    Default I wonder if there is a world record for longest 3DO controller chain.

    Sure the max the 3DO system can use is 8 but that doesn't mean you can't keep chaining them after the 8th cotroller so if someone used all the 3DO controllers in the world how long would the chain be?
    What's up with islands? Get more land.
    What's up with deserts? Get less sand.

    Not as long as plugging every Sega Genesis extension cord into each other with the longest controller available at the end. Then you could have someone stream your gameplay progress to you from as far as Florida to Washington via Skype as you try to combat the input lag from both the video and the electrical signal being sent through all those cords. It will last as long as it takes for someone to drive over your cables and destroy them, breaking the chain. The FBI might destroy it for fear you are creating a top secret communications device for some terrorist plot. Who needs remote play when you have crazy ideas like that?

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]

    I like where this thread is going...


    How about tallest Sega Genesis Game Genie stack? With Sonic & Knuckles + Sonic 3 on top, of course.

    Hell imagine chaining all the Sega Genesis extension cords combine with all the 3DO contollers.

    PROTIP:

    If you were to take an average man's vains, arteries, intestines, all his bones and muscles, and lay them end to end in a straight line, that man would die.

    Actually, due to signal degradation, you'd probably be lucky if it would work for more than a hundred feet or so.

    Given the small amount of 3DOs that were sold, probably not long at all.
