In the early 1990’s, the price and interest in personal computers was not as it used to be. Many companies were converting their devices into so called video game consoles in order to capitalize on the industry. Even Apple fell into this category. They took their second generation Power Macintosh, and slimmed it down to a console like device. They then began to license out the technology similar to what was being done by 3DO.
The first company to license the Apple Pippin technology was Japanese toy and anime publisher Bandai. Pippin technology made its debut in Japan in December 1995 and the software, in general, is harder to find than the system itself.
