Random: Rather Than Pay A Fortune For The Legendary SNES PlayStation, One Man Built His Own

The dream of the ’90s is finally here!

The discovery of the SNES PlayStation sent shockwaves through the gaming community back in 2015. A collaboration between Sony and Nintendo, the unit was intended to meet the challenge of CD-based systems like the Mega CD and TurboDuo, but it was never released; Nintendo infamously left Sony at the altar and signed a deal with rival Philips (which ultimately led to nothing more than a few Nintendo games on the ill-fated Philips CD-i).

Despite the failure of the venture, prototype SNES PlayStations were made by Sony, and the one discovered in 2015 has since been sold for $360,000 USD. That’s a lot of loose change for a system which doesn’t have much in the way of unique software, so gamer_lafan / LASTFANTASY created his own take on the project. He’s even gone as far as to print bespoke spine art for games; check out his copy of King of Fighters ’98.
