Spurred on by the success of newcomer Sony in the video game market, Apple teamed up with Bandai to produce their own entrance, utilizing the same disc-based technology used by the PlayStation and Sega Saturn of the time. The Pippin was largely a stripped down Macintosh, running a modified version of Macintosh System 7.5. The Pippin would end as a commercial failure, having too high of a price at $599, and too few games available to warrant such an investment.
