    Lol, PS was created because Nintendo stabbed Sony in the back (and so did SEGA)

    Ouch. What irony.

    In the wake of Sony's post-E3 press run, some interesting things are coming out. Here's a little humor to start the morning, lol. Mark Cerny at his PS4 talk, did give history of PSOne. Buuut, he didn't mention THIS one, lol.

    Oh well. Thank You Nintendo..... for Playstation O_o.. Lol.


    http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2013/...he_playstation


    Highlights:

    "It’s a well-known fact that the PlayStation started life as an add-on for the Super NES. Sony and Nintendo didn’t see eye-to-eye, though, and the latter stabbed its would-be ally in the back by announcing a partnership with Philips.

    However, before opting to go it alone, the manufacturer actually tried to strike a deal with SEGA."

    "Fascinatingly, SEGA actually agreed, and it formed a developer called Digital Pictures..."

    "All that Kalinske had to do was convince the people at the top of SEGA’s board – but they were having none of it. “They basically turned me down,” remembered the ex-industry veteran. “They said: ‘That’s a stupid idea, Sony doesn’t know how to make hardware. They don’t know how to make software either. Why would we want to do this?’ That is what caused the division between SEGA and Sony, and caused Sony to become our competitor and launch its own hardware platform.”"

    Well technically things aren't coming out now. They've been well known in the industry. The history is just being revisited, which may be new to some, and is still worth a refresher, it's not new.

    This was the suppose to be the vaporware SNES CD-ROM with Nintendo & Sony working together. Too bad for Nintendo to betray Sony, joined Phillips that resulted in the horrible Philip CD-i Zelda and Mario games:



    While Sony went to produce the now legendary Playstation console.

    Sony helped make the superior sound chip for the snes and then nintendo just layed them off of any future.
    sega insulted sony by saying they cant do hardware and have no experience in games.

    Sony seriously went home and did there revenge plan lol. Good on them, they are better in tune to fans then nintendo and sega and even microsoft. So im glad they took that hate and made playstation. Revenge was served extra cold

    Yup, Ken Kutaragi was supposedly furious when Nintendo decided to drop their partnership with Sony. He had to jump through some hoops to eventually get the PlayStation funded and developed, but after all was said and done, Sony dethroned Nintendo.

    And MS only got in the console business to stop Sony from dominating. The cycle continues!

    I have seen many companies enter and leave the video game console biz over the years. This makes me wonder who will be the next big player.

    I remember the head CEO didn't want anything to do with Gaming and Ken had to convince him to work with Nintendo
    After Nintendo announced they was working with Phillips at a event they invited Sony, the CEO had a change of heart and wanted revenge for dishonoring them
    I believe the words to Ken was "do it"

    They were afraid SONY was going to release an operating system to rule the living room, lol.
    PS2 and 3 both supported Linux so yeah, they had a right to be scared.

    Hopefully the Xbone fails miserably and they can restructure and focus on making a good core Windows and leave the console business.

    The funny thing is that Nintendo announced their deal with Phillips, a few days after Sony went public about them working with Nintendo for the add-on

    Actually MS wanted to put Windows on PS2, which Sony obviously rejected.

    And hopefully the X1 doesn't fail, and MS stays in the console business, so there'll still be competition which is the best thing for us as customers.

    I believe there's an actual website detailing the whole event a lot more as part of the history of Playstation
    I'm on my Phone at the mo but I'll post it if I come across it my laptop.

    Sony was going to make a console anyway and planned to after helping Nintendo, Nintendo didn't want them knowing the ins and outs of their system so Sony could have the upper hand and just dropped them in one of the worst ways possible. This just pissed Sony off to the point were they went into attack mode
