One of the few things that the gaming world has beet buzzing about as of late is the rare Nintendo-PlayStation prototype console which was developed back in the early 90’s. There are of hardcore gamers who know the story behind the fallout between Nintendo and Sony back in the early 90’s as it pertained to both companies doing business with each other. Both Sony & Nintendo were expected to release a joint console that accepted CD-ROM’s opposed to cartridges sometimes during the mid 90’s possibly 1994. The Nintendo-PlayStation was never officially released which lead to Sony & Nintendo competing against each other since the 90’s. While Sony created their own game console known as the PS1 that utilized CD-ROM’s Nintendo had eventually released the cartridge-based N64 console during ’96. Based on how the console wars went from the mid 90’s to the early 00’s many would agree that Nintendo’s fallout with Sony back in ’94 was far more detrimental to company than it was helpful during the long run.

While the Nintendo-PlayStation console was never officially released a prototype version of the game system has been subjected to very high bids by gamers as of late. The bidding for the retro Nintendo-PlayStation prototype has recently exceeded $200,000 which is something that is very had to believe. But at the same time its not to hard to believe that the Nintendo-PlayStation prototype is value at over $200,000 since a very small number of people around the world has ever played a video game on it. While the Nintendo-PlayStation console may not seem like such a big deal to contemporary gamers it was such a big deal back in the early 90’s because it looked like it was ahead of its time. The idea of having a console that accepted SNES-cartridges along with CD based games seemed really innovative back in the 90’s especially since we never saw another console during that time period that included both of those features. While the bidding prices for Nintendo-PlayStation prototype console seems outrageous at over $200,000 its not too surprising to many because its very unlikely that you will find it at a used video game store. Also, the cartridge/CD-ROM based prototype console from ’94 was quite possibly the first and only console that the world was ever going to see from Nintendo & Sony.
