The CREATIVE 3DO Blaster was a PC card that integrated 3DO hardware with a VGA capture device. This device paired with the proper software would allow for the PC to overlay the video output from the card to a window in Win3.1. The card came with 3 software titles: Shockwave, Gridders, and Sampler disc #2. Hardware packaged with the device was a Logitech Control Pad 1 with the Creative logo printed on the front. The card is believed to be limited to the CR-56X series cd-rom drive series (CR-563-B pictured above), though others have claimed to pair it with faster drives than the original 2x that it was intended for. The CR-56X series drives are Panasonic designed compact disc drives that are used in R-E-A-L 3DO systems (CR-560) and PC’s.
