Gotcha. I wonder if more expensive 3DO games like this were just produced in limited quantities? That, for example, is the issue with the high prices on a lot of Japanese Megadrive games. Gir Draxa said at one point that Lucienne's Quest was recalled from stores by Panasonic as 3DO was on its death...

Do you have any test/measurement equipment? DMM or oscilloscope?

The first thing to try would be to reflow the solder at the pins of the DB-9 port on the board.

It's not. That controller was in an auction with a Panasonic FZ-1 system, where the seller thought it belonged with the 3DO console.

A complete in box copy is probably going to cost you more on the 3DO than it will on the Jaguar, which may or may not be a concern. I see Robinson's Requiem on Ebay for the Jaguar for $59.95. In addition to costing more on the 3DO, it is also going to be more difficult to find a complete 3DO version.

Yes, most of them come in the snapper box style. The Eye of Typhoon and Armageddon are the two instances, that I know of, where the games are not packaged in the snapper box.
