Gaming Ads: The 3DO Company

Originally founded in 1991 as San Mateo Software Games by Trip Hawkins, The 3DO Company designed the 3DO game console while other companies -- most notably Panasonic -- built the hardware. The system launched in 1993 at a very high price point of $699.99. There was plenty of competition from Sega and Nintendo at the time and Sony was not far behind, entering the video game market in 1995 (1994 in Japan) with the PlayStation and its $299.99 price. In 1996 the 3DO console was discontinued while The 3DO Company found some success as a software developer and publisher. They're best known for the development of the Army Men and High Heat Baseball games.
