Summary
  • Several set-top boxes designed to eventually link users to the information superhighway are currently available or under development. Atari's $250 Jaguar game system, which is made by IBM, was a surprise success in test markets during the 1993 Christmas season. Its games titles continue to sell out stores and over 80 third-party licensees have committed to supporting the system. A CD-ROM drive and MPEG decoder will be released in late 1994. The $499 Panasonic Real 3DO Interactive Multiplayer is the first of a new generation of set-top boxes and includes excellent graphics and sound features. Over 200 software titles for 3DO systems are under development, and AT&​T and Sanyo are also developing 3DO-compatible machines. A 3DO modem and an expansion board for IBM-compatible computers are also under development. Pioneer's LaserActive modular entertainment system can be expanded with upgrade packages that give users compatibility with Laser Karaoke, Turbo Duo and Sega CD software. It is priced between $800 for the base model and $1,500 fully loaded.
