I saw a commercial by Sega claiming that Sega CD was more powerful than 3DO.

Are they right? Go!

It certainly is a better console, however.

Agree to disagree lol.

Much as I enjoy Sonic CD, NBA Jam, Snatcher, and Final Fight.

I prefer my Gex, SSF2X, SamSho, Crash N Burn, Need for Speed, Sailor Moon, Policenauts and Iron Apocalypse Returns!

SCD wasn’t a console, though.

The trouble with the Sega CD was, given the processing and RAM limitations there wasn't much they could do with all that extra CD-ROM space - just throw on a few more levels, have an orchestrated soundtrack, or put in FMV so grainy you often couldn't make out what was going on. The 3DO reached the point in technology where the CD medium could actually enhance the games.

At the same time, because it was a standalone console rather than an add-on to a cartridge console, the 3DO wasn't deluged by ports of cartridge games with obligatory CD enhancements. With a few exceptions, 3DO games were either built around the advantages of CD or didn't bother to use the extra CD space at all.

Sega CD had some cool games for sure, but overall 3DO wipes the floor with it. It's not even fair to compare them.

And as far as which one is more powerful, just look at a game like Star Fighter.
