailed item information

Product Description
The Panasonic 3DO FZ-1 Black Console (PAL) is a video game console released in 1994 that made use of the Panasonic console hardware, such as a custom math co-processor and a 32-bit 12.5 MHz RISC CPU. These and other advanced Panasonic console components allow the Panasonic 3DO FZ-1 to produce video at a 768 x 576 pixel resolution and to interpolate 36-64 MP/second. The 2 MB of main RAM and 1 MB of VRAM were revolutionary at the time of the Panasonic 3DO FZ-1 release, and such features as the FZ-1's Madam graphics accelerator and multitasking 32-bit operating system allow the 3DO console to play games other contemporary systems, such as the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo Entertainment System, could not. The Panasonic 3DO FZ-1 system allows up to eight controllers to be linked together for cooperative or competitive play. This 3DO console uses PAL color encoding, which was once used in parts of Asia, Africa, Australia, and South America.

Some of the best-received titleswere ports of arcade or PC games that other cartridge-based systems of the timewere not capable of playing, such as Alone in theDark,Myst and Star Control II. Other popular titles included TotalEclipse, Jurassic ParkInteractive, Gex, Crash 'n Burn, Slayer, Killing Time, The Need forSpeed, and Immercenary.Additionally, 3DO had the most popular port of Road Rash, and the arcade fighting game Samurai Shodown was ported to the system with all original graphics intact.The first home port of Super StreetFighter II Turbo wasalso available on the system, exceeding the original with its CD-quality audio.

Since itsrelease coincided with the arrival of the modern first-personshooter, the 3DO also had some of the earliest members of the genreas exclusives, such as Escape fromMonster Manor, Killing Time, and PO'ed,as well as ports of Wolfenstein 3D andDoom.

Audio & Video

Unlikenearly all other game consoles, the 3DO does not require a special proprietaryAV cord. Audio/video hookup is achieved one of three ways.

·        RF Switch An RFconnector can be used on older TVs that have no RCA jacks. The 3DO is compatiblewith NES, SNES, Sega Masters, Sega Genesis, & NEC Turbo Grafix RF switches.This provides the lowest video quality.

·        Composite RCA The 3DO, just like the Amiga CD32, hasstandard composite video and audio (red/white/yellow RCA connector on both ends) ports that arecompatible with off the shelf cables like the ones used on DVD players andother video devices.

·        S-Video The 3DO has an S-Video port on the back for the bestpossible picture

·        Power

All 3DO consoles have integrated powersupplies so owners need not worry about using an incorrect AC adapter. Somemodels have cords hardwired to the system,

Basic accessories

Among the accessories shipped standardwith most 3DO systems were a/v and power cables along with one standardcontroller. The 3DO controllers were unique in that the system base unitcontained only one controller port and the controllers could be physically daisy chained together via a port onthe back of each controller. Up to eight controllers could be linked togetherin this fashion. All controllers for each 3DO console are compatible with oneanother.

In addition, standard 3DO controllersreleased with the Panasonic FZ-1 also contained a headphone jack and volumecontrol for silent play. The Goldstar model also included a controller withthis feature.

Third party controllers were produced by anumber of companies including Logitech.




Light gun

The only light gun ever released for the 3DO was the Gamegun, a product of third-party developer American Laser Games.Despite this, no fewer than 10 games with light gun support were produced forthe system. Most of these were arcade ports from American Laser Games(including the infamous Mad Dog McCree), but Virgin Interactive and Digital Pictures also released 3DO light gun games.The 3DO Gamegun uses the same design as the Gamegun released for the Sega CD: an orange "Old West"revolver. Select Gameguns house a controllerport so that another Gamegun may be daisy-chained for two-player gaming, whichis supported in most of American Laser Games's 3DO titles. Though no light gunwas released for the 3DO in Japan, the Japanese localizations of Demolition Man and Corpse Killer retain light gun support, and could be played byJapanese gamers using imported Gameguns.


Panasonic and Logitech both released the 3DO mouse.The Panasonic FZ-JM1 and Logitech 3DO mouse are identical aside from theirmarkings. Fewer than 20 games supported its use, some of which were optimizedfor the standard controller or light gun rather than the mouse. Of the 3DOgames which were optimized for use with the mouse, the most well-known are Myst andLemmings.The Panasonic mouse was also bundled with Konami's Policenauts Limited Editionin Japan which came with a Policenauts mouse pad.

Steering Wheel

Home Arcade Systems released a steering wheel for the3DO which is supported by several racing titles, including The Need for Speed.

FZ-AK1 3DO KaraokeMixer

The Panasonic 3DO Karaoke Mixer allows 3DO owners to play a standardmusic CD, turn the vocals down, plug in one or two microphones and sing overthe music. This unit was not released in all markets

FZ-EM256 3DO Memory Expansion Unit

The Panasonic FZ-EM256 is a 256K Expandable Memory Unit that plugs into the3DO Expansion bay on the back of the console. Released in 1994 and sold inJapan only, but is compatible with all models. It came with a Storage Managerstart up disc that is required to use the unit.
