The Creative Labs 3DO-Blaster is a PC-Card with a complete 3DO-Console onboard. The Grafic is displayed on the PC-Monitor through
overlay (uses the Feature Connector of the VGA-Board). The 3DO-Blaster needed the Panasonic CDR 563B CD-ROM Drive. No ohter drives
are working! This CD-Drive was very rare at that time.
On the 3DO-Blaster Board were Connectors for the Feature-Connector of the VGA-Board and the 3DO-Multimedia-Bus. This Multimedia-Bus was used for the VideoCD-Expansion and the planned 3DO-M2 Upgrade. Every 3DO-Model had this BUS-System. But there were never released any Expansions for the 3DO-Blaster-Card. Even the 3DO-M2 was only previed as an prototype in a stand-alone-version. It was never released.
As Systemrequierements for the 3DO-Blaster was a PC386 with an 1MB VGA-Card good enough. This can be explained cause the Blaster uses the PC only to overlay the Grafik.
The 3DO-Blaster Driversoftware was delivered on an 3,5" Disc and instelled on the Harddisc. So it had been possible to edit saved games and such things. But such a software was never released.
The Production of the 3DO-Blaster was stopped imediately. Now the System is a absolute rarity.
