DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know PlayStation was originally planned to be a Super Nintendo add-on? Dating back to 1988, the console was originally a joint project between Nintendo and Sony. The project aimed to develop a CD-ROM for the Super Famicon (also known as Super Nintendo Entertainment System). However, by some twist of fate, a day after Sony announced that Super Famicon will soon have a built-in CD-ROM, Nintendo dropped the bombshell, denouncing its partnership with Sony. According to some news, a disagreement on the profit-sharing and licensing have drawn the line between the two. Nintendo’s chairman Hiroshi Yamauchi wanted a complete control and ownership that surely infuriated Sony’s President Norio Ohga, resulting to the appointment of Ken Kutaragi, a Sony executive, to pioneer the development of PlayStation. After spearheading the creation of Sony’s PlayStation under Sony Interactive Entertainment, Kutaragi together with other executives successfully developed the first PlayStation.
The first version came out as a rival of Nintendo’s console because of its competitive market price and specs, being a CD-ROM-based console. After the first released, a lot of game developers surfaced, and a number of console games hit the market following the release of the succeeding versions of PlayStation such as PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 Pro to name a few. Indeed, this multinational corporation has surely succeeded in becoming a global leader in consumer electronics, ranging from smart TVs, gaming consoles, music, laptops, and cameras, grossing an estimated revenue of 68 billion U.S. dollars is the fiscal year of 2017.
