Bandai
Pippin @World

The Pippin @World (black model) is the US version of the Pippin Atmark (white model), which was sold in Japan. Apart from the different colored case, both systems are identical.

In the early 90's, several companies tried to market videogame systems based on their computers' technology as those were not selling as much as they should have to. Apple was one of them and designed the Pippin upon the hardware of their second generation Macintosh, like Commodore did with their CD32 based on the Amiga hardware.

The Pippin was first marketed as multimedia / game a machine, but after the flop of the 3DO, they re-launched the Pippin as an an internet appliance that also played games. That didn't work either, because, by the time the Pippin was ready to go, PC prices had dropped a lot.

By the way, pippin is a type of apples.

We need more info about this console ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.

It kind of sounds like an over priced, outdated, junky mac version of the Xbox.
