An interesting thing in the Wolfenstein 3D Manual

In the manual for Wolfenstein 3D it says the following:

Wolfenstein 3D Copyright 1992,1993,1994,1995 ID Software INC. All rights reserved. 3DO/M2 Version Copyright 1995 ID Software INC. Software developed for the operation of the 3DO/M2 Version of Wolfenstein 3D....

I just found it odd that it mentions the M2. Does anybody know why it says this?

I thought so, does anybody know why it would say this?

I found another interesting piece of information in the Wolf 3D manual, it's not related to the M2 but it's still interesting.

Interplay has a system upgrade policy. At any time after purchasing any Interplay product, you may send us your original disks and a check for $15.00 (U.S. Funds) and we will replace your disks with the version for another computer system that you specify. (This price is subject to change)
I had Wolf 3D for the PC back when it was new, so according to this if I would have bought a 3DO system I could have sent in my PC disks and got the 3DO version for only $15. That is awesome!

It does say you can do this ANYTIME after purchasing an interplay product. Last time I checked 2011 is still anytime :twisted:

Haven't a clue ... but now I'm tempted to go through all my manuals and see if there is anything similar. 8)
