About the Apple Pippin


1. General Informations (source : Wikipedia)

Apple never intended to release Pippin on its own. Instead it intended to license the technology to third parties, a business model similar to that of the ill-fated 3DO; Bandai was looking at entering the console video game market, and chose the Pippin as its platform. Much later Katz Media also entered production, planning to use the platform as a low cost PC with web ability.

By the time the Bandai Pippin was released (1995 in Japan; 1996 in the United States), the market was dominated by the Sega Saturn, Sony PlayStation, and soon Nintendo 64. In addition there was little ready-to-use software for Pippin, the only major publisher being Bandai itself. It cost US$599 on launch,[1] and touted as a cheap computer, the system, in reality, was commonly identified as a video game console. As such, its price was considered too expensive in comparison to its contemporaries.

2. List of Japanese titles [Catalog Number]

First of all, I would like to say that this list is the most complete and accurate you will ever find on the internet. I compiled it myself after spending countless of hours googling on multiple sites and netsurfing on reliable forums to get informations and photos of the games to have a real proof of the existence of the games. If you know any game which is not on this list, please let me know and I will add it as soon as possible.
