The 3DO's original retail price was $699 US dollars in 1993. This retail price is often cited as a major factor for the system's commercial failure as most consumers were unwilling to pay such an exorbitant price for a game console back then. Potential consumers complained about this price point, deeming it too expensive for a video game system. One 3DO executive allegedly responded to this criticism and reportedly said "the 3DO is not a video game system, but a multimedia entertainment system and is priced accordingly."
