The PlayStation

The Playstation is the product of Sony's desire to gain a foot in the video game market and a business deal with Nintendo gone bad. Way back in 1992, Nintendo revealed to gamers it's intentions for making a Snes CD add-on. The Snes Cd boasted FMV, digitized video and audio, and bigger and brighter games (for those of you that had Nintendo Powers, check out the April '92 NP.) In order to make the Snes CD, Nintendo struck a deal with Sony. Halfway through development Nintendo pulled out. Not wanting to waste all their work, Sony decided to use their research from the Snes CD to make a new system. After a lot of changes, such as the addition of real-time 3d graphics, a midi music chip, new controllers, etc., Sony had the Playstation.
