Have you seen this?
I can't even imagine how much this would have changed the gaming landscape that we have today.

If you look closely the Yeti & Sasquatch are in the background.

Maybe they were in attendance at the Consumer Electronics Show in 1991, where Sony showcased its Nintendo-endorsed vision for a SNES-CD, which it branded with a "PlayStation" logo.

I bet the Yeti & Sasquatch did team up with Phillips in their quest to build the gaming system of the future. Stupid Sony, what do they know.
Long live Phillips gamings systems...and the Yeti & Sasquatch too!

It is intriguing to think about when you read some of the articles. They state how this and that was "until Sony decided to branch out on their own". I wonder what it would be like if Sony were not forced to branch out. They didn't "choose" to branch out but Nintendo screwed them over...in favor of Philips. I wonder how much Mario would pay to take that decision back.

Nintendo and Sony did come together to work on a new console to take on Sega. But Sony decided to part ways later.

And the Playstation was then introduced.

Shame the guy who had it was a heavy smoker, that yellow nicoteen stain doesn't do it favours.

Once again, Sony didn't just randomly decide to "part ways later". They were branded by Nintendo as the inferior company, basically dismissed from service, and the rest is history.

from the article...
"At the Consumer Electronics Show in 1991, Sony showcased its Nintendo-endorsed vision for a SNES-CD, which it branded with a "PlayStation" logo. Nintendo shocked Sony, however, by suddenly announcing--at the same show--that it would be partnering with electronics firm Phillips instead.

Incensed and embarrassed, the Sony executive Ken Kutaragi began to internally lobby the company to fund plans to build a console without Nintendo's support. The outcome of that plan, also called the PlayStation, brought about a tectonic power-shift in the games business."

I think part of it was that Nintendo reviewed the contract they created with Sony later and discovered that it was written so that Sony would retain a ton of control over the console and ecosystem after its creation. Nintendo did not like that at all and started the split between them. Sony considered scrapping the research and technology they came up with but instead decided to keep going on their own. Thus the PlayStation was born.
