Panasonic FZ-1 3DO (#FZ-1)

The first company to develop a system with the 3DO technology was Panasonic with their FZ-1. The FZ-1 was a front loading system with a motorized disc tray. On the side, a port for expansion and contained 32kB of battery back up for saving games. When it released, the price was $699.99 USD. With the system you got one controller, AV cables, and a demo disk.

The power cord was hardwired to the system, but here are the specifications: AC 120V 60Hz 30W

Because the 3DO had only one controller port, all controller daisy-chained off of Player 1's controller. Some controllers had plugs directly on the controller to plug in Player 2, some had second cords to plug into.
