GOLDSTAR

3DO PLAYER

The most popular non-Panasonic 3DO player ever marketed, the Goldstar model was plagued by a lot of hardware faults. This faults were reported also on video game magazines and on the still popular 3DO-related newsgroup (rec.games.video.3do). This unit was marketed in North America, East Asia and Europe (UK and Germany only, as far as I know). Note that the version sold in Germany was the only 3DO player that was available on that market!
