Matsushita sets 3DO tech

REDWOOD CITY — Japanese electronic giant Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd. is launching an interactive multiplayer using technology pioneered by 3DO this week in Japan, the Redwood City-based company said Thursday.

The 3DO multiplayer, which allows television viewers to interact with programs or games, will be sold under the Panasonic brand name for about $ 500.

Matsushita is a 3DO licensee and a major investor in the company, along with other electronics, entertainment, telecommunications and software companies seeking to create a new market for interactive software.

About 11 software titles will be launched with the multiplayer, including titles developed specifically or adapted for the Japanese market.
