ThrowBack: See The PlayStation Console Built By Sony And Nintendo


I am sure you are all surprised to find out that Sony and Nintendo built a console together! Well Before Sony released what we all know as the PlayStation, they were developing a console with Nintendo.

Apparently, the two rival companies were once partners for a short time in 1998 where they teamed up to work on SNES-CD, a video game media format that supports higher capacity CDs. However, Nintendo didn’t want Sony to control  the SNES-CD format and a day after Sony introduced the SNES-compatible “Play Station” at CES, Nintendo gave Sony a huge blow by announcing a partnership with Philips to produce an SNES-CD add-on for the SNES.

Now thanks to an Imgur user DanDiebold, we have the chance to view this epic throwback of what could have been the world’s first hybrid/ Nintendo PlayStation, check out the images below:

Thanks to the fallout, the Playstation was born. However, one cannot help but wonder where things would be now if Sony and Nintendo had teamed up
